Bio

Well well well, what do you have here? A band that loves to play POP! The Keepsakes wear their hearts on their sleeves and sing songs of melancholy mishaps with a sharp focus on song writing and pop sensibility. The Keepsakes have supported a multitude of Australian talent such as Ned Colette, Ernest Elise, The Paper Scissors, New Rules for Boats and The Wellingtons. With an album set for release in April 2010, much more is yet to come from this Adelaide based pop sensation. But for now, they hope you can smile along to their boppy tunes and stop thinking so much, even if it is for three simple minutes. The album Crocodile Onesie is now available for FREE at www.thekeepsakes.bandcamp.com

If there's a hole in your life since The Lucksmiths' demise, check these guys out.

Such a lovely chorus. Uniquely Australian feel during the verses and then a luscious chorus to boot.
