This Way North are from Melbourne VIC (Australia). And yeah, I guess it’s true, we’ve got a love affair going with the music scene in Melbourne. Must be something in the water downunder.
Punchy and left of centre, but with a universally appealing groove and melody, This Way North’s live shows are powerful.
Cat brings solid groove based, dynamic power drumming, while Leisha sways with swampy slide guitar, slimmed down soul vocals and compelling alt- pop melodies.
Sometimes likened to The Black Keys, Tame Impala and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, their unique musical connection creates an explosive sound that’s rarely realised by just two artists on stage.
Audiences are drawn in by the powerful performances of these two seasoned musicians. The moment This Way North embrace the stage the audience engage – that’s just how it is.
Recorded with producer Shane O’Mara (Tim Rogers, The Audrey’s, Lisa Miller) the duo’s 2016 debut EP featured singles ‘Pretty Much’ and ‘Don’t You Fly’ with official clips directed by Agostino Soldati, and was followed by shows with Thirsty Merc, as well as Toronto showcases and festivals such as Moomba, Nannup Music Festival, Bendigo Blues and Roots, Swagger Music Festival and Wollombi Music festival.
The duo’s ongoing love affair with Canada saw them flying to Toronto in July 2016 to record with producer Derek Downham (Broken Social Scene, Holy F*ck).
This Way North first met in the north…Canada in fact; at the renowned British Columbian ArtsWells Festival. While hanging at the festival, they discovered that their permanent homes were both north…north-side Melbourne that is…half a world away, but only 500m apart.
Once they’d returned to Melbourne, they treated their post-tour blues by doing what all self-respecting musicians do: playing music and what came out was good…really good.
This Way North began as a means of finding a way back… to find direction again, and it damn well worked.
