Bio

2018 saw the fruition of The Spaghetti Stains, an all-female three piece band with a sound derived from alternative/indie and surf rock origins.

Members Pantjiti Lawrence (vocals/guitar), Emmah Hellings (vocals/bass/keys) and Rose Verey (drums/bass) collectively share the songwriting process. Their upbeat vibe blends with soulful, and, at times, hauntingly captivating harmonies.

Originally from Braiakolung, Gunai Kurnai Country (Gippsland), the three are proud of their regional roots and this influence filters its way into their work.

Affectionately referred to as the Spag Stains, these wild women have dived into the hearts of the music community. They’ve shared fun times on stage with artists such as Eliza & The Delusionals, The Grogans, Mona Bay, Velvet Bloom, Barefoot Bowls Club and Nelipot (NSW), just to name a few.

2019 has seen them play at St Kilda Festival along with other iconic Melbourne venues such as The Tote, The Espy, Yah Yah’s, The Gasometer Hotel and The Grace Darling Hotel. Their debut single 'Toast to the Coast' has racked up over 20k Spotify streams and scored airtime on Triple J and SYN radio stations, as well as their subsequent single ‘Lolly Boys’. The girls will be releasing their debut album in late 2020 with help from Triple J Unearthed’s Level Up Grant.
