Rocket Science - Chasing Rainbows     Rock, Garage, Psychedelic, Punk 13/06/2019
It’s been 10 years since their last album and they’re back from outer-space: tougher, wilder and sharper than ever. Australia's favourite garage-psych-punks have a new single and it's a ripper.
‘Chasing Rainbows’ is the first cut off the upcoming album; Snake and it’s a killer. Kicking off dirty with an unmistakable Rocket Science swing. The first half is a tense playoff, guitar frantically stabs through an unrelenting, rolling rhythm section, overlaid with snarling vocals before exploding into a psychedelic, freak-out ending. Don’t be scared, it’s awesome.

Salt and Steel are two fiery and passionate female performers whose earthy, rock, blues and roots inspired sound has been garnishing a growing tribe of committed followers.
The Beast, The Devil and Me is a representation of the fire element. With an unapologetic grinding rock sound, this song diverts from their previous release with a loud, guitar-driven call to embrace the wildness within. Featuring grunting guitars and a chorus of female vocals yelling ‘you won’t slow me down’, the message screams loudly about channeling ones inner fire.

Scarlet Drive - I Just Think That You're Cute     Rock, Funk, Pop, Punk 13/06/2019
Michael, Michael and Maddey deliver nostalgic anthems with youthful vigour and the freshness of their own unique blend of punk, funk and reggae.
Deviating slightly from their staple blend, 'I Just Think That You're Cute' is the product of countless sleepless nights at the studio, and Scarlet Drive's foray into the world of upbeat indie pop with a tongue-in-cheek poke at surface-level relationships.

Summer Flake - In The Dark     Rock 13/06/2019
Summer Flake is the moniker of Melbourne based musician Steph Crase.
'In The Dark' is the first single to be lifted from the forthcoming record. The song's playful drum breaks and big bold guitar riffs belie panicked rumination on how to find a way out of the gloom - a motif repeated throughout the album.

The Barklys - Second Time Around     Rock, Alternative Country 13/06/2019
Melbourne band who write and play original songs in a roots/rock/alt country vein. Big on harmonies. Powerful female lead vocal and strong instrumentation.

The Beautiful Monument - Reaper     Rock, Punk, Rock, Pop 13/06/2019
The Beautiful Monument have made it their purpose to express their life experience through music, and to share those terrifying but all too familiar thoughts with the world.
Lifted from their forthcoming album, "Reaper" is a deceptively vibrant rock that contrasts dark rock verses with soaring choruses. "Reaper" is a reflection on the first experience of loss and the grief that follows in its wake. It's a stark realisation of finality of death and how things will never be the same.

The Grogans - How Would You Know     Rock, Easy Listening 13/06/2019
The Grogans mainly focus on surf rock with hints of gutsy blues rhythms and dirty grunge/punk driving grooves as well as a cruisy laid-back reggae aspect to complete their sound.
The band wrote ‘How Would You Know’ after building a Tepee with some friends, intending to portray the feeling of hanging with people close to you and enjoying spending time together “Let these days drag on for hours, as the sun rays make us browner”. Band uses catchy melodies mixed with the meaningful lyrics to pass this onto the listener

The Immaculate Crows were a Brisbane alternative band that played in 1982 and 1984. They were founded by Bruce Neilsen (guitarist, songwriter) and Chris Allen(drums). Bruce named the band.
The song was inspired by a night with a girl called Fiona.
