Unearthed artists we like
Formed by Chris Bond and Matt Dewsnap sometime in 2004 in Woolloomooloo, Sydney Australia. Sharing one crappy acoustic guitar, copious cases of Coopers red and many bleary-eyed late nights, they started writing tunes as it was easier than working out how to play other people's.
Their first song, 'Geezers and Breezers' set the tone for what was to come over the next few years of pub gigs, independently released EPs and house parties all over Sydney... "The bass is pumping, party's jumping, so full that we can't move, but we still groove, right thru the night, gonna feel like shite. // Wake up still drunk, furry mouth n' bleary eyed, every bit of movement's like a proper bit of exercise, get out of bed, fix up my head, attempt to piece together why I'm so under the weather..."

They have released three EP's independently, played all over Sydney from the Hopetoun to the Oxford Art Factory and performed at the Surry hills festival and on FBi Radio.
