New Zealand-born brothers Zech Walters (guitar/vocals) and Eze Walters (guitar/vocals) struck up a friendship with Bowen Purcell (drums) after moving to Australia. In search of adventure, the three traveled around the country busking, before eventually settling in Melbourne. Woodlock’s international profile kicked off with headline tours through the Philippines, China, and Canada off the back of standout single “Something Broke That Day.” Simultaneously, the title track of their Sirens EP reached iTunes Top 50 charts and Top 10 spots on Spotify’s viral charts globally. Now signed to Nettwerk Records, the trio has recently released their debut album The Future of An End. They worked with producers Hayden Calnin and Jackson Barclay (Vera Blue, Winterbourne, Timberwolf) on the new music – a dynamic mix of organic, acoustic elements and electronic flourishes – is a breathtakingly candid collection of songs about heartbreak, trauma and hope.
