Bio

Husker Du meets Fleetwood Mac...Every one of the songs is like Iggy Pop- lean, muscular, charismatic and timeless." We're from Melbourne. For over 10 years we've been playing in bands. I guess that makes us old bastards. We play because we love it. About 3 years ago we started a band, we started the band to play the kind of songs we'd listen to and think "that sounds like it would be really great fun to play live!", we called the band The Union Pacific. Over the last few years we've played tons of shows, released a demo, then a 7" and now a full length album which took us countless hours in the studio to craft into what you hear today. We're broke after paying for studios so help us out buy buying the record at www.theunionpacific.bandcamp.com.

Usually I don't vibe on vocals pushed quite as far back in the mix as these are but this is shoegazey and well executed. Nothing wrong with some fat "ooohs" in your song either!

Cool interesting vibes on this track, 80's UK feel with an Aussie twist
