Bio

In 2017, in the coastal town of Gerringong on Pacific Avenue, a four-piece alternate rock band was born, blending authentic rock & roll with today’s modern sound. They released their debut single, "In your Arms", quickly becoming a familiar track in their set, reaching #1 on Triple J Unearthed in early May, led to the band landing a slot on 2017’s Sounds of the Suburbs festival line up in Cronulla.

They then released "Girlfriend" and "Sally" the year after. With more than 100,000 Spotify Streams, "Sally" was praised by Triple J legends, Zan Rowe & Home & hosed Host, Declan Byrne. Sparking interest, the boys were invited to support Tyne-James Organ on his ‘Watch You Go’ Tour. Pacific Avenue also embarked on their first headline tour up the east coast promoting the release of "Sally".

The band stems its influences from a variety of classic rock bands including Led Zeppelin, Powderfinger and Oasis, whilst also looking up to the current rock and roll sound of bands such as; Catfish and the Bottlemen and Gang of Youths.

With more releases, Pacific Avenue found themselves supporting artists such as Ocean Alley, The Wombats, Skegss, Thelma Plum, Crooked Colours, The Belligerents, The Angels, British India, and San Cisco, to name a few. The band finished the year off by playing at Jindabyne's Snowtunes Festival and the Lost Paradise over the new year.

2019 is looking exciting for the boys, having just released their debut EP 'Strawberry Skies' , and having supported the likes of Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley, Lime Cordiale and CLEWS. Keep an eye and ear out for lots of new stuff on the way!

Echoing Dec here, it's a real grower, and I do love me a slow build.
