False Peak records


Brisbane’s Terra Pines take no prisoners in their brutal aural assault of a track, ‘Downbeat’. This is a thunderous insistent fuzzy rumble that rolls forward with intensity and purpose. And yet underneath the fuzz and the rumble, the melodies are sweet and yearning, a delicious amalgam of shoegaze and dream pop that captivates while clearing …

As part of our irregular series on the important and often silent figures behind the music scenes – the record labels, promoters and managers – we are today having a chat with venerable Brisbane figure Remy Boccalatte of the shining star that is False Peak Records. We here at Backseat Mafia have covered many bands …

Last month we premiered the fantastic new single ‘Les Mauvais Jours’ from Czech-based French duo Overland Inn following their signing to the brilliant Brisbane label False Peak Records. Overland Inn have now released the title track to their forthcoming album ‘Proxima’ and it’s another exquisite slice of electronica pie, augmented by the lush vocals sung in …

French duo Overland Inn, purveyors of the sweetest electric dream pop laced with ethereal bubbling textures, have announced their signing to the enigmatic Brisbane label False Peak Records and will be releasing new material soon in the way of an album entitled ‘Proxima’. Overland Inn have no boundaries, physical or aural. They are now based …

We are very honoured to premiere the title track of the new EP ‘Get Heat’ from Brisbane artist/songwriter/producer extraordinaire David Rylands, out through that purveyor of good taste, False Peak Records, on Sunday, 20 August 2021.

The track surges and recedes and flows with a sparkle and vivacity: scaling guitars that sweep over the wash of percussion and strings: distance feedback squalls like seabirds in flight and there is a magnificent, pulse …

Here at Backseat Mafia, we have been lauding the dream pop aural landscapes Graywave has created through a series of singles released over the past year. Graywave – the nom de plume of West Midland’s multi-instrumentalist Jess Webberley – has now released an EP entitled ‘Planetary Shift’ through the boutique Brisbane label False Peak Records, …

WE’VE fallen pretty damn hard for Graywave, the self-styled “dreampop from the West Midz” project of Jess Webberley, on a couple of occasions in recent times; there was her previous single “Before”, from the beginning of the year, which we noted as being “full of that thrill and dusky elegance you get from the Cocteau …

We are very pleased to premiere the opening track to Brisbane band We Set Sail‘s forthcoming third album ‘Ritual and Ceremony’. And it’s a blinder. ‘The Valium Phase’ is an explosive, passionate blast to the ears – stabbing guitars and pounding rhythms with vocals that bleed emotion and wrench the heart. This track has a …

JUST before Christmas, Backseat Mafia had the absolute privilege of premiering “Like Heaven”, a brilliant surge of dream pop haze and melody from Graywave, the musical project of the West Midlands’ Jess Webberley. We’ll let you into a little secret: she’s a bit ace. Jess is shaping for the release of Graywave’s debut EP, Planetary …
