Bio

Wetlands bring the heat through female fronted, emo/grunge/rock, with a 90’s inspired sound influenced by Courtney Barnett, Camp Cope and Nirvana.

After spending years as underdogs in other projects and joining forces only a year and a half ago, Wetlands are teaming up to take it to the next level. The band is comprised of siblings Brayden (drums) & Kristen (bass) Skinns, lead shredder Brendan Statham and Kaitlyn (Kaito) Hold (vocals/guitar) who all met through playing open mic nights at Queenslands venue of the year ‘Solbar’.

The drama of Covid-19 lockdowns wasn't able to slow these guys down as they used the quality ISO time to head into the studio and smash out recording their debut self-titled EP. Easing of restrictions saw them dive headfirst into a string of shows and release their first single 'Convoluted'.

With their first single out and beginning to make a name for themselves across the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, the band have been headlining their own shows and showing everyone exactly what they're made of. Wetlands are now gearing up to release their sophomore single 'Oxytocin' on the 5th of February and heading out for a mini east-coast tour to celebrate, no one will be missing out on any more good times in 2021.
