When Sound of Seasons released “The Sheltered” a few days ago, I was impressed enough to think, ‘I should check them out.’ Coincidentally, they had a show at The Lair this weekend, so I went along to see if the single was a one-off success, or just a taste of how good the band was. Supporting them were D at Sea, Breakaway, and The Maze – Three other young artists that I hadn’t heard of.
The Lair has been the home to many aspiring and up-and-coming bands for some time - a list far too extensive to name. And so it seemed fitting that the Sound of Seasons tour would launch right there, in support for their EP MakeBelieve.
After two singles, tours and promotion, the EP has finally been launched for the Australian Pop-Rockers from Sydney. But, will it be a reflection of their earlier work? Or will it stop Short? Dave Roberts takes a listen.
We've got a huge update here, with about 50 releases getting mentions this week. There's literally something for everyone in this list, so take a look and see what catches your eye!

Sydney alternative rockers, Sound of Seasons, are ready to get out on the road to tour their debut EP, Make Believe. The record is due for release next month through Sourtree/MGM and features some hard-hitting synth-rock. The band has been making solid bonds with Sydney crowds since the release of their first single, "All Over Me" and are now ready to take on the rest of the country with their unique live shows.
With a supporting tour already underway, it seems that the gods have smiled on the Sound of Seasons. But what about their second single? Will it stand up on its own? Dave Roberts investigates.
