27 Listicle Series: SHIVA AND THE HAZARDS

Shiva and The Hazards colour low res

In the physical world, Shiva and the Hazards were formed in Melbourne Australia earlier this decade by Douglas Hind and Leigh Baines. The pair then relocated to the U.K.  the land of their previous colonial occupiers, full of ambition and naivety.

Following their return to Melbourne, Shiva and the Hazards are planning to finish what they started. The band are now joined by Baines’ former collaborator, singer- songwriter and guitarist Jet O’Rourke (The Gear), to propel the release of their first collection of music, aptly titled, ‘Future Cult Classics

With the new music video East India Empress having a 70s vintage feel we asked the band to tell us what they loved the 70s and what they would bring back.
