Neck Deep, Blink-182, Yours Truly




Formed in 2016, the Dysfunction boys, Griff, TJ, Jack & Oli love nothing more than playing live. Whether it's a gig in the Big Room at Big Music in Crows Nest where the band was formed, playing Frankie's Pizza in the heart of Sydney or supporting DZ Deathrays on their "Tour With The Lot", touring and performing is what it's all about for the lads from Sydney's Northern Beaches and the Inner West.

The band's capacity to light up the stage saw them chosen to play Moshfest Sydney in 2017 and by mid 2018 they'd won the coveted Triple M Gotcha4Life band competition resulting in their debut single "It's Over" being recorded and released on Triple M. They went on to win the inaugural Northern Composure Unplugged that same year, judged by INXS's Kirk Pengilly.

"In Circles", the band's debut EP, was released in 2019 with the title track being picked up by Triple J Unearthed and other radio stations around the country. A win at RockFest Sydney saw the band play the national final in Melbourne and by the end of 2019 their single "Reject Anthem" was streaming worldwide. In 2020 they released "The Mourning After" with the single charting at No. 1 on the Triple J Unearthed Punk & Pop Charts and No. 3 across all genres.

Dysfunction's music is fast, loud and full of energy and its themes pay homage to the tribulations of carving out a meaningful life in our ever-changing world.
