Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
John Kennedy - Swampland     Rock 27/05/2019
John Kennedy’s new album celebrates a golden era of Australian independent music. Kennedy compiled a list of classic indie songs from The Go-Betweens, The Triffids, The Scientists and many more.
This Scientists signature tune, re-imagined by John and his band, really delivers with an authentic treatment featuring the same grungy, swampy, bluesy rock lines with plenty of dirty guitar and vocals.

Other tracks by John Kennedy:  Lee Remick  -  St Kilda to Kings Cross
Robert Jeffery - Don't Give Them Any Reaction     Rock, Retro, Pop, Garage 27/05/2019
Robert Jeffery writes pop rock tunes in Coffs Harbour, NSW. Influenced by Brian Wilson and modern heavyweights Arctic Monkeys, old and new coming together are a staple of his work.
Don’t Give Them Any Reaction is an expression of frustration at the forces in society constantly urging people to take a side. It questions the intentions of those forces and encourages listeners to step out of the echo-chamber and reflect on their own beliefs.

LETHAL - Fight For Your Freedom     Rock, Pop 26/05/2019
LETHAL talks directly to the teen in all of us - heartbreaking lyrics supported by infectious melodies that stay in your head long after the fade out.
Fight For Your Freedom will surprise you. Beau's vocal delivery belies his tender age and combined with an almost transfixing drum pattern the song holds no punches and will leave you humming the riffs well after the song finishes.

Atticus Chimps - Your Direction     Rock, Grunge, Punk, Funk 25/05/2019
Alternative rock band influenced by funk, punk and grunge bands from the '90s and '00s. Heavy rock anthems that convey a message of dissatisfaction with authority an alienation from society
Filthy riffs and raspy vocals. Not the kind of track you want to listen to when driving on a road with a speed limit.

Kieren Walmsley - Whatever It Takes     Rock, Pop 25/05/2019
Hello, my name is Kieren and i'm a new artist and I love making music. My music are stories about my life and I hope you enjoy what I create.
This song is about my amazing boys and how as parents we will endure anything to make sure they are healthy and safe.

Other tracks by Kieren Walmsley:  Violet Eyes  -  Autumn Air
Atom - Parasite     Rock, Punk, Pop 24/05/2019
Harry Howard (Crime & The City Solution, These Immortal Souls, Harry Howard & The NDE), Edwina Preston (The Moll Flanders Band, Harry Howard & The NDE) Ben Hepworth (Repairs, Eastlink).
Second single off 'In Every Dream Home' (June 21). 'Parasite' is a menacing piece of synth pop, somehow evoking the slippery sexiness of Ultra era Depeche Mode and the frantic insistence of Pel Mel. Edwina Preston’s vocals reach out through coils of insidious layered synths and toxic, exigent guitar like a hand thrust up in a dark churning sea.

Ben Camden - Hope Of Love     Rock, Folk, Pop 24/05/2019
Ben Camden is a singer/songwriter with a deep and powerful baritone. Mixing folk, blues, surf and pop into an acoustic and electric mashup, his sound is enigmatic as his image.
Hope Of Love is a raw and honest song about being in love with an idea, not a reality. The song is built around a strumming acoustic guitar, with drums gaining momentum and intensity throughout the whole track. Tied together with a unique and soulful baritone vocal and a moody electric guitar riff.

GUS - Golden Kisses     Rock, Garage, Grunge, Punk 24/05/2019
Four Brisbane ratbags make tight, crafty gutter-pop with a blend of surf, punk, shoegaze, and psych influences.
"Alrighty GUS, you've dangled the carrot and I'll have a bite. This is some nourishing and fast paced indie rock." - Dave Ruby Howe

"Love the solid garage rock sound and coastal shoe gaze vocals. They're a little rough around the edges but perfection is not what you want here. It's gnarly attitude and GUS IS ATTITUDE." - Nkechi Anele

MOSS - ROCK GOD     Rock, Blues, Pop 24/05/2019
MOSS is a five (5) piece original Rock Band, writing social / political songs aimed to get messages important to us out there while you rock.
ROCK GOD has a foundation based on the fact that all MOSS members not only played their part in the creation of this song, but we all shared the same experience and emotion relating to the subject matter.

As with all the sentiments in our songs, ROCK GOD goes a little bit further in connecting us to a shared experience

Palace Of The King - One Of These Days     Rock 24/05/2019
Melbourne's Palace Of The King play four on the floor rock n roll with big guitars, bigger drums and the spirit of old school Oz Rock in their veins
One Of These Days is the first single from the as yet untitled new album from Melbourne rockers, Palace Of The King.

Having toured the world supporting 2018's Get Right With Your Maker, the band show no signs of slowing down with this belter of a rock track!

