Bio

Halcyon Drive are proud to announce the release of their new single Whitewash. Produced by legend Steven Schram (San Cisco, The Cat Empire, Little
Birdy) and mastered by Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys), Whitewash builds on
the band’s extensive live experience and marks another evolution in their unique indie
pop sound.

Fast becoming stalwarts of the Melbourne live music scene, Halcyon Drive have had a
massive year of acclaimed live shows. Recently playing the Speaker.TV Halloween party
at the HiFi with Northeast Party House and Client Liaison, supporting Panama (Syd) on
their national tour at a sold out Northcote Social Club, and headlining the Espy Front
Bar alongside I Know The Chief, it’s hard to find a weekend when these boys aren’t
gracing a stage somewhere in a dingy, dark corner of Melbourne town.

Two dudes, one guitar, one (and a half) drum kits, and a blend of intense live loop
experiments and catchy as balls pop hooks, it has been said that Halcyon Drive exude
a vibe something similar to a cross between Bombay Bicycle Club and Matt Corby, or
Foals and Bon Iver.

This song totall...

This song totally sneaked up on me! What opened as an understated little indie pop tune ended up hooking me in for a goosebumps-inducing journey. It's such a satisfying track, but still I keep going back for more.

Guess I'll ...

Guess I'll just review all your songs. This starts out really sweet and swells up strangely (which I really like). Then it's straight to fourth gear for some unshakable garage pop goodness. Well played.
