“We’re strapping up the belts and heading round Aus with our best mates Ra Ra Viper this October. We’ll see ya at a show near you!”

Longtime friends David House and Henry Carrington-Jones grew up in rural WA and began jamming in a converted stable. After gaining a following from a handful of successful singles including Cellphone, Out Of Luck and Be There, they dropped a debut EP last year.

The six-track release, titled Get Better, helped them win the hearts of an even wider audience and score a spot as feature band of the week on Triple J Unearthed. Their latest single, Sweetheart, is an upbeat garage rock ballad that begs for a crowd singalong.

Despite their young career, the band is no stranger to the road and has held their own in opening slots for local favourites including King Stingray, Spacey Jane and Death By Denim, as well as international icons like The Wombats and Liam Gallagher.

They’ll be bringing their distinct brand of Aussie rock charm on tour this October.
