In 2017, on the coastal town of Kiama on Pacific Avenue, a four-piece garage rock band was born, blending authentic rock & roll with today’s modern sound. They released their debut single, "In your arms", quickly becoming a familiar track in their set, reaching #1 on Triple J Unearthed in early May, led to the band landing a slot on 2017’s Sounds of the Suburbs festival line up in Cronulla. The band stems its influences from the Surf-rock-garage sound, looking up to bands such as Hockey Dad and Skegss. Other influences include Gang Of Youths, Powderfinger, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Crowded House.
With more releases, Pacific Avenue found themselves supporting artists such as Ocean Alley, The Wombats, Crooked Colours and San Cisco, to name a few. The band finished the year off by playing at Jindabyne's Snowtunes Festival and the Lost Paradise over the new year.
The PR Files was stoked to work with Pacific Avenue alongside their management AudioPaxx, on the release of their debut EP “Strawberry Skies” and national tour.
