Bio

Bursting into the Brisbane music scene with thrilling energy and groovy tunes, Cheap Date are an unequalled bunch of prodigious, almost 20-year old musos, with an unyielding appetite for extraordinary originals and memorable melodies. Led by artist Lara Dee and backed by 4 incredible musicians, they are working the sounds of 90’s pop rock into the beloved indie genre. Expect nothing short of an emotional rollercoaster and lyrical euphoria throughout, and a yearning for more, at the end of their performances.

Fell so hard for this. This is a great song. It's emotionally moving, self aware and I love the way it lifts off. It's charged and great space in the atmosphere. I love that line too...'if i had a daughter I wouldn't want her talking to you'.

i love it when a good band name is backed up by a damn good song. what a debut! there's some biting but relatable lyrics delivered among a mix of dreamy space and pace.
