Sydney 4 piece hard rock band who have a big ballsy sound, which fans have likened to a heavier Foo Fighters with touches of Helmet and Shihad.

The Dead Heads are a mid-fi band from the southern Highlands. They play an eclectic mix of 60’s hippie flip to 90’s scrungy grungy pop grunge, quite loud at gigs.
When I’m Dead is an upbeat spaced out pop rock grunge song. It was recorded in a bedroom, with nothing but the dead heads lacklustre recording know-how and enthusiasm. It’s an experimental raw song that with killer melody, guitar riffs and minimal drums.

Passerby acts as both album opener and a lens onto the band’s newfound emphasis on melody and groove. It’s the foundation song of Black Rabbits; the artistic breakthrough that the songwriters had to have before they could build the proverbial walls and ceiling.

Rain Party - Stay     Rock 08/08/2012
Rain Party are a female fronted indie rock band from Melbourne. Their songs dragging all manner of sounds from the shared love of sparkling psychedelia and forbidden deeds.
About the process of letting go of someone I loved. Someone once described it to me as the relationship dance, when one person tries to leave and the other won't let go, then the roles change over and it's the opposite way around. It continues until the relationship finally dissolves.

Other tracks by Rain Party:  Caught In A Daze  -  Whisper

Folk Rock Singer Songwriter Guitarist whose songwriting comes from a time long ago and far away .... socially conscious, thought provoking, crafty folk songs are his stock and trade.
