Melbourne’s White Summer  have had a huge 2015 following the success of their last two singles “I Know A Place We Can Love”  and “Ode To My A.D.D.”  Their success continued with securing radio play on Triple J  and other community stations, featuring in Rolling Stone Aus  Top five tracks of the week and Home and Hosed  “High Five: The Best Aussie Songs Of The Week”. This amazing response was catalyst to the band supporting the likes of DMA’s, Holy Holy, Kingswood, The Delta Riggs, Magic Bones,  and Harts.

White Summer  cemented the year’s success with a one-month residency at Sydney’s Hotel Steyne sharing the stage with great Australian acts Drunk Mums and Holy Holy.

2016 saw White Summer start with a bang having their music featured on popular U.S. TV show SHAMELESS,  reaching a viewing audience of more than two million.

”I Know A Place We Can Love” EP  was recorded at Grove Studios with acclaimed producer Burke Reid  who has worked with the likes of Courtney Barnett , The Drones, Seekae,  and DZ Deathrays.

2016 will see White Summer  work with Burke Reid  again on their much anticipated debut album,  along with tour announcements  coming soon.
