Bio

Kicking off 2019 with a series of shows with Luca Brasi, The Story So Far, Basement and Bec Stevens, Adelaide’s Madura Green are back with a new single Popsicle.

The alt-emo four piece have built a reputation within the Adelaide music scene over the past 18 months, releasing their debut EP, a string of singles and playing shows alongside Tired Lion, The Hard Aches, Slowly Slowly, Listener and more. The band have also graced the stages of annual music festivals A Day of Clarity, Stonecutters and A Day on The Cans.

Inspired by the purchase of a new guitar, vocalist Jordan Tito recounts…
“You’re buying the Popsicle!” the shop seller cried after I spotted the bright yellow Fender Strat hidden behind a stand of guitars. It was our first interstate show, my bank account only just had enough funds to buy it and I had all 3 of the boys chanting “do it” in my ear.

The name inspired our next single which is an upbeat jangly guitar driven tune with dark contrasting lyrics. Popsicle is for anyone and everyone who’s ever felt less than themselves. It’s about navigating your way through life in a time of loss, insecurity and learning how to grieve.

With their EP release planned for September, 2019 is destined to be a big year for Madura Green.

it must have been very cool to come up with these riffs. they are prominent but never feel tired or repetitive. it's an angular but thick blend and madura green are fast becoming an act that don't sound like many others.

From the moment I pressed play, I was already head over heals for this. What you've done with the guitar is so spot on. I adore this too. It's punchy, upbeat and warm for the heart.

Those jerky guitar parts are stringing me right up and leaving me prone to this band's precise emo effectiveness.
