Influenced by pop cultural icons such as Kubrick, Bukowski, Vanda/Young, Strummer/Jones, Hairpin unpicks the fabric of the life lived, with songs ranging from pop noir to a beat poetry instrumental, crooner ballads to rock anthems, musing on loyalty, futurism, wealth and a little death.

Long Bio

Hairpin Culvert - ‘Hairpin’ - is singer/songwriter Brendan Flynn based in Sydney, Australia.

While Hairpin is no debutante to the Australian independent music scene, the boyish voice, quirky name and unself-conscious creativity suggest a brash newcomer.

Influenced by pop cultural icons such as Kubrick, Bukowski, Vanda/Young, Strummer/Jones, Hairpin unpicks the fabric of the life lived, with songs ranging from pop noir to a beat poetry instrumental, crooner ballads to rock anthems, musing on loyalty, futurism, wealth and a little death.

Hitting the ground running with his debut LP in 2018,” Everyone Gets Everything He Wants”, (Laneway Music), Hairpin has been turning people onto his unique musical vision, playing gigs along the east coast of Australia with his stellar 4-pce band. 

Oz music legend Stuart Coupe handpicked Hairpin’s moody re-work of the Only Ones’ ‘Another Girl Another Planet’ for his Dirt Music program on Sydney’s 2SER - ‘Cool album cover, great songs and a ripper reworking of “Another Girl Another Planet” by the Only Ones…. Hairpin Culvert is on his way.’

Hairpin Culvert has recently formed an artist collective in ‘Jetpack Productions’ recording and producing a series of single releases and accompanying videos.  The Jetpack cohorts are excited to announce the first of these collaborations,  ‘Test Pattern’, available now for download and streaming on all digital platforms through Laneway music.
