Archdukes

Archdukes were formed on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland in 2010. Amidst some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and amongst the confusion that surrounds a tourist destination,
they began to write music inspired by the various records and soundtracks that had pervaded their formative years, noting the irony that their sound in no-way reflected their surroundings.
With an e.p. in the works, and a dynamic live show, who knows where they'll be next...
