Bio

Melbourne four-piece Supermodels play roots-inspired post-punk that draws on folk rock, 60s pop, blues punk and new wave. Oscar Sargeant and Callum Elvins' lyrical songwriting is backed by Callum's Telecaster twang and the hulking rhythm section of Rehn Smith (drums) and Fraser Elvins (bass), to create driving and melodic rock and roll that pays clear homage to its influences while forging a path of its own.

Debut single "Better Than This" tears down Highway 61 at a rate of knots, tipping its hat to classic American tunesmiths like Springsteen and Dylan, as well as the atmosphere of 80s new wave and post-punk. Climb aboard before it's too late.

there's an undeniable classic australiana spirit to this one from supermodels and it's getting me all nostalgic.
