Crystal Ignite - Black Mamba     Rock, Alternative, Metal 14/03/2020
Crystal Ignite makes music supercharged with kinetic emotion. Meshing together the parallel universes of analogue and digital, building stadium-sized rock laced with pulsating electronica and deep, heavy grooves.
Much like its reptilian namesake, the making of single Black Mamba has been a process of shedding skin – of growing beyond the past and into the present. Crystal explains, “Its all about the magic of cosmic alchemy, and acknowledging shadow, which ultimately sees you end up rising higher and creating more light.”

Foxton Kings - Getting Old     Rock, Alternative 06/03/2020

Ragdoll - Follow The Leader     Rock, Metal, Alternative 06/03/2020
Expertly honing a hard rock with a sound that owes as much to the arena rock of the 70's and 80's as it does the grungy sounds of the 90’s.
A Perth brand of high-octane hard rock, vocalist Ryan Rafferty says, “Follow the Leader deals with being put on a pedestal and treated as an answer to people’s problems. If you toe the line you can play god to them, but ultimately they’ll drain you of your energy and leave you feeling empty.”

"I wrote Happy at a time when a couple of people in my immediate circle were going through divorces/separations. It made me question why we put ourselves out there and risk so much? But then I also saw those same people put themselves out there again despite the heartbreak. Love is scary as hell but we do it anyway."

Valley Onda - Turtle     Alternative, Indie, Experimental, Electronic / Beats / Industrial 14/11/2019
Valley Onda are a highly evolved animal. Combined, the band's studio prowess and their organic musicality form something bold and unique that finds its power in subtlety, delicacy and tastefulness.
Turtle is a loose metaphor for a complex love song - a hard shell with a soft centre, retraction and self-protection, wisdom and self-belief - a slow and steady number about getting to know someone who seems so far away but is yearning to be touched.

Verticoli - End of Days     Rock, Alternative 14/11/2019
Combining unrelenting groove with a passion for heaviness and harmony, Tassie born/Melbourne based three piece Verticoli are one of the must-see rock acts on the rise.

It was certainly new ground for us to cover and is now a fave in our set."

Yo Yo Sun is the Fremantle-based duo of Jamie Tan and Andrew Miller. Filled with uplifting songs that dance the tightrope between happiness and heartache that's honest and beautifully delivered.
"Dark of Night is about that space when hopelessness could envelop you but there's a sense of hope too; waiting on one moment to turn things around. We casually played it right after a long night of recording when all the mics were still on. Little did we know we'd end up using what we captured as the one take."'
