Australians are often misrepresented as a rag-tag cast of misanthropes, criminals and drunks. These cultural assumptions might have held some factual foundations during the nation's formative years, but as Australia has proven itself to be a forthright nation intent on promoting the well being of its citizens, these erst labels are unheeded and rather insulting. One group that seems to perfectly encapsulate Australia's forward-thinking 21st century cultural aesthetic is Sydney-based indie rock band The Holidays. By playing a markedly modern style of pop-friendly music with defined harmonies, all four members in the group are helping redefine how individuals living outside Australia perceive the land down under. The band released its debut LP, Post Paradise, and the album garnered positive reviews from many prominent Australian music publications.
