If ever there were a band who personified the exuberance, optimism and free-spirited nature of youth, it would be StormChasers. Listen up, Funk/Soul brothers and sisters; this 7-piece crew from Brisbane is here to make their way into your heart and provide many a soundtrack for your youth. Their particular brand of funk/soul/pop sets dance floors alight – horns, funky keyboard lines, electronic and big, bold beats, as well as huge, beautiful harmonies. It makes them a perfect complement to a night on the tiles. The crew - a collection of stupendously good-looking and great-sounding boys and girls, none older than 21, have been making their way into the minds and hearts of the Australian music-loving community. Supporting acts such as The Beards and The Good Ship in 2012, and touring the East-Coast of Australia and releasing new tunes in 2013, StormChasers are set to release their second EP early in 2014 on vinyl and Compact Disc.
