Bio

NEW SINGLE 'SOMETHING' OUT NOW

Expressive, approachable and steeped in trendy attitude, Moaning Lisa are the Canberra rockers you just wanna be friends with - Happy Mag

Moaning Lisa is composed of Charlie Versegi (singer/guitarist), Hayley Manwaring (singer/bassist) Ellen Chan (lead guitarist) and Hayden Fritzlaff (drummer). Renowned for creating an atmosphere entirely of their own, the band deftly combines garage rock, grunge fantasy with "one massive, cosy, accepting love-fest" (Rush On Rock). It is this live prowess which has landed them support slots for DZ Deathrays, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Mitski as well as slots at some of the countries most prestigious festival such as; Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Yours and Owls and Kennedy’s Creek Festival.

Moaning Lisa have received numerous accolades since the band’s inception including winning Best Live Act for NLMA’s in 2019, winning the Triple J Unearthed Groovin’ The Moo competition, and being the #2 most played artist on Triple J Unearthed in 2019. Their second EP Do You Know Enough? continued to garner praise, catching the attention of Triple J and US label, Father/Daughter Records, the latter of which went on to release the EP in North America. Moaning Lisa also featured on the cult US TV series, Dynasty.

This comes fresh off the back of THAT triumphant bigsound set that had tongues wagging around brissie and it's nice to hear it recorded. This showcases yet another side to the Moaning Lisa experience
