My review:

  • Songs are cool
  • Catchy
  • Work well as a band
  • Please introduce each song name before you start playing
  • Engage with the audience a lot more as you obviously have plenty of energy; so share it, and encourage it, from the audience too

This Sydney- based (originally solo) project launched in 2017 featuring dreamy surf sounds, punctuated by heavy rhythms reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s music scene. With a release of a self-produced EP using only a mobile phone and laptop software, before growing into a five-piece band in early 2018.

Bone Graft produces electric sounds which draw from old school rock ‘n’ roll, lo-fi garage punk and contemporary influences. A hi-bred of sound that speaks from roots of everything from The Black Keys to Rolling Stones, with a little Beach Boys’ie (even Dick Dale) surf feel still lingering through a lot of songs. I liked it, it was cool but also uplifting and a great set. Thanks guys. Hope to see you perform with Broc back on deck soon.
