About AUSTRALIA - The Band

Toeing the lines between pub rock and new wave, the music of Sydney based 5 piece Australia (the band, not the country, not a country band) is fearlessly imaginative, undeniably danceable and quintessentially Australian. Front man Guy Fenech’s melancholic howls are matched by his subtle baritone croon and punctuate the pulsating synths and angular guitars. Formed in late 2014 by Fenech along with core band mates Oly Marlan and Nick Franklin, the 3 members spent ten days in a small beach house on the South Coast of NSW and conceived the 8 songs that would become their Debut album ‘Portraits of People, Places and Movies’ which they released independently in early 2016 and features the singles ‘Who R U?’, ‘Wake in Fright’ and ‘Love is Better’. In the spirit of their name, which conjures an echo of the 1980’s Australian Pub Rock scene, Australia’s live show is raw and immediate, cheeky and charming – oscillating between hypnotic and driving indie rock and lush, cavernous synth pop. Overwhelmingly characterized by a group whose genuine love for playing live (and each other) is infectious to no end. The 5 members (expanding to include touring rhythm section Wade Keighran and Joe Driver) have shared stages with Bad//Dreems, Methyl Ethyl, Richard In Your Mind, Collarbones and more. Praise for ‘Portraits of People, Places and Movies’: “Harking back to the halcyon days of Australia’s pub rock bands and beyond, the album showcases not only the band’s deep love and knowledge of music but an imagination and fearlessness to play around with it. – Music Feeds “An indie-pop band with imagination and talent coming out of its ears.” – The Brag “The album in its entirety is complex and production heavy, jam packed with spiraling synths and samples. In the process of making the album the facial fuzz trio decided to ignore translating their sounds to a live show, instead going creatively wild and focusing on delivering a great fucking debut.” – hhhappy AUSTRALIA is Guy Fenech, Oly Marlan and Nick Franklin http://australia.bandcamp.com
