Describe Your Sound

Guitars and drums rooted in hardcore with modern post-hardcore influences. We are creating a new sound with our vocals, where we go from rather brutal vocals to a smooth melodic sound. Defying the typical conventions of the genre Adora Heights provides a new perspective on the post-hardcore sound with intricate and catchy synth hooks.

Formation

We all formed based around Nic, I did guest vocals for the band El Capitan and enjoyed my vocals so he asked me to be in his new band. Peach was found from Jordan just being mutual friends with him, Nic went to TAFE with Jordan, Nic and Callum used to be in a punk band (Waynewright) and Hayden was found from a internet site advertising for band members.
