Bio

Sunhaus is Brisbane’s four piece alt rock outfit who are charmingly awkward and bear stories about frustrating young love, foolish behaviour and the life through rose coloured glasses.

In the beginning it was three friends wanting to play music for fun. From early 2015, the band became a full house when the original trio of Aidan Geraghty (Vocals/ Guitar), Adela Lau (Drums) and Dave Skitmore (Bass) had met the classically trained Madeleine Kinraid (Back Up Vocals/ Keys).

Having an eclectic taste in music they each developed their songwriting together while reveling in each other's company, drinking too much, quarreling with each other, crying over each others shoulders and drinking some more.

Putting their youthful behaviour to the side, they brought out their live show in late 2015. The band released their debut single 'Realignment' in April this year and have since supported artists including: Lita and The Bones; Asha Jefferies; The Peeks; and Chase City.

“The track aptly showcases the band's clearly formidable talents, revealing themselves to be adept lyricists and performers” (The Music)

With the band’s intent to make people feel as though they understand them, the frontman Aidan Geraghty although shy with spoken word, passionately outlines each member's story with his dynamic singing voice which is coloured in by harmonies from Madeleine Kinraid and Dave Skitmore.

Can write a chorus. Glad to have discovered you today! The Ooohs you work in toward the end are lovely too.

Some sick summer vibes going on here, great song! I love the way your vocals change throughout the song and the overall tone of the song.
