Bio

Plovers spent 2019 getting angry. They were angry at their jobs, and they were angry with themselves, but most of all they were angry at the people who seemed content to ignore the world changing around them instead of engaging honestly with different points of view. People they couldn't seem to escape. People that were elected to do better.

So they got literal about it. Their new EP You Can Do Better is 5 tracks of frustrated, noisy post-hardcore powered by the uncomfortable realisation that all change, no matter how confronting, starts from within.

Born and raised in Melbourne in late 2017 under the influence of bands like Future of the Left, Cloud Nothings, and the Jesus Lizard, Plovers is Jared Chappell, Margy Noble, and Dan New. After 2018 single Not Australian was added to rotation on Double J, Triple J Unearthed Radio, and a variety of community stations, they spent 2019 writing and recording new songs in between sharpening their explosive live performances alongside acts like Gang of Four (UK), Shihad (NZ), Screaming Females (USA), Pagan, Bare Bones, and Private Function.
