Bio

Meet The Messengers The Messengers are a 5 – 9 piece recording and touring band from Melbourne, Australia, set to hypnotize and delight. Their songs employ jangly guitars, 60’s organ and piano riffs, jaunty bass lines and sing-along harmonies. Think Exile On Main Street with a splash of Brit Pop. They perform live as if it’s their last day on earth – unsteadying hips and infusing a white-hot energy across every room they’ve shaken up. The Messengers have risen in prominence after gaining a strong following through countless live shows. Supporting the likes of Mini Mansions (featuring members of Queens of the Stone Age), Belles Will Ring, Eagle and the Worm, Little Red, The Chords (U.K), The Fearless Vampire Killer, British India and more...

After selling out their 'We Can't Get Along' single launches, the band is set to release their third single ‘Song For Courtney’ produced by industry favourite Steven Schram (San Cisco, Eagle and the Worm, The Cat Empire). The Messengers release their debut E.P April '13. The EP was recorded over 4 days at Sound Park Studios, Northcote, Victoria; it was mixed by Steven Schram and mastered by Leon Zervos at Studios 301, Sydney. WATCH: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-_vnq5MIf4 Here's some nice things people have had to say about the guys: "A purely joyous and bouncing-off-the-wall show from out of nowhere. If you want energy and want to dance (like you’ll have a choice when they start playing) go and see The Messengers!" The AU Review "A group of experienced musicians,hard not to immediately love. Explosive live quality". Faster Louder "The Messengers have a pop sound that is so inviting, nostalgic and very promising". The Orange Press "Everyone's favourite rhythm and blues rock band,they effortlessly achieve a riot on the dance floor". Tonedeaf "This quintet is incredible. In live performances all shine brightly as they pump out tunes that make it almost impossible for you to not join in and have a dance with them". Vulture Magazine "Destined to get into your earholes and take up permanent residence". Music feeds
