One of the more interesting hip-hop groups going, Melbourne's Polo Club — no stranger to a great clip — have a newie in 'She Will Never Know'. Once a duo, the band are now repping as a four-piece.
One of the more anticipated albums of the year 'round these quarters, Melbourne's New War aren't far off finally releasing their debut; roughly a year after putting out their first release, the excellent single 'Ghostwalking'. The quarter went into local radio station PBS a couple of weeks back to play a tune from it. Proof:
Co-frontguy Tim Derricourt of Sydney's Dappled Cities has a new solo outfit dubbed Swimwear. He describes it as, "wild, camp dance music made to make you feel good." Which easy to imagine, sounding as it does like Dappled Cities filtered through a pina colada. You can listen to/download Swimwear's Kissing Machine EP — which "draws influences from Pet Shop Boys to El Guincho, Gerling to David Bowie and all things in between" — from his bandcamp.
