    Science: noun. The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. Art: noun. The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. If the definitions don't seem to help all that much you might find solace in the synthy-crunchy-insistent-electro-pop of this Sydney three-piece. Recently ascending to platinum heights on the back of their self-titled debut EP, their second album The Experiment has also garnered wide appreciation and made ears happy both here and abroad. The first tour since their return from the US, Art vs Science will take to the stage at the Tivoli, supported by the big-beats and high-flying vocals of Strange Talk. It's enough to make Galileo and Picasso friends.
