FREE ENTRY - 8PM Sydney Power Pop quartet Gavin Bowles & The Distractions hit the ground running in 2023; after releasing a series of catchy singles (“On The Telephone (I Used to Call You)”, “Break My Heart” and “Here Comes The Heartache”) and blazing through a stellar run of headline shows, the band released their debut album “Phoning It In” in October (including a limited run of pink vinyls!). “Phoning It In” is a sharp, no-holds-barred album of zippy pop-rock songs dealing with heartbreak, boredom, anxiety and nostalgia. The album is sonically driven by The Distractions incredibly tight and nuanced performances; flourishes of bright guitars, hop-along bass lines and watertight drum grooves paint an adoring landscape for Bowles heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Lead single “On The Telephone (I Used to Call You)” is a nostalgia-dipped fever dream of teenage infatuation over the landline. Whereas the second and third singles “Break My Heart” and “Here Comes The Heartache”; reveal a more candid and vulnerable side, dealing with lost love and the anxieties of leaving a life behind. Bowles & The Distractions have quickly gained a reputation for their energetic and refined live shows in the lead up to their debut album. “Phoning It In” is a blistering troupe of catchy and earnest pop-rock songs that combine their Power Pop influences with Indie Rock sensibilities and showcase The Distractions talents along with Bowles charm, wit, sincerity and humour. Free entry. Support: Ash Acid
