Bio

Taking cues from Nirvana, The Strokes, and Bob Dylan, The Ians are a modern grunge band best experienced live. With sharp hooks and thrashing guitars, The Ians play their music like only a band who’ve done the hard yards can play.

Originally from Canberra and regional New South Wales, friends Nic (guitar/vox), Matt (bass) and Sean (drums) moved south to Melbourne in early 2017 chasing a fresh musical start, and The Ians were born.

Since inception the young upstarts have had a whirlwind 12 months, releasing their debut EP ‘Elephant Fresh’ and amassing 40,000+ video views, 10,000+ Spotify streams, and receiving inspired reactions from fans online…

In support of their EP ‘Elephant Fresh’, 2017/18 also saw the band tour tirelessly across the east coast of Australia, spreading their brand of high-energy alt-grunge to fresh ears, culminating with their appearance at St Kilda Fest 2018.

Following a successful first year, the band now looks ahead to releasing new music, starting with their latest offering; single ‘Gold Teeth’ (out oct 26) – “We’re really excited to release this song, it’s probably the best thing we’ve done so far. Very keen to take it on the road and we think people will really like it” – Nic.

Raucous, gritty and made to play loud. Can get around this dish big time.

Classic Two Face situation going on here. Tightly wound and clean cut on one side. Loose and mussed up on the other. Bonus points for getting "chagrin" in there.

Hooky, guitar driven rock with hard edges. Short, sharp and to the point. Gold Teeth is catchy as hell!
