Sometimes a band just comes out of nowhere. You might hear it in the background at a bar, or it might hit you on the radio while you're stuck in traffic. Chances are, if you've heard Sydney's
Cigars Of The Pharaoh, you'll know about it.
With a power-packed sound that tips a hat to the blues rock genre of old, Cigars has brought the groove back to the Australian music scene - with a punch that feels good. It's big, bold, loud, but so laden with grooves and hooks, you can't help but move and sing along. Guitar-driven rock hasn't been this good for too long, and it's a more than welcome renaissance.
The band formed in the early part of 2015 as a four-piece, a mixed bag of guys with a multitude of musical influences and pasts that gelled from the get-go. From indie pop to hard rock, soul to RnB, this special union of musical minds has created something that's fresh, based on everything they've learned and heard from a combined experience of many decades inside the scene.
Cigars Of The Pharaoh completed the recording of its debut EP within months of forming, such was the pace at which their unique blend of talents moved. Hooking up with Sean Carey (Thirsty Merc) at Church Street Studios, they laid down a four-track EP across a single weekend. Standing still is not a pursuit of interest for Cigars.
Mystery Highway was the result, and it's already made waves, with national airplay on Triple M and a shows played across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, with many more to come.
Cigars Of The Pharaoh is fast becoming one of the hottest new acts in Australia, and is definitely not to be missed.
