Sound: Alt pop-rock
Band Members: Isabella “Izzi” Manfredi, Gideon Bensen, Jack Moffitt, Thomas Champion and Luke Davison.
Style: Retro rockers with an emphasis on skinny jeans and leather jackets. Manfredi, inspired by Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde, nails New Wave cool with her blunt bangs, willowy frame, highly coveted cheekbones and mix of simple white tanks, high-waisted shorts and tight dresses.
Big Breaks: The quintet’s catchy single, “Is This How You Feel?” garnered the band a Vanda & Young Songwriting Award and an Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards nomination for Best Pop Release.
Coachella Connection: Fellow Aussie Flume — who will also take the stage at the fest — featured Manfredi on his track “The Greatest View.”
Fun Fact: Champion and Moffitt, who met in high school, played covers of The Rolling Stones with Manfredi before the band’s latest incarnation.
Up Next: Their debut full-length album will be out this summer.
