2013 has been a year of discovery for us here at MY SYDNEY RIOT and we have enjoyed getting to know so many amazing bands from all around the Country, but especially Sydney. This city is currently churning out some of the best unknown bands in Australia at the moment and it’s about time too.
We have actually come across many more awesome bands this year, but this is just a list of 13 bands that we realised had a couple of things in common, we had no idea who they were this time last year and on top of that none of these bands have any real radio support which also makes this little write-up all the more amazing and somewhat bizarre.
So here are 13 bands that you probably had no idea existed in 2013. You might wanna check them out in 2014. Yew! Continue reading “13 BANDS YOU PROBABLY HAD NO IDEA EXISTED IN 2013”
Finally after a few false starts RIOT RADIO (the podcast) is finally here. Yes our Pirate radio show is finally out there in the world for all to hear and for you to discover the music that is lurking below the underground music scene of Sydney and around Australia.
Depending on who you speak to you’ll hear different versions about the state of unsigned independent music in Australia. We’re going to challenge all theories out there and present to you a community of some of the tightest still to be discovered bands on the planet. You’ll be surprised to learn that most of the bands we are pushing don’t get massive radio play here in Australia, we think they deserve to be heard.
We’ll try our very best to bring you RIOT RADIO as often as humanly possible. Once a week is the mission, but yes it all depends on how busy we are around the office. haha!
Thanks for your support. Share RIOT RADIO with your friends!
