New Single: Twerps ‘Back To You’

Melbourne outfit, Twerps, have just released a quaint little tune that had my toes tapping and head nodding before I even realised what was going on. They’ve also paired the track with a beautiful film clip that shows quintessential suburbia in an almost warm glow. Catchy riffs and relaxed harmonies, as well as tight melodies make […]

This in itself is a huge feat for a festival that has never compromised their beliefs and values (BYO, no commercial sponsors, no dickheads, one stage etc), but their first lineup announcement is […]

Sugar Mountain first lineup announcement!

“HOLY SHIT,” sums up my not so eloquent reaction to the first announcement for the 2015 edition of Melbourne’s Sugar Mountain. Jam packed with stellar acts, this lineup is the curveball we’ve been waiting for! Headlining the event is the one and only Nas who will be performing the iconic Illmatic in full. They’ve also […]

Single Review: MOVEMENT x HAIM “My Song 5″

By Cameron Webley Modular People’s Australian trio Movement seem to be impressing everyone, everywhere. They dropped back through Australia last month after extensive UK, Europe and US touring for a string of sold out shows in Sydney and Melbourne, then once again shot off overseas to support BANKS on her sold-out US tour.

Live Review: DMA’s, October 2nd @ The Brightside

Words by James Tait. Stepping into Brisbane’s The Brightside, it’s not surprising to see it packed out. DMA’s national tour has sold out most venues, the band never more popular after a 2014 that has been nothing short of supersonic.

Interview: KELE
