Bio

Woodlock have just spent the last year playing sold out shows all over the country, while also taking to the stage at prestigious festivals such as NYE on the Hill and Falls. All while managing to release the acclaimed single ‘The Only Ones’, which was co-written by Lindsey Jackson (Tori Kelly, Bertie Blackman)... And now Woodlock are back with another stellar single titled ‘Something Broke That Day’.
On a recent trip to perform in China, Eze was inspired by a comic book he was reading that involved a love triangle and subsequent murder. Co-written, produced and mixed again by Lindsey Jackson, the single is a massive leap away from their usual uplifting songs.
Travelling seems to have long been part of the Woodlock story. Zech, Eze and Bowen formed a strong friendship after meeting whilst travelling overseas and from there, Woodlock was born. Kiwi brothers Zech and Eze Walters on guitar and vocals, and their mate Bowen Purcell on percussion.
Now based in Melbourne, the boys have gained some great recognition and created a strong following from tirelessly busking on every corner of the Melbourne CBD. Woodlock have always focussed on developing strong, creative and energetic live performances, to take their shows to the next level.
Woodlock’s second EP ‘Labour of Love’, released in 2014 was produced by Wayne Connolly (Josh Pyke, The Vines) and made an appearance in the ARIA top 100 and iTunes charts. Woodlock released 'Sirens' in September 2015, which gained them spots on the independent charts, top 50 iTunes charts and top 10 spots on Spotify viral charts. Woodlock have clocked up around 29,000 independent EP sales to date.
So with a new single, comes a new tour and the boys are champing at the bit to get back out on the road... Lucky for us, ‘Something Broke That Day’ isn’t referring to the tour bus.

It's nice to hear this big, rhymthic indie sound again. Reminds me of the first Temper Trap record & the only Parades album. I would've loved the ending to be bammed up a notch but maybe that's just me.

Getting some strong Ben Howard vibes in this one. Beautiful songwriting as per and I feel this track really shows just how much you guys have expanded your sound beyond that generic folk title.
