Bio

“Last year, we declared Approachable Members of Your Local Community as our best new act.” - AAA BACKSTAGE

"...another track that you'll fall head over heels with." - PILERATS

Taking time out of their neighbourhood watch and bake sales, Melbourne’s Approachable Members of Your Local Community release the shimmery new single ‘Only Friend (feat. Tamara Dream)’.

Produced by Japanese Wallpaper and Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy), the hummable track is a duet with fellow Melbourne musician Tamara Dream. A euphoric tonic of funk, pop and harmonies culminating in swirling synths for the biggest earworm of the year.

Explaining how the song was written, Tamara says "One night while I was on a long train ride, Josh sent me a demo the band had been working on, and by the end of the night, and lots of solo dancing in the train aisle, Only Friend had been born."

AMOYLC have been keeping their community safe since their inaugural meeting at the end of 2017. Their debut release ‘Millennium Queen’ was a breakout hit, charting at #13 on Spotify Australia’s Viral 50 and saw them support Kira Puru across the east coast. The follow up ‘Semiotic Vision’ was a buzz on the internet, hijacking Reddit’s /listentothis resulting in the #1 thread and reaching #15 on the Spotify AUS’ Viral 50 helping them sell out their first headline show and took them on tour with Lime Cordiale.

The band have up finished up their first headline tour in support of their recently EP ‘If There's Anything You Need, Please Don’t Hesitate to Contact Us’, with shows selling out within two weeks.

AMOYLC will bring their community safety strategies to festivals around the country including NYE on the Hill.

Stay safe, stay approachable.

The sort of track you turn the radio up for. cute, catchy and nicely put together.
Lovers of San Cisco should def have a listen.

Those synths and whistles are like sunshine breaking through the clouds, just beaming with warmth! Any fan of Bombay Bicycle Club or Two Door Cinema Club would totally adore this.
