As you’d expect, heading along to such a festival with an incredible heritage in Australian music, you are always going to find artists that you’d never turned your attention to before.
Australian indie folk music has a new queen. Her name is Domini Forster and her debut record is entitled Raven. Opening with ‘Under Water’, edgy xylophone melodies combined with softly picked guitar and the honey dripped vocals of Forster play out in a great opening track.
A sweaty loose affair was had by all.
Kingswood are no strangers to making sweet arse rock n’ roll. Everyone remembers their absolute ball tearer of a song ‘Ohio’ right? Well they are back with their second album After Hours, Close To Dawn and it’s a big evolution in their sound.
It’s pretty unique to listen to a band’s debut release and be overwhelmed by nostalgic vibes. Redefining the sound of nu-metal made popular in the early 2000’s, Ocean Grove’s album The Rhapsody Tapes not only distinguishes them from a scene traditionally fuelled by generic metal-core releases, but also puts them well and truly at the forefront.
