Bio

Experimenting in the early stages, Melbourne band Sketch Club quickly settled on a song writing method that works best for the indie rock outfit - 3 gentlemen playing music in a room together until something good happens.

Combining brooding reverberated guitars with melodies that play with the part of your brain that likes to hang on a hook, these threads are tightly woven together with a rhythmical groove designed to make you move.

Moving away from it's rockier predecessors, the band's forthcoming EP "Primal Calls & Graceless Falls" is a deliberate move towards a more complex and layered soundscape. To achieve this, the lads teamed up with super producer John Lee (Ocean Party, Stonefield, Lost Animal) at Phaedra Studios in Coburg, Melbourne.

The bands' inspired time in the studio delivers a cinematic record that oozes pop with a distinctly dark edge. Coming soon!

"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

"This act is creating a buzz on the Melbourne indie scene. Gutsy & inspired, this is heartfelt crowd pleasing stuff. Watch this space." - The Sun Herald

Glad to enjoy a new track from you guys on a Friday afternoon. Still pulsing through with large-scale sounding tracks.

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.

This is a pretty great track, everything fits together really well and I love the added bit of reverb on the vocals to make them stand out a bit more. A real boppy guitar riff here, loving it.
