industry magazine best describes some of the essential elements
of the band's sound: "Singer Scott Ryper's dreamy vocals
dance throughout the track and the sound can only be described

the track home and with LUXURY hinting at a distinct European
sound, they are destined to break into new territories".

very soon to a European tour. Just like the musical tastes of
all four members LUXURY cover a wide range of musical territory.
With every song as delicious as the next they go from sublime
pop to unstoppable rock at its best. Their ability to combine
an aggressive mixture of energetic beats, distorted guitar riffs,
loops and synthies with excellent songwriting and a striking visual
style & performance will establish them over years as one
of the most exciting new acts of the music industry.

Both Paul McDonald and Craig Beck have impressive home studios
in which they are consistently writing, recording and producing
music for many local acts as well as their own new material. LUXURY
are unquestionably unique in the fact that all four individuals
are talented songwriters as well as musicians. Although all are
experienced performers on stage and on music video, singer Scott
Ryper has also recently ventured beyond the small screen and has
made his acting debut on the Australian feature film 'Garage Days',
which was written and directed by famous Alex Proyas (The Crow,
Dark City). The film is due for release late 2002 in Australia
