Bio

Formed in Sydney 2016, indie-pop/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 around. Packaged with a dynamic and engaging live show, the band aims to create the “house party” atmosphere that their fans have grown to love.

Following on the successes of their early singles “Waiting Around” and “Keep It Down”, the boys partnered with respected producer Stefan Du Randt (Polish Club, Vallis Alps, WAFIA, Diplo) to craft a new sound with debut EP “Then She” which tracks their evolution as musicians and songwriters from summer-infused, pop melodies to soaring, gritty, livewire ballads. Singles “I'll Try” and “Heterochromia” have led to a packed houses at Frankie's and a slot at Surry Hill's Festival.

Having supported local legends The Lulu Raes, Letters to Lions, Johnny Hunter, DOKO and The Deep Blue, The Hideaways have a huge 2019 ahead of them as they prepare to launch their debut EP and follow it up with an extensive East Coast tour.

Yep, solid, pacy, hooky and worthy of a bop. Ticks the right boxes!
