Melbourne-based post punks DESTRENDS have a remarkable way of driving their gritty hooks straight through the core of their listeners.
After recently releasing two stand out singles ‘Medication’ and ‘Missing People’ DESTRENDS have released their new EP Wasteland, containing the two aforementioned singles and two new cuts ‘Wasteland’ and ‘Peaches’.
Wasteland is a continuation of DESTRENDS propensity to capture zeitgeist in a powerful yet accessible sonic tapestry.

DESTRENDS are a Melbourne based post-punk collective who produce an angular, bass-driven sound and have built a reputation as a distinctly theatrical live outfit. With a sound influenced by early 80’s new wave, Destrends produce a confident mix of gloomy goth-laden punk with some real Aussie grit.
DESTRENDS 2017 EP Lousy Lover solidified the group as a menace to behold, scoring support slots with Aussie favourites King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Spiderbait, & Hoodoo Gurus.
Destrends returned in late 2019 with a new single ‘Medication‘. It warned of a post-apocalyptic dystopia. The track speaks of our leaders apathy towards issues that affect the next generation, with a focus on climate change. In a political climate where the individual feels increasingly powerless, hope begins to fade as we surrender to an inevitable fate.
The second single ‘Missing People‘, is defined by the well-honed thickness of a three-piece guitar driven band, singer Matt Savage conjures an anecdote of subtle dissonance and hope in equal measure.
