Bio

Fresh indie tunes with catchy pop hooks are the signature style of emerging Brisbane artist Katanak. Combining the storytelling of The 1975, the anthemic nature of Circa Waves and the hooklines of The Wombats, Katanak is building a reputation for creating indie pop songs that get the crowd on their feet and moving to the groove.

After supporting Pete Murray on his 2019 Summer Sessions Tour, his following has continued to grow with his People’s Choice Award win at this year’s QUBE Effect 2020. With his latest single ‘Take Us Back’ garnering radio play around Australia, the UK and the US, Katanak is underway on his next project produced by Aria Award Winning Producer “Magoo” (Powderfinger, Regurgitator). With music “oozing the charm of a 90s boy band dipped in a delicious sugar-pop sound” (Music is my Muse), the young musician shows no sign of slowing down any time soon!
