“The guitar-drum duo was instantly captivating, turning my skeptical-ass into a fan within minutes… I was caught completely off guard by their powerful, dancey hooks and their impossibly cool aesthetic.” – Rag Music, Canada
Taking out Best Outer Suburban Act 2018 at The Age Music Victoria Awards, Australian act This Way North are on a steady incline. It’s easy to forget they are just a two-piece band. Drummer/vocalist Cat Leahy and guitarist/vocalist Leisha Jungalwalla create explosive energy and expansive sound, that translates effortlessly from the studio to the stage. Live is where they really shine!
After spending 3 years touring full time and living on the road, This Way North currently taking their COVID forced grounding in Yackandandandah VIC.
2020 saw them play an official showcase at Folk Alliance International in New Orleans and record in their next EP in Nashville which is set to be released in March 2021.
Whether in a local dive bar or at a major festival, This Way North bring more passion and energy than a 10-piece band, drumming up a contagious euphoria. The duo has brought their show to audiences from the Arctic in Canada, across Australia’s sweeping central desert and down to the geysers of New Zealand.
