Tomi has been rockin and a rollin around town for a few years now as a Sydney musician, primarily as a drummer and a very friendly guy. A bit of time on the scene has seen this young man move from the back to the front end of town yes and that is where is now, hand on the mic howling at the moon, making party within his current musical adventure which is BONEZ. His band has had a crazy busy schedule of late, so we were lucky to corner Tomi on his way out the other night and as per usual we asked the big questions about the What? the How? and the Why? Here’s what Tomi had to say. Continue reading →
One of the bright new lights on the Sydney scene right now are BONEZ. These guys have already been smashing a whole lotta touring in their short existence and so far things are coming up Milhouse for this funky soul raging four piece. Their live set is proving to be one of pure joy and excitement, a positive style that goes against the usual onstage stance which seems to be popular in Sydney at the moment, BONEZ are pretty much doing things their own way.
Determined to not do things in halves, BONEZ go all out for their shows with a goal to make sure their audience leaves the gig sweaty, satisfied and as fans. So naturally we are stoked to be premiering the brand new video for their debut single REMEMBER MY NAME.
Be sure to get out there and support this band who just SOLD OUT their debut ep launch at Vanguard a few weeks back. This is most definitely just the beginning for BONEZ.

Newcastle’s finest, THE OWLS have just released their brand new single KRAKOW. This catchy fun rockin tune was given the slick treatment by a talented team of Australian recording veterans including; Producer Lachlan Mitchell at Jungle Studios, Sydney, mastering was taken care of by the legendary Steve Smart at Studios 301, Sydney, so all the ingredients for a sure-fire rock n’ roll hit are there. Just turn it up and lose yourself to this killer tune.
We got in touch with frontman Josh Bailey and asked him about his trip to Europe and the birth of a song about Krakow, a City in Poland “It was the first real foreign country I had ever been to. I did a lot of traveling around the city where I saw a whole lot of places of historical significance during the war. One night out in the centre of Krakow I got pretty messed up on Vodka which seemed to be everywhere and cheap. I was so taken by the city I wrote down a loose draft of lyrics which I sent back to the guys that night. When I got back home that month it was the first song we the band wrote together”.
Their gritty Rod Martin directed video for Krakow was filmed in the back alleys of China Town in Sydney at about 5am while the boys were coming off a 3 day bender. Them Newcastle kids pull up good right? it must be them 1.30am lockouts. Haha!
Do yourself a favour and get up to The Standard in Surry Hills this Thursday and see THE OWLS launch their new single KRAKOW taken from their upcoming ep OWN THE STREETS with an amazing lineup of Local talent; SIAMESE ALMEIDA, ANGRY BEIGE and BRITISH BLUES. Don’t miss this show!
You probably don’t know Angie Anderson right now, but if all goes to plan you sure as hell will know her in the not too distant future. We’re going to go out on a limb and say that we pretty much think Angie’s voice is one of those rare moments in Rock n’ Roll, it’s like when a pin drops and silences a room, well that is Angie to us. One of the strongest purest rock n’ roll voices we have come across in Sydney and even in Australia (and we have come across many many amazing voices). She’s the front woman and voice of Sydney’s very own THE DARK HAWKS, together this three-piece band are doing some great things with their music, touring relentlessly and trying to make as much noise off their own steam as they can and they seem to be winning. They blew our minds around a year ago and we look forward to what’s to come in 2014.
Anyway enough ranting from us, we caught up briefly with Angie, this is what she had to say. Continue reading →
