Originally from New Zealand, Binder now lives in Perth and he has somehow combined elements of the spark of creativity from both places into an impressive body …

Melbourne’s Children Collide‘s new single ‘Uh Oh’ is a slamming, dynamic piece of pounding rock’n’roll with its insistent rhythms and cool and louche vocals. All inflected with a psychedelic fugue.

Bandicoot have an attitude and an impeccable sense of theatre and drama that make their releases utterly cathartic and completely mesmerising. We premiered the video for their last single ‘Fuzzy’ – seductive with all the delicacy of a velvet coated sledgehammer – and the band has released a follow up single ‘Worried Blues’: another blast …

We are very honoured to premiere a new video from Sydney’s Jessica, for the track ‘Apparition’. Last year we reviewed the quite frankly astonishing debut album from her called ‘The Space Between’ in which we wrote it was: …impossibly beautiful – quiet, reflecting vignettes filled with a haunting sadness and an aura that could only …

The smooth and indelible melodies that feature in Adelaide’s Atlas Genius‘ single ‘Elegant Stranger’ has a shimmering eighties feel: an anthemic chorus and a bubbling undertow serving the layered harmonies.

‘Defence Mechanisms’, the powerful EP by Sydney band Second Idol, is a solid, grounded guitar-driven indie rock’n’roll gem filled with memorable riffs, a hard unapologetic rough hewn edge and scintillating melodies that reach for the sky.
