After premiering to a packed Odeon Theatre at Dark MOFO 2019, electronic art-pop artist Costume (aka Adam Ouston) is coming to Launceston to play at the Earl Arts Centre in February.

Costume's rich, genre-bending debut album 'Pan' was recorded in Icaland at the fabled Greenhouse Studios (Bjork, The xx, Anohni, Kanye West), and the stunning first video 'Horns' was shot around the island by Canadian filmmaker Blair Alexander (Damien Rice, Talos).

The following two videos 'Running Boy' and 'Bang Bang' were shot by veteran cinematographer Sandi Sissel (Michael Jackson's 'Black or White', The People Under the Stairs).

Since the release of 'Pan' in May 2019, and the much-lauded premiere Dark MOFO Performance, Costume's blend of electronic art-pop, theatrics and design has set audiences alight and garnered rave reviews:

"A haunting...mix of Darryl Hannah in Blade Runner, Klaus Nomi and Marilyn Manson." - The Monthly

Joining Costume is the insanely gifted Parker, Tash Parker.
