Having spent a couple of years honing their craft the release of their début EP Social Misfit at the start of the year which was a quick follow up to their début single, Happy Ever After, in November of 2017 immediately raised their profile locally which has resulted, ultimately, in an ever more full touring diary and word arrives an International tour is being pencilled in too.

Silhouette can only enhance their engagement with its solid, tight structure and delivery that finds the listener tapping their toes with the infectious melodies.

A short cross pan-Australia in August was announced on Sunday and worth booking in the diary if you are within reach. –

Half Human – A1 Club – Audio

Half Human, the Australian synthwave project, released the single A1 Club today.

Half Human

Half Human

An appropriately named project with the combinations of instrumentation, voice and synthetics creating a generous spread of becalming retrospective music.

Not in a significant rush to lay out their stall the new single A1 Club first reared its head as a conceptual idea over a year ago, though makes a welcome addition to the limited collection of songs around.

Circle – Our Imaginary Past – Audio

The Australian trippy-rock band Circle will be releasing the LP Another 69 Love Songs later this year.

Circle - Our Imaginary Past


The first song to be revealed from the forthcoming album – Our Imaginary Past – has the calm intonation of their signature sound, which in this instance has a vaguely yé-yé lilt to the composition while a spread of instrumentation is invited to the sit at the dining table – resulting in song that holds some intrigue as to what is on menu in the full LP.

Tape/Off – Wake In Fright – Audio

The Australian alt-rock quartet Tape/Off released the LP Broadcast Park on the 13th.



Four years since their last album – Chipper – the eleven tracks of Broadcast Park (available on bandcamp) find the quartet in fine spirit with a release that holds a quiet self-assured confidence which strikes the listener from opening to closing note in the roughly forty four minutes run-time.

Unhurried compositions measure their pacing through percussion or bass guitar as each composition deems fit, which enables Tape/Off to create, with alacrity, music of ever different mood.

The interweaving of the two six string guitars allow the songs their breadth of process which in this release threads from fuzzy garage through stoic solemnity to trippy psychedelia with the vocal equally able to meet requirements with passages of imploring passion through half-spoken rhetoric to mumbled query.

The fifth track is Wake In Fright.

The Peppermint Club

Washing their music with fuzzy pastels The Peppermint Club create music that has a mirage effect shimmer as the core of their sound, through which they weave a softened psychedelia enabling them to deliver songs that stretch out a beach towel for the listener to lay and allow the bustle of the day to pass by in distant focus.

The newest song to be released All Together, On The Sun is the second track to appear from the eponymous LP which is set for release on the 15th of September.


All Together, On the Sun – Single – The Peppermint Club is available on iTunes.*
