Bio

Ah Trees are five friends from Perth, WA, inspired by the new-wave, alt-rock and post-punk sounds of the late 80’s, with music that will have you dancing down hallways or drifting away on clouds.

Described by Pilerats as “one of Perth’s most consistent acts”, the last three years have seen Ah Trees release a debut EP and numerous singles all gaining national radio play. They’ve supported the likes of Northeast Party House, Gypsy & The Cat and Jeremy Neale, and had the opportunity to perform at WAM Festival, Distant Murmurs, the opening of the Optus Stadium and played a top three spot in the Path to Laneway Showcase - as well as hosting sell out shows in their home state.

The band completed their first national tour at the end of 2016, taking their epic live show around Australia. They were nominated for a WAM Award in 2016 and were also part of the top 20 most played artists on Perth’s RTRFM for that year. In 2017 Ah Trees released two singles, a thought-provoking music video filmed in Vienna as well as an extensive live schedule with performances across WA, including a curated residency at The Aardvark in Fremantle and a tour of WA’s beautiful south celebrating the release of ‘Do It All Wrong’, the follow up to their self-titled EP.

October saw the fresh new single ‘How Long Must We Wait’. The fuzzy, lo-fi track was enjoyed by the likes of Triple J and community radio, receiving airplay across Australia and abroad as well as finding its way on to a number of celebrated playlists including Spotify's 'Fresh Finds'.

New single ‘Shark Bait’ - out April 26 2019
Performing at The Bird, Northbridge, May 31

It's got a really retro, post-punk sensibility. Your last song reminded me a lot of War-era U2 and this is like that plus Slowdive plus Two Door Cinema Club. Dark and dreamy and all my faves.

if you like northeast party house and foals (@bridget) then you might find yourself getting down to this darker pop blend.

Had the radio blasting through the office when this song came on just now and we're all now talking about how damn gorgeous it sounded on radio. Pumps of colour, rushes of sound and oozing amounts of familiarity. Loveeeeee this.
