Bands You Didn’t Know Were Australian

Savage Garden

Pop duo Savage Garden enjoyed overnight success in 1997 when their song Truly Madly Deeply was catapulted to the top of the charts. The pair formed in Brisbane, when multi-instrumentalist Daniel Jones placed an ad in a local newspaper seeking a vocalist. Darren Hayes was the only respondent, and the two began working together. Within a year they had secured a manager and negotiated a recording contract. The guys went their separate ways in 2001, after selling over 20 million copies of the two albums they produced.
