The group released their debut album, A Thing Called Divine Fits, just last month and are now pushing it even further with a great new video for one of the album’s strongest showcases of what the trio... read more

We’ve already heard the falsetto-laden lead single, ‘One in a Million’ – which will be toured across the east coast of Oz starting next week – and it’s now been brought to life with a great video.
Here, Simon goes about... read more
Last week, we got to share the brilliantly odd video for ‘Who’, the first track from David Byrne and St. Vincent’s debut collaborative album Love This Giant.

If you haven’t heard of Splashh then its time you became acquainted with their sun drenched garage pop greatness.
With three out of four members from the Southern Hemisphere, London based Splashh are perhaps not as well known down under as they should be. They have been rapidly on the rise in the UK capital however since founding member’s Sasha Carlson and Toto Vivian, originally from Auckland and Byron Bay respectively, released a bunch of homemade tracks online early this year.
