Bio

The Small Town Giants are a four piece indie-rock band that formed in mid 2011 in Newcastle, Australia. The “Giants” push the boundaries on producing their music. From punchy rock riffs to the sounds of the cello, their music comes together to create and indie-rock sound like no other. Being brought up in Newcastle, all the boys have experienced the hardcore mentality of Newcastle's music scene. The Stg's Express their music through their own individual personalities. Catch them playing around Newcastle and the Central Coast, in venues such as Customs House, The Beaches Hotel and The Cambridge Hotel. Keeping it real, and not eating veal.

You guys really work the element of surprise. This song barrells in and exceeds expectations with some great production and instrumentation and an even bigger chorus. A nice, beefier take on folk-rock.

Unfortunatley missing the mark on this song, not as cohesive as a whole song with a feeling of lost direction as a band. In comparing both songs STG sound like two very different bands still unsure on their sound.
