Back to All Events


Murdena are Hugh and Annie-Rose Maloney along with their exceptional bandmates Ivan Blacket, Daniel Mckoy and Mitch Rice. The Melbourne based band creatively sculpt each of their songs which unpick life, love and longing. Their influences are so wide and varied it can be difficult to place their unique sound into a single genre, so they decide to call the sound they make an ‘Australiana take on Americana’.


After selling out their first two EP shows in their hometown of Melbourne, and taking honours at Tamworth's battle of the bands in 2013, the group travelled to the edge of Tasmania's wilderness to craft their debut album, Freeway.

 Murdena’s latest single Black Coloured Tears, is the first single from their yet to be released debut album. The 10 track album was recorded ‘live and off-the-grid’ and sounds as wholesome and earthy as the forest cabin it was laid down in.
