Bio

In an emu parade, teachers essentially gather up all their students, and make them walk around the school grounds in a row, picking up litter.

While this isn't guaranteed to trigger the most romantic memories for a local audience, it ended up sticking as a band name for this new Brisbane four-piece. For them at least, it just had that right blend of slightly uncomfortable nostalgia. Aussie-sounding, but universal too.

Emu Parade's debut single, 'Wait and See', was inspired by a late-night viewing of Blade Runner 2049. The song has a dream-like, cinematic feel and a warm, yet odd sense of familiarity.

There's a palpable sense of mood that allows the track to come to life - a quality that Emu Parade have set out to fulfil across their debut EP, due later this year.

'Wait and See' is out on all digital platforms Friday, July 19th.

Really lovely, drowsy indie sounds emanating from this band. It's a quiet moment but nonetheless makes its mark felt.
