The Boat People

Described as Australia’s bliss pop maestros, bands The Boat People have supported give an inkling of their sound including The Shins, David Byrne, Midlake and Idlewild, but most comparisons are drawn to Australian legends Crowded House who have left a distant but indelible mark. Speaking of indelible marks the band has been making a huge impression in the US and UK. In the UK the band played at 2088 Great Escape alongside Vampire Weekend, The Wombats and Ting Tings attracting giant promoter Live Nation to take the band under their wing for booking tours and Club Fandango to release a vinyl single. In the US the band had extensive airplay on influential tastemaker show Nick Harcourt’s Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW, Indie 103.1 and was a CMJ feature artist and won the CMJ grand prize in March. This led to being picked up by The Agency Group for booking tours in the US and assistance form a prominent US radio plugger and lawyer.
