"Rocktober night for July Days"

Fresh from a UK tour and the release of its self-funded EP, western suburbs alt-rock band July Days is hoping to leave an impression at The Very West in Footscray this Sunday.
The band started as a two-piece in 2006-07 at De La Salle College, before Lawrence Henry (vocalist-guitarist) and Andy Moroney (guitarist-vocalist) were joined by schoolmates, bassist-vocalist Tim Strahan and drummer Glenn Smallman.

Influenced by the likes of Oasis, Jet and The Beatles, the band claims to sound like "the love child of Oasis and Crowded House".

Its new EP, Light Bulb Moment, was launched with a gig at Revolver on Saturday night and reflects these influences and more. Original tracks include Electric Love, White Revolver, Can You See and Rock'n'Rolla.

Moroney said the band members' different influences meant they "strived to have a lot of different sounds".

"We write about experiences we've had, crazy nights ... it's an awesome catalyst for creativity."

After winning the St Kilda Festival's audience award this year, Henry and Moroney went to the UK to ply their trade, playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival among other venues.

Moroney said: "It was a lot off our own bat. We shot a bundle of emails out and hoped for the best.

"It was pretty good for us playing in front of big crowds, a couple of hundred people."

The downside, he said, was that as a developing Melbourne band, July Days played at venues where it was not at the top of the priority list. "It can leave you pretty frustrated."

However, July Days has also played at well-known venues such as Billboards, Revolver, a sold-out show at Hi-Fi Bar and the Williamstown Festival.

"We're confident what we're doing is right - we're taking this really seriously."

July Days are Independent Rock Popsters presenting vintage inspired rock’n’roll tunes, catchy melodies and smooth harmonies. With attitude and inspiration spanning from the Beatles and Kinks to Oasis and Powderfinger.

Four boys from the western suburbs of Melbourne, and winners of the 2010 St Kilda Festival New Music Audience Award, July Days are an Indie/Rock/Pop band who “demand the crowds attention with a great brit/rock vibe and are definitely a band to keep an eye on (FasterLouder.com.au)”. Since the 2010 St Kilda Festival July Days supported fellow Melbourne Rockers SkyBombers at the Ding Dong Lounge. Took in seven cities on their tour of the UK through August, including two shows During the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Returning home, July Days where named finalists of the Laneway Festivals Very West Showcase, before launching there debut EP in October to a full house at Revolver Upstairs.

Not to be missed. July Days are an exciting, eye-catching talent. Toured nationally over the summer including performances at the Yarraville and Brunswick Festivals and opened the St Kilda Festival main stage.

Prior to the recent release of their new EP in October 2010 the boys had a busy start to the year also playing the main Stage at the 33rd Williamstown Festival, launching their new single at The Toff and taking on Melbourne's most popular stages including Ding Dong, Cherry Bar, The Espy, Revolver Upstairs, The Hi-Fi Bar and Billboard. July Days have worked hard developing their sound and “are well worth keeping an ear out for” (fasterlouder.com.au).
