• STAY & AWAY

    Indie-pop outfit, Young Robin, have released a new single, Stay. It’s a song that quite appropriately had an unsure beginning.

    “This song started with a riff Ben (Teune, guitar) had over a year ago,” explains bass player, Hamish Graham. “We liked the riff but sat on it for a while, not sure where it should go, until one day it just started coming together and pretty soon we had the song finished.

    “The song itself is about being in a point in life where you're faced with making a tough decision and being unsure which way to go.”

  • NEW SINGLE FOR THE TOMMYHAWKS

    One of Perth’s hardest-working bands, The Tommyhawks, have released a new single, Summertime. In spite of its title, the living ain’t necessarily easy…

    Summertime is about coming out the other side of depression, or being in a bad place,” explains vocalist/guitarist Addison Axe. “I've struggled with my own mental health over the last year and the whole upcoming EP explores that journey through self 're' discovery.”

  • BOAT SHOW BIZ

    Making the most of their impressive 2017 momentum, Fremantle-faves Boat Show have released a new single, The Big Smoke. The song is an energetic lament on the perennial Perth-friends-moving-to-Melbourne imbroglio.

    "It's like trying to run away from a ghost that you think is haunting your house but it's actually haunting you, so it follows,” says vocalist, Ali Flintoff. “Do you like my metaphor? I'm pretty witty, hey."

    For a (seemingly) part-time band POND sure seem to keep busy. The Perth-based psychedelic rockers have just released a new album, The Weather, their seventh since January, 2008.
