We’ve been discovering some cool local bands and artists this month, so we’ve decided to give you a neat wrap up of the amazing songs we’ve stumbled upon. We’ve been lurking on Triple J Unearthed to find these talented up-and-comers and can’t wait to see how their careers unfold in the meantime.
Slowly Slowly are an alternative/emo rock band based out in Melbourne and their latest single “Aliens” is a killer one. They sound like Microwave and Ceres combined and you can really appreciate the incredible instrumentation in this. The feels in this song are too real and the chemistry in their musicianship is impeccable.
The Beautiful Monument
We love ladies who rock and The Beautiful Monument do exactly that in “Hostage”. They have a magnetic, powerful force when it comes to the genre of post-hardcore and hard rock and they sound so badass! It’s also fantastic to see them throw in some electronic elements to the table too, touching on some PVRIS and Tonight Alive vibes. The dark atmosphere they create in their material is so refreshing, you’ll be listening to this song more than once!
Four-piece punk/indie Melbourne band Social Skills have good things ahead of them – one being their recent song “Soon Enough”. Bringing on those easy listening vibes with an awesome build-up towards the end, this song just suits the tone of Summer – catching waves and eating fish and chips while embracing the quality time spent with friends. The guitar riffs and drums keep this song upbeat, making it a catchy listen. If you like Ceres or Modern Baseball, you’ll definitely like these guys.
Eat Your Heart Out
Pop punk/alternative rock up-and-comers Eat Your Heart Out have had a great run this year – signing to Fearless Records and releasing their upcoming EP Mind Games in just a couple of days. It’s super exciting to see another band bring on such a fabulous vibe to the table when it comes to this scene, resonating fond memories of old-school Paramore and Tonight Alive. The fearless guitars and Caitlin’s vocals are a dynamic duo, making it such an anthemic listen.
