Bio

In 2019, The Tipsy Scholars returned from 6 months of touring across Australia, The UK & Ireland. Jet lagged yet inspired, the band decided to hunker down and focus on their next goal; taking their experiences from the road into the recording studio. Characteristically sentimental, their forthcoming single ‘Aftersesh’, marks the next sonic step for a band that have absorbed 6 years of journeying across regional towns and big cities. Cultivating friendships and experiences, poignant moments are reflected through a growing catalog of songs which will be disbursed throughout 2020 and 2021.

Since the band’s inception, there has been an organic camaraderie between the four members of The Tipsy Scholars. After releasing their debut EP ‘Nowhere To Be’ in 2018, the band continued to develop their writing style and explore new creative directions. Recorded in a single take at legendary Sydney studio Rancom St Studios, ‘Aftersesh’ is the latest installment in the band’s musical journey. Engineered by ARIA award winner Ted Howard, The Tipsy Scholars have successfully captured the passion and vibrance of their trademark live performances, resulting in a dynamic and personable record.

True to theme, this one is a rambling and rousing one. Arms link, glasses clink, you know the type.
