Sydney band Victoria have today released their second single ‘Favourite Teacher’ through legendary producer Wayne Connolly’s label Scenic Drive Records, and they maintain the upward trajectory set by their debut single ‘Creative Frenzy’ (reviewed here). The label supergroup is apt – this is a band consisting of members of seminal bands Youth Group, The Vines, Smudge and …

A firm favourite here at Backseat Mafia, the enigmatic Melbourne juggernaut Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird (CTBNF) have today announced the release of a new album entitled ‘Smiles of Earth’ for Friday, 26 August 2022 (out through Double Drummer), a nationwide tour of Australia with a new single ‘Red Dirt Angel’ released today.

We are very honoured to premiere today the new single ‘Muse’ from Naarm/Melbourne based artist Jacob Fitzgerald – a musician we have followed with great interest here at the southern outpost of Backseat Mafia. ‘Muse’ is a hyperreactive blast of sonic adrenalin administered by an artist who is fills his music with an insouciant swagger …

The result is something energetic and euphoric with a frenetic pace and an aquatic sibilance. Keelan X displays a …

With a looping, breathing backtrack and an hyperkinetic restless lilt burnished by a wild and abandoned trumpet, the new single from artist Charlie Woods, under the name Charlie Needs Braces, is an exuberant ray of golden sunshine. Woods comes from a proud First Nations background (a GuriNgai woman, descendant of Bungaree and Matora) and the …

Brisbane’s The Double Happiness have provided an endless source of brilliant shimmering sounds like no other band over the past few years, carving out a distinct sun-kissed brand of jangle that resonates and captures the sea salt encrusted radiant shores of coastal Queensland. We are ever so honoured to premiere their new single, ‘Smoking Gun’: …

We are honoured to premiere the new single ‘Back To Me’ from Perth-based New Zealand troubadour Damien Binder. Binder has perfected a brand of antipodean indie pop that shimmers and sparkles like a mirage on the desert horizon. His luscious fulsome sound fills his new single with a blinding glitter, laced with Binder’s trademark velvet …
