Circle from Enmore in Australia is the alternative indie trio of Radi (Vocals / Keyboard), Bec (vocal / Keyboard) and Dan (Bass) who have been together since 2005. Surprisingly with so many keyboards, the material manages to strike a strident chord of paroxysms. There is a drubbing bass that can’t help but catch my ears and I find […]

The Emergency

The Emergency is a Melbourne, Australia based electro-pop team of Mila, Morgan and Cinta (Drums). Having started as a four-piece, distillated down to two and just added a live drummer the band has had an intriguing development, but they have now honed in on a space which is… Engaging bass challenges my sub-woofer, not to mention the […]

There is a delightful sound which emerges from the speakers as the creative spark that is Sean Conran flexes his musical talents. The music has a softness which enhances […]

Molly Contogeorge

Heading over to Sydney in Australia and the indie bands blog finds Molly Contogeorge. A singer / songwriter / pianist in a genre combination, neither of which individually is generally enticing to my bass driven ears, never mind the  intertwining – jazz-pop – but Molly Contogeorge proves ability strikes high above preconception. The clarity of […]

Bec Sandridge

Bec Sandridge is an Australian solo musician originally from Wollongong in Australia, who wrests from her soul an alternative-folk guitar driven construction. Having performed within a band she elected to stride a path on her own, utilising accompaniment as necessary. I seem to have been writing about female singer-songwriters for a few days now and Bec Sandridge is a pleasure to […]

The Mad Pride

The Mad Pride, from Wollongong in Australia is in essence a solo vehicle for the progressive / indie / psychedelia / folk  /rock multi-instrumentalist Rowan Galagher to get his thoughts out to the world, he does use occasional additional players. A vocal which in some ways reminds me of David Bowie adds a lustre to the brooding presence that emanates from the […]

The Salvagers

The Salvagers, from Sydney Austrialia, are the archetypal rock band – à la AC/DC. Cam (Vocals / guitar), Nathan (Guitar / vocals) Nic  (Drums / vocals) and Dawson (Bass / vocals), that’s an awful lot of vocalists, have been round since 2007, disappeared of the radar for a couple of years and returned in 2011 with […]
