Bio

“Suitably immersive, flirtatiously rising towards stadium-ready Arcade Fire levels of grandeur, yet remains on the twisted, passionate post-punk path, restlessly shifting gears without warning”
– Rolling Stone Australia on It Will Never Happen (EP)

“Suburban Haze occupy a space somewhere between the likes of The Pixies and Fugazi, with some Buckley and Nick Cave thrown in for good measure”
– Pilerats on It Will Never Happen (EP)

Initially formed as a side-project to Newcastle punk band Tired Minds in 2012, Suburban Haze envisaged a softer more nuanced style that would draw heavily on post-punk sounds and be weighted by singer Paul Pickles’ uniquely arresting baritone vocals.

Quickly releasing an EP entitled ‘The Lost”, the quartet backed up their commitment by setting to work on new songs and releasing their unadorned debut album, “New Coliseum” the following year. They gained airplay on Triple J Unearthed, cracked the unearthed top ten charts, and in doing so, threw off any notions that the band was merely secondary.

In 2016 Suburban Haze released the 6-track EP “It Will Never Happen” which featured guest vocals from Patrick Kindlon of Self Defense Family and Luke Monks of Gay Paris. The album marked a noticeable growth in the band and showcased their dynamic strength.

Holding to a hard-working DIY punk ethos, Suburban Haze have clocked up several east coast tours and gained support slots for bands such as: The Saddest Landscape, Creative Adult, Self Defense Family, Gatherer (NZ) and Safe Hands. They have honed their on stage performance, gaining momentum as a brilliant live act and precocious young band that has found a way to invert the notion of how music can be impactful, not by being heavier, but more dynamic.

Having just spent time recording with Jason Maas (Defeater, Title Fight, Columbus), Suburban Haze is set to release a new full length album later in the year.

I had this just playing in the background and that chorus really got my attention. Sounds like a a mellow-ey version of Nirvana. I love how considerate and sincere your voice displays itself.

Our super user Spencer described this to me as "post-everything". I think it's pretty darn fascinating.
