Bio

“Vines-esque springs to mind. I like that one. Nice!” Jane Gazzo – Max TV, Music presenter “Its got promise. Australia always I think has a soft spot for bands that you could go see at a pub and have a beer with afterwards. I’d have to listen to it a few more times. Good energy.” Dom Alessio – Triple J @ FTM Fresh off the release of their first single “Yeah! The People” in March of this year, Melbourne three-piece MY PIRANHA have racked up a bunch of shows around town gaining a loyal fan base. MY PIRANHA are a merge of alternative grunge and rock ‘n roll that creates a rocketing punchy sound that reflects a blending of the coolsie indie rock style of The Vines, and lo-fi garage sounds of Sparklehorse. Comprised of Jez (25) Vocals, Guitar; Ken (25) Bass; Ivz (22) Drums, the band first got together back in early 2012. Jez and Ken had previously played together in punk bands in high school and after the demise of their previous band they decided to start working on something new. These early demos would turn out to become the original demos for MY PIRANHA. After another night in St.Kilda at the recording studio, the boys went down to the Espy Gershwin room where a friend’s band was playing with a fill in drummer. The boys saw Ivz smashing away with the intense energy that would be perfect for their songs. Since then MY PIRANHA have racked up a number of shows at some of Melbourne’s best music hot spots, such as The Grace Darling, Yah Yah’s and The Evelyn. The band not willing to let up and relying on their self produced studio work and independent ethic are gearing up to release their second single “I Was Born Yesterday” on the 11th of July at Bar Open, with their debut follow up E.P due out in September. They’re playing shows all throughout 2013 so get down to a gig and catch them tearing it up then say g'day!
