Since forming in 2014; the girls have built a small army of Perth fans; and are on a mission to get some East Coast groupies as they continue their love of #fourgirlsonevan and #groupweeingbythesideoftheroad style travel.

The ‘hawks ran a successful crowd-funding campaign in the lead up to Xmas to get straight back into the studio with legendary producer Dave Parkin to work on their second EP. New Friends is the first single…
