Petrol Records, the label founded by long-time INXS manager Chris Murphy, has today announced the signing of Aussie teen trio The Buckleys, who Murphy has coined as "the superstars of the future".
The Byron Bay-founded group are the first act to be signed by Petrol since Universal Music Group bought a 50% share of the label in 2016.
“After meeting The Buckleys I was compelled to not only sign them, but to find a unique, creative space for them," Murphy said.
"The Buckleys are the superstars of the future and alongside stablemates, INXS, they are primed for success."
The band's debut single, Daydream. has already garnered huge attention having been produced by Chad Carlson, who was the engineer for Taylor Swift’s first four albums. Meanwhile, the music video is directed by actor Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean); check it out above.
The Buckleys are expected to announce tour dates in support of the single soon.
