There is a tone to Aussie indie rock which is hard to explain. Much like the famous quote about jazz, you can’t explain what it is, but you know it when you hear it. If you want a good idea of what that sound is, you would hard pressed going past Sydney rock band Wolves in Fashion. In a week that we sit lamenting some poor numbers in the live music industry (see our Facebook post), we need to remind ourselves of the sheer quality of art we have in this country – so it’s our pleasure to choose a band that personifies this as our featured artist.
Forming in 2014, this rock quintet has really hit its straps in the last two years. Getting some solid traction with Triple J Unearthed, the band has been solidly gigging throughout New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, and Queensland. Last year, the boys dropped their debut EP Dance With Your Shadow which featured their official music video Moving On. Showcasing their considerable talent, these releases have been exceptionally well received and inspiring some passionately positive reviews (we’ll let you check out some of the more colourful examples at the Unearthed website).
If you are getting a little disheartened about where live music sits in Australia, we strongly recommend you reinvigorate yourself by experiencing Wolves in Fashion for yourself. Check out their Facebook page for upcoming gigs – or better yet, book them for your next event through Six8!
