Rice Is Nice

Sort by: Date Artist
You Beauty - Scent Of My Youth     Rock, Pop 09/08/2014
Carried by a punchy back-line and lean, side-stepping guitar melodies, You Beauty’s pop opus follows two album singles in 2013, including Ann-Maree, which made Hand Games' top ten 2013.
A recollection of times past. A moody, edgy track that brings feelings of 90's nostalgia.

You Beauty - Same Damn Thing     Rock, Garage, Punk, Pop 11/12/2015
Sydney's post-punk / pub rock outfit You Beauty follow last year's highly acclaimed Jersey Flegg album with another serious ear-tickler: 'Illywhacka', from their upcoming LP of the same name.
Same Damn Thing sounds like the first sunny day after a week-long spring time drenching; it’s like getting 20 bucks out of that scratchy your nan sent on your b’day; it’s simple, affordable pleasure contained in three and a half minutes of walking-pace, shimmering pop music.
