Driving South – ‘Dog Trap Road’

Hailing from Sydney, Driving South has released the sensational EP ‘Dog Trap Road’, in March 2022. It is an alternative-country release that will have you reaching for the repeat button!

The title track opens the EP to a dark and brooding full band song. We adore the main guitar riff that anchors the track and provides the solid foundations for the rest of the instrumentation to grow from. In addition, the vocal performance is filled with character and charm.

‘Heart and Hands’ is a standout song with upbeat instrumentation and warm and welcoming vocals. The jangly guitars inject vivid colour into the song.

Furthermore, ‘Back To You’ is lyrically relatable and resonates with the audience. Finally, ‘Two’ closes the release and leaves the listener wanting more!


‘Dog Trap Road’ was recorded in Sydney at Everland Studios. It has been sensationally engineered and mixed by Ben Worsey and finally mastered by Cefe Flynn. Together, the team have created a piece of art that sets Driving South as a band to watch in 2022.


Driving South say about this latest EP, “The aim of the EP was a live sound with just guitar, bass and drums. The aim was to produce a bunch of songs that had space and even some imperfections that reflect the way we play live.” they continue, “The band wanted a snapshot of how their songs sounded after a long period without gigs during Covid, but where they worked on around 16 songs, focusing on the five that made it to the EP.”

Band Members

Driving South comprises of band members Jürgen Joarder – guitar and vocals, Shannon Lewis – drums and vocals, and Cam McWilliams – bass and backing vocals. They are all excellent musicians in their respective fields, but when they come together, magic happens!
