With their dark tangle of raw lyrics, honest and haunting melodies, Little May have been making waves internationally since the release of their debut single Boardwalks. Their undefinable and expansive sound has seen them wowing crowds around the world including appearances at the Great Escape Festival, Reading Festival, Electric Picnic and Splendour in the Grass.
Australian rock duo Holy Holy have sold out every headline tour and seem to receive unending praise from press and blogs all over the world. Their songs are lyrical and story-based, but also revel in huge, full band builds and crescendos. Lush production abounds, mixing distorted duelling guitars with warm, close harmonies, reverb-soaked piano lines and wild percussive rhythms. It’s been just over a year since their debut album When the Storms Would Come with the recently released Darwinism the first taste of their second album due out early 2017.
After the release of their first single I Don’t Think You Like Me earlier this year, Perth band Tired Lion have dominated Australian radio. They’ve taken out Triple J’s Award for Best New Band, a WAMI for best rock song, played Groovin’ The Moo, Splendour in the Grass and are supporting Violent Soho on their upcoming Australian Tour. Fronted by the enigmatic Sophie Hopes, Tired Lion's infectious melodies are brought forth with raw honesty and intensity, calling back to the rich tradition of strong Australian front women. Acting as the perfect ying to her yang, Sophie is backed by Matt Tanner, Ethan Darnell and Nick Vasey who play with passion and precision.
