PHOTO SERIES: MEET ME AT THE LAUNDRY MAT

December 13, 2017

After watching and connecting with so many inspiring creatives rolling through the blog over the past 2 or so years, I thought it was about time I (Court) started using this space to share some more of my own photography! You can now find my work over at it’s own little Insta @courtneyblythephotography , and of course right here! “Meet Me At The Laundry Mat” is a series about that youthful flow of days spent confused and dazed.

PREMIERE: MORNING SHOW – THE ROLLERCANES

November 22, 2017

Melbourne three-piece The Rollercanes are back with the third single from their upcoming album, ‘Morning Show’ and before we go any further, go and add this track to your ‘Summer Roady’ or ‘Bevs n’ BBQs’ playlists on Spotify STAT.

Upon opening up the link to listen to this track for the first time, the songs caption reads: “ We don’t really write serious songs, but this is kind of a serious song” this had me curious at first, had the band I loved for their riff-heavy, garage rock and tongue in cheek lyrics gone straight edge? Well never fear, they haven’t! Although they do seem to have come a long way from the girl troubles on their 2015 EP ‘Fame Doesn’t Want You’. Morning Show is a change of pace for the band. An outward look at the world we live in today, in all it’s fucked up, ratings focused glory.

Lead singer and guitarist Dan Wright says the song was born out of frustration.

“It’s about how certain ‘news’ shows try to pit people against each other for the sake of a story. The ‘morning show’ reference is a bit of dig at one particular incident last year. I didn’t realise I was writing this kind of song until about halfway through the process. I don’t want to be one of those ‘serious’ writers who acts like we’re doomed all the time, so…apologies.”

(We’ll forgive ya Dan, as long as you keep writing songs as bangin’ as this one!)

Musically, the track has the same distorted guitar, thumping bass and headbang-worthy drums the band are known and loved for, while serving up some warm, pop undertones that don’t seem to have been explored by the band before. We especially love drummer Josh Tucker and bassist Ryan Laughlin’s backing vocals in the chorus and cannot wait to sing along with them at their next gig!

Dan says this track is a case of the band giving themselves more freedom to let their songs take their own shape, rather focusing on making music with a particular sound.

The Rollercanes are the real deal, a band who are doing the hard slog and going from strength to strength with every release. We can’t wait to see what’s next for these blokes and especially can’t wait to get our mitts on their debut album which is set to be released early next year.

Morning Show is being released via Main Offender Records on the 24th of November on all digital music stores.

 

Upcoming gigs:

Saturday 9th of December – Supporting Dal Santo at Ding Dong Lounge (Melbourne)

Sunday 17th December – Supporting Peach Fur at The Tote (Melbourne)

PREMIERE: BOI – REIKA

October 13, 2017

REIKA, have this week announced their new track ‘BOI’ and boi are we excited!

‘BOI’ is the first taste of REIKA’s  music since their 2016 EP ‘The Other Night’ and it’s got all the good stuff, including sleazy, fuzz-heavy guitars and a tongue in cheek nod to all the smashed avo loving, bearded hipsters out there. 

PHOTO SERIES: EAST TO SOUTH

October 4, 2017

“Why South Aus? It’s the middle of winter, surely you’d go East chasing the warmth.”

For a second I thought yeah why the hell are we going to South Aus? In the end we did know nothing about it. All I new is that I had lived in Adelaide for a year or so when I was just a bub. So can’t say that counts.

It’s like the underdog of Australian States & Territories, but that’s why we chose it. We had one week of uni hols free, so we decided to borrow my grandpa’s old work van, leave the Eastern suburbs of Melbs for a while and head South.

What we discovered was some pretty gorgeous places. Bright green rolling hills, deserted beaches (thank-you winter), rugged coastlines & coloured lakes.

Head below to see for yourself. I’ve made sure to mention each spot in the caption in case you want to make your way down South any time soon.

P.S I had some of my main images published over at Summersite with a bit of a story to go with so you can also check that owwwwt here. (BUT below you get a much more intimate version of the trip! 😉 )

FILM: A MINUTE IN THAILAND

September 27, 2017

Wondering where we’ve been? Same. Among uni and work that has been taking up the majority of or time, I (Mia) recently went on a trip to Thailand WOO! Here’s a quick look at the two weeks my BF Rob and I spent in the land of smiles. And yes! I bought a DRONE baby. For anyone wondering – it’s a DJI Spark, and it’s wonderful! Hopefully will have a lot more content for your eyes once the weather gets warmer. ENJOY xxx

NEW RELEASE: SUN

September 11, 2017

Last Friday whilst Mia was off groovin’ to her boyfriend’s band REIKA  (more on them in the coming weeks) I was groovin’ at the Corner Hotel amongst a sold out Ocean Alley gig. If their delicious psych-reggae rhythms weren’t enough, (oh and gorgeous surfy locks) I also had the pleasure of hearing one of their support acts, a band by the name of SUN.

Fresh on the scene with their new release ‘Seasons‘, these boys had the crowd hooked and in the mood for a good time! (Not to mention there were multiple murmurs of “These guys are fucken’ sick!!” around the room!) They have a contagious mellow vibe and their groovy beat keeps you up and about whilst feeling like you’re drifting deep into another dimension.
