Candy is the solo moniker of Melbourne creative Calum Newton. Formerly of Lunatics on Pogosticks and Amyl + The Sniffers, Candy sees Newton embrace post-punk and dream-pop of all eras.
“Familiar” traces the struggles with dementia; forgetting who you are, where you are, and the impact on those around you. The track juxtaposes an uneasy topic with bright guitar tones and violin, which is becoming a somewhat trademark of Candy’s.

Laden with an atmospheric, moody aesthetic, "New Year" celebrates fresh beginnings, new resolutions, while paying homage to the good intentions and bad realities that inevitably take their place.

Moaning Lisa - Take You Out     Rock, Punk, Gay Alligned, Grunge 28/05/2019

Having captured fans with their steaming anthemic single, "DFTM", the Wollongong-via-Melbourne noise-pop two-piece, Cry Club return with ‘Two Hearts'.

Swim Team is the three piece of Sammy, Krystal and TJ. they take inspiration from 60s girls groups, lo-fi indie pop to ramshackle garage and anything soaked in reverb.

Prudence - Euphoria     Rock 20/03/2019
