OneWave will return to North Mollymook Beach on Friday, March 24 to ‘Free the Funk’, with The Escalators to release their latest single, written for OneWave and mental health awareness.

The song titled One Wave (Free the Funk) has its own coastal vibe, forming the perfect opportunity for the band to come together said guitarist, songwriter and producer Lachlan Mackenzie.

“As with everyone in the community we have all had our contact with mental health issues, either with ourselves, friends or family,” he said.

“Over the last couple of years there has been some serious events which has shaken the community.”
