Born outta the back alleys of Sydney's southern beaches, psychedelic surf-rock sextet Lost Tropics are coming at ya! Assembled with a teaspoon of drunken debauchery and two cups of brotherly love, the lads have travelled all around NSW doing what they love - playing raw, high energy rock n roll shows! The boys have recorded their debut EP with producer Chris Collins (Gang Of Youths, Middle Kids, Skeggs) and are itching to share it with the world.

With influences ranging from Hockey Dad to Tame Impala, Lost Tropics blend the surf-esque jangle of their guitars with psychedelic synth pads sweeter than syrup. The boys infuse their youthful energy into the music through thunderous drum fills, dynamic vocals that switch from smooth to screeching effortlessly, and aggressive fuzzed out guitars that’ll blow your speakers out.
