We are very pleased to premiere the video for the track ‘The Fault Was Lain There Too’ from Australian-born Berlin resident, the multi-Instrumentalist and songwriter Joshua Murphy. The track is a dark gothic tale with a velvet soft delivery and a haunting refrain. Like compatriot Nick Cave, the tone is that of a southern preacher, …

We are very honoured to premiere the new video for the track ‘My Own Eyes’ by Hamburg artist Seasurfer. Last year’s album ‘Zombies‘ caught our attention for its mélange of goth-tinged electronica and dream pop, and Seasurfer – essentially now the solo work of Dirk Knight – is back with an EP entitled ‘Jump To …

‘Hell on Bent Street’, title track for Georgia Knight‘s forthcoming EP, is a prowling track that ebbs and flows with a visceral cutting edge, teetering on the brink of a dark chasm. The guitars clatter with an ominous intent over the driving rhythms, and Knight’s vocals are wrought with a resolute despair, from a whisper …

With psychedelic-inflected vocals, nuanced and louche, the ghostly apparition that is Tom Crandles’s musical project Prudence has just released ‘Negatives’. It is a gothic-flavoured collection that reflects the period of turmoil over the last few years, bleeding through every pore, and yet seems to offer a glimpse of hope in the end. Opening track ‘Introduction’ …

The single ‘Fear Of The Neglect’ from Italian group Ostara’s Bless has a luscious, layered industrial stomp with a barbed-wire spine and a dark ominous insistent thrum. We are honoured to be able to premiere today the rich and beautiful video for the track that comes off the band’s epic ‘Masculine/Feminine’ double album. The track’s …

In her new single ‘Rot’, Sydney artist Julienne Harvey‘s soaring vocals seem aged in a whiskey-soaked barrel, and delivered with added melancholia in some darkened cavern in the early hours of the morning after a night of glorious excess. Influenced by the like of Radiohead and Portishead, it is rather incredible that at the time …

Having signed to UK’s Dalliance Recordings, Melbourne trio HighSchool have announced the release of their debut EP due out in October 2021. And to lure us in, the visceral, sinewy goth-tinged single ‘Sirens’ has been released. ‘Sirens’ promises great things to come: it is a bleak post-punk muscular track that is enigmatic and bold: an …

French trio Versari produce compelling, dark and gothic sonic landscapes that are elegant and cool. We reviewed their single ‘Plus de Tristesse’ last year from the album ‘Sous le peaux’, calling it gloriously imperious and statuesque and we are very honoured to premiere their new EP Brûle, which consists of an edited version of the …

This is the debut recording with legendary classic rock synth master Alan St Jon in the lineup. St Jon is an original and current member of classic rock act Billy Squier. He was …
