Pendulum Overview


Pendulum are an Australian electronic rock band and production group. Founded in 2002 in Perth by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and Paul Harding. Harding is a veteran DJ while Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen were part of an acclaimed rock band known as Xygen, but after hearing Konflict's "Messiah" at a rave they were inspired into the drum and bass genre, in 2003 they relocated to the United Kingdom. While "Hold Your Colour" held true to this intent, they have since experimented with mixing rock influences back in, with the rock-heavy second album "In Silico", and the third album, "Immersion", being slightly less so. Their newer efforts also incorporate styles from other genres, such as dubstep, drumstep, heavy metal and electro house. Pendulum are now better known for their energetic live shows, with live band setup and advanced visual displays and incorporating their rock background with drum and bass.
