Shepparton Airplane - Like You     Rock 27/09/2018
Shepparton Airplane are from Melbourne and their album Almurta was heralded by The Australian as, “wiry lo-fi post-punk in the vein of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Minutemen and Fugazi.”
"Like You" is the third song lifted from the Shepparton Airplane's second album Almurta. The song perfectly captures the balance of the album's abrasive post-punk guitar sound, pounding rhythm section and highlights — without any fear — the band's craft of writing songs laden with memorable pop hooks.

Teenage Dads - Sunburnt     Rock, Pop 27/09/2018
With a unique variety of music, Teenage Dads take a modern spin on the psych pop/rock sounds from the 1960’s, noted for their charismatic performances and high energy.
Sunburnt is “about finally moving forward from an unhealthy relationship and feeling really really good about it, like dancing down the street vibes. We wanted to emulate a great feeling of joy through the music".

The Iron Eye - Conscience Cleaner     Rock 27/09/2018
The Iron Eye are a rock trio hailing from Brisbane, Australia. Having just returned from Tom Larkin's "Studios In The City", the band are preparing to unleash their next EP.
The Iron Eye's latest offering "Conscience Cleaner" is a frenetic 3 minutes of fuzzed-out, self-diagnosed destruction. Producer Tom Larkin described the trio's new sonic assault as sounding like "The Prodigy.. if they were a rock band." with a driving rhythm section flavoured with the tones of 90's Drum & Bass pulsating under Nick Lythall's punchy and energetic vocals.

The Pretty Littles - Hills Hoist     Rock, Garage 27/09/2018
The Pretty Littles are a four-piece garage rock band from Melbourne with a knack for creating yell-alongs that have seen them sell out venues across the country several times over.
"Hills Hoist is about an old man who wonders around his house doing really mundane things. I pictured my Nanna and Grandpas house in Ocean Grove. They were classic Grand Parents with a well stocked lolly jar, custard and diet lemonade in the fridge. Empty houses are always kind of dark when they used to have more people in it."

The Pretty Littles - Runnin Outta Steam     Rock, Garage 27/09/2018
The Pretty Littles are a four-piece garage rock band from Melbourne with a knack for creating yell-alongs that have seen them sell out venues across the country several times over.

Treehouses make music that both breaks your heart and patches it back up again. Lush female/male harmonies sit amongst a collage of spoken word, romantic synth swells and guitar lines.

Telling of the excited delirium of burgeoning relationships, OLD FRIENDS untangles our beautiful but complicated feelings, rising powerfully, rousing us to feel everything, as Treehouses’ music often does.

The Buoys - Arm Wrestle     Rock, Pop 26/09/2018
Equal parts sweet and savoury, The Buoys are going to fill your ear holes by way of unrelenting fuzzy guitar tones and honest raw lyrics.
"Arm Wrestle is about addressing the reality of a situation. I had to explore if my thoughts were rational, or if I was making things up in my head and self sabotaging. It’s an exploration of what it’s like to gaslight yourself, only to find out your gut was right and you weren’t paranoid after all.” - Zoe, The Buoys

100 - If I Give Myself     Rock, Punk, Grunge, Psychedelic 26/09/2018
Scuzzy, nimble, post punk quartet
Screeching guitars soaked in reverb, raw n heavy drumming and a hoarse vocal spitting blood and gravel over the lot of it, If I Give Myself is an object lesson in post-punk principle.

As A Rival - What We Got     Rock, Punk 26/09/2018
Beginning from an accumulation of bedroom demos, the plan for As A Rival was to be challenged musically and become a rival to what was on offer.
Pete Cerni, vocalist for the band, said that "It’s hard not to focus on the negative. It’s hard enough when it’s your own fight, but watching it happen to someone close to you can be debilitating and make you feel helpless. What We Got addresses the internal struggle that comes with failed attempts to try and comfort those in need"

Reliqa is the four piece alternative metal band that has been on the Central Coast, NSW scene for a year now. Their debut EP ‘Afterlight’ was released early 2018.
