Bio

The Acitones are a six-piece indie rock band hailing from Margaret River that bring a lively and animated presence to their live performances creating a high-energy atmosphere at every show.

Playing numerous shows at venues through the south west of WA since 2012 The Acitones are currently located in Perth, and are continuing to work on their forthcoming EP release.

“Up-beat indie rock inspired by artists like Australia’s own Tame Impala and Grizzly Bear, with their own unique take on things filtered through.”
- Music Feeds

Having continued to gain momentum since their victory at the 2013 Busselton Battle of the Bands competition, which saw them supporting Darryl Braithwaite and gain the opportunity to professionally record their single “You’ll Go Places”, which achieved national airplay on both Unearthed and Triple J Radio stations. On the back of the success of their single release The Acitones gained the opportunity to open the Groovin the Moo Festival in Bunbury, as part of a Triple J Unearthed competition.

Drawing from a variety of musical genres The Acitones utilise guitar riffs similar to Foals and Alabama Shakes, alongside drumming arrangements influenced by bands such as King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.

Just got into a down south whirlpool on unearthed and found the Acitones again! Really like this one. The drums are great - they got a mind of their own, love it. nice work.
