Brisbane based rock outfit The Furrs are on a roll. Alongside a slew of live accolades, The Furrs are proud to present their latest sonic offering in their new single Money as well as a slice of retro visual to go with it.
Another offering of bluesy-rock goodness, Money follows on from the tracks that put The Furrs on the map, Get On Your Horse and Little Boy which saw them named second in triple j Unearthed’s “Best Discoveries of 2014”.
Introducing Rolls Bayce, the new outfit led by ex-Hungry Kids of Hungary frontman, singer and guitarist Dean McGrath, drummer James Wright (formerly of Millions) and bassist Neal Apel. After an organic year recording and playing shows, the trio is proud to announce the release of new single Don’t Get Me Wrong in addition to the forthcoming August residency at Black Bear Lodge and BIGSOUND Live showcase.
Building on the trio’s love of 60s soul and obscure psych-rock, they pair deep drums and bass grooves with lithe, spacey guitar and throw in tightly wound choruses and dense jam-outs for good measure. They truly wring as much sound from their instruments as three people can muster.
Don’t Get Me Wrong was recorded and produced by Yves Klein Blue alumni Sean Cook and appears as the first official single from the new band, following a sneaky Soundcloud upload late last year (Arrows) and an impressive list of early shows with the likes of Holy Holy and Ainslie Wills, Bluejuice, The John Steel Singers, Loon Lake, Jeremy Neale and Gung Ho.
With both McGrath and Wright now free of their previous band commitments, their focus (along with the addition of Apel) has shifted squarely onto Rolls Bayce.
Don’t Get Me Wrong will be released on July 25.
At a mere 16 years old, Imogen Jones is already making sonic waves under her moniker Lupa.
With people from Brooklyn to Brisbane raving about her electro-pop prowess, Lupa’s experience surprisingly lies in classical music with the artist currently finishing her studies in violin at the Conservatorium High School in Sydney. Her introduction into the world of contemporary music came in the form of her recently released debut single Statues which is already pricking ears across the blogosphere.
Conceptually, the video for Statues centres around conveying a “frozen” feeling, resonating lyrically with the track. A cold, blue colour grading and the fact that the video was all shot in one take is enough to cause chills…Let alone the the extraordinary talent of the luminary responsible for the song.
Introducing Lupa, a 16-year-old indie electronica singer-songwriter from Sydney otherwise known as Imogen Jones.
A classically trained musician, Lupa comes to the indie scene with a fresh take on electronic production. Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of artists, from Grimes to Laura Marling and Radiohead, she integrates her skills as a violinist with synthesised instrumentation and delicate vocal layering to create a unique, alluring sound.
Proving herself an intuitively gifted songwriter and musician Lupa writes, records and produces each of her tracks entirely independently, delivering beautifully textured electronic pop that has a lyrical maturity far beyond her years. Her debut single Statues is a direct, poetic and musically sophisticated window into the heart of today’s teenage girl; an unsettling and unforgettable listen.
Statues is out now available online and through iTunes with an undoubtedly impressive EP set to follow in the coming months.
Brisbane four-piece Tundra have been a well-known fixture on the club scene since 2012, renowned for infectious pop hooks, original indie grooves and a dynamic on-stage chemistry which dates back to high school friendships.
After a short break away from the limelight, recording with rising producer Konstantin Kersting (Big Scary, The Belligerents) Tundra return with Tangled, the lead single from their soon to be released EP. High energy hooks, unforgettable melodies and instantly grabbing experimentation are what provide the foundation for this next release from a band that consistently deliver.
