There is an unsettling restless edge to the new single ‘Matters’ from Perth’s Methyl Ethel that is wrapped in the most danceable and funky faux fur cloak. With soaring, gliding vocals that evoke The Jackson 5 in the chorus and a hyperactive rhythm section and blistering synth that bubbles and squeaks, this is something very …

Gliding out of the world’s most remote city, Perth, duo The Money War (Carmen and Dylan Ollivierre)  have today released the ethereal and dreamy track ‘Miles Away’. This is a coasting, sparkling and very delicious slice of melancholy, punctuated by the most languid and evocative breathy saxophones and subtle horns, and gilded by reflective, immersive …

Rising Perth debutantes Onslow (duo Sean Harmanis and Scott Kay) have a remarkable breadth in their music: songs that range from jingle jangle melodic delicacy to full-throated metal screaming within seconds, and within one song. The result is something that is quite extraordinary: a hard to define genre that has an anthemic infrastructure with thundering …

Perth’s Rinehearts have delivered a perfectly formed package of power pop jangle in their new single ‘One Thing One Time’. Combining a chiming guitar attack with heavenly harmonies and a punchy melody, the vocals have a little grit, a little emotion, all forming the sort of charming sixties-flavoured joy one needs to brighten the skies. …

Western Australian native Leigh Gardiner – working under the name Chuditch – has an exquisite ear for shimmering and dramatic melodies that form perfect danceable pop songs with a gritty edge. His magnificent track ‘Cue The Violins’ has an insistent driving roll that tip-toes its way forward with a delicate step yet at a monstrous …

Laced with an unashamed Australian accented laid back and droll delivery, the track seethes with a sort of disinterested teenage grumpiness, but in a self-deprecatory and ultimately romantic way. Singer/songwriter Clancy Davidson says of …

There is a delicious expansiveness about Damien Binder‘s work – he is an uniquely antipodean troubadour whose songs sparkle like the bright stars over the great southern land. Originally from New Zealand, Binder now lives in Perth and he has somehow combined elements of the spark of creativity from both places into an impressive body …

Australian five-piece Mt. Mountain released their fourth LP last week, Centre, via London’s Fuzz Club Records. Hailing from Perth they delve into sprawling, motorik psychedelic rock sound that journeys between tranquil, drone-like meditations and raucous, full-throttle wig-outs that’ll blow your mind as much as your speakers. Taking cues from Krautrock pioneers like Neu! and Can …

We are honoured to premiere the new single ‘Here It Is’ from New Zealand-born Western Australian resident Damien Binder which is out on Friday, 5 February 2021. Binder began his musical life in nineties NZ band Second Child before moving west to Australia – Perth to be precise – and releasing, to date, four solo …

Aborted Tortoise hail from Perth, Australia and are set to release a brand EP out into the world of Punk music. It’s a world that is never a lonely place, a place that is filled with so much diversity, but also a place so many bands can get lost in – trying to fit in rather …
