Bio

The Rucksaks are five rough individuals making music in a scummy garage on the outskirts of Sydney's South. The band consists of two brothers (lead guitar and bass), kind of like the Gallagher brothers from Oasis, but without Liam’s looks or Noel’s songwriting ability. A chocolate milk loving drummer with poor timing, an unpunctual frizzy haired guitarist/singer and a temperamental, typical front man who also plays guitar. The Rucksaks are best described as “indie-rock” emulating a blend of old school rock and new school indie vibes. Their song vibes are typically fun and uplifting, commenting on typical social situations and life in general - the good, the bad and the ugly...
