Bio

In 2017, in the Australian coastal town of Gerringong, a four-piece alternative rock band was born, blending the sounds of classic rock & roll with a contemporary indie flavour.

Pacific Avenue have had a busy and exciting few years landing festival slots at; Mountain Sounds, Sounds of the Suburbs, Yours and Owls, Lost Paradise, and Snow Tunes. They have also supported the likes of established acts including; The Wombats (UK), Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley, Ruby Fields, The Vanns, San Sisco, Tyne James Organ and The Angels.

Throughout 2018 and 2019, Pacific Avenue spent time in the studio with producer Adrian Breakespear (Gang of Youths) to create their debut EP 'Strawberry Skies'. These songs were written over a period where all the boys were out of home for the first time and living together in a beach shack at Woonona. Through these shared experiences, the EP expresses the notion of 'freedom of youth' and discovering oneself at a sometimes confusing age.

Following the release of the big rock single 'My Hero' in 2020, Pacific Avenue worked hard in the studio with producer Jack Nigro (Totty, Skeggs, DMA's) to bring you the feel good track 'Easy Love'. ‘Easy Love’ drew inspiration from the feeling of falling for a lovely lady effortlessly. Whilst love can be an entirely complicated mess, its also the easiest thing we do, and running into someone, unexpectedly at that, and finding that you don’t need to try be anyone but yourself, is a very sweet thing and is something thats worth holding on to. “It’s hard getting things right, but it's easy lovin’ you”. Regardless of who you are, your sexual preference, or who you identify as, love is love, and thats what we hope to convey through the song.

Pacific Ave are masters of their craft, channeling the best of 2000s rock with a vocal that I can hear ringing out over radio waves and streaming services both.

how did you pack so much into one song?! it's full to the brim with warm guitars and hearty vocals and lyrics that you can't help but imagine being sung along by a big festival crowd.
