Melbourne born and bred but now relocated to London, the magnificent trio HighSchool are back with a fabulous new single ‘Only A Dream’ – a dark brooding slow burning fuse that ignites with a pop fervour into a jangling motorik beat that sets the pulse racing. There’s no doubting the antipodean petri dish that has …

Mannequin Death Squad have finally released their debut album after a string of blistering singles (all of which appear on the album) being released over the past few years in the run-up to the long-awaited release of this gem of a long-player. The album was recorded over that time at a number of different studios, …

With a powerful voice filled with a ineluctable power that would light up an entire universe, we are very proud to premiere the new single ‘Bloom’ from Melbourne singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bella Deer. With a pulse quickening cyclical piano thrum that drives the song forward like an out of control billy cart with no …

We are very pleased to premiere the new single ‘Sunk’ from crinkly topped Naarm/Melbourne trio My Giddy Aunt. This is a gloriously melodic traipse through an indie pop paradise with its jangly sounds, effervescent bounce and touch of whimsy. Vocally reminiscent of something by the legendary The The or James, there is nonetheless an antipodean …

We here at Backseat Mafia have been long time fans of Melbourne-based chanteuse Gena Rose Bruce with her smoky, sultry voice and reverb-inflected laconic style that comes across as a melange of Mazzy Star and P.J. Harvey: a femme fatale with a steely spine cloaked in luscious velvet and a smoldering style. Her debut album …

Essendon Airport have a permanent place in the annals of the Australian indie music scene from the late seventies with their innovative electronic sonic canvases – founding members consisted of Robert Goodge on guitar and David Chesworth on Wurlitzer electric piano, along with a home-made drum machine bought from the Trading Post. Goodge went on to …

Melbourne’s Delivery have dropped off a brilliant catchy riff-riven track for our consumption that combines a Trio-like Casio-infused effervescent beat with a punky attitude-filled bluster. ‘Baader Meinhoff’ swings like a barnyard door in a hurricane and is imbued with a cathartic sense of fun – compounded by the vibrant video by James Devlin and Sam …

The Same Same consist of two giants in the indie music scene in Australia: multi instrumentalists Philippa Nihill from the Underground Lovers/GB3 and Lisa Gibbs from USER/GB3, and their weapons of choice are keys, synths and vocals wielded with haunting finesse and subtlety. The Same Same have just announced the release of an album of …

The three band members of CLAMM

On August Bank Holiday Monday Melbourne punks CLAMM played at Glasgow’s basement venue The Flying Duck. They released their excellent second album CARE earlier this month, and to be perfectly frank this reviewer was buzzing to be seeing CLAMM live. Patience is a virtue, however and first onstage was local band Velvet. What immediately struck …

We are pleased to premiere the video for the track ‘Ride’ from Melbourne band INSTYNKT. ‘Ride’ is a powerful guitar-driven track that resonates with a pop sensibility while setting a blistering pace. At heart is the kind of pure rock’n’roll filled with blood sweat and tears that used to form the mainstay of Australian pub …
