There’s a rumour that Western Australia churns out these talented bands in factories, and they certainly don’t believe in overproduction. Off the back of last year’s sophomore EP ‘Party Friends’, the dynamically adroit surf rock trio Pretty Uglys have kicked off the new year with their latest offering, ‘Situation City’. The track’s relaxed pulse is …

Western Australian’s Methyl Ethel (the project of Jake Webb) has today announced the release of their new album ‘Are You Haunted?’ for 18 February 2022 via their new label home, Future Classic. The nine-track album will contain previous singles ‘Neon Cheap’ and ‘Matters’, as well as the new single, ‘Proof’ featuring Stella Donnelly, out today. ‘Proof’ is a brightly bubbling stream with Donnelly …

We premiered Damien Binder‘s track ‘Everything But’ way back in May. We said it was a glorious example of Binder’s craft: a shimmering restless piece that travels with a spark and a verve, laced with melancholia and a meditative air: Binder’s voice is so immersive and mesmerising there should be a warning not to operate …

Blasting off with ‘Emergency Room’, Western Australian band Pretty Uglys‘ new EP ‘Party Friends’ is a pulsating and vibrant set of magnificent, sneering and imposing tracks. Pure guitar-driven riffs over a thundering rhythm section and with vocals so loaded with attitude you can almost see the arched eyebrows and sneer. It is gratifyingly cathartic and …

There is one thing patently obvious when listening to Methyl Ethel’s new single ‘Neon Cheap’: this is a band forging it’s own aural adventure and the result is something that is quite unique and highly impressive. Sweeping along on an almost funky flow – gently splashing guitars and a off-beat rhythm – the vocals are …

The history of enigmatic Western Australian band Pond is inextricably linked with fellow mega star exports Tame Impala, with common members revolving in and out of each others bands over time. As a collective, the band has an impressive resume – eight studio albums with the release of their most critically acclaimed album to date, ‘Tasmania’ …

To mark the release of the InnerSpeaker 10 Year Anniversary Edition, Tame Impala, aka Kevin Parker reveals short film InnerSpeaker Memories. Wonderfully captured by director/photographer Matt Sav and edited by Alex Haygarth, it features never-before-seen footage from the recording of InnerSpeaker at the iconic Wave House Studio in Yallingup, Western Australia. Watch Innerspeaker Memories here …

‘All Rise’ is the very exciting and extremely fresh sound from Western Australia’s Cloning. Ostensibly classic indie rock with a touch of shoegaze, there is a whiff of trip hop percussive stuttering among the chiming guitars and synths. A crisp and layered production with a pounding, pulse-quickening chorus and the expressive, emotive vocals of singer/guitarist …
