Post-Punk. Is it back? Or did it never leave? With bands like Children Collide and Kingswood returning the rock genre to its rightful place, Melbourne band, Damn Terran, have burst into the scene with a post-punk vibe that will consume your bones, force repeated head movement and make you feel young. (for some of us – again?)
Lost is the latest offering from Damn Terran, a no-holds barred outfit, known for their tight live show, having supported the aforementioned bands already in their short career. Vocalists, Ali & Lachlan, provide their own punchy verses in this loud but cohesive track which gives us a sneak peak at the LP to be released on September 20.
Kingswood have already caught peoples attention with their first single ‘Yeah, Go Die’, and their follow up ‘Medusa‘ is just as good from this heavy rock n’ roll outfit.
‘Medusa’ is more of the ‘Fuck You’ heavy rock style that Kingswood are quickly becoming synonymous with. In their own words Kingswood describe ‘Medusa’ as “a penetrating, seductive earthquake of aural delight”, and its a pretty creative but accurate description. Their tunes are hard hitting, loud, and pure rampant rock. We love it, and its no wonder they won Triple Js competition to play Splendour, as they are clearly one of the more exciting rock outfits in the country.
We also can’t wait to catch the guys playing The Landsdowne in Broadway on Friday in support of Damn Terran and Money for Rope. I hear they put on quite the show, so be sure to get their if you can.
