Snap Scene: Eurogliders, Rod Laver Arena, 30th November 2017

Eurogliders are an indie pop band who formed in 1980 in Perth, Western Australia, which featured Grace Knight on vocals and Bernie Lynch on guitar and vocals. In 1984, Eurogliders released an Australian top ten album, This Island, which spawned their No. 2 hit single, “Heaven (Must Be There)”. “Heaven” also peaked at No. 21 on the United States, Billboard Mainstream Rock charts and appeared on the Hot 100.

Another Australian top ten album, Absolutely, followed in 1985, which provided three further local top ten singles, “We Will Together”, “The City of Soul” and “Can’t Wait to See You”. Australian rock music historian, Ian McFarlane, described Eurogliders as “the accessible face of post-punk new wave music. The band’s sophisticated brand of pop was traditional in its structure, but displayed the decidedly ‘modern veneer’ (hip clothes, heavy use of synthesiser)”.
