A four-headed Irish-Australian rock Hydra from Sydney's Inner West, Flickertail play guitar-fuelled rock and roll exactly the way it's supposed to be played. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Thin Lizzy, Arctic Monkeys, and The Darkness, the band honed their sound in the garages and booze dens of Sydney before hitting the road in 2015 to showcase their unique sound at every pub, club and back yard along Australia's eastern coast.
Since their inception, the band have played relentlessly and are reaping the rewards. An incendiary live performance honed in the booze dens and back yard of Australia's Eastern coast was refined on stages shared with Aussie legends Buffalo and the Superjesus, before international support slots with the likes of Supersuckers, Zak Starkey (Oasis, the Who) and Living Colour.
After years building a dedicated following throughout Australia, and rave reviews for debut EP "Hurry Up and Wait", the boys brought their infamous live show to the UK for an international tour in October 2018.
In 2019, armed with only their wits, guitars and their stunning good looks, Flickertail will continue to preach the good word of honest, authentic Aussie rock and roll around the globe.
