Bio

Since forming in early 2012, Australian rock-trio Columbus have been playing earnest and relatable ballads to audiences worldwide. With their humble roots in high-school Jazz band, founding members Alex Moses (vocals, guitar) and Daniel Seymour (Drums) released their ground-breaking ‘Home Remedy EP’ in 2015, with lead single ‘Downsides of Being Honest’ grabbing hearts and radio play, launching the band through Triple J Unearthed and on to the stage at Soundwave Festival.

Signing to label UNFD in 2016, Columbus’ debut LP 'Spring Forever' peaked at 47 on the ARIA charts seeing them tour Australia with Birds Of Tokyo, The Ataris, You Me At Six & Trophy Eyes whilst also conquering festivals NYE On The Hill & UNIFY.

After capping off sold out Australian shows on their final 'Spring Forever' tour, their second LP 'A Hot Take On Heartbreak' was released with critical acclaim, scoring 9/10 via Depth Magazine and 10/10 via Hysteria Magazine. Hot on the heels of the release, Columbus headed out on the road with William Ryan Key of US giants Yellowcard before completing an Australia-wide headline run.

Following bassist Lauren Guerrera joining the band in 2019, Columbus released powerful single ‘Can’t Hide From What Hurts,’ the band’s first independent release since 2014, which received full rotation on Triple J.

In 2021 Columbus show no signs of slowing down with release of their new heartfelt and relatable single ‘Pain is a Mirror,’ a melodic anthem they’ll bring out on the road with mates Sly Withers and Stand Atlantic later in the year.

Columbus doing what they do best, emotive rock that's just -nice- to listen to. This one's begging for a tv sync.

Columbus is back post-2020 and sounding as tight and bright as ever. Who better to soundtrack the everyday angst we're all feeling than this band?
