Harsh beats for dark times. The sounds of Amelia Arsenic are an infectious injection of high-energy beats infused with feminine allure. Amelia is a visual artist and fashion designer originally from Sydney, but having toured extensively throughout Europe and the USA since 2007 as a musician and DJ. She was first known to fans of industrial music, as DestroyX, a founding member of cyberpunk band Angelspit.
After leaving her old band and taking a brief hiatus from music to focus on visual art and fashion design, Amelia now presents her solo project; a singular vision of broken and beautiful sounds and personal yet playful lyrics.
Her debut EP "Carbon Black" written with Pete Crane & Ben Bulig (Shiv-R), is a genesis of fresh electronic sounds drawing from hip hop, electro and industrial music. Switching between melodic and spoken vocals, the lyrical themes go from party-mode to provocative pathos effortlessly, painting a self-portrait within an underground zeitgeist.
Her sophomore EP, Queen of Risk, an electro-punk rivet-jams with a satirical edge, was a collaboration with producer/programmer Sean Payne (Cyanotic, Vampyre Anvil, CONFORMCO).
