Martin James' songs are reflective, dark and edgy with some tracks adopting a more gentle and intimate approach.
The track “No Way Back” uses the metaphor of a broken guitar string to illustrate the feeling of nothing going right. The track is up tempo and at times the guitar provides an almost country rhythm as Martin unleashes his frustration. Further using the guitar as a metaphor singing "like you, I now play hard and the buzz kills everything"

Hailing from Rockhampton, rowdy rapscallions Pandamic return with their first 2019 release in 'Sweater' alongside a tongue-in-cheek video and news they'll be joining TOTTY this September.

An ode to lost property, 'Sweater' is short, fast and loud - everything a good skater tune should be. Gritty guitar and a punchy snare underlay infectious vocal melodies born in the tour van.
