Dune Rats- Dalai Lama, Big Banana, Marijuana

dune rats

Dune Rats are an Australian indie/jangle/surf/garage rock band from Brisbane, Queensland. The band is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Danny Beus and drummer BC Michaels; as well as bassist Brett Jansch (formerly of Bleeding Knees Club), who joined the band as an official member in 2013. The band was originally formed in 2011 by Beus and Michaels. Their first EP, Sexy Beach, was released that same year; which was produced and recorded by Tim Morrissey of The John Steel Singers

A second EP, Atoms, was released in September 2011 and featured the single “Pogo.” It featured production work from Morrissey, Berkfinger (Philadelphia Grand Jury) and Sean Caskey. The band received attention on Triple J Unearthed, and were selected to play the Gold Coast leg of the 2012 Big Day Out. The band released a new single, Fuck It, in 2012; as well as touring with bands such as Bleeding Knees Club, DZ Deathrays, Children Collide and Violent Soho. 2013 saw the release of the band’s third EP, Smile. The EP featured the single “Red Light, Green Light,” for which a one-take video was made where the band re-enacted the DZ Deathrays video for “The Mess Up,” replacing their beer-sculling with bong-smoking. The video has picked up over 250 thousand views. The band also picked up international support slots for acts such as The Hives, Best Coast and FIDLAR; the latter of whom they toured with through the US as well. They were also invited to perform at SXSW in Austin, Texas; as well as a tour of South-East Asia.
