Hey Geronimo

Formed out of Brisbane’s burgeoning indie scene in 2012, Hey Geronimo have developed into one of country’s most innovative purveyors of warped, indie-pop. Comprised of four genuine songwriters, the band’s previous four singles all achieved triple j rotation, even though they were written by different members.

This fundamental diversity, along with a wide range of influences from The Beach Boys to Weezer, has seen the band manage to steer clear of an apparent ‘indie sound’ and craft their own space in the local soundscape. After a pair of well received EPs, Hey Geronimo (2012) and Erring On The Side Of Awesome (2013), the band will release their debut LP in 2016. Having spent the last eighteen months in and out of the studio with acclaimed producer Steven Schram (San Cisco, Little Birdy), Hey Geronimo has married retro licks with eccentric, bombastic production to create a record that has further developed their sound following the EP releases. This full-length release is set to build on Hey Geronimo’s substantial local and international attention, including major international syncs, festival appearances, more than one million YouTube views, a coveted inclusion in triple j’s Next Crop 2012 list, and an entry in the US CMJ Radio Top 100 charts.
