The Tommyhawks have just finished recording their third EP This is Not a

Desert Island and they are preparing to take it around the country in

September.The Tommyhawks have spent much of the last few years touring

Australia in a shitty little transit van. Four girls sleeping in one bed,

surrounded by guitars, drums, saxophone and knickers. But now they have

finally struck gold! In support of recent single "Bedroom" The Tommyhawks

upgraded and completed their first tour in a Winnebago. After three years of

coveting the grey nomads in their flash motorhomes as they drove up and

down, and up and down, and up and down the Hume Highway they finally hit the

big time and followed their dreams right into a van with not one, not two,

but three beds and a toilet.This is not a Desert Island explores the idea of

trying to control ones own state of mind, and mental health... and often

failing, as well as focusing on trying to grow up and figure out who we are

and who we want to be. While second single from the EP, ¹Summertime¹ is

about the process of coming out of a dark place or depression and finding

peace within.In the three years since The Tommyhawks formed, they have

played over 20 festivals across the country, released two EP¹s, 2015¹s We¹re

All Meat and We're Gonna Get Eat and Hurling Stones and Sticks in 2016.

Track "Hollow" was nominated for the West Australian Music Awards¹ Song of

The Year 2016, and the anthemic "New Friends" will be featured in the new

Ben Elton feature film Three Summers.Renowned for their mesmerising and

cockle-warming live performance this fierce femme- fatale foursome explode

with quirky, dramatic, trippy and heartfelt songs. Be prepared to come away

with a full heart and a big crush.

"The kind of track that breaks your heart and stitches it back together
