Amistat perform a new original ‘Loner’ under shelter from heavy rain in the midst of an Apple orchard. Turn up your volume and check it out!
Get keen for another great artist coming out of Geelong in this new Nature Sessions! Nathan Seeckts describes his songs as being about “gambling, drinking, cheap women, hard times, fast cars that won’t take you anywhere and life in small towns.” So all the good stuff, obviously.
In this latest episode of Nature Sessions Sam Burtt, lead singer of local Geelong band Residual, belts out an acoustic version of their latest single ‘Numbered’. Fresh from a tour promoting said single across the east coast of Australia, Burtt’s voices takes over the usually quiet lonely path while tall trees provide a majestic green backdrop.
