Dash & Will

Charlie Thorpe and Josie De Sousa-Reay first butted heads in a Melbourne classroom twelve years back at the ripe old age of nine. Wind the clock forward and hostilities are put on hold so that they might form their indie folk duo Dash & Will (names they would have been called had they been born boys). Folk soon turned to pop and early demos won over Mercury Records head honcho Peter Karpin. Ignoring any traditional pop stylings, the pair's major label debut single, 'Pick You Up', (released May 2008) heralded a sparklingly-fresh new Australian act on the rise. Upon its release, the girls' authoritative, undeniable long-player Up In Something peaked at number four on the ARIA Heatseekers chart,and was followed up with international support slots for the Tings Tings, the Kooks, and the Futureheads.Dash & Will also thrilled punters on festival line-ups including Homebake, Southbound, and Falls.In March 2010 the girls headed off to the US to begin work on album two.With a SXSW slot just around the corner and upcoming shows throughout Australia and the U.K, get ready for a BIG Dash & Will twenty-eleven!
