Sydney's The Knowgoods are a family in the same sense the Ramones were: in spirit, absent blood. They don't take themselves too seriously, but they give everything to their music.
Styrofoam Bones is about deciding not to be with someone because they've hurt you too much and you can’t do it anymore. It’s about the times where you feel vulnerable like you can’t hold the weight - that’s where the styrofoam concept comes from - you look right but you can’t hold the weight and you’re worried you’ll crumble.

Dan Howls - Mary Lou     Blues/Roots, Rock 20/09/2018
Dan Howls is an appropriate name for an artist with such a bellowing roar. Big, gritty and acidic, it's a voice that belongs to the blues...
Relentlessly steaming forward like a stolen train, Mary Lou is a fantastical crimson-soaked murder blues number and is
Dan Howls at his foot-stomping best. Needing nothing more than a guitar and a tambourine around it, his voice drives a grim narrative of death and dirty deeds, accompanied beautifully by the bittersweet vocals of Julia Weller.

Usually when I write love songs they are very personal. State Of Mind is more universal, a song of hope for people looking for love.”

A musical vanguard that is part immovable object, part irresistible force, Yalla Yalla are a sonic meteor storm of technical syncopated beats, inspired riffs and powerful, captivating vocals.
Vocalist Dave Watkins says "Not Ordinary touches on my will to flex and stretch social norms.

There's also an angle of vulnerability, like hiding behind somebody as a barrier of safety to the big wide world that you both don't understand."
