Legs Electric - Dark Paradise     Rock 19/06/2018
Legs Electric summon the spirit of the golden days of heavy rock – overcharging '70s blues-based riffs with a full-power vocal attack and a live show worthy of Sunset Strip.
Dark Paradise is Legs Electric in perfect summary: huge guitars, huge drums, huge vocals and huge hooks. In under three and a half minutes, Legs Electric arrive, destroy the place and leave.

The Lizards - No Fracture     Metal/Punk, Hardcore 13/06/2018
One of Adelaide's most loved hardcore-pop punk bands, The Lizards are driven by the same motivation they began with: a shared vision to create fast, hard and positive music.
Transitioning from simple and sturdy to blisteringly technical in the blink of an eye, 'No Fracture' summons the energy of legendary punk and thrash bands throughout the ages, and channels it in a powerful new direction.

Dear Willow - HOLD     Rock, Folk 29/05/2018
Dear Willow is the creative voice of Sunshine Coast based artist Em-J Dau, transforming from poet to a solo acoustic act and now embracing her sound through a full band.
HOLD is a cautionary lament documenting the artist’s experiences of frustration in feeling simultaneously stuck, and rushed forward, with the gentle undertones of a friend breaking bad news. The result is a tapestry of intricate layers - soulful, melodically organic and unapologetically real.

Laurie Luke - Rainbow Bomb     Rock 29/05/2018
Growing up on a healthy diet of Hendrix, Beatles and 90's alternative, songwriter and producer Laurie Luke has rolled his influences into a dynamic brand of Aussie rock.
“My son did a painting, different colours from the middle out to the end of the page. He said it was called ‘Rainbow Bomb’. I was like, ‘aww, you’re a genius’ (lol). So I wrote it into a piece of music I already had bubbling and the lyrics are stream-of-consciousness."

Foxton Kings - Money, Money     Rock 26/05/2018
Perth's Foxton Kings write the kind of riffs that kick you in the face. And, while you're recovering, they hit you with barrage after barrage of searing vocal hooks.
Opening with a salacious groove before kicking into savage riffery, Money, Money is both rock'n'roll and a personal 'f**k you' to a shady character from the band's past. This added emotional realness is the tipping point of Money, Money, which is a more aggressive approach by the band overall.

Duncan Saige - Pumping Up My Life     Rock, Pop, Folk 22/05/2018
Stepping out from his role as frontman/guitarist with Perth indie-rockers Stillwater Giants, Henry Clarke's next chapter of Duncan Saige comes via his irresistible new single Pumping Up My Life.
Using audio he recorded from a petrol bowser to create the rhythm of the song, Pumping Up My Life carries an infectious melody enveloped in acoustic guitars. Lyrically the song comments on the over-induglence some people feel they need to fit into the modern, fast-paced world.

Nakatomi - Jaguar     Pop, Electronic, Dance 22/05/2018
Nakatomi’s approach to electronic music taps into the spirit of 80’s nu wave, 90’s grunge and some liberal helpings of modern electro pop with big production and melodic nostalgia.
Co-written by producer JP Fung and Mario Spate, Nakatomi's ‘Jaguar’ is a minimalistic anti-dance jungle pop tune with a chorus hook that stands amongst their strongest to date. Nakatomi secretly wishes the song was about Jaguar from Rick and Morty - may he one day find his daughter!

Foreign Architects - Saw Myself     Rock, Pop 12/05/2018
On their latest single Saw Myself, Perth four-piece Foreign Architects deliver weighty, contemplative lyrics on a joyride through gentle, uplifting melodies.
Saw Myself was written amidst pure tumultuousness - within the space of weeks, singer Matt Burke had lost a family member, wound up in a city gripped by terrorist attacks and faced a painful breakup. Born of the ashes of these events, Saw Myself is about reflection, honesty and perspective.

King of the Travellers - Come Out and Play     Rock, Cover Version 12/05/2018
Intertwining layers of Romani, Balkan and Celtic folk into a punk-fuelled tornado, King of the Travellers summon the musical ghosts of yore from every corner of the globe.
Novel, though still packing a punch, King of the Travellers beautifully transport the Come Out and Play's melodies back to their ancestral heritage and is perhaps the best display of their talent for mashing up different eras of music and giving it all an irresistible dive-bar swagger.

Sam Carmody - Sharks     Folk, Pop, Atmospheric 10/05/2018
Award winning author Sam Carmody has been active as a writer across various projects and recalls the experimental Antipodean pop of Nick Cave, The Go-Betweens and Crowded House.
Sam Carmody is pleased to share his evocative new single Sharks. A distinctly contemporary song about love circled by masculine darkness, buried histories, global conflict and a rising sea, it also serves as a taste of Sam's forthcoming EP due out mid-year.

