Three of the country’s most impressive emerging acts - Argentina, Tokyo Denmark Sweden and Them Swoops – have joined forces for a tri-state tour along Australia’s east coast this October. The second ever Triple Treat Tour follows on from the original, which featured Millions, Nantes and Northeast Party House in February and March this year.
The night kicked off at The Zoo with Set Sail. The Sydney band absolutely blew me away! Another name randomly picked off a list, the band are indie pop at it’s finest. The three piece, with added bass, not only play stellar tunes, but are also well presented and put on one hell entertaining show.
