Roadhouses are a Sydney based three-piece that plays sedated rock n roll. Their sound is brooding, moody and cinematic; anti-love songs on half speed.
Originally a solo bedroom-musician project, the band was formed in 2014 when guitarist and songwriter Yvonne Moxham invited Mess Hall drummer Cec Condon to play what was meant to be a one-off show. Bass player James Bellesini joined a year later after a recording session in NYC at Rare Book Room.
Drawing influence from by Linda Perhacs, Conway Twitty and Yo La Tengo, they have been described as heartbreak hotel on codeine and velvet country.
Their forthcoming album features songs of intimacy that document half a decade of lessons learned and discarded, parties and aloneness, boredom, desire and dark romance. It will be released soon via Broken Stone Records.
The band is:
Yvonne Moxham on vocals and guitar, Cec Condon on drums and percussion, James Bellesini on bass.
