Refuge Island + Parliamo + Secret Public
Speaking about their debut single, Refuge Island frontman Wullie O said: “It’s all about the sound. Refuge Island is our way to bring the swagger back into the music scene. There’s a tide of talent out there but we want you to take a ride on our wave. We want you to listen to our music and get lost in it.
It’s a no-nonsense big guitar sound with infectious melodies, that’s for everyone. Come out and see us, we’ll guarantee it’ll be a show you don’t forget.”
Influenced by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Libertines, The Stooges, False Heads, Trampoline and Slaves among others. Refuge Island have a distinct sound and style they deliver a mesmerising, intriguing and unique performance a performance not to be missed.
The debut single Above Board is out now and available to stream or download on Itunes, Apple Music and Spotify.
Hailing out of Perth with an irrepressible energy and rock’n’roll vibe are Parliamo.
Jack Dailly (vocalist) gives a short insight to the band’s sound. “We started out writing tunes on acoustic guitars, inspired by 60s music. We wrote melodies in the vein of Motown and doo-wop, and that still shines through in our tunes.
“With the full band, each person brought something to the music. We started to incorporate Ben’s driving 80s drum beats and Fraser’s Peter Hook-esque bass lines. Also, Calum’s thrashing, distorted lead guitar parts have a punk energy inspired by bands like The Clash.”
“We write about our lives and our mates’ lives, from teenage girls to tonic wine.”
