In my humble opinion, Johnny Hunter, now signed to Cooking Vinyl Australia, are one of the most exciting bands in Australia at the moment – one we have been following for a while at Backseat Mafia with intense interest and satisfaction as they go from strength to strength. They project a tough and studied demeanour …

The KVB are back with a new album, Unity, which was released recently via Invada Records. Movement – and lack of movement – is a crucial backdrop to the latest album from the audio-visual duo of Wood and Kat Day. The seeds of the album were sown in demo form in Spain, shortly followed by …

Mexican five-piece Sei Still return with their second album El Refugio, out today on Fuzz Club Records. The new album follows their self-titled debut released in April 2020, which is already on its second vinyl pressing after selling out extremely quick first time around. The band was born when they decided to take a random trip …

‘Best In Town’, the new single from Melbourne outfit Hooper Crescent, is a thoroughly satisfying slice of post punk joy – angular fuzzy instrumentation with blushes of saxophone and a delightful swaggering poise and attitude. The lilting pace and thundering bass under the surface make for a vibrant dynamism, with the dissociated vocals and choruses …

The eternally enigmatic Thrillhouse have returned to the fray with another stylistic and cool track ‘It’ll Be Alright In The End’ and, as a shocking addendum, news that they will be releasing a full EP entitled ‘Wedding Disco’. The Brighton band have thrilled with a series of utterly brilliant singles – nine or so – …

An indelible melody and anthemic chorus are delivered across a jangling dark synth/guitar filigree with a sparse evocative bass spine. This is an …

Tonight at Rough Trade, non profit organisation Rock Against Racism Nottingham are hosting London’s Girls In Synthesis. Formed in 2016, they have acquired somewhat of a cult following, and with good reason. If you’re looking for a sound that’s somewhere between something you know really well, and something you’ve never heard before, you don’t have …

I’ve waxed lyrical about the genius that is Johnny Hunter – one of the most exciting acts in the world at the moment. Their glam theatrical approach is mesmerising and exciting and their songwriting recalls the best of post punk movement with sonorous vocals, icy, edgy guitars and anthemic choruses. Jonny Hunter have just released …
