Labor ad for live music

This image of some cool young people playing rock music has been doing the rounds as part of Labor’s social media campaigning. So who is the band? The blonde woman in the background holding a mic is Erinn Swan, the current Head of Digital at the Australian Labor Party and daughter of Wayne. The image was taken at a video clip shoot for her former band The Hangout from a few years ago. It’s all above board — her former bandmates in the picture gave their permission for the Labor Party to use the pic.
