Biography

Sydney four-piece The Upskirts are a hard band to pin down. With two EP’s under their belts and a new record around the corner, they have dabbled in psychedelic textures and reverberated surf –rock guitar riffs, frenzied post-punk idiocy and garage pop grooves. What is left is an eclectic amalgam of rock music, and a band that is excited rather than ambivalent about the music they play. Having tracked with Woody Annison (Hunting Grounds, Children Collide) and Tim Carr (Urthboy, Ernest Ellis) their next record pushes the sonic boundaries further. Their live show proves just this; is it a swoon of highs and lows, with an unmistakable dynamic energy that has turned heads and raised eyebrows. Having played countless shows across bars, rooftops, backyards and courtyards in Sydney and up and down the east coast The Upskirts have an exciting year ahead in 2014. Their live show continues to impress and has won them admirers from around the globe after packing out venues and blowing up amps in the UK at The Great Escape and their recent sold out single tour. This has seem them grace the stage with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, The Rubens, Shihad, Worlds End Press, Mausi, Deep Sea Arcade, The Cairos and Wolf & Cub. The Upskirts will continue to surprise, so do yourself a favour, buy a record, come to a show and disregard your expectations. “With flecks of Joy Division & Nirvana, they are a fine example of energetic crazy.” TimeOut Dubai’s ‘10 Bands To Watch’ “A bit post-punky, a bit Strokes-y, a whole lotta rock’n’roll fun.” Dom Alessio, Triple J “Sydney’s best kept secret” Groupie Magazine
