So what is The Idea of North? In short, a quintet of musicians, serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously. With two ARIA awards under their collective belt, a significant local and international fan base, and a wonderful back-catalogue of over 14 albums, it would seem that despite their uniqueness, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends. You may have heard and enjoyed the recordings, but the best stuff actually happens live and can’t be truly felt as ones and zeros, no matter how fast your internet connection is.
