There is a wild untrammeled madness to the new single ‘Fuzzy’ by Welsh band Bandicoot that is utterly mesmerising and incandescent. There are no brakes on this particular vehicle – a doo-wop singing style infused with a gritty attitude, reverb-soaked vocals and an arched eyebrow or two: stylistic, cool and unhinged. It’s just brilliant. The …

We are very honoured to premiere today the visually stunning new video from Italian shoegaze band CLUSTERSUN for their dreamy single ‘All Your Pain’.

There’s a breezy lilt to the single ‘Old Mind Of Mine’ from Brisbane indie folk outfit Full Power Happy Hour that pervades the jaunty new video we are very pleased to premiere today. ‘Old Mind Of Mine’ is a jangling and effervescent track filled with an air of languid sunshine and idyllicism.

The Dumb Whales‘ proficiency in producing epic melodic indie standards continues unabated with their new track ‘Pollen’, which we are very pleased to premiere today in advance of its release on Thursday.

Backseat Mafia is very pleased to premiere the video for the new single by Brisbane’s dream pop/shoegaze specialists, Local Authority.

We are very pleased to premiere the opening track to Brisbane band We Set Sail‘s forthcoming third album ‘Ritual and Ceremony’. And it’s a blinder. ‘The Valium Phase’ is an explosive, passionate blast to the ears – stabbing guitars and pounding rhythms with vocals that bleed emotion and wrench the heart. This track has a …

Jessica’s voice is as majestic and ethereal as Kate Bush’s and ‘Silence’ is a brief but so very haunting and evocative song. Deep strings underpin the gorgeous floating vocals and create a hypnotic drone. There is a …
