The info to this week’s trio of tunes had taken a last minute vacation leaving the boys a little lost for words on-air, which was exciting. Yet ever the professionals they soldiered on!
Leading the charge were Mission in Motion who’s highly charged teenage rock filled the airwaves as they cranked up the DBs. Sitting squarely on the fence of emo and punk these guys would turn the most dedicated emo’s frown upside down. Lairy guitar riffs and crashing sounds akin to Blink 182 capture your attention instantly. The boys are off on a national tour this November to celebrate the release of their first long player “Somewhere Safe”, playing Oxford Arts Factory on 12th Nov.

Sailing into the second spot on this week’s Polyphonic Three were The Boat People who have, luckily for us, escaped the Coalitions charge to send them back from whence they came. (Brisbane in their case). Combining witty, retro pop music with sophisticated melodies and upbeat sumptuous sounds The Boat People have created a wonderfully addictive album for summer. Musically they’re mid way between Phoenix and Deathcloud, in the positive vibe stakes. Which is pretty high! The video for Damn Defensive is yet to be produced so check out their latest clip, above, and see why we’re so excited to have the boys back on our stereos at The Walk of Shame.
Sleepyhands wrapped up the weekly round up of new and cool with a hazy, golden-afternoon of a track called Autumn March which is being offered up for free via their Fan page. Languid melodies drift in on a breeze of lo-fi samples, conjuring up images of sleepy farmsteads and gorgeous girls serving up home made cider. Hailing from Sydney they are our top band to watch this week on the Polyphonic Three. Catch them live at the Supper Club in Sydney in October or head to myspace for a gig near you.
They’re currently unsigned but we’re expecting this to change any minute. Help them out buy purchasing a copy of the EP online today!
