Female-fronted Alt-rock band Dallas Frasca are heading to Eumundi on Friday 28 July to play what is sure to be one helluva gig at The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel, kicking off their 'SURF TO SNOW' tour. They'll be supported by Hobo Magic and Los Laws.
They'll be all fired up after just taking their first break in 11 years to brush the dust off; Dallas taking 9 weeks in remote communities in the NT were she works and finds inspiration, and Jeff spending his downtime in Indonesia and recording an E.P with Ugly Kid Joe’s front man, Whitfield Crane + Hall of Fame’s legendary Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool, Mondo Rock).
The band and are coming off the back of a mega last 12 months. Two European tours (including supports w/ Ugly Kid Joe (US) + The Bellrays (US)) + Two national tours + launching their own record label 'Spank Betty Records' + releasing an album and a EP. Annnnd, they recently hit the incredible 900 gig mark in 11 years since the band was founded.
Don’t be mistaken, Dallas Frasca is a band and not just named after the lead singer. Like Blondie and PJ Harvey that came before them, it is clear that namesake front woman Dallas and guitarist Jeff Curran (Eumundi's own) are the driving force of the Melbourne-based trio, in which other members rotate.
The unconventional songwriters are two guitars, vocals and a beast behind the kit. They fit somewhere in between blues riffed The Black Keys, and the incredible full-throated wail of Janis Joplin. Having no bass, the drums are integral to the sonic massive-ness that fits in-between the mechanical style riffs. Their songs are catchy, huge and you can feel the truth in their tales.
They won Triple J’s Light Your Fuse and then in 2013 they signed to French label, Verygroup (Bjork, Soja, Baby Metal, Gamma Ray) after they gained attention from placing 3rd in the AAA category for the International Song-writing Competition. In 2014 they released their controversial film clip for single You Are Beautiful that went viral and gained over ¼ million views and appeared on film, Embrace. Their album Love Army hit the Top 30 ARIA Charts in Australia in 2015, and their song Success Is The Best Revenge from the 2015 release, was the theme song as the worldwide sync on the popular TV show Bondi Ink. A collaboration with Ugly Kid Joe was released on the Californian band's latest (1st release in 19yrs) album Uglier Than They Used To Be that hit #10 charts on BBC charts in the UK.
