The Unearthed High Report Card: Week 4!
Holy moley, it’s hard to believe that there’s less than TWO WEEKS left to upload your tracks for Unearthed High 2018!
The heat hasn’t let up and High School Super User Isabella Moore is back at it once again. This time she takes us on a journey around the country, dipping through Tasmania to catch some Kooks-esque sunbeams from The Tinderboxes and a tropical banger from Nathan Jorge. Newcastle rockhounds, haunting folk ballads outta Maitland and a highschooler living in Melbourne who just might be the next Flume.
It's episode four of the Unearthed High Report with Isabella Moore!
