Wonderlick Recording Company are proud to announce the signing of Japanese Wallpaper the indie electronica project from Gab Strum. Melbourne-based Strum joins the growing ranks of Wonderlick’s roster alongside the likes of Amy Shark, Holy Holy, Montaigne and The Paper Kites.
“We have been huge admirers of Gab’s talent for quite some time, and in fact we first tried to sign him around the time he won triple j’s Unearthed High. When we heard the music he has been working on over the past couple of years, we were even more excited about the prospect of having him join our roster. Gab is one of the most original and brilliant music minds in this country, and we are thrilled to have him join the Wonderlick family. We are looking forward to working with Gab and his fantastic manager Craig Lock from Five Four Entertainment on this next chapter in the Japanese Wallpaper story,” said Wonderlick co-director Stu MacQueen.
After winning triple j Unearthed High back in 2014, Japanese Wallpaper independently released his self-titled EP and has since racked up tens of millions of streams and made fans of everyone from Lily Allento Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend). He has a variety of producing and remixing credits that include ‘Need Ur Luv (Remix)’ Charlie XCX, ‘Make Time’ by Mallrat, ‘Animal’ by Bec Sandridge and many more. He has even contributed synths to label mates Holy Holy’s latest single, ‘Faces’. No stranger to the triple j Hottest 100, Japanese Wallpaper found himself at #97 for ‘Between Friends’ featuringJesse Davidson in 2014, #69 in 2015 for ‘Forces’ featuring Airling and #44 for his feature on Allday’s ‘In Motion’ just last year.
