With the rise of Indie bands in Australia, many will be looking for a band that fits their musical taste and style. To be honest, there aren’t too many “big” bands in this country that don’t have a major label presence. Some of the smaller ones do though, and these bands make a statement with their performances and music.
Looking For New Bands?
If you’re looking for a new band to listen to, one band to keep an eye out for is The Jesus and The Clearcut tones. This Australian indie-rock band has been around since the early ’90s. They play traditional instruments and have fun lyrics. They even use a campervan to get around on their travels! The beautiful part about them though, is they are known for their fun songs, great vocals, and “campy” guitar playing.
If you want something a bit more “grown up” from the indie-rock crowd, The Voodoo Childes in Melbourne, Australia has a full schedule of shows coming up. These tight ladies rock hard at the town centre after night. They are known for their chunky guitars, and even though they haven’t put out an album yet, it’s safe to say this is one band you will not want to miss. They have a unique sound and style, which are evident in the videos they put together like a viral campaign.
What To Look For In Your Next Band
If you are in doubt of what your next band should be called, The Casket makers might just be what you need. The Casketmakers play catchy melodies on their guitars and at the same time, they create dark, moody atmosphere throughout their performances. The members have only just started playing together, but are already making a name for themselves in the music scene. Their sound is a bit folk with some heavy riffs thrown in. Expect them to be appearing at festivals around Australia in the near future. This is only one band you will be able to see on Australian tours.
For a truly spiritual type of music, you can’t go wrong with bands such as Spiritual Movement. They are named for their use of sound, pictures, and sounds of spiritual meditation. They are both melodic and deeply spiritual. This is definitely not your run-of-the-mill pop or rock. Their music is slow and hypnotic. You will be completely mesmerized by their performances.
As mentioned earlier, most of the bands in Australia are very new. But that does not mean they are not talented. They are just getting started. Each band says they have the best material ever made. In the end, it will all come down to the music, and no matter how long you have been listening, there will be something new to hear and experience when these bands get back together.
In for your band to be successful, it is really important that you hold regular band practice wherever possible. Doing this will help ensure you and your band can keep your musical skills and ensures that you are ready to perform in a variety of different venues.
