Regular Band - Snow White     Rock, Grunge 03/06/2019
Regular Band are a pretty punk, pretty grunge and pretty loud Nirvana-esque alt-rock four piece forged from the safest, most boring suburbs in Brisbane city, Australia.
“Snow White,” the first song written in collaboration with their newest member, Felix Lindgren (originally from The Dollar Bill Murrays), sees the band exploring new ‘sonic territory’.

Written when emotions were high in the band, the song invites the listener to delve deep into their emotions and come out head banging on the other side.

Wizard Rose - Wizard Rose     Rock, Blues, Metal 03/06/2019
Wizard Rose are a force unto themselves, that belies their youth, producing a sound that harks back to - without emulating - the era of Led Zeppelin and Rush.
Spoken as the most aggressive, hard hitting & dominating track upon the album. Wizard Rose writes a story of an unfaithful lady, She’s the lady with the Wizard Rose. Expressing an energy & essence of one of the best tracks on the album, Wizard Rose is a big hitter & an in your face piece of music.

Other tracks by Wizard Rose:  Black Knight
Daisy Brains - Sunshine     Rock, Grunge 02/06/2019
Gold Coast four piece, playing their take on the grunge side of indie. Influences include the Walking Who, Dope Lemon, Cage the Elephant, and Wolf Alice.
The first release with rhythm guitarist Ellie Hopley lending her vocal abilities to the mix, with the final cut a blend between silver-tongued and that classic rasp we’ve come to expect from the group. Don’t be fooled by the stripped back open chords, if you’re a fan of loud crunchy guitars, you won’t be disappointed.

Twenty-four years after the release of their EP, veteran Brisbane rockers Chalk are back with the first single "The Sometimes Always" off their debut album The Quiet City.

Dead Before Breakfast - Haze     Rock 31/05/2019
Explosive riffs and energy with a technical edge, Dead Before Breakfast is progressive alt-rock loud and proud!
‘Haze’ is a tongue-in-cheek autobiography of the band’s trappings of inner-city existence, from the never-ending hospitality grind to the impulse leather jacket purchases which keep a 20-something in an endless cycle of being broke.

Taken from their upcoming album, ‘Rogue’, ‘Haze’ showcases the troublesome trio’s signature energy, combining angsty guitars with soaring hooks and intricate melodies.

Fyerfly - Golden Arrow (Instrumental)     Rock, Downbeat, Folk, Instrumental 31/05/2019
From the gentle mountain streams of Victoria, sensual sadcore songstress Fyerfly is captivating audiences with her mesmerising late-night intimacy.
This torch song tale tells of falling deeply in love, the pain of bad timing, making mistakes and eventually finding your peace in what you once shared.

‘Golden Arrow’ is a little bit gypsy-swing. It’s a dark and dramatic mix of acoustic, electric and bass guitar, piano and percussion fit for a soundtrack of building passion or disaster.

Straight off the back of the success of single "Catch a Wave" Mackay alternative rockers Ice City are back with another boisterous, grunge song "Mr Whippy"
Despite its name, the song has nothing to do with ice cream and everything to do with blaring guitars and melancholic nostalgia, with the band explaining that lead singer Jack Thompson wrote it after going through a rough patch in life.

Jonah Primo - Round My Neck     Rock, Psychedelic 31/05/2019
Indie multi-Instrumentalist Jonah Primo fuses complex vocal harmonies with a vintage rock sound. Jonah creates a smokey psychedelic brand of rock storytelling. Imagine Led Zeppelin and Tame impala's love child.
Round My Neck explores the mental implosion of a Renaissance king, although those who frequently self-sabotage will relate.

It features 8 layers of vocal harmonies, and the dynamic range of the track takes you on a journey through his rise and fall. The track has a distinctly smokey, vintage feel reminiscent of Pink Floyd and Zeppelin.

Magnus - Humbugger     Rock, Experimental, Goth 31/05/2019
Best described as "Oddly Timed Stoner Jazz Rock with a Dash of Goth"
Humbugger" treads the line between the head-banging of a live show and a psych rock bliss out. Lyrically written as a personal call to arms and a reminder to be yourself.


Skilton Avenue - Tomorrow     Rock, Acoustic, Roots 31/05/2019
Hailing from Newcastle on Australia's east coast, Skilton Avenue are a passionate band who channel their innermost thoughts and feelings into music that people can relate to.

The Insufferable Paul Scott - Sheila     Rock 31/05/2019

The Tipsy Scholars - Hey Friend     Rock, Folk, Acoustic, Pop 31/05/2019

At different times of our lives we have struggled with the constructions on masculinity in Australia. Through the use of unaffected and honest lyrics, ‘Hey Friend’ aims to create a platform allowing for the open sharing of emotion, joy and vulnerability between friends.

Claiming It Anyway - Escape for Me     Rock, Blues, Garage, RnB 30/05/2019
CIA is Brisbane's youngest Rock n Roll trio comprised of the 3 brothers Curt Scott and Mitch Luxton! With a 13yr old explosive drummer, every song will have you hooked!
"Escape for me" is one of CIA's most recognizable classic rock riffs. Lyrically its an analogy based on witnessing friends and the people you are close with change their ways as they 'grow up' around you. Ultimately knowing there has to be a better way to 'escape' and wishing they would take more care of themselves...

This song is about someone who can never make their mind up... someone that's torn between two worlds.

The Sunken Sea - Blame     Rock, Jazz, Experimental 30/05/2019
Crooked, lush art rock emphasising emotional vulnerability in a vicious world.
Breaking stereotypes of male stoicism and emotional distance, The Sunken Sea aim to make music that highlights emotional honesty and vulnerability.

“Blame” explores responsibility for your actions, and the consequential loneliness that can take hold soon thereafter. Soft synths and languid, roomy strings bring about an air of heartache before the full band enters in a moment of thunderous catharsis.
