Australia – the band, not the country – will hit Ballarat next Thursday.

The five-piece band has just launched its new single, Breathe In, from debut album Portraits of People, Places and Movies.

Named to echo a 1980s Australian pub rock vibe, the band is described as a blend of rock and new wave.
