We are very honoured to premiere the stunning new track ‘This is the End’ from Queensland’s innovative Swimsuit Edition – a band that refuses to be labelled or constrained in any way. From the punk thrash of ‘Addict’ to the pop lilt of ‘The Feeling’ and the bleached-white doobie-laden surfy ‘Hit It With You’, the …

Swimsuit Issue are proving themselves to be one of the most intriguing and adventurous indie groups around – refusing to stand in one place and refusing to be easily labelled. The first single we reviewed, ‘Addict’ was a cathartic and blistering punk onslaught, followed by the anthemic indie pure pop fizz of ‘The Feeling‘. We …

Queensland artist LT (formerly Leanne Tennant) has just released an absolutely gorgeous track ‘Hold Ya’ which sparkles with a deep yearning and a celestial, anthemic chorus. LT’s vocals are an absolute delight – with a massive range and an endearing local diction. ‘Hold Ya’ is classic pop – indelible melodies and a dancing, insistent instrumentation …

‘Addict’, the new single by Australian band Swimsuit Issue has a dynamic quiet/loud ethic popularised by the Pixies, mixing a reverb-soaked dreamy reflective verse with an angry blast of thundering guitars in the chorus. The unashamedly and very welcomed Australian diction shines through before the gut-wrenching chorus kicks in. A song about, as the title …

There’s nothing like a bit of noisy, shouty guitar-driven rock’n’roll, and Queenland’s Haters have released a blaster in their debut ‘Feel Better’.

A languorous, charged and alluring dreamy fugue emanates from the new single by Brisbane’s Cloud Tangle in the delicious single ‘Thinking of Myself’. Cloud Tangle is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and producer Amber Ramsay, who has been releasing music under Cloud Tangle since 2014. Of Cloud Tangle, Ramsay says: My goal with this project …

One of the best exponents of the new wave of Australian shoegaze/dream pop, Queensland’s Fragile Animals have followed up their much lauded EP ‘Only Shallow’ earlier this year with a blistering new single ‘Waiting’. Inserting a vibrant sheen of jangling guitars, discordance and harmonies, ‘Waiting’ is a gorgeous shimmering wall of sound, with its dream-like …

Chakra Efendi is a rare and unique talent: a product of the talent factory that is Queensland and with a low-fi resonance that is haunting and melancholic. Efendi (uses they/them/their pronouns) has released a double ‘A’ single. ‘Body in the Water’ comes the closest to carrying the flag of the legendary The Triffids that I’ve …

Yet another blast of creativity from Queensland gets launched to day with the release of the single ‘Don’t Go (Riding Down The Cosmic Drain)’ by the psychedelic upstarts, Gold Coast’s Syrup, Go On!. The title of the song tells you everything: this is a psych-infused stop/start sparkling brilliance surely fueled by substances you wouldn’t want …
