Single of the Day: Loon Lake “Radiator” (2015)

We’re really going to miss Loon Lake. But it softens the blow when they’re giving us an entire new album as well as doing an extensive tour before they disband. “Radiator” is lifted off their upcoming album, recorded throughout this year, which is set for an independent release in September, right before their farewell tour. It’s set to be a bittersweet time, but get yourself ready with “Radiator” here:

One of Melbourne's finest, Loon Lake say farewell with the "Final Wave" national tour

Say it isn't so!! After six long years of rocking Melbourne's music scene, Loon Lake are saying goodbye. With a national tour commencing from October 9th, the band state the tour is simply a way of winding up their achievements over the past six years.

Loon Lake Return With New Single 'Surfin' and Launch Shows!

After an unfortunate hiatus, Loon Lake are back with the ever-so-catchy ‘Surfin’ and a wave of new confidence. Inspired by the band’s want to get back to their carefree roots, the single is a thrashing party number inspired by a bunch of mates hanging out and jamming to music they love. And one thing’s for sure, this is one infectiously catchy song. To top it all off Loon Lake are performing two intimate shows this March to launch Surfin, at Melbourne’s Shebeen and Sydney’s Brighton Up Bar.

Festival Review: Groovin’ The Moo - Prince of Wales Showground, Bendigo (03.05.14)

The cruel upbeat tone of my alarm sounded at 6:00AM on Saturday morning. As I momentarily considered face planting into the pillow and ignoring its sole purpose, I realised it was time to get Groovin'. The train ride in was long and tumultuous; aisles laden with inappropriately dressed festival-goers and a lone local tennis player, seemingly unimpressed by the inane amount of extra bodies that occupied her usually quiet Saturday morning train. Upon arrival the sun was shining, but our future looked bleak. Dark clouds were rolling in. We were surrounded. Luckily enough, the Groovin' gods smiled upon us, keeping us dry (for the most part).

On the first leg of Groovin the Moo's 10th anniversary tour punters were treated to the very best from the likes of The Presets, Disclosure, The Jezabels, and Thundamentals. Lauren Connelly was there and brings you these photos.

the AU interview: Simon Nolan of Loon Lake (Melbourne) on the 'Good Times' tour, kicking off in Adelaide tonight!

The last time I saw Loon Lake, they were tearing the Rocket Bar up in Adelaide. Bodies were sweaty. The room was smoky. The music was dope. We all ended up on the rooftop doing shots and continuing the party. Tonight, the Melbourne boys have one upped themselves and have a gig at my old stomping ground at the Adelaide Unibar, which also serves as the first date of their 'Good Times Tour'. I caught up with guitarist Simon Nolan recently and got the lowdown on the upcoming live shows and their recent festival runs for 2014.

Festival Review: Big Day Out - Arena Joondalup, Perth (02.02.14)

Big Day Out and Perth have had a pretty strained relationship in recent years, with venue changes, reduced line-ups and poor ticket sales. This year was no different, with Blur dropping out, and continued tensions between organisers and local councils prompting a last minute change in venues and the announcement by AJ Maddah that it would be the last time the event would come to Perth.

The Big Day Out rolled in to Adelaide on its traditional last Friday in January on another scorching 40 degree day. With the decision to move away from the Royal Adelaide Showgrounds, many people were longing for the shade of the grandstand, but the new location proved easy to move around and a good size for the crowd on the day. The bands put on some fantastics sets, despite the heat and the crowd did a great job taking care of themselves and those around them, making it another fantastic Big Day Out in Adelaide. Hopefully there will be many more!

The Presets, Disclosure, Dizzee Rascal and more to feature on the 2014 Groovin' The Moo festival!

A huge mix of international and Australian acts will be travelling from new addition Oakbank in South Australia on April 25, around to venues in Maitland, Canberra, Bendigo, Townsville and Bunbury this year, bringing some world-class live performances to some hungry, hungry music fans.

Live Review: Loon Lake - Rocket Bar, Adelaide (18.10.13)

It’s a busy night in Adelaide, for a Friday. There’s a film festival on up the east end of the city and tonight, I’m rushing back into the CBD from the Adelaide Hills, where I was at a screening for one of these features. Down at Rocket Bar, there’s a sold out crowd waiting for some lads from Melbourne to play one summery set of tunes, right in time with this swing of warmer weather.

Live Review: Loon Lake - Howler, Melbourne (11.10.13)

Standing in great anticipation, I geared myself up for a night of electronic grooves, catchy chord progressions and teenage groupies dancing way too ferociously. Loon Lake’s down-right infectious performance at Howler obliterated my already high expectations.

Live Review: Loon Lake - Spectrum, Sydney (09.10.13)

Loon Lake are touring to promote their debut album Gloamer, and they brought their fun, energetic pop along to the Spectrum in Sydney to celebrate.

Album Review: Loon Lake - Gloamer (2013 LP)

The wait is over folks, Loon Lake’s debut LP has arrived and it does not disappoint. Gloamer sees a new progression for the Melbourne five-piece, integrating a bevvy of musical influences to create that infectious pop-drenched euphony we’ve all come to know and love. An all-encompassing sound, Gloamer is rife with innovative pangs of electronica, crashing rhythms, groovin’ indie-pop fillers and those signature guitar riffs that get you moving and shaking.
