Melbourne trio The Grogans are having a lot of fun with their collective tongues planted firmly in their cheeks. Evidence for the prosecution: their new single ‘Just a Kid’ is just over two minutes of swampy fun with shouty choruses, reverb drenched surf-inflected guitars and a pounding rhythm section. It careens along like a cartoon …

‘Darts in the Dark’ is a bright and bubbling track that shines and radiates joy, yet a thread of melancholy gives it a bittersweet edge both in the lyrics and Australian singer Rachael Fahim‘s delicate yearning vocals. We are pleased to be able to provide an exclusive look at the video accompanying this piece of …

The Terrifying Lows is the work of Melbourne-based musician and Gamilaroi artist Tyler Millott, and his new self-titled album is a sparkling collection of jewels: finely tuned pop vignettes that have a dark undercurrent beneath the shining melodies. To add to the wonder, Millott took full control of the creativity – writing, recording and producing. As …

We are pleased to provide an exclusive listen to the new single from newcomers Marty K and the Electric Hurricanes. ‘Rattle Snakes & Bones’ is an electronic blast – a steady moving rumble that travels resolutely on a carriage of crunchy guitars roaming wildly and freely across the sonic landscape, complete with squalling solos, the …

We are honoured to premiere the new single ‘Wild Night’ from Blue Mountains resident Lewis Goldmark, the second single from his forthcoming debut album due early in 2022 via Broken Stone Records/Remote Control Records.

It is a visceral, slamming track imbued with anger and frustration: a wall …

We are honoured to premiere the new video from Sydney band Ian T. McKelvey and the Midnight Tangos, created for the languid and slow burning track that is ‘Who I Was’. ‘Who I Was’ simmers with a deep intensity – crisp guitars feature and a distant haunting saxophone refrain adds an indelible atmosphere while singer …

‘Consider Me Gone’, the new track from Gold Coast musician Chloe Styler, is a gorgeously haunting pop classic with a driving, insistent undercurrent and a vaulting and celestial chorus. Styler says of the track: It’s the perfect blend of every influence of mine, from early 2000s punk pop to 80s pop to a more contemporary …

If ever the enigma and dynamism of Ron S Peno was evident, it is in the latest video for the Ron S Peno and the Superstitions track ‘The Strangest Feeling’. I almost feel transported back to the days of the Mosman Hotel watching Died Pretty in all their dark glory where Peno prowled like a …
