Salarymen command attention from any crowd with compelling songwriting, carefully crafted visuals and enthralling live performances. The Sydney-based band have developed a solid reputation for producing charming indie cuts, combining a sonically-rich mixture of rock, psych, and dream pop. Part of their unique appeal lies in their vocal dynamics, which feature two distinct, yet complementary female and male voices working together in harmony.


Bursting onto the scene in late 2019, Salarymen have become a formidable force in the Australian indie scene. Following the success of their debut EP ‘Scene Change’ in 2021, they returned in 2022 with their sophomore EP ‘Head in the Sand’, which received praise from all corners of the music industry. The EP landed them a spot at SXSW Austin 2023, as well as the inaugural SXSW Sydney festival, and Lost Paradise, one of Australia’s biggest NYE festivals.


They’ve earned multiple triple j premieres, play on BBC6, Radio X, KEXP, regular spots on local / international Spotify playlists and Apple Music NMD, features on NME, Clash, Pilerats and Life Without Andy, rotation on FBi, 2SER and SYN and much more. They’ve also sold out headline shows, played to enamoured crowds on their debut Japan tour, and landed the national tour support for Royel Otis. Aside from this, they’ve shared stages with the likes of The Lazy Eyes, Pacific Avenue, Eliza & The Delusionals, The Vanns, and been handpicked by The Jungle Giants as winners of the Smirnoff Ads for Artists competition.


Salarymen’s extended body of work showcases a level of depth and song writing prowess that is hard to ignore. Hot off the back of their EP tour in Japan and Australia, and their trip to SXSW Austin, the band is continuing their winning streak in 2024 with their debut UK and Europe tour, to be announced soon.
