Great Australian Bank live up to the solid foundations promised by their name with a thumping great single ‘In Your Eyes’.

Following swiftly on the heels of solo single from member Sam Hunn (see review here), nipaluna/Hobart trio Verticoli are back with their ferocious new single ‘The Fear’ – a smashing vibrant slice of anarchic rock.
