Bio

WHARVES, a four-piece indie rock band based in Lennox Head, NSW, are one of the most exciting bands emerging on the Australian scene.
Teaming up with producer Steven Schram (Paul Kelly, Tiny Little Houses, San Cisco), WHARVES have produced a raft of exciting dance driven indie rock tracks, receiving attention from triple j and community radio across Australia.

Early success including winning the triple j Unearthed spot to play Splendour in the Grass. Festival spots at Bigsound and Festival of the Sun followed plus numerous headline shows across Australia. The band has also played with some of the best bands in Australia including Wolfmother, Polish Club, Jack River, Kingswood, Eskimo Jo, Dear Seattle to name a few.

WHARVES highly acclaimed debut EP, ‘Sooner or Later’ was released in October 2018.

2019 saw the band heading off for their first overseas shows, supporting DZ Deathrays on a tour across Europe and the UK. They impressed all with their amazing live show and with radio support form mega stations Radio X and Manchester XS, interest in the band is high.

2020 sees the band heading back to the UK for their own headline tour backed by major UK rock promoter ‘This Feeling’. Ahead of this tour the band has released their strongest track to date ‘Nothing Left to Say’ which is electrifying the airwaves across the world.
Back in Australia the band will be putting on a huge headline tour before the end of the year and has teamed up with Australian agency POSTER CHILD who have selected WHARVES to spearhead their push into the live rock scene.

Wharves have been incrementally honing their sound and they're sounding more at ease with this positioning than ever. A great song, full of groove and so danceable! Big Franz Ferdinand energy.

Ever wondered what you'd get if you put Franz Ferdinand, Gorillaz and DZ Deathrays into a blender? Probably a life sentence, I'm not a judge so idk. But metaphorically speaking you'd get this song which is a proper ripper from a seriously underrated Aussie band.
