Dear Willow - Happy     Indie, Pop, Folk, Alternative 14/11/2019
Dear Willow originated as the creative voice of Em-J Dau. Since then Dear Willow has transformed from poet to solo act to full-band, embracing a love of all things indie-rock.
"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.
"End of Days is about the feeling of being lost in your own life and looking outwards for a sense of direction and purpose, but that world outside your window is one of immense uncertainty and bleakness where it’s probably more difficult that an ever to know how to live your life."

CJ Stranger - Strange One     Blues, Rock, Alternative, Folk 13/11/2019
A singer-songwriter through and through, CJ Stranger's captivating voice, tell-all lyrics and natural feel for finger-picking work together in perfect synchrony.
Describing lead single Strange One as a “stream-of-consciousness ramble of a day living in the inner-west,” CJ carves out contemporary Australian music akin to present day greats like Courtney Barnett, filled with occurrences like electric shocks, technology failing, having a tunnel dug under your house, and tryin' to pay rent. “After a strong coffee,” he notes, “things feel better.”

With their penchant for warm melodious songwriting, Carmen Pepper and Dylan Ollivierre are The Money War, one of WA's most impressive indie-pop acts.
"Let Love In is written from the point of view of trying to navigate a friend out of a dark place. We wanted to write something that naturally and musically felt uplifting, even though the subject matter stemmed from a somewhat bleak space. It was certainly new ground for us to cover and is now a fave in our set."

Duncan Saige - Under the Weather     Indie, Pop, Rock 11/10/2019
Sounding like some kind of hybrid to Jeff Buckley and Supergrass, Duncan Saige glows with infectious vocal melodies enveloped in indie-pop and stripped back folk.
Under the Weather is about how Henry Clarke gradually came out of the trough and learnt some valuable life lessons along the way. "It’s extremely satisfying to know that some hard times can make you ‘upgrade into someone better’, as I reference in the chorus, and believe that everything can work itself out eventually."

Yo Yo Sun - Dark of Night     Folk, Indie 11/10/2019
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."'

The Phazes - ISLA     Rock, Indie 04/10/2019
Based in Sydney's famed northern beaches, The Phazes bring a unique, summery twist to what would be more traditionally a New York rock sound

With a more gentle and folky approach, repeat listening reveals an underlying depth that marries bittersweet lyrics with catchy, unforgettable melodies.

The Money War - We're Alright     Pop, Folk 02/08/2019
Dylan Ollivierre and Carmen Pepper are The Money War, one of Perth's most brightest and seductive indie-pop bands.
"We're Alright is a reassuring song about sticking together through the hard times and troubling confusion. I think a lot of people, myself included, are struggling to figure out where they fit in the world. It really feels like it’s a strange time to be alive." Dylan Ollivierre

Combining unrelenting groove with a passion for heaviness and harmony, Tassie born/Melbourne based three piece Verticoli have supported some of the country's biggest names while becoming headliners themselves.
"So Far is about a relationship coming about at a completely inopportune time. It was written after my girlfriend and I got together at the end of university, just as a fling initially, which then turned into more than that after we'd already accepted jobs on opposite sides of the country."

Indigo - La Luna     Pop, Rock 19/07/2019
Mandurah five-piece Indigo travel the deep waters of moody indie rock while showcasing a love of crafty pop hooks.
From the opening riffs, to the brooding verses, through each iteration of its uplifting chorus; La Luna is as much a powerful journey as it is a pop song. With more than a touch of retro-pop nostalgia in the mix, La Luna is an emotional, often yearning ride, made grand by Kinna's heartfelt lyrics of empathy and humanity.

Led by the powerhouse vocals of Ryan Rafferty and backed by the shredding guitars of Leon Todd and drum grooves of Cam Barrett, Ragdoll are the definitive hard rock band.
Guitarist Leon Todd: “Rust is simultaneously heavier and more melodic than anything we’ve written before. Working out of Hammerspace has resulted in the most complete performances we’ve ever recorded.”

“Merges the swagger of the Seventies, the anthemic melodies of the mid-Eighties and the sonic intensity of modern times.” Classic Rock Magazine

Carthasy - Connect     Metal/Punk, Rock 02/07/2019
Carthasy's heavy progressive sound is both fluid and crushing – a tsunami of valleys and peaks that come in relentless waves.
Commenting on the overlapping grey area between truth and falsehood, 'Connect' examines what goes through the minds of career politicians, once the cameras are turned off. Inspired by a chance encounter between frontman Garry Dick and former opposition leader Bill Shorten, Connect builds in impenetrable layers of thunderous drums and bass, blistering guitars and soaring vocal melodies.

Chaos Divine - False Flags     Metal/Punk 28/06/2019
Chaos Divine have carved out an impressive reputation as one of the finest prog-metal acts around thanks to their uncompromising arrangements, crushingly heavy riffs and soaring melodies.
Vocalist David Anderton says of the track, “While False Flags delves into conspiracy theories of clandestine governments attacking the very citizens they're sworn to protect, it also highlights a very real and on-going concern of the extreme privacy concerns and censorship that the people of leading nations today are experiencing.”
