Bio

Aitches were Brad, Shaun, Joel and Matt and played melodic punk rock in the vein of Descendents or Bodyjar. After releasing the ‘Trouble’ single in January 2012 to kind words from old and new friends Aitches unleashed their debut album ‘Stay in Bed’ in March 2012. With 15 tracks clocking in at under 33 minutes this record is a flat-out melodic punk blast from go to whoa. We’d like to think so anyway. Aitches won the Triple J Unearthed Soundwave Festival competition for Melbourne and played a storming set to open the days festivities. Aitches were a featured artist right here on Triple J Unearthed and had the song ‘Trouble’ played on Short.Fast.Loud & Home & Hosed.

This reminds me of the good ol' days listening to Bodyjar and Pennywise. If that's still your thing or you need a nostalgia hit, highly recommend.

Great riff, with a catchy chorus melody. Has a really good surf punk feel/sound.
