Sydney band THE RUMOURS are pretty new to the Sydney scene, but in that short time they have achieved alot for a young band. Playing many of our shows from MY MARS RIOT at the Annandale Hotel to MY BYRON BAY RIOT at the Great Northern and everything else in between this two piece seems to be making headway into punters hearts one show at a time and we’re stoked to see that their quick progress hasn’t gone to their heads.
It is also encouraging for us here at MSR to know that there is an exciting breed of bands out there who seem to be bringing something new and refreshing to the table rather than the usual ‘predictable jangly indie rock guitar band’ which to us is killing souls left right and centre in this Country.
New acts like SHE REX, THE OWLS, ELEGANT SHIVA, BEC AND BEN, THE DARK HAWKS, DRUG SQUAD 66, THE TROUBLED ROMANTICS, B MASSIVE, HIGHTAILS, BIG WHITE, THE NEW LOVERS, BAD PHARMER, SIAMESE ALMEIDA, VIOLET PULP and many many more are setting a new standard in independent music in this town and there’s really no end in sight.
So to celebrate new beginnings we want to offer you some brand new music by THE RUMOURS, a worldwide exclusive to their debut single which was recorded at DEF WOLF and mastered at TURTLE ROCK. So get down to the good vibe sounds of MAMA and help us spread the word out there to the starved ears of the people who need to rethink independent music as ‘A MOVEMENT’ and not an alternative plan for bands who are (for now) void of any radio play. Enjoy!
