The Spindrift Saga hail from the sleepy South Coast of New South Wales and are known for their tight live shows, “catchy rhythms, bright licks” and big alt funk rock sound. The band features a talented lineup of musicians; Chris McGrath, Mick McGrath and Danny Freeman all come loaded with Music degrees and have spent their lifetimes refining their craft. The trio are known for their incredibly engaging high-energy live shows and attention to musical detail.

In the last few years the band have toured extensively and supported the likes of The Living End, Thirsty Merc, The Rubens, British India, Hockey Dad and other music industry heavyweights. In July 2017 The Spindrift Saga played their first international shows in Japan. The band’s full length album release “Badnormous” dropped in early in 2016 following the successful single Marvin. The band have since released singles “Batsh!t Bay”, “Musical Theme” and “Smile”.

The Spindrift Saga’s most recent single is “In and out of Love”. Released 17/01/2019.
