The Imperial Hotel Eumundi welcomes THIS WAY NORTH for a gig in The Bunker on Saturday 20 April, supported by songbird Andrea Kirwin.
Recently taking out Best Regional / Outer Suburban Act 2018 at The Age Music Victoria Awards, This Way North are on a steady incline.
It’s easy to forget they are just a two-piece band. Drummer/vocalist Cat Leahy and guitarist/vocalist Leisha Jungalwalla create an explosive energy and expansive sound, that translates effortlessly from the studio to the stage.
Hailing from regional Victoria, This Way North recorded their latest offering of tracks in Toronto with Canadian producer Derek Downham (Eagles of Death Metal, Broken Social Scene, Holy F*ck). 'EP Vol. 2' is a six-song collection that showcases the band’s evolution from the rootsy rock of 2016’s EP Vol. 1, to a new realm of luscious, groove-laden alt-pop and synth-rock. A must-have soundtrack for weekend road-trips and late night lounge-room dance parties.
Currently of no fixed address, Cat and Leisha are enjoying making a home for themselves on the road and the stage. Whether in a local dive bar or at a national festival, This Way North bring more passion and energy than a 10-piece band, drumming up a contagious euphoria. The duo has brought their magic to audiences from the Arctic in Canada, across Australia's sweeping central desert and down to the geysers of Rotorua, New Zealand.
With their reputation for powerful live shows and great radio support, This Way North bring their love affair with the road and big sound, to the Sunshine Coast, inviting you to turn up the volume and let loose.
“The most rock ‘n’ roll thing I’ve ever heard, someone being stung by a stingray and… doesn’t stop the tour” - NKECHI, TRIPLE J
“Powerful drumming and lush guitar work, This Way North’s live show is high energy, groovin’-roots. With their big sound, it’s easy to forget it’s just the two of them onstage.” - FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE
“The guitar-drum duo was instantly captivating, turning my sceptical-ass into a fan within minutes... I was caught completely off guard by their powerful, dancey hooks and their impossibly cool aesthetic.” - RAG MUSIC, CANADA
