Video Premiere:
Placement – Harder

Navigating the genre of post punk, Placement have burst onto the scene forging a unique sound that incorporates instrumental distortion, scratchy saxophone notes and anomalous guitar riffs, and with the release of their new clip for ‘Harder’ today, they’ve offered us another teaser into their disorientating sonic world.

Premiere:
Kill Bell – you.

Alongside the announcement of their forthcoming debut album i don’t think that i have what you want, rising garage-punk duo Kill Bell have given us the pleasure of sharing a first listen to ‘you.’ today, a new dose of their unapologetic and powerful fusion of fiery punk attitude and pop sensibility.

Premiere:
Agent Apple Orange –
Winter McQuinn

Today we have the great pleasure of premiering the debut solo offering from local busy-bee Winter McQuinn – ‘Agent Apple Orange’ finds the Sunfruits frontman leaning into his usual vintage pop sound, with an extra dose of ramshackle folk-rocker spirit and glorious lo-fi charm.

Premiere:
Hollywood Real Thoughts – Hydra

Alongside their album launch livestream that went live last night on Twitch, today we’ve got the pleasure of taking a first look at Hollywood Real Thoughts’ disorientating second album Hydra – a mix of turbulent soundscapes, evocative ambience and murky electronica that ties together into a surrealist 40 minute listening trip.

Video Premiere:
Monnone Alone –
Feel It Disappearing

Following the release of ‘Feel It Disappearing’ earlier this month alongside the announcement of Monnone Alone’s forthcoming third album Stay Foggy, we’ve got the pleasure of premiering the charming new clip for the single that picks up the track’s playfulness without fully shaking its gloomy undercurrents.

Video Premiere:
Cong Josie – Persephone

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.

Premiere:
98 Camry – April Wind

Back with their third single in four months, 98 Camry have returned today with ‘April Wind’, a stirring alt-folk track that puts the project’s usual jangle-pop charm on hold for something a little more uneasy.

Video Premiere:
Deuce – Antipodes

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.

Premiere:
Old El Parso – Hugs

Melbourne has new competition for the finest irreverent band name in the city: by interspersing his surname with that most famous of Tex-Mex dinner brands, Jack Parsons (of The Pretty Littles) has become Old El Parso on his first solo endeavour.
