Band of Frequencies, Byron Brewery (Surf Festival launch), tonight

Progressive surf-roots rockers Band of Frequencies have played all over the world with the likes of Donovan Frankenreiter, John Butler, Angus Stone and Ash Grunwald.

True believers in sounds beyond boundaries, Band of Frequencies draw their influences from a vast spectrum of roots, rock, electronic and psychedelic styles. Their signature blend comes from years of live experimentation, constantly pushing their influences into the creative fires to see what melts, what explodes and what merges.

They have now successfully forged a bond of sonic elements that represents their coastal roots and strikes a chord in the hearts of passionate music lovers around the globe. It’s this quality that has led to invitations to grace the stages of diverse festivals, at home and abroad, and to record soundtracks to several internationally released surf films.

They play at the Byron Brewery on Friday night for the Byron Surf Festival Opening Night!
