Dune Rats are Danny Beus and BC Michaels. Forming late in 2010 it didn’t take long for Dune Rats to become known for not only their catchy garage surf tunes but for being able to back them up with one of the most visceral, energetic live shows in the country.
Beus, arguably one of Brisbane’s most outlandish and entertaining front men, matched with the drumming skills of BC Michaels will have audiences quickly slipping into the care free party vibe this duo has to offer.
Their unique brand of sunshine punk can be heard carried through their EPs ‘Sexy Beach’ ‘Social Atoms’ and the soon to be released ‘Smile’ with the bands two singles ‘Pogo’ and ‘Fuck It’ already hailed as summer anthems. Their current single ‘Red Light Green Light’ is set to have no less success.
From very early on the duo have been catching the eyes and ears of international indie royalty supporting the likes of The Drums, Best Coast, Cults, Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti and The Hives.
Not just another indie two-piece, there is a unique sincerity behind their carefree music that sees them set aside from the pack. With a new EP and a debut album in their sights for 2013 the sky really is the limit for this young duo.
