Bio

Camden,NSW.

Cigarettes in one sleeve, heart on the other.

With a dynamic sound driven by potent yet jangly leads and unashamedly vulnerable lyrical hooks, The Dardi Shades harness the ballad driven croon of the 50's along with adolescent Americana themes of the 60’s and translate those all too familiar sounds, images and feelings of dimly-lit pink neon into modern relevancy through nostalgically British rock statements that are as catchy as they are inspiring.

Forming in 2016 the boys have been busy gig wise and clocking in some very noteworthy support slots and keeping the ball rolling with their live performances and new releases.

Most notably to date, after only 5 live performances The Dardi Shades were afforded the opportunity to join The Rubens on their North Queensland Tour in January 2017 and now they are about to join them again this June, 2018 where you can catch them in Victoria & NSW.

Playing In The dirt - The bands' debut EP is due out Friday 8th June 2018.

This is the best time anyone has had with a guitar since Josh Pyke went sailing in a giant one and it sank and wait that wasn't all that fun but this is!

Finally some new music from these guys! From the strong bass lines at the start to the melodic guitar riffs throughout the song, it is no surprise that these lads are getting comfortable playing with each other and building on their chemistry. This is another high energy song that gets your foot tapping from start to finish. I cannot wait for the EP and to see the dardis tour. I have seen them ...

This is another high energy song that gets your foot tapping from start to finish. I cannot wait for the EP and to see the dardis tour. I have seen them a couple times before and they do not disappoint!
