Led by singer songwriter Nicholas Lowe, joined by William Abbott (Drums), Michael Sramek (Bass) and Thomas Rusin (Guitar), Noon Shift are an emerging band from Sydney’s Western suburbs. Influenced by the likes of Foo Fighters, Gang of Youths and Chris Cornell, Noon Shift showcase a raw display of rock and roll which will slap you in the face, quickly apologise, then proceed to hug it out.

It all started in school when three little year sevens met in junior guitar ensemble. After a little bit of mingling and jamming, Nick (singer, guitarist), Will (drummer) and Michael (bassist) decided it would be fun to start the band that would later become Noon Shift. Over the years the boys spent time jamming out in the garage and even more time skating, playing with sticks and buying kebabs. From that they built strong bonds and gathered many yarns to later be spun along the way.

In the later years of high school, the boys (having finally decided on the name Noon Shift) recorded their debut EP “Fuse”. With the success of their leading single “Save Me”, which to date has gathered upwards of 160,000 streams, Noon Shift hunkered down in Nick’s bedroom studio to record the rest of the EP. After going through the relaxed motions of recording at home, Noon Shift released Fuse to the world. Since then, they joined forces with local guitarist Tom and have had their recorded music and live performances catch the attention of x-factor winners, VIA Music Group and The Harbour Agency.

The boys have their sights on expanding their catalogue and are excited to share new music throughout 2020.

A fast, kinda punchy rock track. I wrote it on the couch while waiting to go out for a night on the town. The lyrics describe the feeling of being tempted by other people while in a relationship. Overall it's about overcoming that temptation and is mostly a celebration of that, as well as what I have with my partner.

After a delay caused by our drummer injuring his hand in a freak cricketing accident, we recorded the drums at The Brain Studios in November of 2019. We then did the guitars, bass, vocals and mixing from home. After that we sent the track to be mastered back at The Brain and that's more or less how you hear it now. Hope you enjoy :)
