Royal Street

Royal Street

Rhode Island-based funky pop rock band, Royal Street formed a little over a year ago. Three of the foursome were all members of a previous band called Sienna, however Zach Brock (bass), Alex Beattie (guitar) and Viana Newton (vocals) decided to start a new group with a bit of a different sound. The trio recruited their friend Brian Cauti (drums) who wasn’t in a band […]

Typhoid Rosie

Typhoid Rosie

New York indie rockers Typhoid Rosie kind of started by accident. Rosie Rebel (vocals) in fact, didn’t know that she could sing let alone write music for most of her life. Despite this, Rebel had always loved music and would hang around musicians, already being a performer herself – doing comedy whilst her then boyfriend and now husband Phil Wartell (drums) played drums in a […]

BTWN US (Artist Review)

BTWN US (Artist Review)

There was once a Melbourne-based pop/rock band by the name of Lets Not Pretend. For one reason or another, this band not too long ago unfortunately disbanded. However, two of the members of that band and brothers, Daniel Juric (guitar/backing vocals) and Adrian Juric (guitar/backing vocals), weren’t done with music. They have recently joined forces with Nathan McCreanor (lead vocals) to form BTWN US – […]

Louder Than Words

Louder Than Words

Las Vegas-based pop/rock foursome Louder Than Words are simply a group of guys who all have a great passion for music. Seeing the successes of some their favourite bands helps keep them motivated and inspired to continue to push toward their goals as a band. The quartet formed back in August 2015 when Christian VanBuskirk (guitar) and Jonathan Buzzin (drums) had the intention to create […]

Paper Planes

Paper Planes

Midwest US-based indie/pop rock duo Paper Planes actually describe themselves as genre-less. Their appreciation of music is vast and it therefore impossible to take their music into account and come to a single genre. Paper Planes’ music is simply held together by familiar and distinct sound in their vocals that draw the line between orderly and bipolar. Despite referring to themselves as genre-less, Paper Planes […]

The Brocklebank

The Brocklebank

Former UK-based indie rock trio The Brocklebank is now a quartet – featuring Curtis Hicks (vocals), Lewis Hawkins (lead guitar), Cameron Inkpen (bass) and Shae Owen-Phillips (drums). Through these line-up changes, the overall sound of the band has remained – they are still very much methodically and emotionally driven; everything is done to provoke emotion. If something commands or obliges you to feel a certain […]

Heroes Like Villains

Heroes Like Villains

Hardcore and R&B shouldn’t work together as distinct music genres, but they do with Columbus, Ohio-based quintet Heroes Like Villains, especially when it’s infused with pop-punk. The current iteration of the band formed last summer, with the addition of the current drummer. They met Myles Clayborne (drums) through other shows in the Columbus music scene and that’s where the pop-punk element came in whilst the […]

El3mental (Artist Review)

El3mental (Artist Review)

Dreamy, intelligent and mesmerising are three adjectives that aptly describe independent Melbourne electronic duo El3mental. Featuring Xen Havales (singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist) and Glenn Oakes (musician/composer/producer/graphic artist), the duo only released their debut singles on 22 May 2016. Both believe that if they didn’t create music – born from a shared passion of electronic music, art, technology and philosophy – they would both be pretty ...

The Naddiks (Artist Review)

The Naddiks (Artist Review)

Grungy pop/punk indie rock trio streaked with psychedelic flashes is The Naddiks from Canberra. The band formed back in 2009 when Joel Steenbergen (vocals) and Kurt Schiffer (bass) met up with Richard Schiffer, who would later become the band’s manager, with the trio being rounded out by Nick Steenbergen (guitar). They would play several youth events and festivals before officially naming themselves The Naddiks.  . THE […]
