Melbourne’s magnificent Underground Lovers have released a new video for the song “Every Sign” off last year’s epic album “Staring at you, Staring at me” (reviewed here). This is in anticipation of a mainland capital city Australian tour in March – their biggest tour in a while (sadly Hobart is left out). “Every Sign” is …

Melbourne’s Eilish Gilligan could not be accused of being prolific, but what she does release is stunning and all the more valuable for its scarcity. Her new release, “Creature of Habit” is out now and it is a haunting, beautiful song. Melancholic, electronic indie pop just begins to pin its style down, and yet it …

In Australia, the term ‘Gold Class’ is synonymous with an upmarket cinema brand where you can recline in a smaller theatre and be fed morsels as you watch the movie.

Melbourne psych outfit Beaches release a new single ‘Void’, from a forthcoming double album Second of Spring in September.

Australian singer songwriter Bel has revealed a new video to accompany her debut single, which drops this Friday, 19th August. The Melbourne 20 year old describes the track, Melancholia, as providing “an introspective depiction of what it’s like to be inside my head. Lyrically, it’s rich in raw emotion and personal truth. Our minds can …

Melbourne’s Cool Sounds live up to their namesake. Imagine an alternate universe where Mac Demarco, My Morning Jacket, and a less Beach Boys-centric Dent May formed an indie rock Voltron and put out an album that while never truly rocked it floated along nicely on a cloud of jangly melancholy. That’s what Cool Sounds does …

If you liked Melvista, Wesley Fuller’s singalong, clap along indie rock belter, then it’s not going to take much for you to fall for follow up Runaway Renee, taken from his forthcoming debut EP, due out on the 1965 imprint. Fuller himself explains the ideas behind the song as “The song came about one hot, …

Sometimes you hear something that makes you stop. That sweeps over you with its emotion. Like you know those songs that used to be on Grey’s Anatomy when something went wrong, (cue held camera shots and arty cutaways), well even more emotional than that. Like, real. Well, Australian composer and musician Luke Howard did that …
