Five Mile Town are an alternative rock band formed in Devonport, who now find themselves catching trams to gigs in Melbourne.
Releasing their first single in 2012 the band had humble goals. After their music video ‘Saturated’ received over 50,000 views on Youtube in a week, momentum built and their debut self-titled EP quickly followed. That same year their song ‘Fatal Flaw’ was APRA Silver Scroll nominated and ‘You Would Know’ won the International Songwriting Competition Teen Category, cementing the band as one to watch.
2013 saw the band move to Melbourne where they continued to develop their sound by touring Australia.
The release of their Sophomore EP ‘Other Ghosts’, recorded by Andrew Buckton (Midnight Youth, Clap Clap Riot), brought a strong end to 2013. Singles ‘Curious Creature’ and ‘Solo’ showcased a band matured beyond their years.
2014 began with single ‘The Lucky Ones’, arguably the bands strongest offering to date.
The band are no longer, but the songs remain as a testament to their musical and songwriting talents.
