Bio

Originally hailing from Dublin, Phillip Island and Brisbane, Sketch Club formed in Melbourne via a classified ad left on an online forum for music nerds.

The band quickly settled on a song writing method that works best for the indie-rock outfit - 3 gentlemen making noise in a red velvet room until something good happens. And good would be some cinematic pop with a dark edge & a little swagger.

With songs from their 2017 EP “Primal Calls & Graceless Falls” finding their way on to radio rotation and Spotify Editorial playlists in Europe, the 3-piece continued writing, playing and chin rubbing their way towards a new body of work.

This inspired time has resulted in the band’s debut LP “Departure Lounge Transmissions", recorded with producer John Lee (Augie March, Laura Jean, Bananagun) at Phaedra Studios in Melbourne. Out now!

"Multi-layered guitar electricity turns this sticky sonic journey, slowly but surely, into an amplified and polyphonic pop rainbow! A magnificent score from the Australian band." - Turn Up the Volume

Packing some wiry menace that harkens back to the darker bands that permeated the 00s indie wave - Interpol, White Lies, etc.

Love the ooo's in the track - reminds me of Foals a little. When that guitar riff kicks in at around 37 seconds though, it takes it to another level. This song just ultimately sounds good.
