INDIE ROCK, INDIE POP
WHO ARE THE TINDERBOXERS?
“I’m usually allergic to Kooks-y guitar pop, but The Tinderboxers have got all the tune and none of the cloying residue that sort of thing usually leaves on my skin. This is driving thumping, clever, sharply-tailored and instantly danceable stuff.” - The Underground Stage 2020
From their island home of lutruwita/Tasmania, indie rock outfit The Tinderboxers are bringing something buoyant and honest to the Australian indie music scene. From humble high school origins, the four-piece band has accumulated an extensive following, drawing local, national and international fans with their affable, upbeat charm. Their success is reflected in their performances alongside big names such as Lime Cordiale, Ruby Fields, Luca Brasi and Maddy Jane.
And they’re leaping from strength to strength! As 2021 recipients of the Nick Balcombe Foundation’s Live Your Dream grant, fans can only expect to see exciting new things from this dynamic, “danceable” crew. The Tinderboxers are indie music’s ‘ones to watch’.
WHAT ARE THEY UP TO?
Tinderboxers return to stages this April in support of fresh single WHO ARE YOU set to release on Friday 8th of April.
Recorded at Sydney’s Golden Retriever Studios with Simon ‘berkfinger’ Berckelman (Lime Cordiale, Courtney Barnett, Boy and Bear, Art vs Science), Who Are You presents one of the band’s live fan-favourites in a new light. With pulsating drums, syncopated bass-lines, gritty guitars and splashes of synths, piano and keyboards, the song’s sonic exploration details The Tinderboxers evolving sound, ever-present desire for playfulness and ability to create music that gets you moving and smiling.
The Tinderboxers will be appearing throughout April and May playing in the following cities/venues: Melbourne Thursday 14th April at The Gasometer Hotel, Hobart Saturday 22nd of April at The Grand Poobah, and Launceston Saturday 7th May at The Royal Oak Hotel.
