Biography

Highlighted as an ‘Aussie Act to Watch’ by Rolling Stone Magazine, and featured as a ‘Next Crop Artist’ by triple J throughout Australian Music Month last November, the summery vibe that is The Salvadors are creating a bright future.

"With a slew of killer shows under the collective belt now, plus a swag of new tunes in the works, it's easy to see why The Salvadors are one of the coolest new acts in Autralia right now". Dom Alessio, Triple J.

In 2010/11 The Salvadors performed at Big Day Out, One Movement, Kangaroo Island Surfing and Laneway Festivals. The gang also supported international acts such as Two Door Cinema Club and Darwin Deez.

The Salvadors are putting the finishing touches on their debut record 'Holy Drunken Fisherman' and with management in The States, the lads and lass are all set to build upon their already established success from their work to date. 'Holy drunken fisherman' tells the light and dark of summer and the coast, from beach parties to loved ones lost overboard. A taste of The Beach Boys, The Police and Paul Simon but executed in a sound that can only be described as The Salvadors. Pina Colada's all round. Drink them down, they always go down smooth.

Lyrics

Wilson

Written By: Tom Opie - The Salvadors

Wilson, you were a good friend on the seaside till the very end.
We played air hockey, i spent all of my dollarmite money.
I see you now on the silver screen, the television, lifestyle magazines.

But this town has got me on my knees.
Fu*^ you Los Angeles.

Yeaw we saw a movie with skin heads, Abby and my friend Eddy,
I see you now on the silver screen, the television, lifestyle magazines.

But this town has got me on my knees.
Fu*^ you Los Angeles.
