Bio

Anthemic anti-pop has a new caretaker, in the form of Sydney quartet Sinclaire.

The new project of Michael Cross (vocals), Lachlan McDonald (drums), Aiden Turner (guitar), and Jake Sheath (keyboard / synth) may seem far from the the metal and punk scene in which they initially made their start, however the result is an exceptionally polished and refined pop discography sure to shake the Australian music scene to its core.

“With a live band element at our centre, we wanted to write music inspired by pop and electronic, with
emotionally driven lyrics and real instruments used tastefully,” Cross explains. Last year served up a delightful debut from the four-piece, with their first EP ‘Now I’m Ready To Start’ bridging the gap between their heavier origins and their newfound search for glistening, emotive pop.

With its release following a stint on Aussie heavyweights Trophy Eyes’ national tour, Sinclaire garnered a loyal local following, leading to a sold out headline launch show in support of the release.

After taking some time off to continue their path to reinvention, Sinclaire have returned with the first taste of their delightfully delectable dream pop direction in ‘I Needed You’, out now.

those low key emotional pop vocals play off really well against that eruption of keys and guitars. but when you let rip in that last bit, it's the catharsis the song deserved.

Sinclaire are back and sounding better than ever. Strong direction, big voice, explosive chorus. Loving those heavier shades underneath too. It's dance pop that makes you feel big things.

You're so fresh faced but this sounds like you're seasoned pros who've been touring stadiums for YEARS!
