IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Golden Robot Records have a number of brilliant new singles out at the moment.
The Lockhearts: Goddamn Pretty
Sydney’s premiere rock n roll party band, The Lockhearts recently released their Tom Petty inspired new track Goddamn Pretty
. With a down home swagger, infectious choruses and a healthy dose of attitude, the track is just a sample of what’s to come on their soon to be released new album Americana Doom Fuzz. Listen to it here
Brash and honest, yet vulnerable and impenetrable, these Irish/Aussies play rock n roll the way it ought to be. Delicate melodies that give way to big guitars and even bigger drums, Flickertail’s new single Talk is like the love child of Abba and Thin Lizzy with a bit of Biffy Clyro attitude thrown in. Listen to it here.
The Cherry Dolls: Begging You Please
Filthy, fuzzy guitars, liquid rhythms and primal voodoo jams. That’s The Cherry Dolls. Begging You Please sounds like it came out of the UK in the early 90’s with its Verve like swagger, Oasis drawl and organic drums. Listen to it on Spotify.
High Tropics: Better Days
Melding the turn of the century indie rock of The Strokes and The Killers with 2017 arrangements, gives the High Tropics and instantly familiar feel. Better Days screams Glastonbury and will stir your favourite memories of other garage rock greats. Listen to it here.
Palace Of The King: It’s Been A Long Time Coming
