Live Review: The Aussie BBQ ft. Flyying Colours + Millions + Klo + Tora and more - Hoxton Square, London (17.05.15)

Pictured: Klo

Sunday in London saw the return of The Aussie BBQ - the live initiative of our music export body Sounds Australia. Hundreds of music fans - both locals and expats - came out for the event which saw over twenty Australian artists performing on two stages over ten hours at the Hoxton Bar and Grill in Shoreditch. It was a chance for us to see well established artists like Safia and Remi an become acquainted with some newer talent, some of whom are now based here in the UK.

Live Review: Ball Park Music + Millions + Pluto Jonze - The Astor Theatre, Perth (24.10.14)

There’s a strange pessimism embedded in most music fans when it comes to their favourite bands releasing new material. Will it be as good, will it be the same, has the novelty worn off. I think it’s safe to say that after the past couple of years Ball Park Music have well and truly left this awkward phase and are a musical force to be reckoned with. Bringing insurmountable amounts of energy to their live shows there is not a dull moment as their Trippin’ the Light Fantastic tour arrived in Perth on Friday night.

Live Review: Ball Park Music + Millions + Pluto Jonze - The Gov, Adelaide (21.10.14)

Ball Park Music are one of those bands who've always been..there. They've been dominating the Australian live circuit for ages now and for a while there, you could've put money on the Brisbanites being on any touring festival during the summer/New Year period. Currently, Ball Park Music are taking the 'Trippin' The Light Fantastic Tour' around the country and have been pulling large numbers with each stop. Their first of two Adelaide shows was testament to the force they've become as a band.

Millions announce the 'For Your Leisure and Pleasure Tour' for November & December!

Brisbane's Millions, currently on tour with Ball Park Music, have today announced a headline tour of their own, set to kick off in Adelaide this November. The album tour for the band's debut record Max Relax will see the four-piece on the road until mid-December with the talented High-Tails also along for the ride. The record, released a few months ago now, has seen the band build on strong foundations established on previous EPs and has been received well by fans and the newcomers who will have seen them in recent live settings.

Album Review: Millions - Max Relax (2014 LP)

I remember the first time I ever saw Millions perform, which is saying something, considering it was in the middle of a blurry year of partying and uni. The youngbloods from Brisbane played to a small crowd, sure, but their sound captured the venue and before long, they were a popular fixture on the local scene with their Nine Lives, Six Degrees EP especially. Following on from a good amount of triple J love and popular live shows around the country, Millions went off the radar. A sojourn to London to work tirelessly on what would become the highly-anticipated debut album has clearly seen Millions evolve into a band who have refined their sound, have matured sonically and most of all, have kept that energy we saw them burst out on to the scene with back in 2011/12. Max Relax. Let's do it.

Live Review: Peace + Millions - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (21.09.13)

Between these two loud live acts, Oxford Art seemed such a tight space on Saturday night. Loud in their sound but also with a high performance energy that seemed almost too intense to watch from the bar.
