Bio

Drawing influences from Aussie punk, 60s garage and surf, Sophisticated Dingo are ripping up the indie rock scene by ripping out killer tunes that have you moshing before you realise!

These two pack a lot of noise for so few instruments. They explode on the stage with a high octane set of bangers. Each trashy song gets the blood pumping more than the previous as they pummel through super catchy melodies after melody with fuzzed out precision.

Their panache for thrashy guitar tunes is only matched by their cheeky taste for blood. Social commentary is but the tip of the iceberg as they rip through telling anyone and everyone what they think of them with comedic slant that make them all the more delicious.

New single Yuppies is a dig at all the coffee drinking, avocado smashing elites who complain about dark rye bread and you will be singing it all week!

They’ve shared the stage with some killer bands including Tired Lion, The Gooch Palms, Dear Seattle, Mesa Cosa and Raave Tapes which speaks volumes about their live show credentials. If these guys don’t get you moshing, then maybe check your pulse.

“Sophisticated Dingo are attacking garage pop with sheer brilliance, not to mention a touch of comedic allure and cheeky attitude.” -Happy Mag

“Punchy, catchy garage rock that will definitely tickle the fancy of any Skegss or Soho fan!” - Bridget Hustwaite, Triple J
