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, 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 this EP in late 2019 and establishing their powerful sound, Pacific Avenue have been back in the studio with Adrian Breakspear to bring to you their latest single 'My Hero'. This song was written when singer Harry met someone for a fleeting moment on holidays, who amazed him in every aspect. 'This person had all the beautiful things that made you stop and forget about this crazy world for a while, and with music that is exactly what we want to do'- Harry Obrien

Just a really solid track hey. Get a little uplift and a little sorrow and a little catchy guitar.

Soaring stuff from this band that have been pushing themselves up the ladder over the last couple of years. They're channeling a slice of the UK from their corner of the NSW south coast.
