4) Jane Street ‘Cheap Wine’ Single Launch
What: “Being formed in late 2019, indie four piece, Jane Street, have already begun captivating audiences with their unique sound. Describing themselves as a mixture of bad decisions and too much booze, their music style is hard to pinpoint. One minute they’re playing an upbeat, reggae infused rock track about partying too much, the next their doing a stripped back acoustic ballad about the bittersweet end of a relationship. Their only constants are the lyrically driven, emotional stories they craft, and their searing guitar tones.” – Triple J Unearthed. Experience the launch of their new single live.
Why: It’s nice to know contemporary bands still have classic alcohol issues, rather than being solely blasted on something called Meow Meow or Toot.
3) The Lazy Eyes: Live
What: The Lazy Eyes are back playing their first shows since the June release of their debut EP, which received high praise from NME amongst others. The Lazy Eyes’ carefully crafted songs, blended with their unique brand of psychedelic rock, is what makes them such a formidable live outfit, and is why they have already graced the stages of Laneway Festival, Farmer & The Owl, and many more in the early stages of their career.
Why: ‘Lazy eyes’ can also be another way of saying ‘high as f***’. Just a piece of pre-concert advice.
2) HOLY HOLY: Live
26th & 27th February
What: Alongside the announcement of an east coast tour this January and February, today HOLY HOLY reveals new single Port Rd feat. Queen P and the accompanying video via Wonderlick Recordings. The urgent and ambitious new single showcases the latest progression in their shapeshifting sound as they maintain an unshakable sense of what has come to define them. Port Rd, inspired by a quote from author Arundhati Roy, focuses on the terrifying-yet-exciting nature of change and what awaits on the other side.
Why: Because we all need another terrifying insight into the nature of change right now.
