Skegss

In the six years since their inception, Skegss (singer/guitarist Ben Reed, bassist/guitarist/vocalist Toby Cregan, and drummer Jonny Lani) emerged from their laid-back, Australian small town roots as unlikely anti-heroes of the country’s vibrant rock scene. Their riotous releases have sparked circle pits and stage dives all over—from dingy pubs and skate parks, to 20K capacity festival stages—and led the three lads on countless world tours. They’ve even topped the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) singles charts numerous times and, more recently, their debut LP My Own Mess reached number two on the album charts and earned an ARIA Award nomination for ‘Best Rock Album.’ Australia’s coastal sensation never lost their underdog flair despite their achievements, and it’s that same spirit that defines their second studio album, Rehearsal—a 13-track thrill ride through modern disillusioned youth.

Released late March 2021 via Loma Vista Recordings Rehearsal debuted at #1 on Australia’s ARIA Album and Vinyl sales chart with first week sales and was the triple j feature record. In addition- Rehearsal earned the trio of Toby, Ben Reed (vocals, guitar), and Jonny Lani (drums) their first cover story at NME Australia, while its singles collectively earned early praise and support from Consequence, DIY, Rolling Stone Australia (‘Song You Need to Know’) and had 2 tracks place in the triple j Hottest 100 voted singles of the year. (‘Under the Thunder‘ (#27) and ‘Fantasising‘ (#66))

Rehearsal was recorded at The Grove Studios with Grammy-award winning producer Catherine Marks (Foals, Wolf Alice), who added a veteran’s finesse and expanded upon the rustic charm of demos the band tracked at The Music Farm using vintage gear from the ‘60s and ‘70s. From Reed’s self-made lyrical philosophies inspired by his favorite stand-up comedians to Toby Cregan’s reflections on life and his dog, Rehearsal is the most candid and electrifying snapshot we’ve seen of Skegss yet.

 

Flying Machine

With elements of Punk, Garage and Psychedelic Rock, Flying Machine‘s music can be hard to define. The Australian 4 Piece formed in Byron Bay, jamming and writing songs in their garage. They soon released their first Ep and started sharing stages with some of the noisiest and well-received punk bands around.

 

Adam Newling

Raised in Cronulla born to first-generation Greek mother and Aussie father, Adam Newling is an alternative artist who utilises country sensibilities and eclectic knowledge of sound in his music to unprecedented effect. With big dreams of one day performing in the heart of Nashville, he has arrived to light up our hearts, guitar in hand.

Newling has taken this driving passion for music and has taken it onto the road, playing with a vast range of wonderfully talented folks such as the inimitable Ruby Fields, who have taught him lessons that he will take with him forever. Now, he is more ready than ever to endeavour on his very own debut project, making songs that feel unabashedly special, and overwhelmingly urgent.

Inspired by the likes of Buck Meek of Big Thief and solo fame, who has set the benchmark for uniqueness in an oversaturated world, and the captivating, dream-like music of Molly Burch, it is clear as day that Newling is influenced by exceptional creatives. In the same vein as these artists, and many others who create country-tinged indie rock, Newling hopes to shine a light in the dark, fusing unabashed creativity with heartfelt lyricism.
