After completing a sold out North America tour, Miami Horror dropped a new song and music video; the track “Cellophane (So Cruel)”. It’s a summery upbeat tune to get us Australians through the winter. We’ve also got an Australian tour coming up in August from the Miami Horror gang to look forward to, with the tour dates listed below.
Sydney songwriter Danny Yau is gearing up to release his debut album Do You Think We'll Live Here Forever? in September, the first release under his own name. Having fronted The Reservations and having performed extensively with some of the country's best musicians throughout his career, Yau's debut solo release is all about returning home and finding one's spot after being away for a period of time. In his single "The Inner West Misses You", Yau has penned an ode to his hometown, the Sydney stomping ground he's experienced so much in.
Having recorded their third album with John Merchant (Michael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz), Aussie band Cheap Fakes have got a killer set of material now refined and up their sleeve, due for an October release! The Brisbane six piece have long been making a name for themselves as dynamic and entertaining live performers - a relentlessly fun and engaging live act, Cheap Fakes are anything but what the name suggests. Their latest single taken from Modern Vintage, "Baby It's a Good Song", has its music video premiering on the AU today, a perfect way to lean back and get keen for your weekend.
Foals have unveiled a new track of their upcoming album What Went Down, and an incredible and innovative new clip created with director NABIL in association with GoPro. The viewer on YouTube lets you change the camera direction as the band plays around you, an experience that’s never before been seen in music videos.
Brisbane's Major Leagues have dropped the music video for their latest single "Someone Sometime", taking in some great shots of locations on the North and South islands of New Zealand! Shot by Australian photographer and filmmaker Theresa Fryer, the music video stars model Elle May Leckenby and is a great accompaniment to the fuzzed out tune we've been digging since its recent release.
WAAX are Brisbane’s loudest and most energetic band around at the moment, and they’ve just put out a video for their new single "I For an Eye”. The DIY video is visually stunning, capturing a twisted storyline as well as a taste of the bands intense performance style. Check it out here:
Melbourne pop artist Rachel Costanzo came on to our radar with her catchy single "Starlight" a little while ago and we're proud to be featuring her latest effort, "Miles Away" on the AU review today! Since we last heard from her, Costanzo has been wasting no time in capitalising on the popularity of previous releases ("Starlight" and "Blindside"), writing new music with the talented folk at MSquared Productions (Michael Paynter and Michael Delorenzis) - "Miles Away" being the latest gem co-written and produced by the duo.
If you were lucky enough to catch Holy Holy at Splendour last weekend, you’d understand the excitement surround the release of their new album When The Storms Would Come. Their set demonstrated the bands interconnected dynamic and confidence on the stage, especially in one of the highlights, “Sentimental and Monday”, which has just gotten a new video.
Vampire Weekend bassist and solo musician BAIO recently announced a short Australian tour in support of his debut album The Names, an exciting promo trip that will see Australian club crowds be some of the first in the world to be hearing the new material! One such track taken from the album is in "Sister of Pearl" - a catchy slice of indie-pop music that now has a film clip to boot!
Vance Joy has released a new single and film clip in "The Fire and The Blood" - a perfect way to start getting fans a little excited for his upcoming return tour of the country with some American songbird at the end of the year. It's been a little while since we've seen Vance but you know, when you're spending the majority of your time dominating stages overseas, I think we can let the absence slide.
