Prudence is the recording project of Australian musician and multi-instrumentalist Tom Crandles, known previously for his work as one half of Au.Ra. and is also DMAS touring bassist.

With musical influences that range from Anna Domino to Swans, Mick Karn to Anita Lane, DEVO and Talk Talk, Prudences output seamlessly blurs the line between effortless and meticulous - a natural disaster of melody and noise.
