Sometimes first impressions can be misleading. I was not expecting this…at all. Continue reading Loose End – Overthinking Everything I Know EP
Honest and passionate ‘The Last Goodbye’ is the kind of album to tease your melancholy and comfort you at the same time. Continue reading Aburden – The Last Goodbye (Greyscale) 2018
Darwin based sadcore band Tapestry have the goods to not only make a name for themselves here in Australia but possibly even world wide. Continue reading Tapestry – Ghost Of Me (2018)

So here’s an answer for the question ’what bands should I start listening to?’ WITHOUT the judgement you’d expect from elite scenesters and keyboard warriors.

Sydney based emo/alternative rock band Recovery Room have recently released their first musical offering with their new EP ‘A Lesson In Letting Go’ and you can check out our review of their new EP here.
I (virtually) sat down with Dylan and Christian in a cute Facebook group chat the other day and asked them a few questions about their new project and how it all came together.