POTK are touring with Rose Tattoo in June

Reality Instructors - Reality Instructor     Rock, Punk 24/05/2019
Ritual outbursts of ham-fisted aggro-jangle and urgent suburbanite melodicism from Bland St, NSW 2131
Stylistically, the song packs the signature elements of Reality Instructors' sound into two and a half minutes of churning minor chords, hypnotic drums, pummeling bass and restless, searching melodies delivered by intertwining male/female vocals. Raw post-punk smarts in a power pop package.

Other tracks by Reality Instructors:  Everything Is Worse  -  Why Couldn't You Be Kind?
Seaside - Sycamore     Rock 24/05/2019
Emerging from the sparkling waters of beautiful Byron Bay, Seaside are four friends making indie music with a punchy, dream-pop sound.
"Sycamore" was inspired by a need to persevere through social anxiety and self doubt.

Life can put you in positions that make us uncomfortable, but the ever existing reminder of the Sycamore is that if we give ourselves a little self-love, we can make it through anything.

The Nicoteenagers - Black Lips     Rock, Grunge 24/05/2019
The Nicoteenagers are a four piece rock band hailing from Melbourne, projecting music with strength akin to Queens of the Stone Age and Muse.
‘Black Lips’ is an exploration of rhythmic melodies and intoxicating rock and roll from one of Melbourne’s best young bands to do it. Injecting enough swagger to make Queens of the Stone Age proud, The Nicoteenagers shine with ferocity on ‘Black Lips’, Drew Gardner’s vocals weaving in and out of rollicking guitars with smoke-like effect.

Tidal Peak - Lonely Spring     Rock, Atmospheric, Experimental 24/05/2019
The solo project of Kyle Lacko, making ethereal dreampop & shoegaze music with hints of romantic gothic darkwave & neo-psychedelia scattered around.
Lonely Spring is the opening track of the EP, characterised by a buildup of guitars that shimmer across the channels before being propelled by a drum machine and synth bursts. Dense and atmospheric, a track for fans of ethereal shoegaze and post-punk.

Other tracks by Tidal Peak:  Molecular (feat. Lucy Korts)  -  Nocturnal
Busseys - Lazy     Rock, Pop 23/05/2019
Busseys’ latest release ‘Lazy’ marks the start of a new sound for them, putting a stronger focus on melody while still maintaining the energy of their first tune ‘Crystal Gazer’.
Lazy is an alternative/pop-rock ballad with a powerful melody that expresses the heartfelt lyrics. The love song is backed by ambient sounding instrumentals pushing the emotional mood of the song.

Shining Bird - Who Are We     Rock, Folk, Alternative Country, Pop 23/05/2019
Shining Bird is an experimental pop band from the coastal town of Austinmer, NSW Australia.
"Who Are We" is a 9-minute epic, clearly marking a new direction for Shining Bird. Recorded live to tape, in a single take by Jez Player (The Pinheads), the track highlights the band's improvisational strengths and maturity.

The Cameramen - Pulse Connection     Rock, Pop 23/05/2019
A 4-piece from Adelaide, The Cameramen play progressive-pop songs based around guitar, piano and sax, with the baritone vocals of Richard Sallis at the forefront. Their new EP is here.
Pulse Connection is about being totally infatuated with someone. Written by Richard Sallis years ago, it has at long last been recorded by the full band. We've been playing Pulse Connection live for the past two years, and the driving beat has made it a bit of a set favourite.
Recorded in a church in the Adelaide Hills.

Other tracks by The Cameramen:  Warp
MADOJA - Society Jab     Rock 22/05/2019
Take a dash of Talking Heads, a chord or two from Fu Manchu and add a healthy dose of indie pop-rock and you have MADOJA.
Society Jab smashes it right out of the studio monitors! One of the funkiest bass riffs ever takes the listener straight to a rocking drum beat, perfectly timed guitar rhythms with clever and insightful lyrics topped off with a cool Memphis horn flavour...MADOJA is on fire with Society Jab!

Crocodylus - Ghosts     Rock, Garage 22/05/2019
Crocodylus return in a cloud of sweat and fury unleashing their new single ‘Ghosts’ before setting off around the country once again, this time in support of The Chats.
Grungy as hell, ‘Ghosts’ is everything fans have come to love about the well-toured trio – fuzzy guitars, hazy vocals, searing riffs, stomping rhythms. Premiered on triple j's Home and Hosed, 'Ghosts' lulls listeners into a ballad before quickly picking up speed into the raw and blistering chorus. One hundred percent energy, it sits neatly in their sweaty live show.

Dave Tonks & The Dream Machine - Sh*t On     Rock, News, Folk, Blues 22/05/2019
Australian Original Band covering various genre's. From Rock, Hard Rock, Soft Rock, Ballads, Folk, Country. All independent and so not being pigeon holed.
Shit On really is a protest song, it's a song that say's while you can have your say, I've had to have mine too and vice versa. Although it can encompass many social issues it remains pretty benign. Has there not been a time when anyone has thought...."Hey, I've been Sh*t On". "Oh no? I can't say That?"
