Press Club @ The Lansdowne, 13th May

“Press Club have got so much weight in their set it (literally) rattles the floor but it somehow still seems like the whole thing’s floating on air. Packing tonight’s fun with both old faves and new teases, from the first song they come amongst us, as if it can’t be contained on the stage. And […]

Raised As Wolves @ The Lansdowne, 13th May

“Raised As Wolves sound titanic tonight, early Replacements fizz mashed up with right-now guitar song. The just-out-today track “Treading Water” rings like a triumphant hammer on an massive empty pipe, but it’s just one among this full set of clanging, crashing, soaring lovelies. Obviously, the highlight of their day was making it onto the cover […]

Raging Hormones @ The Lansdowne, 13th May

“Raging Hormones hark back to the party punk of The Hives, with an absolutely bloody *instant* set of smashers. You can run, you can hide all you like, but the buzzsaw guitars and the earworm monsters that infest this set are going to find you, kidnap you, and force you to dance like your life […]

Sweetie @ Mary’s Underground, 6th May

“Sweetie are as ambitious as ever tonight, with a headline set to launch their oh-so-fine ‘Collision’ EP that features old ones, never-played new ones, and a whole bloody choir of Sydney ace faces. A fabulous band, poetic in their songwriting, capable of conjuring magic from the bare minimum then dropping fully-maxed out loon moments. Few […]

Poolroom. @ Mary’s Underground, 6th May

“In only their second show as a band, Poolroom. unleash a madly full sound – tightly-martialled, disco-infused, and irresistibly danceable. Bursting with ear-to-ear grins, it’s impossible to not feel the sides of your mouth twitch while you feet run off ahead of you.” Gallery Learn More Facebook | Instagram

Punko @ Mary’s Underground, 6th May

“We are told that Punko’s introspective, minimalist electronic pop hasn’t had an onstage outing for a couple of years but it patently hasn’t aged a day. Hyper-modern, silky-smooth, and with such an intense shine it could take out a retina.” Gallery Learn More Bandcamp | Instagram

SL8ERBOY @ The Vanguard, 3rd May

“SL8ERBOY’s glossy guitar pop carries weight with it, a lush ride on a big wave. Glorious in joy, but heavy on songwriting, this is a dress-up box full of delights.” Gallery Learn More Instagram

Great Job! @ The Vanguard, 3rd May

“Great Job! play serious songs with great silliness, and silly songs with great seriousness. At no point do the two really mix – the source of their deep charm is this wilful, wild-eyed zag just slightly to the side of where you were expecting it all to land. A glimmering, oddball treasure.” Gallery Learn More […]

Sash Lynch @ The Vanguard, 3rd May

“Sash Lynch comes off the stage like a gremlin, with eyes full of glint and bags full of mischief. The music plays like a Tarantino soundtrack on glitch, a dusty gunfight through a carnival lens – it sounds happy, but blood’s probably being spilled somewhere.” Gallery Learn More Instagram
