Drawing from synth new wave bands and modern post-rock bands, THE AVENUE create a sonic palette that is both lush and powerful. Reminiscent of The Cure with dream pop influences like CHVRCHES, the band has quickly gained a reputation for pop songs that have serious weight behind them.

The Avenue’s reputation as a band to watch has earned them praise from industry and fans alike, as their sounds have made their way up and down the Australian east coast successfully, both headlining and backing up some incredible talent including The Getaway Plan, British India, Paper Lions (CA), All We Are (UK), CREO and Columbus.

"Blurring the line between contemporary post-rock and synth-laden '80s new wave, The Avenue are without a doubt a band to keep on your radar." • Beat Magazine

"…we’re expecting [The Avenue] to really take off, thanks to [their] poppy vibe and perfect marriage of synthetic and organic sounds." • The AU Review

Finessing their live shows into tight packages of frenetic energy over the last year, The Avenue have arrived at 2019 with more vigour, hungry at the opportunity to bring their new music to life. The BODIES EP marks a new chapter for the band, and an exciting step forward for one of Melbourne’s finest emerging names.
