Dune Rats are a three-piece hailing from Brisbane, Australia.
Dune Rats debut EP ‘Sexy Beach’ received praise both nationally and internationally, capturing the minds and hearts of music bloggers around the world. This led to Dune Rats first national tour in February 2011, supporting party monsters DZ Deathrays, only months after forming. The release of second EP ‘Social Atoms’ in September 2011 saw Dune Rats first taste of airplay, with single "Pogo" gaining high rotation on Australia's national radio-station Triple J.
Dune Rats singles "Fuck It" and "Red Light Green Light" followed up the boys previous airplay success and both have had high rotation on Triple J and plenty of love on YouTube (Red Light Green Light especially sparking up interest around the world). Tours with The Hive, Children Collide, FIDLAR, crowd-bending shows at SXSW, Splendour In The Grass, Spin Off Festival, Circo and the much lauded EP 'Smile' have kept the boys busy running around but they are already in and out of various studios and rehearsal rooms writing and recording for their first album, due to drop this year.
