Bio

STAPLETON are an Indie Pop 5-piece hailing from Perth, Western Australia and their next single - Colour in Your Cheeks - is the band’s most ambitious release yet.

It’s a brimming cocktail of big guitars, big synths and a full dose of
‘No, don’t do that’ energy. The track drops on May 28 and will be followed by a launch at Milk Bar Perth on June 5.

Since forming in early 2020, the band have played a string of sold out headline shows at The Bird, The Rosemount and Mojos. Their latest single, Wishful Thinking, was described by Around the Sound as having a ‘chorus like a shot of palpable adrenaline’.

Huge energy and Stapleton throw in a hook to match it. There's something distinctly West Australian about their mix of shimmering indie rock with a dusty drawl and stadium ambitions.
