Album Review: Young Guns - Ones and Zeros (2015 LP)

UK-based alternative rock band, Young Guns are in my opinion, underrated in the scene of music they are already in. To see them go at great lengths with their last two studio records while maintaining a loyal fanbase is an achievement itself. The last time I saw the band live was back in 2012 when they were supporting Tonight Alive in their Sydney show at Manning Bar, replacing US rock band, The Dangerous Summer. Before this last-minute change was made, I was already aware of how incredible their music was and I can tell you now that Ones and Zeros has that same continuum of expertise; the genuine and uplifting songs that create an atmosphere which lighten the spirits of those that need it most. It instills a pathway for progression and creativity that reflects a quality album.

Live Review: Soundwave Festival - Sydney Showgrounds (26.02.12)

The juggernaut that is Soundwave is here yet again, returning to Sydney's Showgrounds for the second year running. With a year to get themselves ready (you may recall the festival's move from Blacktown to Olympic Park was a rather last minute affair in 2011), the festival provided punters with an inspired new layout, jam packed lineup and a day that seemed to go off without hitch.
