From the beer-soaked, glitter-filled house party scene where they cut their teeth to the biggest stages the Steel City has to offer, RAAVE TAPES’ sound “mixes murky garage riffs with squiggles of synthy-laden dance grooves.” – Triple J.
After being earmarked as ones to watch by Triple J with an “Unearthed Spotlight” in July 2016, RAAVE TAPES took out the 2016 Triple J Unearthed THIS THAT competition. Their lively brand of garage indie dance rock has seen the Novocastrian 3 piece perform alongside industry favourites The Gooch Palms, Hockey Dad, Andy Bull, Harts, Skeggs, Cubsport, WAAX, The Bennies, Clowns, Ecca Vandal, The Pinheads, Polish Club, The Dumb Punts, New Navy, Bloods and a slew of local legends.
RAAVE TAPES released their debut, self-titled EP in July 2016 via Newcastle’s No-Fi Records & completed a whirlwind east coast tour to celebrate. The Newcastle leg was a game changing evening for local music in Newcastle – being the first band to play King Street Hotel in over 20 years & managing to sell out the 300 capacity room within half an hour.
Infamous in Newcastle for their wild DIY house parties, Raavies next event “RAAVE TAPES Winter Wonderland” gave Newcastle a taste of their roots on a much larger scale. With 14 bands playing over 12 hours, local live art and a Raavies headline slot – the secret warehouse party saw 600 revellers immerse themselves in the city’s vibrant creative underbelly.
Following the release of their latest single “2 u xoxo” this year they kicked off a national tour, featuring an appearance at Mountain Sounds. These lil raavie babies are working hard to maintain their momentum in 2017 with a new single and more tour plans to be announced. As Newcastle Live said
TEES are a 2-piece dreamy house-pop outfit. They are nostalgically reminiscent of an early 90s acid soaked dancehall if it were floating on a bed of clouds.
One of the first times Tees met, was at Lizzy’s house in Redfern. She demanded Sean was to drink a specially prepared cup of tea she had prepared, and it was only under this condition that he was aloud to enter. Unbeknownst to them that this was the beginning of a beautiful and creative relationship. The next time they met, the pair again found themselves in a similar subconscious state of wonderland and it was here that the first whispers of tees begun to grow.
Sean had already begun writing music with a female vocalist in mind, but till this point had little luck in a musical matrimony. He remembered Lizzy. Sure, she was in a band at the time, but under the guise of a supporting friend, he went to one of their shows with the secret intention of poaching her.
Lizzy agreed to record.
After a few weeks of constant date changes and cancellations, they finally got together. Neither of them knew what to expect. Lizzy had a cold and was losing her voice. But, because of their flaking plans she was determined to record that day. Sean was impressed and knew this was the beginning of something special.
The cold is reflected in her dreamy meandering vocals of ‘playground’ (The Band’s first single). Their mutual love for creating harmonising melodies alongside pulsating belereac beats was forged that afternoon and so to was their weekly ritual or recording alongside a bowl of Thai and a constant supply of peppermint tea with lemon.
From their platonic love, the pair has continued to forge their own path of music that reminds all who listen of a time and a sound that cannot so easily be defined.

Ukiyo is 20 year-old, Australian multi-instrumentalist and producer Timothy Arnott and his fresh brand of electronic music blending influences of Hip-Hip, EDM, and classical motifs to create an atmosphere that’ll take you anywhere from a road trip to the dance floor.
Ukiyo stepped on the radar in 2016 with the release of his debut instrumental EP ‘Calling’, with each of the four tracks dabbling in their own infectious production techniques and sound. With the release of his first major single in February and marking his 23rd (!!) release over the past year, there’s no doubt that 2017 has begun on a serious high note for this up-and-coming musician.
In early 2013, the Australian music scene was introduced to Brisbane band, Young Lions – Zach Britt (Vocals), Morgan Castle (Bass) and Matt Gibson (Drums), who owned their sound and instantly made their mark with their debut album ‘BURN’. What ensued was a band whose alternative edge has rapidly positioned them in the forefront of the rock genre.
The October 2013 release of their debut album ‘Burn’ (released through Shock Records), was met with critical acclaim. KillYourStereo.com named it “Alternative Rock at its finest.” The title track earned them a top 40 spot in Triple J’s Short. Fast. Loud. 2013 listener poll and kick started a relentless touring schedule in 2014 that saw the band tour to the four corners of our country.
In January of 2015, Young Lions released their sophomore album titled “Blue Isla”, praised by Rolling Stone Magazine for the band’s “undeniable charm to the songwriting” and describing the track “You Are II”, of which is the first of the three video releases, as a “a sonic adrenaline rush that rivals the best of 30
Seconds To Mars”. “’Burn’ was a record full of anger,” says bassist Morgan Castle. “‘Blue Isla’ is a huge step up for us. The record is one of beauty and maturity. Everything you’ve come to love about Young Lions – Passion. Truth. Relevancy. It’s in this record. We’ve matured a lot and so has our music”.
Young Lions nationally supported the likes of American favourites, The Almost, and Australian legends, Antiskeptic whilst also playing spot shows with Dream on Dreamer, Oh Sleeper, Senses Fail, Lydia, Sweden’s Adept as well as Australian heavyweights Sienna Skies, Dead Letter Circus, Bayside, Hands Like Houses, Jebediah, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hands Like Houses and Feed Her To The Sharks. Add to that their own headlining shows, Young Lions are not one to shy away from their performances having earnt a solid reputation for their live sets with Kill Your Stereo calling their recent performance supporting
US rockers Bayside as “a stellar performance” and “a catchy and fervent set”. In March 2017, the band teased the taste buds of their third studio album, titled Mr Spaceman, with the release of ‘Burn The Money’ and ‘Destroy Me’. The album is released at a peak time on the Lunar Calendar – Tuesday August 8 2017 – the day Australia witnesses a partial lunar eclipse. Quite fitting for an album that follows a character on a journey into space.
Young Lions are a band that’s fast building momentum and on the verge of entering Australia’s elite.
