Good Heavens is an Australian indie rock band. Formed in 2011, the group consists of singer Sarah Kelly, from The Red Sun Band, and ex-Wolfmother musicians Chris Ross (on bass and keyboard) and Myles Heskett (drums), who also played with The Slew.[1] The trio's first album, Strange Dreams, was released under the Rice Is Nice label in August, 2012.[2]


After the breakup of Kelly's previous band, The Red Sun Band, Kelly continued to write music, and approached Sydney indie label Rice is Nice about recording and releasing a new album. The label recommended working with Myles Heskett, who in turn recommended Chris Ross.[1] (Since departing from Wolfmother, Heskett and Ross had recorded as The Slew with Kid Koala, but were between projects at the time).[3] Their first single, It’s Not Easy Being Mean, was released in July, 2012, a year after the band was formed, and their first album, Strange Dreams, came out in August that year.[4][3]
