"We write music that makes us feel good," says one half of Bag Raiders, Chris Stracey. Seven years after their ARIA chart topping, J Award nominated debut album, the pair's mentality hasn't wavered.
"We've always kept things as varied as possible," says Jack Glass pointing to Bag Raiders' early mix tapes which moved from hip hop, to rock, to dance records.
In 2008, the Bag Raiders struck a hit with their very first original track "Fun Punch" (Bang Gang 12 Inches / Fool's Gold). Their 2009 single "Shooting Stars" then propelled them into the spotlight. Eventually making their way to Los Angeles, the boys got to work on new material resulting in four EPs on Island / Universal - Waterfalls, Friend Inside, Checkmate and Beat Me To The Punch.
In 2017 Shooting Stars exploded back into the charts worldwide riding the wave of a series of internet memes, a Jimmy Kimmel feature and extensive worldwide press.
