Bio

Sinclaire are a new alternative band from the suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Vocalist Michael Cross, drummer Lachlan McDonald, guitarists Aiden Turner and Joshua Gonzalez & keyboardist Jake Sheath founded the band in mid-2018, following years of touring, writing and recording together in various other projects.

Crafting a new sound borrowing cues from indie, pop and rock’n’roll, Sinclaire worked tirelessly on their debut release under the guidance of producer Stevie Knight, recording at Electric Sun Studios in May/June 2018. Mixed by Adrian Breakspear (ARIA Awards 2017 - Producer of the Year), Sinclaire's debut EP is set for release in early 2019.

Debut single Headspace is out now!

"‘Headspace’ is a shiny, groove-laden slice of alt-rock perfection. It recalls the indie-rock responsibilities of early 2000s prodigies The Strokes and Bloc Party through a fresh lens. Glimmering guitars swell around lead singer Michael Cross’ driving vocals. It’s a track so catchy that you almost miss the latent lyrical neurosis. The track explores the toxic effect that excessive self-criticism can have on ones creativity and mental health."- The Brag's 'Don't Bore Us'.

Punchy as. It's just got this easy likability to it - not in a cheesy or simple way. It works.

I love when great bands appear completely out of no where. It's pop, synthy, confident, and charismatic (and your band name has my name in it so it was always going to be great). Excited to see your future. It's chunky, got that golden hour bang and full of catchy moments.
