PREMIERE: START TOGETHER
Brisbane four-piece Start Together are about to release yet another unique and intriguing single, ‘Az Nem Varhat.’ This band has released some of the most interesting, fuzzy, glittery music that is an incredibly satisfying mix of shoe-gaze and DIY punk.
"Crepes’ stage presence was a perfect match to their music - a little bit awkward (in a charming way), relaxed, comfortable and casual. They’re the kind of band that you get chatting to at a gig and end up being good friends with almost by accident."
PREMIERE: C O L T S
Introducing C O L T S and their debut offering 'January' which is the first chapter in their 12 part ‘Calendar Collective’ series.

PREMIERE: MILOW PYE
We are here to bring you Brisbane based Milow Pye's latest release Favourite Flower and honestly if songs were flowers… this would have to be my favourite.
"Everything about them is so smooth. No instrument oversteps another. It is only played when necessary and only just the right amount. With no dominate lead, every member and instrument has its own time to shine."
