Bio

Since their formative days rehearsing on lunch breaks after first playing music together in their school jazz band, Sydney four-piece, Highline, are carving out a bright future for themselves armed with their warm, genre-blending indie rock.

With honest lyrics and a bold, charismatic sound, Highline has developed a cult-like following, playing sold out shows to fans and friends all over Sydney including The Lansdowne before Covid struck in Februrary 2020.

Having spent 2020 writing and recording new music at The Grove Studios, Highline look to continue their momentum, showcasing their unique blend of dreamy melodies and hard-hitting, 'anthem' style rock across the Australian live music scene.

A tightly packed good time with Highline! Sounds like some classic Kooks-style sun baked indie pop.
