“High impact and in your face… full of catchy melodic beauties” – Rock N Load

A four-headed Irish-Australian outfit hailing from Sydney’s Inner West, Flickertail (formerly The Bitter Sweethearts) play guitar-fuelled rock’n roll exactly the way it’s supposed to be played. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Thin Lizzy, The Darkness, and Oasis, the band honed their sound in the garages and booze dens of Sydney before hitting the road in 2015 to showcase their unique sound at every pub, club and backyard along Australia’s eastern coast.
Since their inception, the band have played relentlessly and are reaping the rewards. 2014’s single The End received airplay on Triple M and regional radio throughout New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, whilst Guinness is Thicker than Blood has been played everywhere from Bendigo to Brisbane. The tail end of 2015 saw the band landing coveted opening slots with Aussie rock heroes Buffalo and Sarah McLeod on top of endless sweaty shows with local legends Black Aces, The Lockhearts, and Foreign Kings. 2016 saw them take their infamous zero-bullshit live show on the road once more, supporting the likes of The Casanovas and US juggernaut The Supersuckers.
