Bio

" It all started in January 2009 with John. He had some groovy music inside him just waiting to get out. Then Jane and Dan came along with keyboards and a bass. A little later Liz decided to bless the group with her synth and live percussion skills. The Convaire family was now complete. We hope to get you dancing. Liz and Jane love it when you bob your heads and get into the groove. John and Dan love it too, but they're boys so they don't say it as often. " Sydney indie-pop four piece Convaire of John Towey on guitars, sisters Liz and Jane Slattery on keys and Dan Talbot on bass, combine male brashness tempered by the subtleties of youthful femininity. Inspired by the music of Talking Heads, Friendly Fires, Phoenix and other pop-friendly artists, Convaire have already graced many of Sydney’s popular venues and are set to play shows in Brisbane in August. Convaire’s March release “Hey Say Hey” of some of their older tracks on German netlabel Modularfield will be followed up by the band’s official EP available in early 2011!

Like their influences but more importantly liked this song. The vocals are on the money.
