Bio

Erin May, the new Bribie Island alternative band has stolen the hearts of many with their new sounding music that they’ve been working on for the past year or so. Being a new act, coming into a scene and marketplace where pretty much everything has been done before, they’ve somehow found a way to etch out a niche that crosses multiple genres, and is extremely hard to pigeon hole them into one.

After a few line up changes in the rhythm section they settled on the lineup , with, Kirk as lead singer and main songwriter, Lana (Kirk’s sister) who is on bass, Derek on lead guitar and AJ on drums rounding out the 4 piece group. The band prefers to enjoy their musical writing style and don’t take themselves too seriously.

Singer Kirk Jeffs, has been compared to artists like Frank Black & Robert Smith, and has a distinct sounding voice. Maybe not for the commercial masses however he has a found a cool way to tell his story, and keep a grooving vibe simultaneously. The band although hailing from Bribe Island, about 1 hour north of Brisbane, have been playing in and around town since their single release, and have recorded their debut 4 track ep at Tall Poppy studios with engineer Nathan Woodrow.. The record is mainly self produced, or you could say it hasn’t even been produced, due to its rawness, a great way to put out a first record.

There's something so darn comforting about this track. Whether it's the nostalgic tinges hinting at The Cure and co. or the charming narrative, it makes me homesick, happy and hopeful all at the same time.
