Contrast – ‘Livewire’

contrast-livewire

‘Livewire’ is the first taste of Contrast’s forthcoming album. The post punk outfit have been recording in Melbourne with Stu Mackenzie (of King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard) following the release of their 2014 debut EP. ‘Livewire’ is a reverb soaked rocker that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The video was inspired by JMC classics and was shot on super 8 and 16mm film.

Hyla – ‘Chaos For You’

hyla-chaos-for-you

‘Chaos For You’ is a solid new slow burner from Hyla. The foursome has announced a limited 7-inch run (available here) with the b-side ‘Thousands’. It follows the Perth natives ‘Fever Calls Late’ EP from last June. Hyla did a fantastic job backing Fait for her live shows and conjure more moody brilliance on this tune.

Nothing – ‘ACD (Abscessive Compulsive Disorder)’

nothing-tired-of-tomorrow

‘ACD (Abscessive Compulsive Disorder’ is the latest from Nothing’s forthcoming full length ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ (out May 13 via Relapse). It’s another melodic rocker with monstrous guitars and catchy vocals. There’s a bunch of harmonies in there – almost of a pop/punk variety. The Philly band consistently deliver crushing rockers that are increasingly cinematic, and this is yet another crowd pleaser! Nothing have also posted the first video from their documentary series, check that out below.
