Dress Thèque - Gone Mad     Rock, Britpop, Electronic 17/04/2019
Dress Thèque is a genre-blending band from Sydney. Drawing on Manchester inspired flavours of trip-hop & dance-rock, Dress Theque echo the 90’s but bring it together with a futuristic aesthetic.
“Gone Mad’ is an ode to everything Manchester and to all our favourite Manchester bands from Joy Division to Oasis and everything in between. We jammed as many of those sounds & our own into the song including the ‘too loud’ guitar mix of early Oasis" - Dress Thèque

L.A. Mood - Highway Fidelity     Rock, Blues 17/04/2019
L.A. Mood is the solo project of Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Dave Mudie. Having played or cameo'd in 40+ bands, Mudie is best known as Courtney Barnett's full-time drummer.
Short and sharp at 2:17, it's a woozy, sun-ravaged jam. Co-written with Ambrose Kenny-Smith (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard/The Murlocs), this is a real road-dog's anthem about the ground-hog day of touring, then adjusting to home-life in between. Musically inspired by the likes of James Brown and The Spinners with some washed-out blues added.

PINCH POINTS - SHIBBOLETH     Rock, Punk 17/04/2019
PINCH POINTS play clean, angular guitar harmonies and heavy mechanical riffs, belting-out group-vocals, all at a turbo-punk speed.
Between a punctuated riff and a call and response chorus, Pinch Points fit a lot into a less-than 3-minute song. Listen to also hear a catchy post-chorus lead line and lyrics alluding to nasty people in the music industry.

PLTS - Young Ones     Rock 17/04/2019
Since forming in 2012, Byron Bay's PLTS have produced mesmerising music, and through their exploration of grunge, indie and garage rock, developed an innate knack for writing larger-than-life songs.
Bittersweet ‘Young Ones’ is a song about reflection, a collection of memories and stories that shape the world you’ve built around yourself. Straddling the realms of mature indie and stadium rock, the track articulates feelings of growth, change and loss - elements which across the seven tracks of Lonely Leaves evoke a rich sense of nostalgia.

Slowly Slowly - Jellyfish     Rock, Punk, Pop 17/04/2019
In just a few short years, Melbourne four-piece Slowly Slowly have marked themselves as one of the most adored anthemic rock purveyors the country has ever seen.
Frontman Ben Stewart describes 'Jellyfish' as being about that all-too-common human feeling of existential dread. "Sometimes everything just seems so ridiculous," he says. "The concept of existing, being in a body, our interactions with feelings and emotions and this wacky 3D landscape we tell ourselves is normal." Though sonically light-hearted, 'Jellyfish' ultimately toys with some heavy concepts in expert fashion.

The Ruiins - Wasted     Rock 17/04/2019
2 piece from mid north coast Lead singer is the drummer just released first single off second EP touring Australia at the moment.
Wasted is primarily about wasting time. The mind frame you face as a result of time wasting and really wanting to change bad habits, but it seeming too hard or out of your control

It’s an upbeat song that’ll get your singing along

Towns - Safe To Stay     Rock 17/04/2019
It just felt like we wanted to write a song yelling out to the world ‘ITS OKAY’ ‘WE HAVE ALL FELT THAT TOO’ cause that always makes everyone feel better.
This is probably the funnest song we’ve written to date, not only to play live but inspiration wise its very different to our first release. It just felt like we wanted to write a song yelling out to the world ‘ITS OKAY’ ‘WE HAVE ALL FELT THAT TOO’ cause that always makes everyone feel better.

MOUSEWATER calls Melbourne, Australia home. Mousewater’s musical style is guitar based indie rock with occasional Britpop tones.
WHEN THE SUN IS GONE lyrically is about seizing the day, before the light is gone, don’t wait because “when it’s gone it’s really gone”. The subject of what you might take action on is open to personal interpretation but could be anything that leaves an element of regret.

Swim Team - Everyday Things     Rock, Pop, Garage 16/04/2019
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.
Everyday Things is a tongue in cheek tune about everybody's first world problems, a 2 minute moan and groan about all the little annoying things that make up the daily grind.


Syrup, Go On - Don't Go (Riding Down The Cosmic Drain)     Rock, Psychedelic, Folk, Pop 16/04/2019
Syrup, Go On is based on the Gold Coast, Australia. Luscious, luminous, and explosive pop songs that unravel more with each listen define the band.
Don’t Go (Riding Down the Cosmic Drain) is a dare, a warning, and a celebration all wrapped up into a four and half minute hallucinogenic pocket symphony. Lyrical themes delve into the band’s inner space while the instrumentals will lift you to outer space.

Andrew G - Turning Pages     Rock, Garage 16/04/2019

A song about new acquaintances and introductions…a fitting start to the record.

A story based on a girl's life takes a turn for the worst

Plastic Birds - Say     Rock, Psychedelic 16/04/2019
Psychedelic froth 'n' roll
Say is a beat driven, psychedelic trance built around a drone style riff and repeated vocal mantra. The song is an audio trip of sonic bliss for your inner ears. The song builds through a fuzz guitar solo to a 12-string guitar crescendo, uplifting and returning in full circle with an eternal fadeout.

The Know - Honey     Rock, Blues 16/04/2019
The Know are a moody midnight rock 'n' roll band with an appetite for rumbling groovers and howling hip-twisters based in Sydney's inner-west.
"Honey" is about feeling the allure of something, getting that addictive rush and not being able to stop it. So the song follows the chaos of a lustful entanglement. We were heavily inspired by the brazen attitude of modern blues and that rhythmic guitar riff gave us the perfect 'in' to explore that through the cry of the vocal melody.

waxhead - Disco Etiquette     Rock, Punk, Psychedelic, Garage 16/04/2019
Waxhead are a unique surf/ psychedelic rock quartet who grew up surfing together in Byron Bay. The band consists Finny, Shaggy, Shrecky and Froggy
Waxhead's new single 'Disco Etiquette' is a grimy post punk song with a goofy outlook on alienation that makes you want to dance. Lyrically the song tells a tale about a boy who feels like he's from "another planet" and a girl who wants to be a disco queen and their search for trying to fit into the world.

Citizen of the World - Deep Blue Eyes     Rock, Folk, Pop 16/04/2019
Citizen Of The World have developed a sound that finds itself untethered and free. Sincere and heartfelt, the band have evolved from a more folk-based sound to fully-fledged modern indie.
"All our songs are inspired by things that happen to us. Deep Blue eyes is about what we all hope to achieve: the thrill of discovering the person we know will be the one. It’s a good thing we wrote this song rather quickly, turns out the person the song was written about wasn’t the one after all…!"
