Melbourne band Eternal Crush were formed by ethereal vocalist Joey Jean and guitarist/producer Jackson Holliday. The duo made a splash with their debut EP Heavenly Body which they co-produced with Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper). Strum’s extensive knowledge of synthesisers and drum machines complimented the duo’s sound to deliver a body of work that brings back memories of the Drive soundtrack and Twin Peaks. Since then, Eternal Crush have sold out a headline show and supported the likes of Miami Horror and Client Liaison. Eternal Crush are currently working on their second EP which will be released later this year.
