Bio

Adelaide’s emerging indie-pop quartet DRESS CODE return with their most polished and poignant offering in new single ‘Youth Culture’. The release comes ahead of the band’s first interstate run with Sydney’s Sinclaire, which will see the band hit stages in Sydney and Melbourne this August.

Only in their first year of inception, Adelaide’s DRESS CODE are quickly proving to be an up-and-coming force leading the charge in one of Australia’s most exciting new music destinations.

Early 2019 saw the release of their dreamy sophomore single ‘Caffeine’, which showcased a clear sonic direction for the band’s gentle yet striking brand of indie pop rock, and received support and airplay from Triple J and Triple J Unearthed. The release was followed by a music video directed by DRESS CODE’s very own Jack Bielby, and friend Thomas Schaefer, which scored television time on Rage as their sought- after Wild One slot.

On the live side, DRESS CODE have been landing support slots with the likes of interstate Triple J favourites Good Doogs (WA), Bakers Eddy (VIC), Mosquito Coast (WA), Seaside (NSW) and Spacey Jane (WA), as well as emerging local outfits Sleep Talk, Pinkish Blu, and TOWNS. Earlier this year, the band also sold out their first ever headline hometown show, with plans to grace interstate audiences with their live show later this year.

The release of newest single ‘Youth Culture’ sees the band hone their mature, honest, and charming songwriting, and marks the first taste of the band’s upcoming debut EP produced by Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson (Ali Barter, Alex Lahey and The Vanns).

It was news to me that Adelaide had been designated as the new Australian capital for clean cut indie pop, with DRESS CODE appointed as the ombudsmen of said sound. No objections here.

Just when I think I've heard my favourite part of the song, something new soars in and grabs me. This is packed full of great ideas but doesn't feel disjointed. Very clever and very assured.

Screaming "I love youth culture!" out loud on the train right now. A lot of [fellow] young people giving me a look of approval.
