Bio

Requin found their name in the malfunctioning television of a local fish and chip shop. The screen was caught uncontrollably switching between Australian TV quiz ‘Deal or no Deal’ and a French news channel reporting a shark attack (un attaque de requin). In an odd way, the same tension and release between different worlds can be seen in Requin’s creation of intricate, art-focused pop music. Listen to their debut EP ‘The Noisy Miners Swoop Him’ out now.

Some of the band’s accolades include the Lord Mayor's Innovation Award as part of the QUBE Effect (2017), spending several weeks on 4ZZZ's top 20 with their debut EP "The Noisy Miners Swoop Him" (2018) and being ranked 5th Artist of the Year and 3rd Australian Artist Live Performance Of The Year by theMusic.com.au (2018).

i thought it was 'blood sweat and beers' at a quick glance and i was like hmmm, i wouldn't have picked requin to score a VB ad but i'll see. it's got space and a dark undertone and like tommy said, great interplay.

The vocal interplay reminds me of I Heart Hiroshima in their heyday, which is to say GOOD ONE NICE

Personally, the title of this track is a real winner for me. Your two voices together make this really pretty sound. This track is quite unsettling, but at the same time...quite pleasant? It definitely brews this darker beauty. I'm a fan.
