In many ways, Yard Act exist through the fusion of seemingly opposing entities. Old friends in a new band, they seek out shades of socio-political grey, imbibing their stories with sharp, satirical spoken-word humour. Spearheaded by James Smith (vocals) and Ryan Needham (bass), the now four-piece, completed by Sam Shjipstone (guitar) and Jay Russell (drums), …

“Consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself?” Herman Melville. If I were to try and capture the essence of empowering narrative behind The Palace’s new album ‘Shoals’, this would be it. A depiction of the inner and outer conflict ; the dichotomy …

The word cathartic was surely invented to describe a genre of rock’n’roll that exudes swagger and attitude through every sweaty pore. Big Orange have decanted a barrel full of this in their new single ‘By The Dozen’ – a cantankerous and belligerent slice of utterly cathartic indie rock. Big Orange is the project of one …

We are very honoured to premiere the new single ‘We Come Unseen’ from the mysterious Brisbane group Dänmark – a part of the luminescent False Peak Records stable which have been releasing all manner of tasty treats in the lead up to the big day tomorrow. Over the past 11 days we have already seen releases …

“This is not your cliche story, I’m sick of happy endings, they feel so boring” declare The Plane Sailors in the typically candid, offbeat style that defines their new single Bell Curve. Blending amusing honesty with hooky melodies, the Brisbane-based outfit recorded the track in singer Curtis Hooper’s bedroom, before completing the session in bassist …

WITH six of the best ready for your delectation out now in the shape of their EP, Since The Dog Died, and a British headline tour including a hometown show at Manchester’s Academy 2 mere days away, really, it’s fair to say that anthemic Mancunian indie rockers should be donning shades, for the future is …

HAILING by birth from the original OC, Orange County, Californ-i-a, Parker James and Caden Shea, the duo who together comprise the gloriously stoner outfit Olive Vox, moved way inland to Dallas as kids, uprooted into a different way of being. Kicking their heels during the hellish restrictions of 2020 they listened, practised, listened, jammed, listened …

Melbourne mammoths The Last Martyr have established themselves as a vivacious force in the Australian heavy community. The latest single ‘Freaking Out’ shows them at new heights, continuing their effortless streak of releases that just keep hitting the mark. Lead by their fearless queen of a vocalist, Monica Strut, ‘Freaking Out’ unleashes hellbent fury through …

When we reviewed their last single, we described Seven Days and Doesn’t Die as “snarling, sneering, punk-tinged rock n’ roll, with an aggression that many bands aspire to but so few pull off with such aplomb, yet filled with singalong, gang-vocal chorus and hooklines that sink their teeth in and refuse to let go”.  Seven …

Legendary Swedish high energy hard rock band The Hellacopters have signed with Nuclear Blast records, with a new studio album already in the bag slated for an early 2022 release. Whilst the excitement over a new album – their eighth studio album, and the first all-new material since 2005’s Rock and Roll is Dead (and …
