Stimpies

Ambassadors of surf-punk, hailing from all corners of Naarm/Melb.

Stimpies’ music and aesthetic embodies an exploration of the Australian lifestyle, the burn of the seatbelt getting into your car in 45 degree weather, the refreshing and repetitious comfort of wave after wave at the beach.

We’re a four-piece surf-punk band making shit house noise, made up of drummer and backing vocalist Ethan Robins, bassist Bec Wigg, lead guitar and lead vocalist Ned McKenna and guitarist Xavier Ambrosius.

We decided to start the band in early 2019, releasing our self-titled EP by December of the same year, along with a sold out launch at Wrangler Studios. Come January 2020, we played Exude Group’s own U:Time Festival and a bushfire benefit concert at The Gasometer Upstairs with local legends The Grogans, following that with a Pure Nowhere show with The Belair Lip Bombs and Velvet Bloom. We are super grateful for some massive opportunities performing with some of our favourite bands, such as Kingswood in late 2021, The Vanns in early 2022, and two massive sold-out shows with Skegss at Torquay Hotel and two with The Grogans capping off the year down at HABA in Rye.


Our latest single, never stay the same.’ released on Thursday 20th October, recorded at Singing Bird Studio and mixed by the wonderful Michael Badger. This is our favourite track to date, with a laid-back yet energetic sound; perfect for a melancholy summer mood by the beach.
