Teen band fig­ur­ing on the lo­cal scene

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

A FRE­MAN­TLE band is mak­ing waves in the WA mu­sic in­dus­try af­ter be­ing the youngest band to make it to The Big Splash com­pe­ti­tion.

East Fre­man­tle’s Matt Mur­phy and Josh Gal­lagher, North Fre­man­tle’s Ross Mace and Floreat’s Chet Mor­gan might still be toil­ing away in high school, but that has not stopped the group mak­ing a name for them­selves with their in­die band Fig­ure­head.

They will com­pete in the semi-fi­nals of the com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­day; one of 10 bands left from the 207 en­trants.

Only two bands from each of the two semi-fi­nals will make it into the grand fi­nal.

Lead singer Matt said mak­ing it into the fi­nal 10 was a big hon­our, and gave them the chance to com­pete for the $10,000 first prize.

“It’s just awe­some to be able to play along­side some of our favourite WA bands like Foam and The High Leary’s, who we’ll be com­pet­ing with at The Big Splash gig at The Rose­mount Ho­tel,” he said.

Fig­ure­head com­pete in the sec­ond semi-fi­nal at the Rose­mount Ho­tel on Au­gust 7.

Fre­man­tle band Fig­ure­head: Matt Mur­phy (guitar and vo­cals), Josh Gal­lagher (guitar and vo­cals), Chet Mor­gan (drums) and Ross Mace (bass).
