Bio

Formed in Sydney 2016, indie-rock powerhouse The Hideaways have gone from strength to
strength in the short time they've been together. The four lads fuse influences from INXS, Gang of Youths, Catfish and the Bottlemen and The 1975 into a high-energy blend of tight rhythms, punchy riffs and some of the catchiest vocal melodies on the continent. Combined with a dynamic and engaging live show, the band succeeds in creating the “house party in a bar” atmosphere that their fans have grown to love.

Following on the successes of their early singles “Waiting Around” and “Keep It Down” (the latter
reaching as high as #7 on Triple J Unearthed and receiving play on FBI, 2SER and Triple H radio), the
boys partnered with respected producer Stefan Du Randt (Polish Club, Vallis Alps, WAFIA, Diplo) to
craft the sound of their 2018 with debut EP “Then She” which tracks their evolution as musicians
and songwriters from summer-infused, pop melodies to soaring, gritty, livewire ballads that
wouldn't sound out of place alongside their musical heroes on any festival bill in the country.

Having supported local legends The Lulu Raes, Letters to Lions, Johnny Hunter, DOKO and The Deep Blue, The Hideaways have a big year ahead of them as they prepare to launch their debut EP "Then She", with single "I'll Try" leading the way. Keep an eye on them. They're the next big thing in Sydney rock.

It's rocky and it makes you move. Everything you want to get you head bangin on the train/plane/lane/rough terrain. It's a goodin.

Saw these guys live and their songs sounded brilliant. Was hoping their recorded stuff would be the same. It is.
