While making shoes for you is what prompts our journeys abroad others are driven by their own obsessions to travel. This summer our “Have Love, Will Travel” campaign shares the stories of some of our more nomadic friends including one of our favourite up-and-coming bands, The Ruminaters, from Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
The Ruminaters are Pencil, Mossop, Jarleffe and Ted. The boys describe their sound as “beatnik barnyard hillbilly swamp rock” but you’d get a better idea of their style if you looked at their influences that include The White Stripes, The Clash, The Strokes and The Libertines.
The Ruminaters are fast gaining a reputation for their high-energy live sets and have just completed a tour taking their indie rock racket up and down Australia’s east coast. Despite the fact these adventures often leave the band penniless, and even in debt, the memories the boys bank on the way make it worthwhile.
The Ruminaters favourite's from the Urge 'Have Love, Will Travel Summer 2013 Collection' include Sultan, Leroy and Harlem.
