REVIEW: Tora, The Lansdowne – 12/9/19

Written by on 18 September 2019

If Jo (lead singer) isn’t one of the most energetic performers I’ve seen, period, then I don’t know what to believe. Jumping around, the passion was shot through the crowd via his body, a vessel that harnesses a form of expression not attained by most. Playing to a packed out Sydney crowd at the Lansdowne […]

Stand Atlantic share their vulnerability in latest album

Written by on 23 October 2018

The only way to float is to shed the secrets weighing you down, Stand Atlantic has learned. On Skinny Dipping, their debut album for Hopeless Records, the Sydney-based pop-rock trio has stripped down their souls and hidden nothing. Skinny Dipping follows the band’s 2017 EP, Sidewinder, which launched vocalist/guitarist Bonnie Fraser, guitarist David Potter and […]

Written by on 23 May 2018

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8917″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text] I was introduced to Hatchie last year after her breakout single Try was released and have been infatuated ever since. A masterful blend of vocal melodies and jangly guitar had myself and many others entranced by the Brisbane artist. Hatchie delivers a sweet dream-pop experience on Sugar & Spice EP through […]

Dan Sultan – ‘Killer Under A Blood Moon’

Written by on 22 May 2018

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8913″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]To me, a key word for Killer Under a Blood Moon would be reinvention. Dan Sultan plays on the original foundations of his recent album Killer with the input of some of Australian music’s most prominent figures on this new EP. At first glance, I thought each artist would compliment Sultan’s style […]

Written by on 11 May 2018

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8865″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text] Despite being the second album from the hip hop duo in two years, Orbit serves as a re-birth of the Sydney outfit Spit Syndicate. Where 2017’s One Good Shirt Had Us All Fly was a slick offering (4.5 stars), Orbit brings Jimmy Nice and Nick Lupi back to the independent space, releasing […]

DMA’s – ‘For Now’

Written by on 27 April 2018

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8651″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text] I’ve always been a fan of British music first and foremost. Ever since rock’n’roll crossed the pond from its birthplace in the US, the British truly mastered it into ways that culminated in groups as legendary as The Beatles all the way up to Radiohead – there’s something so beautiful about […]

Written by on 23 April 2018

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8644″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Earlier this month GUM dropped his fourth LP titled The Underdog, an immersive insight into “a day in the life of GUM.” For anyone unaware, GUM is the solo project of Jay Watson from Tame Impala and Pond. My favourite part of this album is the range of emotions it’s able to […]

Written by on 20 April 2018

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8597″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text] With a sound so uniquely haunting, Alison Wonderland swiftly became a true asset to the Australian music scene, and has outdone herself with her second album, Awake. Awake is the sound of Alison emerging from her own darkness. A mix of digital-pop and incendiary beats, the record sees Alison blaze new […]

Mastin – ‘Suitcase Of Stories’

Written by on 9 April 2018

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”8553″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text] Reece Mastin, who? The teenage bad-boy Reece Mastin who stole hearts across the country back on 2011’s X Factor is no longer. In his place stands Mastin, and with this reimaging came a new EP and sound. Not The Man For You was the lead single to introduce the EP, and from the […]
