Similar in style to Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, and Bel Canto -- female-fronted alternative bands with prominent new age influences -- Australia's Single Gun Theory were formed in the mid-'80s by Jacqui Hunt, Kath Power, and Pete Rivett-Carnac. The trio's first album, Exorcise This Wasteland, was released in Australia in 1987. Later that year, Single Gun Theory gained a deal with the Canadian label Nettwerk, which issued the LP that November. The band spent four years working on a follow-up, and in 1991 put out Millions Like Stars in My Hand, Darkly Shining. After one more album for Nettwerk, Burning Bright (But Unseen), the group signed to IRS for 1994's Flow, River of My Soul.
Single Gun Theory was an Australian band made up of Jacqui Hunt (vocals), Pete Rivett-Carnac and Kath Power (samplers/keyboards), recording on the Canadian label Nettwerk. Their music combined elements of downtempo electronic music (such as programmed beats and synthesizers) with introspective, ethereal vocals and samples of dialogue. They released three studio albums and the score for Samantha Lang's film The Monkey's Mask in 2000.
Their song "From a Million Miles" featured as one of the tracks in the pilot episode of the TV series Due South and appeared on the show's soundtrack album.
In October 2008, former lead vocalist Jacqui Hunt released her debut solo album Auraphonic, a contemporary work about human relationships in a world of floating anxieties. Two songs from the album were co-written and produced by Single Gun Theory's Pete Rivett-Carnac. The remix EP Calisthenics was released on iTunes in March 2009.
