We caught up with rising weirdo-punk crew Polite Skeletons to find out what’s set to go down this Sunday at their DIY show at Preston skatepark The Tannery.
Following on from the release of ‘Leather Whip’ last year, Cong Josie has once again emerged to serve up another serving of his brand of sleazy new-wave and warped post-punk – on ‘Persephone’, Cong contorts a doo-wop ballad into a soured synth-pop dream, and its accompanying clip adds an extra level of bizarreness to the whole endeavour.
Today we have the pleasure of sharing a first listen and watch to ‘Antipodes’, the (sort of) debut single from emerging Melbourne outfit Deuce – an evocative invitation into the duo’s dreamy world of enigmatic guitar-pop, that doubles as a stunning taste of their forthcoming debut album on Dinosaur City Records.
David Forcier has spent his past five years in Australia loyally documenting the going-ons within our underground music scenes from behind the camera. His efforts have resulted in the second edition of Reckless, a book compiling photographs taken from 2016 to 2019 that serves as a visceral and unfiltered snapshot into these communities.
