Old Mervs - Live In Exmouth Show 2024

At the heart of Old Mervs lies an unbreakable bond between lifelong friends Henry Carrington-Jones and David House. Hailing from the tiny farming community of Kojonup, a town three hours south of Perth, Western Australia, their musical journey began in a repurposed stable during their high school days. Henry on drums and David on guitar/vox set the stage for what would become a unique, slacker brand of indie rock that quickly propelled Old Mervs into the spotlight.

Amid pandemic lockdowns, the duo seized the opportunity to tour relentlessly within the iron curtain of Western Australia, selling out shows and cultivating a devoted fan base enchanted by their distinctive sound, notably the breakout single 'Cellphone.' As their streaming numbers soared into the millions, Old Mervs signed to indie stalwart label Dew Process, and found themselves on an increasingly upward trajectory.

Despite mainstream media’s indifference, the band's breakthrough came with 'Where I Go,' charted at #123 in the 2022 triple j Hottest 100 after only three radio spins that year. This triumph, coupled with a groundswell of fan support, propelled Old Mervs into supporting international giants like Liam Gallagher and The Wombats, as well as sharing stages with local favorites Spacey Jane and King Stingray. Their second EP, 'Give It Up' (2023), debuted at #2 on the ARIA Australian Albums chart, and 'Sweetheart' secured a spot at #47 in the 2023 triple j Hottest 100.

As 2024 unfolds, Old Mervs have embarked on a massive Australian regional tour, are gearing up to record their debut album, and have their sights set on international stages. Retaining their larrikin spirit and raw country charm, Old Mervs guarantee an unforgettable experience, whether meeting them in person or catching their electrifying performances on stage - either way you’ll be met with their signature greeting, “How the fark are ya?” Prepare for a musical journey that transcends boundaries, as Old Mervs continues to redefine the Australian indie rock scene with each unforgettable chord and a mateship that connects them as much to each other as it does to their fans.
