Shadows Without Substance - Vortex     Rock, Punk, Metal, Grunge 17/05/2019
Shadows Without Substance are a female fronted hard rock band from Brisbane. We like loud and meaningful music, so we play loud and (hopefully) meaningful music
Vortex is a song about ego. It's about that guy who plays guitar just to "get chicks" and carries himself that way. It's about that guy who thinks everyone loves him and can do no wrong. We hate that guy, so we wrote a rock song about him. Really helps get that anger out.

Cloud Tangle - Carousel Composition     Rock, Atmospheric, Ambience, Goth 16/05/2019
Cloud Tangle is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Amber Ramsay, which combines video art and composition to evoke a mood equally devastating and beautiful.
The idea of going around in circles on a theme park ride is a timeless experience of both adrenaline and regret, much like many things in life. I wanted to create that but in a more lost, dark way. Like when young people of yore would attend theme parks for fun, but also lived in a more naive reality.

Dorah Jacson - Away     Rock, Pop 16/05/2019
Raw/dark/dreamy Indie-rock.
'Away' comes from a time where I was very lost - it was the start of a new year where I didn't know to do next in my life. I was going out every weekend but it wasn't really my thing. One night I met someone like me and this song is about that.

Patrick Ryan’s music sounds like the soundtrack to a western film set at a seaside carnival.
