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 dark, writhing call to arms from droves with their dual vocalists a great ingredient!
