The Achilles brought TEDxBrisbane 2017 to a close with their upbeat, indie-folk-rock sound. Comprised of four siblings, Megan, Joel, Tom and Dan Achilles, the band performed their tunes “Matches” and “The Water”. The Achilles comprises of four kin – Megan (guitar & vocals), Joel (mandolin &bass), Tom (drums & ukulele) and Dan (trumpet & keys). Their blend of indie, folk and alt-rock creates a dynamic and addictive sound.
Their 2016 debut self-titled EP was a raw, real recording intended to reflect their energetic live performances.
The Achilles have just released their shimmery new single ‘Matches’. Recorded by Chris Collins of Tigertown, Matches gives a nod to the band’s early acoustic roots but also incorporates ambient space, power and beat. The Achilles have a diverse arrangement and energy that always lights up the venue.
