Arrows

Arrows Forming in Brisbane, Arrows are post-rock balladeers without a filter. Unconventional “rock” instrumentation over bombastic / receding harmonies. Desperately reaching vocals which roll ceaselessly between pop & depravity. Round this out with a strong DIY ethic, dive-in. First a self-released demo in 2006, following with a 12” split the year after, Arrows soon became [...]

Bec Stevens

Bec Stevens Bec Stevens is an old soul. Not in the dust-and-mothballs fashion, but in that tugging, goosebump-raising way - something wholly familiar yet captivating and un-pinpointable. Her voice is a trigger, prompting reflections of your own life while she brazenly steps us through her own. All of it's there in its worn grooves, its [...]

Blueline Medic

It didn’t take long for people to realise that while this may still be categorised as an ’indie rock’ band, it’s most certainly a full step beyond. With one of the most devout fan bases in the country, it’s easy to see why when Blueline Medic’s energy and master execution have sustained since day one.Forming […]

Braid

Brief Habits

Brief Habits The debut full length from Brief Habits refuses to be pinned down, rather the record spans the sonic spectrum with an impressive collection of power pop song craft, steadfast hooks and piano interwoven textural soundscapes. Self-recorded by the band in a small industrial practice space on the outskirts of Northern Brisbane, Dan Rogan’s distinctive vocal [...]

Caspian

Caspian On their new full-length record, Dust and Disquiet, Caspian is saying something. “We’re wide awake now,” we hear in the album’s dead center, track five’s “Run Dry.” This isn’t the first time Caspian has sung a line of discernible lyrics, but the clarity—in the tone and thematic sentiment of both the track and the [...]

Ceres

Ceres Earnest alternative-rock music seems to be a contradiction from the direction popular music has strayed as of late. The need for genuine lyrics, purposeful direction and accessible melodies has been long overdue. CERES have crafted an ideological throwback to the days when music was charged with hope and contained a much-needed brand of sincerity. [...]

Charge Group

Charge Group Charge Group are a cinematic art rock band from Sydney that formed from the ashes of Purplene in 2007. They create music that is at once dynamic, atmospheric, powerful, scorchingly loud, abnormally quiet and increasingly as difficult to categorise as Werner Herzog. After the years that followed their 2008 debut 'Escaping Mankind', Charge [...]

Crusch

Crusch For CRUSCH, their hearts reside firmly in their hometown of Melbourne, VIC. It's where brothers Nick and Michael Thomas first started playing shows together, and where much of their earliest musical influences stemmed from. Benjamin Searle bonded with the brothers at local shows, with CRUSCH then forming when Dan New arrived. Together the group tap into [...]

Deafcult

Deafcult DEAFCULT were the kids back in high school that invested heavily in their alone time. Music, records, movies, zines, books, comics, skateboarding, writing, drawing, high brow, and low brow all took precedence over any alternative. It was always going to be tough finding likeminded characters. Years out, many bands and numerous projects between, DEAFCULT [...]

Eleventh He Reaches London

Fourteen Nights At Sea

Fourteen Nights At Sea Fourteen Nights At Sea has fashioned a third full-length album of tremendous beauty and depth, played with a dark, wistful restraint throughout. Minor Light is eerie and iridescent, composed and captured with mesmerising attention to detail, guided by the band’s most intricate and intimate guitar passages to date, full of delicate [...]

Hey Mercedes

Jamie Hay

Newcastle native come embraced Melbourne resident Jamie Hay has spent most of his days participating in music. From the politically wrought Conation, the magnetic anthems of Fear Like Us to the recently departed Melbourne rock stalwarts A Death In The Family and everything in between. While recent years have found Hay sharing the stage with […]

Keeskea

Keeskea Keeskea (case-kay-ah) is the “lofty and delicate, yet fiercely present and potent” (Laundry Echo) project of Brisbane solo artist Vanessa Marousopoulos. With a unique gift for making sense of what’s tangled, Marousopoulos unwinds sensitive emotions to their threadbare state with her vintage Harmony Alden H45 Stratotone and whisper-close vocals, couching them in gentle electronic [...]

Kevin Devine

Luke Howard

Luke Howard Australian Music Prize twice-longlisted composer Luke Howard has been described as “absolutely heavenly” (Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC Radio 6) and his music as “an ambient masterclass” (Musos’ Guide), but no words can fully capture the potency of Howard’s enthralling compositions. A pianist since childhood, Howard has scored films and performed with artists as [...]

Lymbyc Systym

Lymbyc Systym are brothers Jared and Michael Bell, originally from Arizona, but since relocated to Brooklyn, NY. An amazingly adept and musical force, far beyond the inaccuracies of the “post rock” tag they often get slagged down by. Relentless in touring, unmatched in motivation, and highly organized, this is the type of band that you […]

Oh Messy Life

The singer / guitarist of the now finished Staying At Home began OML shortly before the bands split in late 2005, recording and playing the rare show under the Oh Messy Life title. In April 2006, a collection of early demo recordings produced in the previous year were released. This record, 1+1–1=1, was the first […]

Owen

The impetus for Owen was a direct result of the demise of American Football. Up to that point, having been associated with a number of bands, Mike Kinsella sought a project where he could have complete creative control over all aspects including songwriting, recording, album artwork, and overall artistic direction. When it came time to […]

Purplene

Sophie Hutchings

Sophie Hutchings Australian pianist Sophie Hutchings has been compared with the likes of Max Richter, Dustin O'Halloran and Nils Frahm. Over the years, Sydney-based Sophie has amassed a deeply impressive body of work, releasing four albums to date and receiving critical praise worldwide. MOJO Magazine declared her work "stirring, vigorous, [and] grandly melodic", and her debut album Becalmed (Preservation) [...]

The City On Film

In 1997 during an extended break in between Braid tours, the band’s vocalist / guitarist Robert Nanna began playing shows and recording under the title of The City On Film, but never taking it too seriously. Throughout Braid calling it a day and both the formation and demise of Hey Mercedes to follow, Robert juggled […]

The Leap Year

Here’s what I know about The Leap Year… they hail from the world’s most isolated city, they play picturesque indie-rock and have an undisclosed affinity with 1980’s television commercial jingles. Multiple vocals with a distinctly Australian soul, The Leap Year formed in 2006 after longstanding relationships between friends Paul Haimes (bass), Chris Reimer (drums), Rob […]

This Will Destroy You

This Will Destroy You Since 2004, This Will Destroy You has been forging some of the world’s most brutal, dynamic, and precariously visceral instrumental rock.
