Semantics is a 4-piece Australian post-punk band from Southeast Queensland / Meanjin. Keeping in line with punk-rock philosophy, Semantics spares no effort in connecting with their listeners on a personal level both on and off the stage to remind fans that it’s ‘alright if you’re not alright’. Since their pivotal stand-alone single “Cemeteries” debuted on Triple J in May of 2018, Semantics has been hard at work refining their craft to match their newfound direction.
In 2019, things started to progress for the band when Triple J gave the group a spot on the Triple J Unearthed Stage at Big Sound, leading their single “Drunk” to be picked up by radio stations and streaming sites. Currently, the song sits at nearly 800k Spotify streams.
With 2 EPs and a multitude of singles under their belt and a completed sold-out tour with Sly Withers and Columbus, the Brisbane quartet released their next single “Sleep At Night” in July of 2021, and embarked on an Australian tour including dates in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. The Brisbane quartet is set to release their debut album Paint Me Blue on May 20, 2022 via SideOneDummy Records.
Semantics is Callum Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Gerard (vocals, guitar), Madi (bass), and Mitch (drums).
