“Experimental punk-metal that you can dance to” – Christine Cassis, Rolling Stone Magazine Ouch My Face is a three-piece experimental punk band from Melbourne via rural Australia, who left home to avoid lives spent working in timber mills and butcher shops.

Jordan and Ben first became mates when their mutual passion, in exploring and writing new music, yearned to be shared. When not playing and writing, they were raiding their father’s album collections for inspiration and direction. With the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Crowded House and Simon and Garfunkel they were in good stead for the future. Also drawing from contemporary artists such as Fleet Foxes, Angus Stone & Bon Iver they have developed a great, fresh sound.
