Dave Sonntag owns a rhythm-centric sound. The former professional drummer feeds off catchy drum patterns to start listeners on an alluring ride, while elegant but powerful vocals keep them there.

Dave's latest release, "Cutting Holes In Hills" - recorded with Matt Gio (Birds of Tokyo, San Cisco, Illy) - flows on themes of the trials of mateship. With spins on Triple J and several weeks leading the Unearthed charts, the song boasts an awesome drop into the first chorus giving the track a powerful and lasting pulse.

While sitting in the engine room as drummer for some of Perth's favourite acts, Dave has previously flown under the radar as a singer-songwriter. Success as a solo act in China, Austria, and even Canadian mountaintops sees Dave return home to Western Australia where 2018 promises to be an exciting year for the fresh talent.
