Argonaut are a fiery female fronted ‘post 1991 punk rock’ band from London. The band was spawned as the unruly lovechild of Lorna on vocals and Nathan on guitar. Abby plays synth, guitar and sings, Joules plays the bass and Omz bangs the drums.
Argonaut have been favourably compared to Pixies, Nirvana, Sonic Youth and Siouxsie and the Banshees. Their sound is all their own though, with a personal protest slant and an emphasis on emotion.
