Biography

Royston Vasie are fucking amazing. There really is no other way to describe the way they distil their influences to invoke, incite and ignite a crowd. Their songs are teenagers, old enough to be familiar without being stale.

'You Want It Now' and 'All The Little People' always get crowds dancing with abandon, as do their blend of do’s and oh’s brought their pop rock strengths to the fore. Known for their strong bass-led rock style, the balance is remarkable with none of the guitar lines superfluous, none of the songs filler and none of the ridiculous amount of amps unwarranted. The noodling psych jams are tight, and the dual vocalists veer between a crooning Tim Rogers and a manic Craig Nicholls. The band build, stretch and release chord progressions with ease, sucking you into a popclysmic daze of head bobbing, shoulder dancing and swaying.

The bands reputation as a formidable life act have earned them impressive supports with The Afghan Whigs, Manchester Orchestra, Ben Kweller, The Vasco Era, Wolf & Cub, The Cruel Sea, Kimbra as well as selling out their own shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Royston Vasie recently released their highly anticipated debut album Tanah Merah in Australia to critical acclaim. An extensive national tour also supported the release.
