Sydney band Bellwether are purveyors of the most satisfyingly vibrant brand of indie rock – tinged with a quiet/loud ethos and mountain range high melodies. In their news ingle ‘Charade’, layered vocals provide a melodious sheen across the syncopated thundering rhythm section and stabbing guitars.

At the very heart of rock’n’roll must lurk the innate desire for the smell of the greasepaint and the glare of the floodlights: theatrics must surely form the very DNA of a good band. Wolf & Chain are proving themselves to be the most entertaining and adept purveyors of a whomping style of glam excess, and it …

In a Backseat Mafia exclusive, we are excited to bring you the latest single Adored by longing. Originally an internet project, the artist hit an incredible 100,000+ Soundcloud streams worldwide from followers who felt connected to his unique sound.

INSPIRING stories have been hard to find in recent times, so hopefully it will sound refreshing that a project from a South Korean bedroom artist has risen to global attention, on par with Lana Del Rey or Nick Cave’s latest releases. It’s probably better not to even think about what the pandemic has done to …

Massachusetts-born rapper and singer Joe Mulherin (professionally known as nothing,nowhere.) opens a new chapter with Trauma Factory, his fourth studio album and second for Fueled by Ramen.

THE NEW album from Australian duo Will Canning and Remy Veselis, aka Death Bells, is a fusion of post-punk and emo-infused rock. The band has become a more concrete two-person pairing since its formation in 2015, culminating in the twosome making the bold move to up sticks from Sydney, Australia, and transfer 7000 miles to …
