Bio

Gap Year was formed in early 2019, with members having played together in various configurations around Perth W.A. Through a mutual appreciation for mid-80s Australiana, the band tries to capture the melodicism of The Church and The Go-Betweens, whilst drawing on the production stylings of modern groups such as Real Estate and The War on Drugs.

everything about this is so sad but in the best way. i've listened 4 times in a row and can't get over how well you've summed up a mood.

Warm, jangly and endearing songwriting. Really love the balance between that vibrant guitar melodies and those vocals!
