Named after the Sleater-Kinney song of the same name, they first began making music together in October of 2016, gathering at the drummer’s house on Mt. Glorious just outside of Brisbane. Since playing their first gig in June 2017, the four-piece of Gerard, Demetry, Emma and James have released the singles ‘Xmal Inveigle’, ‘Being Born’ and ‘9617 GRAHAMCHAPMAN’, all the while writing and recording more songs for an upcoming longer release.

Growing up in Margaret River, Western Australia, Rowena Wise developed her musical chops playing in her family’s folk band before moving to Melbourne in 2012.

Finding her way in the Melbourne music community while playing a guitar she designed with her father, Wise released her first, self-titled album in 2016. Since shortening her name to simply ‘Ro’ in 2017, her music has evolved to incorporate more electric guitar and electronic sounds, which you will hear in this set.
