Bio

Four friends from all corners of Brisbane who take elements of psychedelia, prog-rock, grunge, add their own dreamy touch and combine this colourful concoction into some kind of euphoric, cosmic, story-telling monster. Birthed in Brisbane in 2011 they've been gracing stages, festivals and dive bars all across Queensland, sharing the stage with the likes of Methyl Ethyl, WAAX, Ocean Alley and The Drones.

Morgan Brown is the brains and brilliance behind a lot of the concepts and music but the band write and piece all the journeys together. The band merges Morgan's curious, Gilmour-like guitar and Chrissa's glowing keys, as Brayden's energetic bass-bashing and Lewi's precise drumming concrete the band.

With the recent addition of Andy Thompson (The Medics, Surfin Bird) on guitar and Ellen Hockings on backing vocals/percussion, the refreshed 6-piece have begun working on an ambitious debut album with a new single “Hustlers” coming soon as a taste of what's to come. Freakishly reminiscent of early Pink Floyd and with the song writing genius of ELO, their songs come from an undoubtably interesting place.
