Infinity Broke are a band that does not go gently into the night: their new album ‘Your Dream My Jail’ is an excoriating, driven, thunderous slice of post-punk cake that is angular, studded and visceral. Guitars wail and caterwaul, drums crash like waves on an exposed coast and singer Jamie Hutchings (formerly of nineties indie …

Darren Cross is a pillar of the inner city indie scene in Australia: one of those hyperactive artists who never stands still. In the nineties he was in Gerling – a genre-defying iconic indie band that transgressed the boundaries between guitar-based indie rock and electronica. Later as part of Jess and Dep, he delved into …

If you haven’t checked out Ruby Fields before, now would be an especially good time. The Sydney-based artist has been building up to the release of her debut album for a while, with two singles from the record out in the wild already: last September’s ‘Pretty Grim‘ and April’s ‘R.E.G.O‘. The song she’s sharing today …

We are very honoured to premiere the new single ‘What You See Is What You Get’ from Sydney’s brilliant Magnetic Heads: a gloriously rich synth-injected eighties-influenced motorik blast. Singer/songwriter Des Miller has the velvet rich, deep and resonant vocals of Ian Curtis, David Bowie or Iggy Pop, and the band has the syncopated rhythms and …

Johnny Hunter released one of the most enthralling and fascinating albums of last year with their debut EP ‘Early Trauma’ (see my review here). Theatrical, gothic, effervescent and with just a hint of malevolence, this is a band that slaps on some makeup and puts on a show – visual and aural pummeling that is …

There are layers of lush instrumentation and a dreamy intergalactic aura to the new single from Sydney artist LOVER (the nome de plume of Oliver Kirby. The slightly surreal atmosphere – a dreamy, melodic fugue – is matched by the arresting visuals of the accompanying video. What LOVER does is infect an electronic wash with …

Sydney indie punk outfit Down for Tomorrow have released an anthemic rock single ‘Sentimental’. Blessed with celestial choruses and a thundering rock beat, this is an outstanding piece of melodic rock, with a gritty undercurrent and crunchy attack of guitars supporting glorious harmonies and impassioned vocals. The result is something that is quite euphoric. Singer/guitarist …

Last year we shone a bright light on the debut album ‘Savoury-toothed Tiger‘ from Sydney go-to musician Pete Marley’s outfit Marveline, calling it: …a pocketful of pure pop, with some sunshine and humour for the age of isolation and yet leavened by darker observations and the odd touch of melancholia.  It was a buoyant piece …

Infinity Broke, with a breath of fresh air forcefully expelled, cleared out our collective cobwebs with their last single ‘Death of a Tourist’ (premiered by us in May). We are again honoured to be able to premiere their follow up single ‘Dragon’s Breath’: a track with slightly less propulsion but just as much impact. Highly …

Qualified optimism never sounded so melancholic and measured than in the beautiful debut single from The Petrov Affair, a Sydney trio consisting of Murray Lee (Vocals, Keyboards, Guitar), Bruce Thomas (Guitar, Vocals) and Glenn Cone (Bass). Members were formerly in the band The Lee Three. ‘Back On Top’ has a stately and yearning piano riff …
