Photo Gallery: The Getaway Plan + I The Burden + Ocean Bones - Railway Club Darwin (19.09.15)

The Getaway Plan smashed their set at the Darwin Railway Club. The last time the four-piece were in the Top End they played at one of the infamous Mitchell St nightclubs and many of their biggest fans were under aged (sidelined, curfewed and unable to attend). Two years on and at the gorgeous Railway Club (a more fitting venue for energetic rock), The Getaway Plan played predominately to a 'come of age' 18-22 audience - who loved the old songs as much as the tracks from the third album, Dark Horses.

Sam and Jack Weaver share 10 tunes that have helped influence their work as Ocean Bones!

Sam and Jack Weaver aka Ocean Bones, are the Darwin duo we've introduced you to recently. Having formed in a music scene where originality is well-supported but is bound by their isolation at the same time, the duo have developed a musical output that represents the music they've grown up making and also tunes that have been influenced by a wide range of Australian and international artists. From hip-hop to hardcore music, these two have got quite the diverse palette. We got in touch to see which songs they're currently digging and the artists who have been influential on their musicianship.

the AU interview: Sam Weaver of Ocean Bones (NT) on developing music in Darwin, branching out interstate & more!

When up in Darwin recently, I caught up with Sam and Jack Weaver, the sibling duo who've recently branched out on their own and are making music under the Ocean Bones moniker. Having first met them on a trip to the NT in 2014, they were part of another band at the time and we gaining solid traction and popularity on the local front. In the time since, that group had decided to part and the Weavers decided to continue on their own project - an alternative rock output with licks of punk influences trickled throughout. The rest of 2015 is going to be bringing some big changes for the duo and so we linked up to find out more about this project and where they're headed next.
