Bio

Babaganouj is Charles and Ruby and Harriette. They're recording 3 EPs this year!

Drenched in Brisbane pride, power pop-rock outfit Babaganouj have grown a legion of fans since their 2011 inception. While keeping with their distinctly Australian style, The Nouj’ s sound is reminiscent of Teenage Fanclub, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Yuck, taking inspiration from CreationRecords and Flying Nun classics. In 2014, the band gained serious radio attention with their releases ‘ Too Late For Love’ and ‘ Bluff’ . This success took them on a number of headlining tours, as well as each leg of the Blurst of Times festival tour. Along with frontman Charles Sale’ s signature on-stage power lunges, the Triple J Unearthed favourites have supported the likes of The Preatures, Smudge, Veruca Salt, The Lemonheads, Northeast PartyHouse and The Creases. Continuing their powerhouse rise, 2015 saw
Babaganouj play at the inaugural MATES festival in Sydney, Brisbane’ s BIGSOUND conference, and come in as finalists for Qmusic’ s Billy Thorpe scholarship. Looking forward, the trio of writers is set to record three EPs in 2016, showcasing their infectious lyrics, intense riffs and unreal magnetism.

If you need a band to write the soundtrack for your next teenage coming-of-age film, why would you choose anyone other than Babaganouj?

Another homerun from the Brissie heavy hitters. How have you not run out of melodies yet?

If you'd been around in the 90s you so would have made the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack.
