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.
They then released “Girlfriend” and “Sally” the year after. With more than 200,000 Spotify Streams, “Sally” was praised by Triple J legends, Zan Rowe & Home & hosed Host, Declan Byrne. Sparking interest, the boys were invited to support Tyne-James Organ on his ‘Watch You Go’ Tour. Pacific Avenue also embarked on their first headline tour up the east coast promoting the release of “Sally”.
“This band continues to grow into their ambitions. This latest track curls around until it’s all spring-loaded rock goodness“- Dave Ruby Howe- Triple J Unearthed
At the end of 2018, the band released “Excuse Me”, which was the first single of their debut EP. With this release, Pacific Avenue sold-out Sydney’s Factory Floor and later found themselves supporting artists such as Ocean Alley, The Wombats, Skegss, Thelma Plum, Lime Cordiale, Tash Sultana, British India, and San Cisco, to name a few.
2019 was an exciting year for Pacific Avenue; they released their debut 6- track EP ‘Strawberry Skies’. This EP tells the story of living out of home for the first time, and the vulnerability, the freedom, and the wild times that come with it. The leading track from the EP’ Something Good’, encapsulates this feeling as a whole, creating a reflective and nostalgic notion of the freedom of youth.
The EP was well-received with a sold-out 12 date national tour which included likes of the Metro Lair, Wrangler Studios and an appearance on the Yours & Owl’s main stage. Their success didn’t go unnoticed with the main support slot on The Vanns ‘Through The Walls” album tour.
2020 is set to be a big year for Pacific Avenue, with a new single on the horizon and already gracing the stage at A Sunny Afternoon alongside Missy Higgins.
