Formed in early 2019, Gap Year shares a mutual appreciation for mid-80s Australiana. The band captures the melodicism of The Church and The Go-Betweens, whilst drawing on the production stylings of modern groups such as Real Estate and The War on Drugs.
Gap Year has made nostalgic tones mixed with heart wrenching songwriting and artform. These latest songs make for more intimate moments that will reward repeat listens.

“Warm, jangly and endearing songwriting. Really love the balance between that vibrant guitar melodies and those vocals!” – Claire Mooney, Triple J
