Busy bunch of dudes. They keep coming back with more tunes. The psych puddle of this track is good for a splash.

    LOSER

    Melbourne, VIC

    Meet this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, LOSER. This Melbourne three-piece are evoking all sorts of 90’s nostalgia, raw energy and slacker vibes we can't get enough of.

    Read Interview

    Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

    We're an alt-rock band with fuzzed out guitars and a focus on melody. We've all been playing for years in different bands but since this one started we just felt that it clicked.

    What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

    Loud guitar music from the 90's.

    What can punters expect from a LOSER live show?

    Restless noise.

    What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

    "Don't stop a rockin'" - Homer Simpson.

    What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

    'Dope Calypso' by Violent Soho.

    What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

    'Never Tear Us Apart' by INXS.

    You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

    'Working Class Man' by Jimmy Barnes.

    What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

    Pagan at Northcote Social Club. They were fucken awesome.

    Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.

    Andy Hayden and the team at Poison City Records. They are always supporting unreal local music and doing so with ultimate respect.

    What are your plans for 2018?

    Plenty more music and plenty more shows.
