Bio

Steering By Stars - Lachlan James Wilson, Rory O'Connor, Adrian Reveruzzi and Thomas Smeets - came together over a shared love of early post punk in Adelaide, South Australia. The bands unique post rock take on music embraces the dark romanticism of Bauhaus paired with the geographical isolation of Snowman. Ties That Bind is the follow up single to Steering By Stars debut album 'Cables'. Released in July of last year, the debut received acclaim for its grandiose vision and complex subtlety. The band have recently wowed audiences, playing with Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders, Leader Cheetah and How To Dress Well (US). The group were also hand picked to open the 2012 Laneway Festival, playing with M83, The Horrors and Cults. In September 2012 SxS toured with ARIA nominated band sleepmakeswaves before heading back into the studio to continue work on their as yet untitled second album, due for release early next year. Recent Press “There’s a darkness about them that draws you in and captures you completely.” - fasterlouder.com.au “Steering by Stars have spent the better part of a year refining their sound into something more immediate and aggressive.” - Mess and Noise “Steering By Stars have gone a long way in ensuring their place among Adelaide’s musical elite. Drawing from the atmospheric soundscapes of SigurRos and Deerhunter, their ethereal, highly emotive and symphonic sound has made the local four piece stick out as an inimitable music collective.” - Rip It Up Magazine

As moody and tense as ever. These guys have their sound locked down.
