Australia day

Yup so I know Australia day was a couple of days ago - I'm sure I could hear the furore from the Finchley Road Walkabout from here - but having read through an article in great Australian blog TripleJ the other day, in which they ask a load of national celebs and tastemakers to pick their songs of the year, I thought I'd share some some promising Aussie findings with you.

Over the past couple of years Australia has really been making a name for itself on the global music map, churning out band after awesome band. You may already know about the likes of Boy & Bear, The Middle East, Hungry Kids of Hungary, The Temper Trap, The Jezabels, and Violent Soho, but here are some lesser known gems that are certainly worth checking out:

Georgia Fair -
Abbe May -
The Chemist -
British India -
Little Red -
Papa vs Pretty -
Sons of Rico -
Gypsy and the Cat -
Dead Letter Circus -
Hello Satellites -

  1. Good of you to shout out the Aussie scene Nick. Nice work.

  2. No worries Dan, there's a sick amount of talent out there!
