Bio

These Guy was born many moons ago, deep within the bowels of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Joe Saxby's consciousness. Originally a solo project inspired by the late-aughts' proliferation of bedroom recording artists, it grew into a three-piece in 2015, with the addition of Josh Coxon on guitar (aka Simi Lacroix) and Eddie L'Estrange on drums.

After cutting their teeth for a couple of years in Brisbane's live music scene, they retreated into a so-called "working hiatus" in Canada, which featured showcases at Pop Montreal 2017. The trio then made their way back to Brisbane in late 2018, and went on their first Australian tour. In 2019, they recruited Durwin Anderson on bass and continued to record and release new material.

The addition of band members, as well as just the natural passage of time, has allowed a process of continual sonic de-cluttering and renewal for These Guy. As a band, they’ve gradually refined Joe’s initial one-guy vision into a smoother and calmer these-guy vision, which remains aglow with an erratic and naïve sense of sonic impressionism.

it's calming but also suave and really lulled me into a droopy zone by the end.

Would't be surprised to hear that These Guy's booking agent had secured them a residency in purgatory's waiting room. It's dreamlike and strange, yet so plush and comforting still, the perfect soundtrack to contemplate both serenity and regret.
