Recent MTV Kickstart finalists Tracksuit are an interesting mix of influences, a dash of Britpop, a dash of Oz Punkabilly (Close your eyes and that could be a double bass.) and a dash of old school dirty-indie-garage all rocked together in the nice little Perth womb we have going here, to create something that reminds you of things you like. Even when Tracksuit reminds you of bands you don’t like, you may find yourself digging it, leading to a realisation that the arrogance of a different and unnecessarily successful band had previously ruined an entire musical style for you. There was no trace of arrogance in Tracksuit’s performance, appearance or demeanour. Loving every minute of their set, this band managed to draw the crowd’s attention with their enthusiasm, and the head nodding-toe-tappingness of their tracks - Fasterlouder


Tracksuit's music is as straight-to-the-point and unpretentious as their name - blessing them with the all too rare quality of being a band that doesn't fix what ain't broke. It starts, it rocks, it ends. Perfect.

This local three-piece has been scoring some decent shows of late, including a spot on the recent Triple J's One Night Stand Street Party lineup in Collie. Their straight-up pop rock is laced with an upbeat feel; with some hard hitting drum beats and vocals that almost have a swagger to them. The leading track Nothing Left To Lose and Memory Lane would have to be the stronger tracks on the bands debut EP and demonstrate the potential for good things for the band.

Bio

Tracksuit originally formed in the USA by Steve Hensby (guitar/vox) who was studying a professional music degree at Berklee. Since then Steve has been around the block playing with Nick Littlemore (empire of the sun) in the band Silver Scene, played mandolin on Steve Poltz new album, and bass for Phils Finest Hour (pre Dirty Secrets) to name a few! But in late 2007 it all came full circle back round to Tracksuit, with a new line up – Jay (drums) Andres (bass) in a new country – Australia!

Since conception the band have played 100+ gigs and have supported the likes of Owl Eyes, British India, Yves Klein Blue, Kav from Eskimo Joe, MTV Kickstart finalists in 2008 and they rocked JJJ's One Night Stand after party in Collie!

Tracksuit released their second EP - Where Have All The Good Times Gone? Which was launched at Mojo’s, Fremantle,WA on the 12th February to a sold out crowd, the tracks got some love on triple j and community radio stations across Australia, including recent no.1 in Amrap’s Airit Rock Charts!

Following a showcase at the Fuse Festival in Adelaide these boys have got the music industry’s ears pricked and standing to attention.......leading to three BIG shows in NSW in July 2011 courtesy of The Harbour Agency.

Tracksuit will be heading East again in late September for another string of shows before they head home to Perth and back to the studio to record some new tunes with Dave Parkin at Blackbird Studio’s.......stay tuned!
