Bio

Joan & The Giants are an alternative pop band who's emotionally raw, fierce and powerful music and captivating live performance has placed them as one of the most exciting bands in the WA music scene. 

Joan & The Giants formed in late February 2019, and have thus far released six singles. Some of their career highlights include headlining Shinju Matsuri Festival to 7,500 people, being nominated for a Western Australian music award, supporting Odette on the WA leg of her 2019 ‘Lotus Eaters’ tour, and most recently performing a night time slot on the amphitheatre stage at Nannup Music Festival. The band are currently working on their EP set for release later this year.

With a unique back story, front-woman Grace and guitarist Aaron have been writing together for years, drawing inspiration from their own relationship. Coming together from different backgrounds, Aaron from a remote Indigenous community in the Kimberley and Grace from an organic farm down South, the couple are now based in Perth with band members, Riley and Liam.

They'll have heard it before but I'll say it again. Massive (giant?) Middle Kids vibes from this band. They do it well, too.

It's eerily romantic which is totally my brand. The build and drops in instrumentation are thrilling.
