Bio

The Lulu Raes are five mates and a cocktail in some parts of Queensland. Bringing a lifetime love of pop smothered in dance & punk, the Raes produce their own hook-laden pop tunes. With influences such as The Strokes, The Beatles & Oasis driving their love for music, they are sure to put on a show that makes your Mum say “Aren’t they nice boys”.

The boys new single, Not For The Weekend’ is a glorious sun-soaked anthem, equal parts nostalgic and euphoric, and at times mirroring elements from luminaires Phoenix, Matt and Kim and Grouplove. Featuring hook-laden keyboard riffs, bouncing percussion and the captivating vocals of frontman Eddie Burton, the track sees The Lulu Raes at the peak of their songwriting prowess.


2020 is looking to be a big year for The Lulu Raes. ‘Not for the weekend’ will be added the band’s repertoire of music which has previously gained them support from Triple J, numerous community radio stations and has seen the band share the stage with the likes of Dune Rats, DMA’s The Vines Jamie XX and The Jungle Giants. The Raes have also landed on lineups such as Groovin' The Moo, Blurst Of Times, Secret Garden, Lost Paradise and Festival Of The Sun.

"The pop/rock outfit really hit the main vain, oozing into fun-filled dancey rhythms, carried by addictive lyrical melodies and harmonies that trail seamlessly through each arrangement” - Happy

“Every so often there’s a band that comes along that really stands out. ...catchy melodies and soulful vocals that, quite literally, won’t leave your head for days” - Lost At E Minor


“The entire room fed off The Lulu Raes' energy, so much so that the floor was bouncing and at risk of caving in from the way too enthusiastic dancing. The band performed their form of sun-tinted indie pop wonderfully, encapsulating the pure essence of happiness” – The Music
