Music Video of the Day: The Walking Who "My Future Wife" (2015)

Sydney psych rock trio The Walking Who have recently been on a jaunt through the UK and Europe, fuzzing out the brains of music fans and landing some great kudos from radio and industry on the other side of the globe. Their progressive sound and gritty, layered compositions recently have been drawing positive attention, especially with latest single "My Future Wife". Now with a film clip to stack up to the sounds on the single that have been going down so well lately, The Walking Who keep backing each stellar effort up with another impressive one to boot.

Festival Review: The Farmer and the Owl - University of Wollongong, Wollongong (14.03.2015)

Going down to Wollongong University to attend Farmer and The Owl is an absolute joy. The trip which is only a touch over an hour’s drive from Sydney is an ease and the festival is filled with laid-back easy-going coastal vibes. That is despite the healthy helping of raucous rock that filled out the line-up.

Live Review: Holy Holy + The Walking Who - Newtown Social Club, Sydney (01.11.14)

Embracing your influences is a good thing. Holy Holy wear theirs with pride. They relished in playing a pair of covers during their sold out headline set at the Newtown Social Club. The first a loyal cover of Neil Young’s classic Southern Man. The second a solid rendition of Joy Division magnum opus Love Will Tear Us Apart that played to the bands own strengths.

Live Review: Dune Rats + Shining Bird + The Walking Who - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (21.06.14)

Few bands have embodied slacker culture to the extent of Dune Rats. Frankly it seems amazing that they have even managed to get around to writing an album, let alone getting out on the road to support it, but here we are at a sold out Oxford Art Factory with a rowdy crowd, pumped to celebrate with their favourite bong smoking trio.
