Six MARINA (and the Diamonds) tracks to fall back in love with.

Welsh artist Marina (formerly Marina & The Diamonds) is an artist who has constantly reinvented herself over and over again, shedding the skin of her old persona’s and genres and emerging as something completely different. From her Indie roots with The Family Jewels to the bubblegum electro of Electra Heart and the mature pop sounds of…

Yungblud @ The Factory Theatre, Sydney

Hailing from the UK this young riot-rock god that we know as Yungblud has come to adore his aussie audience, and although some would say it is just the beginning of his career, he sites Australia as “the first country to really believe in us”. It all started in Australia with his signing to ‘Night…

Premiere: Garrett Kato – ‘River Mouth’

Originally from Canada and now set up shop in Byron Bay, singer-songwriter Garrett Kato is an artist who doesn’t need the bells and whistles and big production to fill a room. There’s a certain old world charm about hushed, raspy vocals that have the power to command a room or silence a storm. His new…

Yungblud and Nothing But Thieves announce MSF Replacement Shows

Last week we got the crushing news that Central Coast festival Mountain Sounds had been cancelled last minute and its low key left us devastated. Another festival casualty in the year and it left us worried about what was going to happen to the rest of them.  Thankfully though, even though the festival isn’t going…

Running Touch – ‘When I’m Around You’

My favourite Melbourne enigma Running Touch is hitting the ground running in 2019 with new track ‘When I’m Around You‘ which we were lucky enough to hear played live at Beyond The Valley. The track comes loaded with punchy percussion, full-bodied whirling synths and a slick guitar riff that flows through the track through the…

Welsh artist Marina & The Diamonds is back with her first solo track in over four years, and she seems to have ditched The Diamonds? The stage name has always been described as Marina as being her fans, but we’ve seen for a while now Marina becoming a little bit annoyed by the fanbase that…

After being announced early last week as part of the Regional Groovin’ The Moo tour which will take place this April-May today they’ve announced her biggest tour…

Anna Of The North – ‘Leaning On Myself’

If I didn’t know better I’d say that legendary Director Baz Luhrmann had directed the visually arresting music video for Anna Of The North‘s new track “Leaning On Myself“. The track explored melancholic moments of alternate pop with shimmering and meditative synths that are unmistakably Scandinavian. There’s a quirk to the track which makes you…
