Fresh Faces: Aiden Bradley

Writing, in some shape or form, has always been the dream for Brisbane indie artist Aiden Bradley. An aspiring author from a young age, Aiden took a detour from his writing goals to study architecture at university.  It was during this period, which he describes as the worst year of his life, that his pastime playing in bands became his driving passion. Having played in local outfits like Yeaman Shore and Trapped Admirals, Aiden decided to strike out on his own last year, and has since released a handful of solo singles. His latest is the poignant Stubborn Hearts,...

Premiere: Same, Same But Different – Mickey Simultaneously Explores Individuality and Similarity In Debut Single ‘Clever Clones’

While we are all unique, by nature we are all inherently the same. That’s the thought-provoking premise behind Mickey’s debut single Clever Clones.

Premiere: Elbury Chase Life’s Defining Moments On Debut Album ‘Haunting Ground’

Centred on capturing the key moments in life that we keep coming back to, Elbury’s Haunting Ground, is a nostalgic-laden record. Described as “super chill,” the band’s first full-length album lends itself to a more alternative, progressive-folk sound than its predecessor, 2015’s Demasquerade EP. “We started out as a straight-up folk duo, but on this album, we took strong steps into the progressive-folk realm, which influenced our song-writing immensely,” said band member Edward Buckridge. “Haunting Ground builds directly on techniques that we first introduced in Demasquerade. This time around we also experimented with more sounds outside of our typical...

Premiere: Cedarsmoke Release Infectious Sophomore EP ‘Traffic On Solitude Road’

If you’ve always hoped Kurt Cobain had a collection of unreleased solo recordings hiding somewhere, waiting to be heard, then you’ve hit the next best thing in Cedarsmoke’s sophomore EP Traffic On Solitude Road. With infectious guitar licks, vocals reminiscent of Cobain’s charismatic drawl and stream-of-consciousness-like lyrics to match, Traffic On Solitude Road sounds like the love child of Nirvana and The Strokes. The record is the follow up to 2016’s False Start To The Rat Race and sees the Brisbane quintet further develop a sound that purveyors of soft indie-rock will love. “We really wanted listeners to get...
