THE LOCAL SCENE

The Disappointed
The Disappointed

A round up of local releases. 

THE SOUTHERN RIVER BAND

Perth’s rockingest band of guitar troubadours, The Southern River Band, are back with their second album, Rumour & Innuendo.  As a sophomore album, this one packs more punch than most as it takes a semi-autobiographical trip through the rites of passage of local metal guru and SRB front man, Callum Kramer. This band can write a chorus and an anthem like few can and now they have the record to back it all up.

THE DISAPPOINTED

The heavy pop of the new album from The Disappointed, We Don’t Dream, asks what price to pay for the pervasive sense of hopelessness that (they say) pervades millennials’ culture as they inherit the world from the baby boomers.  We say, if that price is the creation of music this good, it’s worth paying!

FINN PEARSON

Finn Pearson releases his debut single, ‘Housing Estates’, on 26 October.  Opening with a beautifully maudlin violin, this song is filled with bile and anger wrapped up in a beautiful melody and folk/rock instrumentation, all of which marks Pearson as an artist to keep a close eye on.

OCEANIQUE

Indie folk twin sister duo, Oceanique, showcase their raw honesty in their debut single ‘Papier Mache’, set for release on 25 October.  This duo’s distinctive vocals, delivered with a hint of Aussie rawness and harmonies that will fill your heart with joy, traverse some quirky and interesting subject matter.  Claiming folk as their heartland, this single marks out Oceanique as potential mainstream darlings.

ELDON DRIFT

The second single from Eldon Drift, ‘Legs’ is a smouldering slow burn of a song featuring peach fuzz vocals from singer Mark Hewitt.  Built for evening summer breezes by the river, the abrupt ending makes you want to listen again and find out exactly what’s under the layers of acoustic guitars and laid back urgency.
