Sally Chicane - Buy Me a Trophy     Rock, Punk 20/03/2019
We're a four piece punk/rock band hailing from Australia's capital. With a 50/50 split of male/female after welcoming our American ex-pat drummer Alicia, we make some great music together.
With a pinch of reggae for an intro, "Trophy" (as we affectionately call it) soon launches into it's pop/punk vibe. It's a tongue in cheek song about taking leisure pursuits too seriously.

Last Lions - Sleep Forever     Rock, Punk, Garage, Grunge 20/03/2019
Alt punk from Perth, for fans of Smith Street, Hockey Dad & Slowly Slowly.

moonglue - DSM-V     Rock 20/03/2019
frenetic hooks, thick vocal melodies and obscure sound manipulation. moonglue is a psychrock project where guitars are played like pianos
DSM-V is another sonic experiment; an attempt to turn a straight up rock n roll song into something odd, dizzying and synthetic. Listen closely for stilted delays and ear-churning digital noises. Lyrically, the song describes the confusion one may feel when offered an odd mental illness diagnosis by a GP who has known you for all of 15 minutes.

Good Pash - A Yacht in Sydney Harbour     Rock, Folk 18/03/2019
Sydney four piece bringing the slacker rock vibes. Catchy guitar melodies, check. Sarcastic stream of consciousness vocals, check. Casually hitting the fuzz pedal for the rocking chorus, check.
Whimsical tune about living in share houses and being young with a big ego and doing whatever you want. The tone is lighthearted and a little bit nasty, with bright crackling rhythm guitar and smooth gentle lead. A song to make you feel hopeful, nostalgic, and a little bit like you’re being made fun of.
