Formation

Me (Malachy) and our bassist (Josh) began jamming in my room with just drums and bass in late 2018. We realised we needed a vocalist and got our friend Tanika to sing for us. We stayed like this for a bit, performing at our school talent show. We then realised we wanted a guitarist so put out the ad and found Alex, with that we renamed to Fawziya and begun to write and record originals and play our music live at gigs around Perth.

Influences

Many people, to name a few Blink182, RHCP, Blur, Weezer, Bruno Mars, Sticky Fingers, Ocean Alley and Twenty One Pilots.
