Bio

Since their debut at Yours & Owls festival in late 2018 performing alongside Hockey Dad, Peking Duk and The Jungle Giants, Sydney-via-Wollongong quintet DROVES have released 4x singles and had three tours on Australia's east coast, carving a name for themselves as one of Sydney's most exciting new acts.

DROVES is Phil (lead vox, synth), Taylor (lead vox, rhythm guitar), Tiernan (lead guitar, backing vox), Kyneisha (bass) and Jonathan (drums). With their arena-sized ambition, hook based dance-punk anthems and energetic live performances, the group have caught the attention of triple j, RAGE, NME, The Music, Spotify’s editorial team and Pilerats, who called the band their “favourite new act to come out of 2019”.

A bit of foals/two door cinema in that energy and sounding right at home! The balance in both your voices and the groove is undeniable. Nice one DROVES.

loving how both vocalists weave in and out then combine together so well just when you want it. another real solid droves release that makes you want to hit play again.
