Bio

We are The Grogans. Our grandparents say our songs "have a good beat" and when your grandparents say that, you know it must be average.

We're three best mates from Melbourne, and formed The Grogans while jamming through high-school. We began playing friends and families parties, then moved onto our first few shows at Ding Dong lounge, then released our debut EP ‘Cacteyed’ towards the end of the year, featuring ‘Pot Head Artist’.
With the release of our second EP ‘Twangs n’ Cans’ (2017) and the development of an engaging live show, we opened a path to playing alongside bands such as -Northeast Party House, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Dear Seattle, Peach Fur, Good Doogs, Polish Club and Drunk Mums.

But in 2018, we've been getting busy...
We started this year by heading out to Ocean Grove, where between surfing and skating, we recorded our third EP – ‘Grogan Grove’ which was released in June. The EP had a new mixture of sounds that we hadn’t recorded in previous releases, adding spacey riff orientated jams like the ones in ‘Abando’ right through to the mellower tracks like ‘Intentions’.

We have also recorded and released two more songs in November - these are called Washed Out and Ride! In support of this release, we've organised our first national tour going stopping for 8 shows along the south coast, east coast regional VIC and also two festival slots including CIVIC SOUNDS!

This one didn't quite click for me like some other this band's given us in the past but still I'm convinced that they're ones to watch out for. Relaxed grooves and showing off some nice vocals on this one.

I think this might be my favourite from you guys yet. I love all the movement in this track - very up and down (just like the lyrics). The different parts bring the strong vocals, hooky chorus and those cruisey guitars together really nicely. Plus, a very golden finish. Love it!
