Sunshine-Coast Indie-Pop quartet Selahphonics' new single 'Had Our Heaven'

Carving out a reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working independent indie-pop bands, Sunshine Coast-based Selahphonic recently unveiled their new single ‘Had Our Heaven’ – The lead track lifted from their forthcoming and debut EP ‘Therapy’ - Recorded at Cooper Lane Studio, Sydney by Chris Collins (Gang of Youths, Tigertown, Middle Kids).


Keeping in line with their signature anthemic stadium pop sound, ‘Had Our Heaven’ glimmers with synth-laden hooks, infectious lead-guitar licks and is backed by a simple, yet sturdy and bouncing rhythm section; all combining to complement the catchy sing-a-long melodies of endearing front man, Jamie Coyle. 

Since their inception in 2011, Selahphonic have released a slew of standout singles widely embraced by various media platforms, including tastemaker blogs Crack in The Road (USA), Acid Stag (AUS), Pilerats (AUS), stellar reviews and rotation via triple j Unearthed and other key support from the likes of MTV, Tone Deaf and The Music.  

In 2016, the group maintained a consistent touring schedule, including a performance at Australia’s largest music industry conference, BIGSOUND, where they caught the attention of one of the countries most esteemed booking agencies, The Harbour Agency, who signed the quartet immediately.

As well as constantly traversing through local live music venues, Selahphonic have put together DIY backyard show tours and performed globally, which includes appearances at showcases and festivals Culture Collide, CMJ and Canadian Music Week.

“A solid attempt right here at the stadium pop sound of The Wombats and Two Door Cinema Club."
