Sally Chicane formed in 2015 when a group of old and new friends all found themselves living in Canberra at the same time and wanting to start a band. They clicked immediately through rock, despite their varied backgrounds and influences from classic rock, metal, punk, indie, and grunge. Kristy has had a long career playing in Darwin all-girl band Bleach, Hamble, Lodebar, plus a couple of Canberra cover bands before she found the Sally Chicane guys. Mick is a multi-instrumentalist who shares songwriting duties, and Andrew is Sally Chicane’s bass player first, although he does seem to want to play in as many bands in Canberra as he can.
In December 2015, Sally Chicane headed into the studio, recording their debut EP, “Consumption”, the title track “Consumption” being featured as 2XX track of the week in April 2016. The lead single from that release “TTFU” has been aired on Triple J Unearthed internet radio.
In November 2017, they headlined “Rock for Tara”, a fund-raising gig for the Tara Costigan Foundation. Sally Chicane returned the the studio in June 2018 to record their first full-length release. Late 2018 saw a personnel change with Alicia joining the band.
Sally Chicane released their debut album “Internal Monologue” in 2019.
