Bio

The Steele Syndicate is all about the groove. Steele McMahon’s Brisbane-based octet is raucous, punchy and fun, with a genre-bending sound that reimagines elements of old school funk, reggae, ska and indie rock. The band packs a roaring, four-piece horn section and a rhythm section to match, creating music from soulful, contemplative ballads to dance-inducing funk frenzies. It’s a besuited, instrument-hopping unit! Since the release of a debut EP in 2016 and two singles earlier this year, the band has brought its dynamic live show to the Newstead Roots Festival, Gum Ball Music Festival and headlined the Teneriffe Festival. With a second EP on the way and its first east-coast tour under the belt, The Steele Syndicate is on the road in 2018 and unleashing its evolved, groovier-than-ever tunes onto audiences all around.

Prepare yourself for a 7-course meal and a trip around the world. Constantly making you dance and sing, this track keeps you guessing whilst it leads you on a journey through time and space.

This song is so much fun to listen to! Also caught a gig a few months back, was so energetic and just great vibes- would definitely recommend.
