No, this isn't the start of a whimsical little children's story, it is actually the start of the Findlay sisters' journey into being a superb all-girl Rock band, blazing a trail through their native Australia and beyond.
With the sounds of Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin the staple listening pleasure of the girls' parents, it was inevitable that if the girls were to embark on a music career it would be Rock based. Hannah, the eldest Findlay daughter, then 15, took up drum lessons after being attracted to the kit they were given as a family present. Soon, sisters Hannah (13) took up guitar and Sarah (12) took to the keyboards. A band was forming. Holly, then just 7 years old, maybe saw something was missing and asked her parents for a bass guitar!
The band write their own material with the occasional cover. I saw this band researching a number of all-girl bands, but they caught my eye with the brilliant "Through The Clover". I was hooked, great energy, superb vocals and great old style Rock riffs. They are certainly going places, and to think, it all started in a shed!
"Bad Reality", the second E.P. came in 2012. The title track is reminiscent of Pat Benatar and for me, real Rock that could have come from the 70s or even 80s. "Ruby Skies" is definitely like early 60s Heart while the chorus is similar to very early Blondie. "Who Are You?" is feminine Ozzy and Black Sabbath while "Black Water Rising" would make Plant and Page smile as the Led Zeppelin influence is plain to see, the chorus is also akin to Guns 'N Roses' Axl Rose, vocal wise. This is real Rock from a very talented family!
