Three fuzzy guitars, two vibrant vocalists and one hard hitting rhythm section. These are the elements that the Brisbane band ‘Loiter’ use to their advantage with ease - As if their sound wasn’t meticulously crafted by scientists in lab-coats whose sole purpose was to find the ideal blend of modern Alternative Rock.

It’s easy to indulge in their infectious melodies, crafted by British-born vocalist Daryn and Australian-born vocalist Amber. The combination of intricate multi-vocal arrangements working alongside a Tri-Guitar attack, Punk-fuelled Drums and rocksteady Bass grooves makes for Brisbane's newest interpretation of fresh-yet-nostalgic Alternative Punk Rock.

Loiter was originally birthed from a decade long friendship and musical relationship between Mitch Chen (Lead Guitar) and Tim Ricketts (Drums), before eventually meeting up with Daryn Yeats (Bass Guitar/Lead Vocals) through an online post in a local musicians Facebook group. Daryn, recently moving to Australia from his original home in the UK, immediately gelled with the two long-term musical friends and they started cementing the foundation for what would later become Loiter.

When it was clear they needed more noise in the band they enlisted Amber Hudson (Guitar, Vocals) after seeing her online advertisement during a drunken bingo night at local Brisbane venue The Brightside. After months of jamming, writing and demoing material themselves, they eventually recorded their first three track EP “Alternative Sidekick” which was Engineered/Produced/Mixed by local musician and long-term friend Matt Cochran (of WALKEN & Pandamic). The resulting EP showcases an eclectic blend of Funk, Pop-Punk & Grunge with lead single ‘Oceans’, as well as a catchy Alternative, Math & Pop Rock mixture with the EP opener ‘Even Now’ and the dark Alternative Grunge & Emo-laden Pop-Rock fusion laced within the EP closer ‘Underwater Blues’.

After finalising the debut EP, the band decided that they needed to add even more noise and attitude to the group by recruiting Brandon Day (Guitar) to help nail additional guitar sections live and add to the creative writing process. Continuing to move forward and hungry to grow as a rock band, Loiter are planning for a big year after releasing the debut EP, with EP number two already in the works and plans for an eventual East Coast tour alongside as many support slots with local heroes as they can possibly muster up.
