Bio

syrup, go on is from the Gold Coast. The band's first studio recordings were undertaken at the beginning of 2017 and released in the form of an EP on January 1, 2018 under the title 'Joyful Hesitation'.

2018 also saw the band record their debut album, Last Light - due to be released in late June, 2019 via Valley Heat Records. With a wide range of influences from The Flaming Lips to Jon Hopkins, Last Light, delves into themes of solitude, despair and the perils of human relationships. The 10 track LP captures a glimpse of the collective psyche that was syrup, go on at a moment in time. The band finds peace through the realisation and acceptance of the inevitable departures of life. Despite desolate themes, optimism is always a layer away.

Last Light tour dates 2019:

June 22 - Sonic Sherpa, Brisbane
June 28 - The Tote, Melbourne
June 29 - The Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle
July 04 - The Bearded Lady, Brisbane
July 06 - Vinnie's Dive Bar, Gold Coast

Whenever I tell anybody that a band called syrup, go on is really good they tend not to believe me. Then they listen to the tracks and get it. Beautiful psych stuff once again here. It wanders but with a driving purposefulness.

A trickle of psychedelica that quickly transforms into a flood of blissful sunlight.
