Smoke Rings are songs of futility and sadness dressed in glittery guitar hooks, laconic vocals and shimmering tambourine.
The first and only release for 2018, Camcorder has been a long time coming. A commentary on mediocrity and submitting to 'settling down', this single applies strong hooks and pop sensibilities to dress it's dark content in a reverb wash of catchy guitar.


Valentina Brave - I Met A Man     Rock 23/11/2018
Valentina Brave’s vintage rock, murder ballads and soul anthems come directly from the underworld.
Unapologetic and unforgiving, this vintage rock bomb, reminiscent of a 70’s Betty Davis style anthem, is a heavy soul war-cry against the status quo. Valentina Brave holds nothing back on a full force performance where her epic voice wails a warning to ‘the man’ that ‘you can only wash yourself clean as your darkest sin’.

Syntax Error - Time In Reverse     Rock, Psychedelic, Atmospheric, Experimental 22/11/2018
Psychedelic post-rock for the apocalypse.
Time In Reverse shimmers on an inverted ocean sky. Before long we are plunging down a rabbit hole of mysteries and unanswered questions. Pearl drop guitars give way to gnashing rocks that threaten our little boat on the ocean sky that has begun to liquidly turn itself back on itself in a Moebius loop of time.

Grand Pine - Feel Alone     Rock, Folk 21/11/2018
Taking inspiration from artists such as Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Father John Misty, Boy and Bear and Husky, Grand Pine create their own style of Modern Folk Rock.
Feel Alone was written in the midst of a small crisis in which the loss of faith in everything I've worked for/on overcomes you and you feel useless to the current of the world around you. It also suggests that sometimes what you think you've wanted all along isn't all its cracked up to be.

Maroota Joe - Scum     Rock 21/11/2018
Progressive Hard Rock from Sydney Australia
“Scum” is a five minute vacuum of intensity that pulls the listener into moments of dark, peaceful, mellow verses then pushing them into a fierce, stabby chorus, leaving you feeling as if you’ve been shoved into a mosh pit right at the moment that you were feeling the pull to jump in and let loose.

Chakra Efendi - Mia     Rock, Pop 20/11/2018
19 y/o Chakra Efendi has always used late nights as a sufferer of insomnia to hone his songwriting skills, forming the backbone of his poetic, introspective and cathartic solo work.
"The ‘Mia’ addressed in the track isn’t about any person in-particular, but is the human embodiment of mental illness. These issues can harm people mentally and physically, just as a real person could. We all struggle from time to time and it’s important to talk about our problems and not keep quiet." - Chakra Efendi

Shrimpwitch - Leerers     Rock, Garage, Punk, Rockabilly 20/11/2018
Shrimpwitch entered the collective consciousness of punters in 2015, playing countless shows - all the while challenging the notion of what a live show should be, including jokes and banter.
Leerers is about trying to say no to creeps and leerers when you feel backed up against the wall. It's inspired from two experiences I've had while performing. So it's self-referential, in that when I'm performing live, I'm literally screaming at people that "I'm not here for you to leer". But through song - I'm actually screaming at you- live!

Cedarsmoke - Let The Wind Blow     Rock, Garage, Grunge 19/11/2018
Grab a bit of charm and grace and rub it in the dirt, put some grease over it and you’ll have something like this Brisbane-based slacker-rock 5-piece, Cedarsmoke.
‘Let The Wind Blow’ has the band aptly highlight the relatable mundane, circadian way of life. Imbued with a tender sense of despair, it cuts to the core about being tied down, trying to break away from “Invisible chains” and to ultimately to just let it blow and let it take you where it wants to.

Karise Eden - Gimme Your Love     Rock, Blues, Chill, Easy Listening 19/11/2018
Karise Eden is the powerful and engrossing blues vocalist that shot to fame at the age of 19 after winning the The Voice Season 1.
'Gimme Your Love' is the second single from Karise Eden's new album 'Born To Fight', coming out on Friday, November 23.

This song shows her fiery side and her passion for blues, rock’n roll and even the results of it being an amazing power ballad and chilled song to listen anytime, anywhere.

Midnight Creatures - Hope and Faith     Rock, Goth, Metal 19/11/2018
Dark, emotional rock/metal with a gothic flavour.
This track is a big anthemic number about the dichotomy between hope and faith and the cyclical relationship they share.

Other tracks by Midnight Creatures:  Daylight  -  Salt of My Earth
131's - Northbound     Rock, Punk, Hardcore 17/11/2018
Despite the multitude of ways the genre has been disputed and diluted, the spirit of punk rock has always remained, at its core, a state of mind.
Northbound is a tune about my time and relationships in Hamilton, NZ when I was 17. Some of the best times of my life. Things changed at the drop of a hat back then and life was always turbulent, full of passion and chaos. Eventually it all spun out and things started to fold.

Other tracks by 131's:  The Undertow
A Lesser Ego - Da Ee Yah     Rock, Pop 17/11/2018

Dirt Hand - LION     Rock, Psychedelic, Folk, Jazz 17/11/2018
Nina Simone bludgeoning Bill Callahan over the head with a velour lampshade.
A song likens the passing of an uncle
to the defeat of a mighty lion by a gust of wind.
A song is dressed up in layers of rhythm,
each a variation on the other,
creating a vibrant beat tapestry.

Donna Amini - Big Machine     Rock, Garage, Grunge, Punk 17/11/2018
Raised on Persian music and classical violin pieces, Amini takes a broad range of influences and ropes them into a blistering sound that’s unlike anything else currently making the rounds.
The song's low-rolling rumble is designed to emulate the disorienting bustle of inner-city living; the grinding roar of guitars and fragmented words, like too many street signs. Amini's voice offers some clear direction, emerging through the guitar-driven thrum like a mesmerising tour guide.

EYESØRES - Exodus Rising     Rock, Punk 17/11/2018
Deranged, Angular Post-Punk with garage tendencies that lodges itself between local contemporaries and that of late 70's UK punk.
A bass driven, angular punk song with cathartic vocals and a pounding rhythm that discusses contradictory social & cultural structures.

Other tracks by EYESØRES:  Second State  -  Sweat
Feelds - Bloody Mary     Rock, Folk 17/11/2018
Feelds, the Melbourne-based project of James Seymour, has quickly grown into a fully-fledged outfit, defined by clever songwriting used to provoke a dynamic soundscape of honest storytelling.
After making a triumphant return with 'Kill The Moon', which was instantly added to triple J rotation, Melbourne multitasker, Feelds (James Seymour), has backed it up with the dramatically tense 'Bloody Mary'.
Combining intricate production with authoritative guitar lines, the song breathes life into the indecisive 'Mary', whose trains of thought are perfectly represented by Feelds and Merpire's harmonious vocals.
