Together they release their blend of rock, jazz and chill indie music, which is all put together to make their sound. They have released an EP in 2018 (that has had airplay on Triple J), as well as quite a few singles/split singles that have come out this year, they have been expanding the range of their sound by working with Jordan Finlay (Teenage Dads).

The band is regulars on the vibrant local scene playing at venues such as God’s Kitchen, Supper Club and Frankston Waterfront Festivals while also expanding further into the city supporting the likes of The Hard Aches, Slowly Slowly and more, at venues such as The Wrangler, Evelyn Hotel and the Melbourne Arts Centre. The influences Bridget gives most credit to for her art is musicians such as Jeff Buckley, Camp Cope and Florence + the Machine.

I hear more Florence fronting Warpaint here. That dark, lo-fi underwater sound, big stormy drums and meandering rhythms, this is super exciting to me.

Bridget nails it on her page when she says there's a mix of Florence and Camp Cope about her music. I can hear the passion and the tension of both of those acts at play in this latest track. I don't think it's a sound that a lot of artists are exploring right now which makes me even more excited to see where Bridget is heading.

Bridget's back with some moody, wilderness rock and she's absolutely going for it.
