Bio

Dead Roo are an Adelaide Alt-Country outfit. Forming less than a year ago, the four-piece have found themselves well received, playing Gizzfest and supporting the likes of Hideous Sun Demon, Zen Panda, Raave Tapes and many more.

Their honest approach to songwriting has developed over the course of the bands existence, primarily in Bassist Stuart Patterson’s shed, a space where he, Jess Johns, Jason Katsaras and Hamish Gibson-Smith can often be found.

there's no point making comparisons because you've hit the nail square on the head with johnny cash, twerps and angel in your influences. this has so much depth and emotion.

The name implies a level of violence that's belied by those pure harmonies. But still, there's a bit of fried rock creeping in at the edges.
