Forming in 2009, Luca Brasi cut their teeth playing melodic, hard-hitting and precise punk rock in lounge rooms and filthy pubs with noisy, heart-swelling passion. Their 2011 debut album ‘Extended Family’, produced in their hometown with the help of mates Nic White and local hero Lincoln Le Fevre, drew inspiration from the geeky, warm punk sound pioneered by Lifetime and Jawbreaker and melded it expertly with the fiery, riff-driven punk rock of acts like A Wilhelm Scream and Polar Bear Club. It resonated strongly; scoring the band a spot in Triple J’s Short Fast Loud midyear report and legions of admirers the nation over.

2013’s follow up, the aptly named 7” release 'Tassie' further developed this sound and gained more ground, Kill Your Stereo proclaiming; “Luca Brasi are doing some serious good for Australian punk music at the moment.”

Luca Brasi unwrapped their second album ‘By A Thread’ via Poison City Records in March 2014. ‘By A Thread’ highlights vocalist Tyler Richardson’s everyman lyrical refrains and the signature highly skilled guitar work of Tom Busby. This second album pushes the signature Luca Brasi sound into more dynamic territory. Eleven songs of intelligent construction with an eye for quality and considered production, delivered with all the warmth you would expect from an album recorded in the company of friends, at home in Tassie. Rolling Stone proclaimed “These angst affected choruses may shortly be soaring from Australian backyards and into the lives of new fans the world over”.

Luca Brasi have toured Australia relentlessly, their sharp live performances and undeniable dedication to good times winning over peers and crowds alike alongside the likes of Violent Soho, The Smith Street Band, Bodyjar and Title Fight, as well as appearances at Falls Festival and Poison City Weekender.
