Bio

Powerhouse, The Brungas, have carved their way onto the Melbourne music scene with their endearing brand of authentic indie rock, notching almost 200k streams from their self-titled debut EP.

Gearing up for their first release of 2019, ‘Move’ delivers the most honest reflection of their sound to date. Spearheaded by the powerfully delicate riffs of lead guitarist Ed Carlisle, and supported by lively frontman, Ned Hawkins, who personifies the phrase ‘wearing your heart on your sleeve’, the latest release will continue to champion music that makes you feel something.

Effortlessly steering between the worlds of rock anthems ‘Heidi’ & ‘Angus’, or the beautifully angsty ballad, ‘Forget About You, to the hard-hitting rock track, ‘Glaves’ (120k streams), today is an exciting time to be an alt-rock fan in Australia.

After all, what’s the point of making music that doesn’t make you want to ‘Move’.

Nice, cruisey, really enjoyable and sincere. It's a breathe of fresh air! I love the effects on your guitars. Very hypnotic.

if you like the look of the brungas 'sounds like' section then jump on this - a good tease of this laid back, jangly, carefree lifestyle.
