Bio

Kashmere Club was born on a stage in 2010.
The Melbourne trio hungrily moved from South-West Victoria to the big city to chase that illusive feeling of "the best live gig ever" and share it with as many people as possible.

Relentless gigging and a blind faith in the power of a live show, the band released their debut EP (Roundabout Girl) to a surprisingly large crowd @ the Hi Fi Bar in 2011. Recorded at Hot House Studios (Franz Ferdinand, Oasis) the folk and blues infused debut was well received and the EP featured across PBS, 3RRR and SYN radio in Melbourne and the film clip to the single, 'Blood Runs Dry' received play on RAGE.

Since their first release, the trio have further cemented their place in the live scene, including shows with Bonjah, Stonefield, The Murlocs and festival slots at St Kilda Festival and Kennedys Creek Music Festival.

Kashmere Club released their second EP ‘Lost & Sound’ in 2013, produced by Chris Cheney of The Living End and mixed by Paul ‘Woody’ Annison(Hunting Grounds/Children Collide).
This saw the band expand on their loyal following and receive a nomination at the innagural Cherry Awards for selling out the venue on the night of their EP launch.

Recording is now underway for a debut album and the first single 'The Company' (available here) is easily the bands boldest release yet and the truest representation of their live energy to date.

This one's got a great rock'n'roll swagger to it.

Strong song here guys - tidy riffage but the strong, smooth vocal gives it a warm, melodic edge. Well produced and snappy. Keep 'em coming.

This is actually insanely good! Kashmere Club continue to make the most solid songs i've ever heard coming from Unearthed. I would definitely drive 4 hours to see these guys play or at least buy an EP and a shirt.
