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!

The underground independent music scene is currently going through an amazing transformation of late, kinda like a snake shedding its skin and exposing some new flesh, it’s exciting but also scary if not treated with respect.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been sifting through the heap of rad bands that are circulating in our stratosphere of late and due to our need to expose the truly gifted and unknown we’ve come up with the first instalment of LIVE AT THE RIOT, a night of fresh artists that we think people in Sydney need to discover and experience in a decent live setting and we think THE STANDARD is the perfect venue for the occasion.
So join us on Saturday 5th May, come out and celebrate the mighty talents of these amazing bands.

One of our most favourite Sydney bands are 5-some CHICKS WHO LOVE GUNS. The last time we saw them play we were all feelin pretty seedy. Anyway in our state of drunkenness we looked up to the stage and figured out that if Kurt Cobain had five boys then these guys would be them.
End of story, just go and see them tonight at The Standard because they are a fully hectic sick band. And you need to eat pizza from Olympic Yeeros on Oxford st after the show and talk about aliens with randoms later.
Shit and the support bands are totally awesome too, The Ottomans (QLD), Sweet Teeth & Doc Holliday Takes The Shotgun.
Rock n’ Roll!

The Rattlesnake Cobra is the most fun party song you will hear on all fours, it is also the first single off their third album ‘Revenge of the Goons’ which drops later this year locally and internationally thru Volcom Entertainment.
