POND - Sixteen Days     Rock, Psychedelic, Pop 09/10/2018
POND unveil their new single Sixteen Days via Spinning Top Records|Caroline. The psychedelic space romp will feature on the Fremantle five-piece’s eighth studio album scheduled for release in Autumn 2019.

Rackett - Tried To Quit     Rock, Pop, Garage, Grunge 09/10/2018
“You can hear a marked progression in each of the songs you’ve uploaded - sharper songwriting, tighter playing. Spice Girls meets Black Sabbath indeed!” Triple J, Gemma Pike
Opening with a fantastic distorted bass line which leads into a chugging guitar line that brings extra heaviness to the track, the instrumentation driving ‘Tried To Quit’ is full of chaos itself; a fitting representation of the back and forth of the song’s narrative.

Slow Fades - Leave The Canyon     Rock, Pop 09/10/2018
Slow Fades are a widescreen indie outfit led by songwriter Ben Birchall (Klinger) and multi-instrumentalist Dave Rogers (Ben Lee). They release their debut EP Canyon Songs on November 15.
One part E Street Band bombast, one part Laurel Canyon sweetness, ‘Leave The Canyon’ is a meditation on failure with a chorus that won’t quit, set poolside in the Hollywood Hills in the summer of 1973.

Syntax Error - The Unknown     Rock, Garage, Psychedelic, Experimental 09/10/2018
Psychedelic post-rock for the apocalypse.
The Unknown is a psychedelic stomper that could be making them dance in Berlin or even in Valhalla. Ghosts crowd the dance floor as electro spirits flying round the echoing walls. ‘Low’ Bowie shares a joke with Ian Curtis, though no-one laughs. The momentum of the track is delirious, the perpetual motion of the darkest rock’n’roll.

East Denistone - All My Crooked Bones     Rock, Psychedelic, Atmospheric 08/10/2018
Marcus created the East Denistone as a coping mechanism, creative outlet, a search for validation to feed an overzealous ego, a learning tool, and even at times a reluctant obligation.
Recorded as part of the 'While You Still Draw Breath' debut EP from East Denistone, 'All My Crooked Bones' encapsulates the dogged determination and hard headed stubbornness that people wish for during times of great tribulation. There is an underlying theme of overcoming one's inner defeatism that gradually lifts the song throughout its progression.

The Phosphenes - No Through Road     Rock, Pop, Garage 08/10/2018
The Phosphenes create imperfect pop songs from eclectic ingredients that with catchy hooks, upbeat rhythms, quirky humour and lush vocal harmonies, stick in your head and rewire your brain.

We’ve toured a bunch over the years and travelled the country numerous times playing shows. We’ve been lucky enough to meet some amazing people on the way and unfortunately, we’ve also had the unfortunate experience of being acquainted with some sociopaths. This song is our take on the mind of the latter.

Fragile Animals - Landing     Rock, Pop 06/10/2018
Sunshine Coast three-piece Fragile Animals make sweetly melancholic indie rock with catchy-but-sombre melodies that move with an effortless glide.
An upliftingly, airy offering from their forthcoming sophomore EP, 'Landing' is part indie-pop, part shoegaze paragon. Luscious layering of slow burning choruses and intricate guitar melodies, 'Landing' draws inspiration from the difficulty of letting go.

Kaloptic - Drown     Rock, Grunge, Garage, Punk 06/10/2018
Kaloptic’s sound is based on a big guitar/ rhythm section working together towards a massive dirty sound. There is a clear 90’s grunge influence and use of the loud/soft ethos.

Indie rock from Sydney. Nameless Town is first single from forthcoming album 'What (do) you see' on Half a Cow records. Recorded by j walker from Machine Translations.
An off kilter indie pop song, featuring j walker from Machine Translations on guitar.

It begins with a locomotive beat and unexpected bassline. Layered melodies and counter-melodies hover long enough to catch the listener’s ear before retreating into silence or dissonance. Ethereal vocals float over occasionally jagged guitars, singing about distance and space.

Other tracks by Key Out:  Colours (b-side)
Moana - Dracula     Rock, Goth, Grunge 06/10/2018
Avant-garde art rock outfit edging around something otherworldly. Shamanic poetry with psychedelic melodies, grungy guitar and propulsive rhythms, Moana crafts pagan prayers set to the heartbeat of the world.
The song was inspired by Bram Stoker's novel but it's also about the idea of things that seduce you in life that you maybe get lost in. The idea of something draining you in life and you don't realise until later that it was – kind of like being a victim of a vampire.
