Bio

Hailing from Boorloo (Perth), the six-piece formed in 2018 and have since crafted a dynamic blend of soul, jazz, and alternative colours into a sound of their own.

Following debut single Find Some Friends, the band released their first EP Kayak in 2019 to local and critical acclaim. 2020 saw the band hone-in with double Subterrain / Arctic Beauty Kiwi, also the first release on their label run by one of its members, Rockton Records.

After a session at Poons Head Studios in Fremantle in January 2021, the band stepped up again with their latest release of two singles 'Ghost' and 'I Get Scared'. Tracked together as a band live in the studio, these capture a raw and ethereal energy underlining the band's continual growth.

Headline shows and notable support slots across many Perth and southwest venues have forged an engaged following amongst WA’s thriving local music ecosystem, and landed them slots at Perth Festival, WAMFest, and Fairbridge Festival.

Keeping things tight-knit since their inception, the band values a DIY approach to recording, artwork, and collaboration.

“brilliantly woozy and graceful, with an enchanting sway.” – Pilerats
“Between splashes of colourful melodies, honeyed vocals, and the placid nature of their music, No Nomad created an atmosphere in the room of blissful tranquillity, sprinkled with bursts of artistic expression." - GROK

No Nomad is privileged to write and perform on the traditional lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. They acknowledge the custodianship and contributions of elders past, present, and emerging. Always has been, always will be, Aboriginal land.

No Nomad get into their nimble indie jazz with the care of some artisans at work. Handcrafted, full of personality and fine details.
