It’s been an exciting few weeks!
End of July we went on tour with American band The Head and the Heart. We played with them in Sydney and Melbourne- had an awesome time! For both shows, we played to a packed room. It was really wonderful that people who have never heard us before listened to our entire set. Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for the support! Looking forward to coming back and playing more shows down there!
The very talented Kris Moyes (Grizzly Bear, Beck, Sia, Kirin J Callinan) has produced an awesome video for our single Germland (Of Julien Charbonneau). Check it out!

Hey there, Today we release our first single ‘Germland (of Julien Charbonneau)’ from our forthcoming record out later this year. We recorded the song at airlock studios with Paul Dempsey (Producer) and Yanto Browning (Engineer)
A little about this song: ‘Germland’ is the oldest song on the album and in many ways served as the catalyst for making the record. A couple years back now we were on a break traveling different parts overseas. Valdis had recorded a very raw demo whilst staying in a quiet town in Germany. He sent the demo to us all via the magic of the internet and as soon as we were all back in OZ we began working on it as a band. It became one of those songs over the years that for some reason we felt we had to rearrange it a million times until realising the first arrangement was probably the best. It happens.
Fun fact: the title of the song comes from a friend of ours Julien. We met Julien many years ago whilst he was over here visiting from Montreal. He is a total sweetheart,has an infectious smile and a ‘free and easy’ attitude that is just great to be around. He also did the artwork for our EP ‘Burn Bright’. When Valdis was in Germany, they would talk and Julien would always ask ‘how is Germland going? ’ and shazam you have a song title.
Anyway, we are very proud of how it all turned out.
I hope y’all like it.
Lots of love Jackson and MA.
It has been a long time coming for the release of our debut EP Burn Bright and to celebrate, we had a secret launch party last Friday night upstairs at Ric’s bar. We wanted to hold the event for family, friends and everyone who was involved with the production of the EP. The 25th of May was also our drummer Damian Wood’s birthday – so we had even more reason to celebrate.
Despite the fact that it was a private show I think a few photographers snuck in to get some shots of us playing and have posted them online: The AU Review.
Our wonderful and very talented friends from Contortionist Studios filmed and recorded the show - hopefully we can show you some footage from the show soon!
‘Burn Bright’ is available at iTunes, Dew Process store, JB HIFI, Sanity and your local independent music store!
Our tour is coming up in June and we have just announced the talented bands who will be joining us for the shows!
