An unassuming scruffy bunch with a penchant for dogs, chooks, the beach and pizza; don’t be fooled by their chilled demeanour; once they hit that stage; these girls play hard. A fierce femme-fatale foursome with a knack for picking the shittest camper van to tour in; The Tommyhawks are a loveable rogue of a band who will intoxicate your every sense and leave you wondering whaaaat?!
Perhaps it comes from all their time on the road sharing toothbrushes and tinnies; but there’s a magic that happens when these women let loose on stage that’s earned them a reputation of being one of the best live acts in Australia.
Renowned on the west coast for their super-tight, explosive live shows; they’ve got 30 festivals under their belt; more than a dozen ventures to the east coast, 3 EPs; 2 WAM song of the year nominations, and are finally releasing their debut Album “Underground Raptor” this March.
Their alt-pop style draws from the band’s diverse background and the result is a raw, and powerful album; Underground Raptor”. Lyrically, there’s a whole lot of anxiety going on; but don’t be put off by the panic; such of is the nature of the band’s playful song-writing that the rest of the band were initially oblivious to the lyrics (observant bunch they are - hence why they’re in the album sleeve this time). Themes range from Addison’s personal brand of black mirror paranoia, social media apocalypse; and general doom. this the girls did their best to convince her that “anxious 1” “anxious 2” “anxious 3” etc were probably not the most alluring song titles.
