Bio

After a chance re-meeting in a Country session, Primary School buds Angus, Jordy and Nik maneuvered their love for blues, skating and lemonade into the happy/sad surf-pop trio Don’t Bring Stacey. Formed in May 2019, the boys dropped their first single ‘Everybody Knows’ a chunky offering with hooks a plenty only a few months later. Don’t Bring Stacey return this December with their long awaited (by their mums anyway) new single ‘Changed my Hair’. A tongue in cheek exploration of low self-esteem, a rather eventful mental breakdown and the following rise to self-empowerment. …basically a breakup song.

It happened like this:
So I was like “Hey Jordy we should start a band!?!?” And he was like ummm sure but bass? Then we asked Nik if he played bass and he was like “dooooooooooooooood I TOTALLY play bass”

Fast track about 6 days later, Nik comes over, we jam and it is AMAZINGG. Then we stopped for some lettuce cos y’know gotta eat your greens.
5 seconds later we wrote this song called Everybody Knows, yeah the one up the top there hehehe. Jordy’s dad came in and was all like BOYS THAT SLAPS SO HARD (he may or may not have actually said this). And so we were like HECK this MUST slap pretty hard, then we recorded it. The End.
…………..
OR SO WE THOUGHTTT!!!!!!
Dropped the tune and all our mates were like Welcome to SLAP city, population you. The boys are celebrating meanwhile I’m just chilling with a glass of semi-warm OJ going “How the hell do we follow up this?” (See: having a mental breakdown). Anyway one day we were jamming a new tune called ‘Changed My Hair’. Jordy’s Dad came in and was all like FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN YOU BOYS PLEASE TURN THAT S**T DOWN……so this time we knew we were onto a winner!

We hope you enjoy our tunes as much as we enjoyed making them,

DBS xxxx

Someone tell NME that we've found their new favourite band. This song is a peach.
