Bio

The Vultures are an Australian rock band from the Gold Coast consisting of Liam Bowditch and Joe Bon MacPhail.

The duo have been collaborating since 2008, jamming and self-producing in their garage, before emerging on the music scene in 2013. In two years The Vultures released two self-titled EPs and a single ‘Walkholme City’, receiving an award for ‘Most Innovative Music Video’ from the Australian Independent Music Video Awards and a ‘Song of the Year’ nomination from the Gold Coast Music Awards. The band embarked on an Australian East Coast tour before calling a hiatus to pursue other creative projects at the start of 2016.

The Vultures rekindled their musical flame in 2019 journeying to Berlin to begin crafting their debut album. ‘Every Night’, the return single after a five-year hiatus, is accompanied by a surreal music video captured during the 2020 Melbourne lockdown and features art by Faruk Masri Vilca. ‘If You Only Knew Your Way’, the latest single, is partnered with a high-spirited momentous music video and features art by Julia Trembicki.

the medical community have unanimously agreed that the defibrillator is out and cranking 'If You Only Knew Your Way' by The Vultures at top volume is in. heart-starting, earth-rumbling rock 'n' roll.

One of those tracks that just works. Great walking bass and a chorus that does just enough to stick in your head straight away but isn't too overworked.

the Arctic Monkeys-esque swagger that struts through this track isn't the only evidence that y'all are seasoned pro's. everything about this screams "legends of the game making it sound easy".
