‘Come So Far’ is an immersive and epic debut from Melbourne’s Oceans (the moniker of Thomas Lee): four tracks that shimmer and sparkle with an iron spine and a dreamy disposition. Lee says of the EP: This is my debut EP recorded for my solo project Oceans. It encapsulates the last 5-7 years of my …

Charmingly quirky, Ballarat-based indie-pop duo Odd Tastes make an exciting return to the scene with latest single ‘IT’S ALRIGHT’ – an effervescent delight of a track, produced and mixed by group member Will Stephens. Featuring stylised, sparkling vocals, bubbling electronics and melodic guitar, the song skips along like a light breeze on a sunny day. …

This is, for me, one of the stand out singles of the …

Backseat Mafia were highly impressed by Melburnian native Eilish Gilligan‘s single “Creature of Habit” late last year – a haunting, sparse piece of electronica that highlighted Gilligan’s extraordinary vocals. Gilligan is back with S.M.F.Y., which, almost impossibly, ups the ante. Instrumentally this is a far more complex dance-orientated piece with synth riffs and a driving …

Be Charlotte on stage at Attic at The Garage in Glasgow, February 2017

Half way through their short tour of Scotland, Be Charlotte enthral a packed Attic with a set of stunningly artistic and irresistibly catchy anthems. As we’re waiting for Be Charlotte to take to the stage, I’m told by a fellow photographer that I should prepare myself for something special and when the band – made …
