Bio

Out of Melbourne, alt-rock 7-piece.

Likened to DMAs, Oasis and The Smiths, new song ‘Places’ is a sun drenched soundscape packed with shimmering guitars and uplifting keys. Frontman, Ned Hawkins’, honest and iconic lyricism builds an unbreakable bond with the listener and turns the track into a sumptuous bittersweet ode to better ‘Places’.

Off the back of a huge year gigging all over Victoria at crowd spilling venues, The Brungas' 2019 gig highlights included a self-created charity gig for Leukaemia at the Yorkshire Hotel (sold out), The Workers (sold out), and ‘Hide & Stay’ launch at Revolver Upstairs (sold out).

Their release will be supported by a launch party in February. Previous singles have seen support from Spotify editorial playlists, Carlton football club, triple j Unearthed, RRR, SYN and Casey Beat, as well as a host of other community radio stations. They have also garnered online support via Beat Magazine and Farrago, as well as a slew of other respected publications.

The Brungas will continue to gig regularly and release music into 2020.

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