Slightly Left Of Centre (Artist Review)

Slightly Left Of Centre (Artist Review)

Melbourne-based pop duo Slightly Left Of Centre featuring Mick Pace and Adam Spicer formed six years ago when Pace and Spicer forged their long-time friendship with music. The name Slightly Left Of Centre (SLC) was initially chosen because they wanted to be different to the other musical acts on the landscape and they have done this by writing all of the music and creating the videos […]

Talicia Pyke (Artist Review)

Talicia Pyke (Artist Review)

Gold Coast pop/rock singer songwriter Talicia Pyke has always loved music. She grew up in a family surrounded by it and as such, her family has played a huge role in where Pyke is now. Throughout her high school years, she discovered that she not only enjoyed playing covers but also writing her own music. Pyke thus found an outlet to express a lot of […]

Samantha Scarlette (Artist Review)

Samantha Scarlette (Artist Review)

New York-based soft grunge singer/songwriter Samantha Scarlette always enjoyed singing growing up during the 90s.

As a teenager, her taste in music changed however and switched from purely pop to exclusively rock…Scarlette then […]

Wil Anderson’s Fire At Wil @ Regal Theatre 04/05/16 (Live Review)

Wil Anderson is a man that needs no introduction. He has only graced our stages and our televisions for the last 20 years, written two books, has four podcasts and has travelled the world (and especially America) with his comedy. For someone who has been around for so long, you could imagine that the comedy goes stale, jokes start to be repeated or stop being funny […]

The foursome consists mainly of Taylor Liff (vocals/guitar) and a rotating cast of characters. Liff became immersed in punk rock music at a very early age as a sheltered Catholic school kid, he […]

The Weekend Classic

The Weekend Classic

A blend of 90s alternative pop punk and more progressive-modern pop punk of today is Indiana-pop punk quartet, The Weekend Classic, in a nutshell. Their focus is on bridging the generation gap for pop punk fans – their music has big, anthem-like choruses combined with in your face aggressive verses and breaks. The quartet has had a few line-up changes since initially forming in 2012 […]

MEDIC

MEDIC

Very few rock bands are capable of wowing people right out of the gate. It usually starts with a half recorded demo here, another half recorded demo there, empty bars, empty promises and then you finally get to the good stuff. . . In February 2011, four young men who were tired of such a pattern gathered in an empty church to discuss their dreams, aspirations and what […]

Amikdla

Amikdla

Schizophrenic perfectly encapsulates Amsterdam-based progressive rock quartet Amikdla, with their raw riffs, smooth sound scapes and groovy Djent-parts they essentially sail through a whole host of genres.

Wouter Ouwehand (rhythm guitar) and Jasper Schilder (guitar) knew each other from a former project, whilst Joël van Dam (mixing desk/reluctant vocals) joined the duo via the Internet. […]
