A veritable feast for the ears awaited us with this week’s Polyphonic Three. We checked out the three newest bands who’ve been cutting shapes on the dance floor of our hearts.
First up we had Pearl & the Puppets who have managed to wrap up some seemingly dark lyrics into a cheery breezy melody complete with catchy chorus that will have you humming for the rest of the day. Similar in sound to Lisa Mitchell, Pearl (Katie Sutherland) and her Puppets have been earning recognition left right and centre in the UK and it’s been well deserved. We’re hoping to spread the word down under. Big thanks to Sophie for an utterly enjoyable indie music find. Expect to hear much more from these guys on The Walk of Shame.
Hot on the heels of that Pearly Pops came The Seabellies proving that you can come from outside a capitol city and still be cool! These guys have had a couple of E.P.s out and gained a lot of kudos through their live performances. I saw them at V Festival a while back and they did not look out place on the same line up as Beck and Jarvis. They’re the type of band to swap instruments mid way through set which always knocks my socks off! After two years the band are just about to release their debut album By Limbo Lake and by all accounts it’ll be a ripper! Check out MySpace for a live set near you.
Bringing the weekly round up to a close were the 6’s & 7’s. “You may know 6’s & 7’s from previous shows like.. that awesome gig at the Hellenic Centre…” Their Facebook page announces. We missed that one but will aim to catch them on their Aussie tour as their lo-fi sounds and ample gusto creep into our dancing shoes like fluff from a well worn pair of socks. Josh Fontaine and the crew are offering their latest mp3 for free over at
Let us know if there’s an emerging band you think we should be playing from home or away and we’ll get it on the Polyphonic Three, 10am every Saturday morning on The Walk of Shame. Bondi FM’s weekend breakfast show.
