Brisbane’s Hey Geronimo have had a killer year 2014, and it’s clear that they’re only just getting started on their musical journey. Set to kick off a mini tour this week in support of their latest single Finale.
Their original blend of indie-pop has seen them receive national radio play, taking the stage at Fat As Butter, BDO, Homebake, Peats Ridge and more, and they’ve opened for the likes of Deep Sea Arcade, Pluto Jonze and (yes, the 90s group) Presidents of the USA.
