Hailing from Melbourne, guitar/drums two-piece This Way North are Leisha Jungalwalla (Jungal) and Cat Leahy (Sal Kimber & the Rollin’ Wheel, Miss Quincy, Lisa Miller).
This Way North began as a means of finding a way back…to find direction again, and it damn well worked. Punchy and left of centre, but with a universally appealing groove and melody, This Way North’s live shows are powerful. Cat brings solid groove based, dynamic power drumming, while Leisha sways with swampy slide guitar, slimmed down soul vocals and compelling alt-pop melodies. Sometimes likened to The Black Keys, Tame Impala and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, their unique musical connection creates an explosive sound that’s rarely
realised by just two artists on stage.
Audiences are drawnin by the powerful performances of these two seasonedmusicians. The moment This Way North embrace the stage the audience engage – that’s just how it is.
