In Hindsight

There are many things to like about 'Hunting Grounds'; a band made up of six talented male musicians.

The band originally began as 'Howl', winning the prestigious Triple J High competition in 2009 with the song 'Blackout'.
However, complications and confusion arose with other bands who also bore the same name, thus the name change.

The band first started when the teens were students together at Ballarat High School.
Their music has been described as 'post-punk' or 'dream pop' with an aggressive backbone of drums and bass.
Their main influences include Radiohead, Stowdive and Stone Roses.

Band members are multi-skilled; three band members are involved in song writing and various members sing.
Daniel Mari is the drummer, Galen Strachan-keyboards, Michael Belsat-vocals and guitar, Jon Crawford-bass, Tim Street-guitar and Lachlan Morish-guitar and vocals.
Their sound is spacey and mesmerizing. Lyrics are sharp and intelligent. Who can forget lyrics such as 'swimming in a riptide, there's no elegance in suicide?'

The debut album of 'Hunting Grounds' (In Hindsight) has just been released, and has had much favourable response.
'Hunting Grounds' will be performing at the Big Day Out events right across Australia in January 2013 so if you would like to see them don't miss out.

I predict a bright future for these amazing performers.
