Music of the future
DASH and Will met at an inner-city alternative school in Melbourne at the ripe old age of 13 - and haven't looked back since.
Charlie Thorpe (aka Dash) and Josie DeSousa-Reay's (aka Will) mutual obsession with music is what fuelled their desire to bring music to the masses.
With 18th birthdays and Year 12 out of the way, the girls had time to focus only on music. Half an album and countless shows later, Dash and Will were playing alongside the likes of The Kooks, Future Heads, End Of Fashion, Little Birdy and Tings Tings.
Coming off the road the girls went straight back into the studio to capture the energy and antics of touring: the loud guitars, the smashing drums and the mad times with old and new friends and so here we are we with Out Of Control, the first single taken from this session.
Now, at just 19, the girls are named as the ARIA future artist of 2009, and Melbourne's The Age newspaper as “the act most likely to succeed for 2009.”
* Dash and Will perform at the Hoey Moey next Wednesday.
