Bio

Imperial Broads are a noisy, deranged, pop explosion led by three singer-songwriters who work together to make a delightfully raucous, urgent, and melodic sound. What started out as three girls in a garage learning to play guitar in the dead of winter, with ambitious ideas of making harmony-packed punk music, has developed into the strange but catchy combo of distortion and groove created by Pip Smith, Eve Lande and Lauren Crew.

Renowned For Sound has raved their live shows as packed "a powerful set of tunes that saw doo-wop pop and punk collide" and Underground Stage said their songs are “like an edged weapon, glinty and threatening, but are wielded with skill and a thoroughly demented grin. It slices through you in all the good ways.”

They have played a slew of local festival lineups including Bad Day Out, Freedom Festivals 2 & 3, Sad by Sad West and Sydney Psych Fest where they played alongside the likes of La Luz, Straight Arrows, The Gooch Palms, Middle Kids, Body Type, Felix Lush, Julia Why?, Kikagaku Moyo, New Candys, Glitoris amongst many more local and international acts.

I love the differential between your high register vocals and those low guitars!

Absolute winner! Love the way the surf guitar curls around this perfect little ditty.
