Bio

“A soaring slice of stadium indie-rock” – Pilerats

“Loving the slightly gothic vibes, and that pulsing bass.” – Richard Kingsmill, Triple J

“A very realised and sleek new package of emotive dream indie rock.” – Claire Mooney, Triple J Unearthed

“Uneasy and unbearably hypnotic all at once, what WHARVES have crafted for ‘Man You Want Me To Be’ is certainly something else.” – Happy

Lennox Head rockers WHARVES are thrilled to unveil their brand new single ‘High School Hero’, a darker, groove-infused follow up to last year’s well-loved releases ‘Love Decide’ and ‘Man You Want Me To Be’. ‘High School Hero’ signifies the breaking of chains for the beast that is WHARVES, marking a new direction for the quartet where anything is now possible.

‘High School Hero’ was recorded at Rockinghorse Studios Coorabell (Byron/Lennox hinterland) in January 2018. It was engineered, produced and mixed by Steven Schram (Paul Kelly, San Cisco), and mastered by Steven Smart at Studios 301.

Hailing from Lennox Head, indie-rock quartet WHARVES have been making waves nationally in their short time together since forming in 2016. Last year, WHARVES took out the Triple J Unearthed spot to open Splendour In The Grass, and shortly after signed with the renowned 123 Agency. The following months saw the band join back-to-back tours, including supports alongside the likes of Wolfmother, Dear Seattle, Kingswood, Ocean Alley, The Vanns, Jack River, Bad Pony, and Polish Club. Adding to their impressive resume were slots at festivals such as Falls Festival, BIGSOUND, Festival of the Sun, Byron Guitar Fest, and Beach Sounds Festival. With a powerful and highly skilled live act, and a quickly developing discography of post-punk tunes including acclaimed singles ‘Man You Want Me To Be’ and ‘Love Decide’, the quartet are gearing up for an exciting year, kicking off with brand new single ‘High School Hero’.

Heck of a groove on this badboy, a promise of swagger that the vocal delivers on.

the bassline, those guitar melodies, the nick cave eerie vocals - it's another winner from the lennox lads.
