BAND OF HORSES - CASUAL PARTY (Universal Music Australia)
After their rad tune ‘The Funeral’ exceeded 90 million streams, Band of Horses have some high expectations to be filled for 2016. To get everyone pumped for their next release in June ‘Why are you OK’ and for their gig at Splendour in the Grass in July, Band of Horses have given us a sneak-preview of what’s in stall with their fresh single ‘Casual Party’. The tune is sure to make you get your sway on with its powerful, indie-pop sound, with what sounds like a Manchester Orchestra influenced twist on the side.
BASKERVILLAIN - WISH YOU WERE GONE (Bedlam Records)
Brisbane's favourite blues-rock four piece has brought us some euphoric, ambient blues with melancholy, heartfelt lyrics and an added punchy surprise at the end. It's been nearly a year since the release of their critically acclaimed Modern Lows EP, but Baskervillain are finally back and boy have they brought a thunderstorm with them! Having already supported the likes of Harts, The Murlocs,
The Belligerents, Lurch & Chief and Moses Gunn Collective as well as playing at up-and-coming boutique festivals Red Deer and Jungle Love over the past 12 months, 2016 is looking very bright indeed!
SUNROSE – STRANGE BEHAVIOUR (Independant)
Out of the mystical and exotic mountains of Byron Bay, a four-piece psychedelic bunch of groovers have emerged to hypnotize you with their debut single, 'Strange Behaviour'.
The song is a five-minute time warp blending heavy riffs and catchy melodies into an outro that submerges you underwater then leaves you imploding in space. Having been recorded and mixed at Meridian Receiver Studio and mastered locally at Soundworthy, Sunrose are ready to blast their new tune into your eardrums.
STILLWATER GIANTS – MONTAGE (Inertia Access)
The beloved Perth boys have kept to their established, well-loved vibe with their latest single (which just so happens to be the second release from their debut LP, after the reveal of ‘Patience’). Warped synths, bending & biting guitars, upbeat vocal hooks, and an undeniable sense of warm, fuzzy nostalgia with just a touch of longing - it's all there.
THE CHERRY DOLLS - WASTED (First Love Records)
Melbourne rockers, The Cherry Dolls have just added another release to their collection since their PEARLS EP at the end of last year (in which was produced by Alex Markwell from the Delta Riggs).
60’s-inspired five-piece consisting of vocalist Josh Aubry, dual guitarists Jacob Kagan & Jim Stirton, bassist Brendan West and drummer Thomas Van der Vliet, are releasing their forthcoming EP, 'Lone Palm' in May.
JENNY BROKE THE WINDOW - AIRPORT LOVE (Independant)
The indie-poppers from Sydney, created by life-long friends Sam Lath, Matt Lath, Matt McCaffery, and Joel van Gastel, have amassed well over 2 million streams online and reached an audience well beyond their humble hometown in the span of just a few releases.
Following on from the recent success of radio hits ‘Skinny Dip’ and ‘Black Skeleton’ the boys will be releasing an EP in mid 2016 before travelling to the UK to continue writing their much anticipated debut album.
ROLLING BLACK OUTS COASTAL FEVER - CAREER (Ivy League Records)
Melbourne’s Rolling Blackout C.F returns with new single, ‘Career’. Released as part of a limited edition double A side on Record Store Day 2016, the track comes off the back of a sea of international accolades for their debut mini-LP ‘Talk Tight’, including an 8.0 review from indie music bible Pitchfork.
Born from late night jam sessions in singer/guitarist Fran Keaney’s bedroom, Melbourne five-piece RBCF stand out even among the fertile scene of Australian jangle. Their rich, poppy guitar melodies with propulsive rhythm have already earned them a wealth of international buzz, with the likes of Stereogum and Spin singing their praises. With support and enthusiasm growing steadily with each new track, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are set to run wild over the new year.
