A popular Perth band that formed only three years ago will make their much-anticipated return to Broome this month and promise a very energetic show.

Brufield have made a name for themselves in the Kimberley town after captivating crowds with two huge performances since the creation of their band in 2014 and will make their return at Divers Beach Bar on June 17.

The high-energy pop/rock band, who describe themselves as the love child of No Doubt and the Cranberries, have performed on some of the nation’s biggest stages, including at Big Day Out and Bluesfest, as well as touring Australia and the UK. But their achievements do not end there.

Brufield made a huge impression at The Beaufort Street Festival in Perth two years ago and have enjoyed some of the smaller stages of The Kinetic Dreaming Festival, Midlandia Locale and Mandurah Crab Fest.

Despite this impressive list of accomplishments, lead singer Lisa Caulfield, 35, said some of the band’s best memories were of right here in Broome.

“This will be the third time that we travel to Broome,” she said.

“It is one of the most beautiful places that we have ever played.

“We love the people and that is what makes the place for us.

“It also helps that Broome have some beautiful beaches and fun things for us to do when we aren’t performing.

“Last year was a full house and absolutely one of our favourite shows that we have ever played.

“Broome knows how to bring the party hard.”

In the past 12 months, the band have released three singles, signed a publishing deal and toured internationally, but with their run of shows around WA and the recording and release of another single coming up, Brufield are showing no signs of slowing down.

“We like to play as often as we can to keep our followers fresh and up to date with our music and hopefully gain some new followers along the way,” Caulfield said. The lead singer, and occasional guitarist, encourages residents to head to Divers to see her and band members Andy Brunn, Chris Brine, Graham Temby and Skye Horton deliver what is hoped to be one of their best performances yet.

“We like to party and we know for a fact that Broome likes to party,” she said.

“It’s a match made in heaven.

“The Divers Tavern is an awesome venue with a great stage and an amazing sound.

“We’re all about the audience and Broome has the best vibes of anywhere we have played.”

Brufield have a hectic schedule around WA over the next coming months, so catch them while you can at Divers on June 17.