Alex Arpino - I Remember You (Dancing with the Devil)     Rock, Pop 09/05/2018
Alex Arpino has a rich history in Perth with a decade fronting indie-pop purveyors The Autumn Isles, he now sets out on a solo escapade with his debut self-tilted record.
Written and recorded in his studio, I Remember You (Dancing with the Devil) features Alex Arpino on all instruments and vocal duties with Malcolm Clark (The Sleepy Jackson) on drums. Alex has pieced together an infectious saturated synth hook gem that balances the line between new wave and psych-pop.

Nakatomi - Old Flame     Pop, Electronic 09/05/2018
Nakatomi’s approach to electronic music taps into the spirit of 80’s nu wave, 90’s grunge and some liberal helpings of modern electro pop with big production and melodic nostalgia.
Old Flame is a dreamy slacker electro pop tune that's lyrically based on a dream about bumping into someone you had an intense connection with once and they don’t remember who you are.

Valentine (with Jinco) - Hitch     Pop, Electronic, Dance 09/05/2018
Feeling a natural affinity for folk singer-songwriting from a young age while growing up in regional WA towns, Valentine has since been producing a dazzling style of electro-pop.
Opening with a captivating cinematic quality and going on to feature elements of jazz and classical amongst driving beats and pulsating synths, Jinco's production is highlighted by Valentine's commanding and impassioned vocal delivery.

Blue Child Collective - Wake Up To The Sound     Blues/Roots, Roots, World 08/05/2018
Fronted by Dan White, an enthusiastic collaborator, multi-instrumentalist and finger-style artisan, Blue Child Collective are a fluid groove n' roots outfit based in and out of Margaret River.
An upbeat, lively dance tune featuring skanky guitar and punchy horns, Wake Up To The Sound carves out vivid imagery as BCC dissect the nature of sound with their light-hearted yet philosophical exploration of vibration, provoking the listener to think about music and life in a fresh new light.

Dark Universe - Weight of the World     Rock, Metal 08/05/2018
“It’s progressive metal, with soaring melodies from Jaime Page’s inspirational guitar-playing and Donna Greene’s commanding vocals and stagecraft with chops for miles coming from all band members." Around The Sound
Featuring Jaime Page's apocalyptic and haunting guitar work, first single Weight Of The World is a battle hymn for the disaffected and a snarling ode to the oppressed and alienated.

Robert Hinton - Footprints     Blues/Roots, Folk, Roots, Rock 08/05/2018
With three albums under his belt, Perth singer-songwriter Robert Hinton blends the beautiful storytelling of folk and roots music with some of the more hard hitting attributes of modern rock.
New single Footprints is an exquisite duet featuring female Perth artist Kim Stolen and is a perfect example of Robert Hinton’s raw sincerity as a songwriter and performer.

Pacing The Cage - Thrill Pill     Rock, Metal 01/05/2018
Blasting out the speakers with herculean riffs and razor sharp vocal hooks, 'Thrill Pill' by Pacing The Cage is like a case of hand grenades with their pins pulled out.
A provocative tale to impeach the behaviour of men who treat women like they are objects of entitlement and consumption, Thrill Pill parades masculinity in all it’s shameful glory. With contemptuous lyrics, memorable melodies and bombastic riffs, Pacing The Cage wraps up powerful lyrics in equally incendiary music.

Black Stone from the Sun - Smile In A Daze     Rock 18/04/2018
Perth grunge-punk duo Black Stone from the Sun deliver impassioned chunky rock with a massive dose of melody. For fans of DZ Deathrays, Polish Club and huge riffs and sing-alongs.
Spearheaded by new single Smile In A Daze, arguably their heaviest but most melodious track yet, Dreamalysis demonstrates the band’s evolution since their 2015 EP Death Threats and Cigarettes, showcasing a refined songwriting approach that delves into darker lyrical territory whilst retaining their raucous, bone-shattering, chaotic sound.

King of the Travellers - Señor Oxido     Rock, World, Punk, Roots 18/04/2018
Intertwining layers of Romani, Balkan and Celtic folk into a punk-fuelled tornado, King of the Travellers summon the musical ghosts of yore from every corner of the globe.
On their fierce new single Señor Oxido, Fremantle 7-piece King of the Travellers ride into new territory with a heavy gallop. While the song's lyric is a playful ode written upon the departure of former bandmate Rusty, Señor Oxido is a powerful orchestration of the band's impressive ensemble.

After a decade fronting indie-pop purveyors The Autumn Isles, Alex Arpino now sets out on a solo escapade, showcasing not only his songwriting prowess, but his skills as a producer.
