Bio

Since Papaya Tree's conception almost two years ago, the band has left no venue untouched on their journey. Relentlessly playing gigs, writing songs and recording, the six-piece outfit are unveiling their third single 'youth.'

Their previous single, 'Radar,' garnered them a sold-out show at the iconic Lansdowne Hotel, alongside spot rotation on Triple J and FBi radio, as well as love from local text makers. By refining they're infectious live show through a number of notable supports, 'Youth' continues the stepping stones that will take Papaya Tree across Australia's east coast in November and December.

Young, fresh and eager to please (if you ’d let them). Papaya Tree ’s namesake fruit isn't the only thing sweet about this band. They have had the opportunity to create an eclectic mix of styles, melding elements of rock, funk, and jazz to create their sound. ‘Youth’ is a hard-hitting track that addresses the age-old wives tale; the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Seen you live a few times and this sums up the good vibes you bring to the stage.
