Since their inception The Desert Sea has embarked on multiple tours of Australia’s east coast, developing a loyal fan base and a reputation for high-energy live performances. Their unique blend of raw yet soulful vocal melodies, earthy riffs and chest pounding drums have shaken the walls of iconic venues in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Byron Bay and everything in between. Their passion for music and hard work have seen The Desert Sea share the stage with some of Australia’s finest acts including Sticky Fingers, Cog, Ash Grunwald, The Fumes, Jebediah as well as earning themselves a slot at Mojo burning festival 18’ alongside the likes of Wolfmother and Jeff Martin.

Having locked themselves away in the hills of Byron Bay to record their third EP with Cog drummer/producer Lucius Borich, The band has produced what they believe to be their best work yet. With its first two singles ‘I Already Know’ and How To Bleed’ receiving rave reviews and scoring airtime on triple j, the stage has been set for the upcoming release of ‘Awake Me’.

Mad to hear this band kick up some dust with this QOTSA-sized riffs.
