Martin James - Lightning Bolt on the Back of an Ant     Rock, Acoustic, Alternative Country 02/08/2019
Martin James is a singer songwriter from Hobart, Tasmania and his brand of acoustic songs certainly carry a deep and intense mood.
The track is a hard reflection on love and it's flawed participants. Martin James sings "everything will be ok", but with an undertow of melancholy in his voice he sounds resigned to a hard and long road ahead. The guitar echoes and testifies to Martin's every sentiment sounding like an old friend that knows exactly what he means.

MID CITY - Fake Friends Forever     Rock 02/08/2019
MID CITY are a force; their riffs are immediate, their choruses anthemic. Now they're back, and they’ve brought with them their most visceral and hard-hitting track yet -'Fake Friends Forever'.
Singer Joel Griffith elaborates on the lyrical inspiration, asking “When did the wider world become so full of bluster and bullsh*t? Anyone else seeing straight through the facade of false bravado and fake friends? These days it seems easier than ever to pretend your way to the top. I wonder what's left when you get there.”

SODA - Beautiful Anxiety     Rock 02/08/2019
Charming, energetic and unpredictable; a few words you can use to describe Adelaide’s hottest up and coming band, SODA.
It is an attempt to capture the feelings present in the most important moments in our lives, things that we should be so happy about - but we just can’t shake the knots that churn within our stomachs and the uncertainty of whether or not you’ll just fall apart. Then knowing we should be happy and eventually overcome the thoughts.

"Saviour" is an haunting song, describing an independent female who, after being hurt, decides to take charge and not open up to anyone else, apart from casual physical connections.

Brunswick West, is an ode to a neighbourhood where many an aging Melbourne hipster has taken a crack at settling down and finally growing up. The song describes a near-encounter with love in the form of a drunken one night stand. The event triggers the age-old, heart-wrenching question: Was it a passing thing, or is something really happening?

We All Drive's new single 'Kingscliff', which is named after the town where the duo grew up, is a simple, yet rocking piece of music containing lyrics which pay tribute to the people who gave them the best memories in life.

It’s a love song, dedicated to anti-depressants. It’s about being anxious and scared of the future. If there’s one thing to take from ‘Loxalate’, it’s that mental health meds are nothing to be ashamed of. Sometimes you've gotta do what you’ve gotta do to get better.
