Bands You Didn’t Know Were Australian

Australia has produced so many wonderful bands and artists over the years, but, many of them you probably weren’t aware are Australian. When we listen to musicians, we don’t tend to fixate on where they are from, as it’s the music we enjoy. But, for those who are a little more curious, knowing a little about an artist can help you to understand their work a little better. So, for those of you interested, here are a few bands and artists you probably didn’t know were Aussies!

Jet

Remember the song ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl?’ Well, Jet had a hit single, and record many moons ago with the catchy, rocky number. They gained legions of die-hard fans and released three successful records before disbanding. But, we bet you didn’t know that the band actually formed in Melbourne, Victoria in the late-1990s! The group recently reformed last year, and are in the process of touring and making their fourth album.
