Bio

Dune Rats is a three-piece hailing from Brisbane, Australia.

Dune Rats debut EP ‘Sexy Beach’ received praise both nationally and internationally, capturing the minds and hearts of music bloggers around the world. This led to Dune Rats first national tour in February 2011, supporting party monsters DZ Deathrays, only months after forming. The release of second EP ‘Social Atoms’ in September 2011 saw Dune Rats first taste of airplay, with single "Pogo" gaining high rotation on Australia's national radio-station Triple J.

Throughout 2012 the momentum has continued, with constant touring Dune Rats reputation for a raucous and energetic live show gained them a spot on the Big Day Out Festival and national tours with bands such as The Drums, Best Coast, The Vines, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graphitti, and Cults.

Dune Rats singles "Fuck It" and "Red Light Green Light" followed up the boys previous airplay success and both have had high rotation on Triple J and plenty of love on YouTube (Red Light Green Light especially sparking up interest around the world). Tours with The Hive, Children Collide, FIDLAR, crowd-bending shows at SXSW, Splendour In The Grass, Spin Off Festival, Circo and the much lauded EP 'Smile' have kept the boys busy running around but they are already in and out of various studios and rehearsal rooms writing and recording for their first album, due to drop early 2014.
