STATE THEATRE COURTYARD
Gap Year was formed in early 2019, with members having played together in various configurations around Perth W.A. Built around two primary songwriters (taking shared lead vocal duties), Gap Year offers an eclectic and transportive live set that puts an emphasis on extended song structure and thoughtful harmony. Through a mutual appreciation for mid-80s Australiana, the band tries to capture 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.
Having recently put out two singles (Bon Soir and We All Know), Gap Year are looking to release their debut album Flat Out in April 2021.
