The mighty Polyphonic Three returns to the Walk of Shame with a bounty of Brisbane based bands this week and a international senstation for added fun…
Montpelier are yet another band from Brisbane brimming with all the brilliance of an early morning sun rise. Having worked with producers such as Kevin Augunas (Cold War Kids & The Black Keys) and ARIA nominated Tim Powels the band have developed their skills of building weaving melodic sounds underpinned by wistful poetic lyrics. We’re working on bringing you an interview with these guys in the coming weeks so stay tuned to hear more about them. Lastboat is the brand new single out on the 24th of this Month having worked for almost a year to bring you the very best they could muster. It was worth the wait and you heard it here first. Hopefully.
L.A, Hong Kong, London, Toronto and Kings Cross… Drawn From Bee’s have racked up the air miles of late. Captivating audiences with their laid back sounds and well structured lyrics. Fans of Local Natives or Fanfarlo pay attention these lads are for you. We played the new single The East Wood Fox, it’s your average tale of boy meets robot set amongst the ashes of infidelity and wasted love. They’re heading around the nation on tour with The Shiny Brights and Made in Japan, playing Melt Bar in the Cross this Friday. 2011 sees them hitting Canadian Music Week in Toronto and who knows where after that. The albums been out since March, what kept you?
We use the ‘perfect sound for summer analogy’ a lot here on Bondi FM… It’s kind of the benchmark we use for all things right with the world. The Generationals take that analogy one step further with their debut album Con Law. Bringing the smooth vibes of New Orleans into an evening on the rocks at Ben Buckler watching the sun melt into the ocean. They’re music is as simple as a wave breaking on the shore and just as enjoyable. Just as likely to make you want to jump right in and bath yourself in the goodness that unfolds. It’s a happy happy sound which blends bass guitars like rum on ice creating sing song moments about love, and the all that’s right and wrong within it!
We played Trust its out now and available as a free download through their site. Enjoy.
Next week those swamp rock fellas Transvaal Diamond Syndicate take over the blog… You have been warned!
