Syrup is the alt-pop project of childhood friends Harry Pratt and Henry Anderson. Originally from Kingaroy, Queensland, the pair bonded through a common love of skateboarding and music. Following some time apart, Anderson and Pratt reconnected, with their friendship and musical talents leading to the creation of ‘Syrup.’ Taking influence from The Cure, David Bowie, Metronomy, and Ariel Pink, Syrup’s sound combines infectious pop conventions with electric synths. Henry's mature, affecting baritone vocal and melodic guitar work in harmony with Harry’s synth-pop smarts create a treat for the ears and soul.
2019 saw the band release their first single ‘Something to Wear’ and later their debut EP, The Sponge, which featured production from Slum Sociable’s Edward Quinn. The Sponge received support from The Music, 4ZZZ, ToneDeaf and Triple J Unearthed as well as playlisting across Apple Music and Spotify. With these buzzing releases under their belt, the duo played two sold-out headline shows as well as support slots for the likes of Slum Sociable, Miami Horror and Jaguar Jonze.
Sunbather are an indie/dream pop duo from Meanjin/Brisbane. Sally Latter (vocals, guitars) and Michael Todman (guitars) met as housemates and formed Sunbather after sharing ideas in the basement studio of their share house. Experiments with guitar layers and vocal harmonies led to the creation of their debut EP, Brown Bread, released in 2020 and produced by Aidan Hogg at Plutonium Studios. Joined live by Stu McKenzie (Good Boy, Future Haunts) on drums and Charlie Grainger (Moon Saloon) on bass, Sunbather are set to release a sophomore EP in 2021.
