GD FRNDS PRESENT: A FULL MUSICAL MOVEMENT
ON THE GOLD COAST
The Gold Coast is home to some wild and wonderful musical sounds. GD FRNDS is the catalyst to the mayhem—tempering expectations and delivering unforgettable dance floor moments from some of the best live talent imaginable.
With our next showcase event held at none other than Miami Shark Bar onSaturday 23 February, we aim to deliver complete musical reverie and delight with this hand-selected lineup. Not only do we have the best local sounds, but also some heady punk noise coming in all the way from Adelaide.
Loose Leaf is back on the books and it comes just after they released their celebrated debut EP, ‘Frames’, late last year. Headed up by charismatic frontman Rory Switzer, this four-piece is a complete force of indie-rock power. This is yet another rare live performance from the group that’s sure to make you move in ways you never thought possible.
Also joining the bill is Adelaide’s Donnarumma. Hitting Queensland for the first time, this debut performance comes off the back of their most acclaimed single, ‘Rollercoaster’—an adrenalised and potent echo boom that heralds a new era of punk formality for this band. Opening the show is locals Aralunar Beagle. After some time away from the limelight, the group return in impressive form and ready to take back their psychedelic throne.
The GD FRNDS Showcase descends upon Miami Shark Bar on Saturday 23 February. First in best dressed—this will sell out.
Loose Leaf Loose Leaf is a collective of bandits from the Gold Coast. Strung together from the lost and damned of other rising groups that were crushed by the weight of it all too early, Loose Leaf is the direct response to that. The tempered and incredibly genius mind of Rory Switzer leads the band, producing an extraordinary exploration of sun-dappled, finely tuned indie-rock. STREAM
Donnarumma Donnarumma have a sound that punches you in the face and steals your wallet. The quartet from Adelaide hit hard, combating frustration, angst and desperation through psychotropic indie-rock. Their innovative, genre-jumping arrangements and hook-filled rock on new single ‘Rollercoaster’ leaves a lasting impact. STREAM
Aralunar Beagle Swaggering and swaying to the new-wave of psychedelic grooves influencing over the Gold Coast, Aralunar Beagle returns to the fold after some time off to reclaim their throne. They employ an easy, breezy calamity to their brand of acid-washed tunes that goes down so easy. STREAM
