Hailing from Whyalla in rural South Australia where the desert meets the ocean, the Scoundrels are a 5 piece band who navigate through a diverse style of rock music exploring ideas and thoughts on love, loss, life and the pursuit of well-being.

Having come together through a common love for Beer, Gin, playing David Bowie and Alex Turner songs really loud, The Scoundrels have been official since early 2018 and active live since mid 2018.

"It's not that I don't want it, I just didn't expect it..." saw the lads record with local Adelaide legend Matt Hills and released their debut EP across online platforms May 4th 2019 to glowing reviews!

"On their debut EP "It’s Not That I Don’t Want It, I Just Didn’t Expect It…" South Australia-based outfit The Scoundrels present a slice of alt-rock brilliance."


Having won the hearts of their local music scene and played their first shows around Adelaide to packed out Venue's with the likes of Bike Wreck, Teenage Joans, Kitten Kong & Ghyti, the band have shows booked for the rest of 2019 and are looking forward to hitting the road again and touring throughout 2019 to take their eclectic, energetic and endearing live show around the country! :-)
