Kiama based indie-rock group Pacific Avenue are set to release their invigorating new EP “Strawberry Skies” today, Friday August 16th, alongside lead single “Something Good”. Overflowing with electrifying energy harkening back to the glory days of surf rock, the EP strikes a literal chord to the very core of these South-Coast legends.

The band are also excited to announce a national tour, kicking off in Berry on Saturday 21st September, and hitting the following venues along the way. 

From the bold sounds of “You” through to “Excuse Me”, “Someday Soon”, “Give Me a Call”, and lead single “Something Good”, the EP exudes optimism and edginess in every track.

“Something Good was inspired by a period of time when we were all living out of home in a little beach shack in Wonoona,” said the band. “The lifestyle around that time influenced the writing behind it, giving it a sorta beachy sound. It’s cool because every time we listen to it, it draws us back to that place of freedom and youth which has since been demolished.”

In 2017, on the coastal town of Kiama on Pacific Avenue, a four-piece garage rock band was born, blending authentic rock & roll with today’s modern sound. They released their debut single, "In your arms", quickly becoming a familiar track in their set, reaching #1 on Triple J Unearthed in early May, led to the band landing a slot on 2017’s Sounds of the Suburbs festival line up in Cronulla. The band stems its influences from the Surf-rock-garage sound, looking up to bands such as Hockey Dad and Skegss. Other influences include Gang Of Youths, Powderfinger, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Crowded House.

With more releases, Pacific Avenue found themselves supporting artists such as Ocean Alley, The Wombats, Crooked Colours and San Cisco, to name a few. The band finished the year off by playing at Jindabyne's Snowtunes Festival and the Lost Paradise over the new year.

2019 is looking exciting for the boys, having a debut EP on the way, and having supported Tash Sultana and playing alongside Ocean Alley and CLEWS. Keep an eye and ear out for lots of new stuff on the way.
