Straight outta the mean streets of Adelaide, West Thebarton have been teetering on the precipice of greatness for some time. In 2016, the band forged themselves into our consciousness with their self titled EP, support slots with the likes of Bad//Dreems, Cloud Nothings and King Gizz, plus appearances at BIGSOUND and Groovin’ The Moo.
Reluctant to take their foot off the gas, the band tore right into 2017 adding new drummer Caitlin Thomas to the fray. An ensuing industry scuffle landed them a management deal with Fidelity Corp (Karnivool, Thelma Plum), and shortly after, self proclaimed super-fan James Tidswell of Violent Soho signed them to his new label, Domestic La La.
Committed to tape over just one week, between day jobs, West Thebarton’s 2018 debut album Different Beings Being Different ended up earning countless glowing reviews, an ARIA nomination and spots on the UK’s legendary Reading and Leeds festivals.
Returning home (via India), the band have played to night after night of sold out Adelaide crowds, jumped on the national Falls Festival tour, and now they’re bringing their straight-from-the-gut rock to Big Pineapple Music Festival.
