|Brisbane’s hardest-working purveyors of melodic rock Drawn from Bees are this week packing their finest cufflinks and vintage suits in preparation for their debut international appearances – first stop USA, followed by Hong Kong and UK.
Drawn from Bees were handpicked to represent Queensland in the international music stakes, kicking off the expedition for new audiences at West Hollywood’s Whiskey A Go Go this Sunday April 25 as part of Musexpo LA. Following up with further showcase invitations at Music Matters Hong Kong and Musexpo London, 2010 is set to be the international year for the quartet who have already picked up airplay across various stations in the USA.
Drawn from Bees have spent the past two years sticking tight to a self-imposed schedule to write, record and release a body of work every six months, enjoying high rotation of hit single ‘Long Tooth Setting Sun’ across Australian radio including national youth broadcaster Triple J. With the fourth installment Fear Not The Footsteps Of The Departed due to be released on May 21, the mad goal-setting may have come to an end, though the prolific foursome are just reaching full stride on the live scene. Having just completed their third east-coast Australian tour, with an appearance at V Festival thrown in for good measure, Drawn from Bees will tour nationally around Australia in July to give audiences further afield a taste of their sharp, four-piece melodies which sit atop experimental indie-rock sounds.
