It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for.. RECORDED MUSIC FROM TEENAGE JOANS ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB! Ahhhh this is so good! I love that you’ve been able to bring your live performance energy to the recorded track. Clever writing giving me some major Alex Lahey vibes, with both an instrumental and vocal tone reminiscent of TOWNS. Love that guitar solo, Cahli’s grittiness, and hearing Ta...

Love that guitar solo, Cahli’s grittiness, and hearing Tahlia’s voice shine near the end there. I honestly just wish this was longer!! Great work, team!

The intro reminded me of new BMTH but then that major scale underlying guitar line came in and gave some solid rock vibes. Getting hints of old school Blink, plus a bit of MCR.. the whole combination actually makes for something fresh and exciting. It's hard to slot this into one genre and I think that's why I'm so intrigued. Keen to see where this band goes.

Those riffs are the absolute highlight - so interesting and colourful. Ambleside-like vocals with crunchy instrumentals that somehow make me want to dance? Here for it.

Introvert is back and better than ever! Not ashamed to say I listened to this 12 times in a row as soon as it was uploaded. The vocal tone is perfect, the jagged dynamic in instrumentals are fun, and the lyrics are simple but clever. And that intro is so reminiscent of 'You Can Count on Me' by fellow Newy boys Trophy Eyes. 'Everything is Different Now' was my most played son...

'Everything is Different Now' was my most played song of 2016, but I can totally see 'Somewhere Else' growing to be my favourite song of theirs!

Incredible tone! I adore the way you've allowed your voice to shine thanks to the simple and subtle production. Great track.

This is like if Ali Barter and Charli XCX had a love child. Love the subtle theatrics and delicate vocals.

This is a nice little turn from Endless Heights. Great to hear them explore their vulnerability in this track. Low key, chilled vibes - great for some Sunday arvo listening.

I couldn't help the little 'ooh!' that escaped my mouth when this started. Thornhill is one of those rare Australian heavy acts which pushes their own boundaries with each release, yet consistently hits the mark. How does this sound so gritty but so clean at the same time?! I'm so excited for the future of this band.

Ooooh okay! This is a whole other world. Smooth and dreamy and fun - would love to see how you pull this off in a live setting.

Big fan of the way you've presented your message here. So weird but cool to hear an electro-punk intro which jumps up to Brit pop-rock then back again - it's definitely one way to catch my attention and it looks like you've done the same with heaps of other people, too! Hope you don't make us wait too long to hear the follow up to this.

That guitar/drums combo is so reminiscent of WAYSSO-era Tonight Alive - it's like you know the way to this girl's heart! The higher register is obviously Cassie's strong point, I love hearing it shine during the chorus and bridge. The little electronic flairs are a great touch, too.

A bit too cheesy and overproduced for my liking. Love the guitar solo though, and that drum line is tight!

This is solid! Some older All Time Low x Four Year Strong vibes, but with a more mature vocal line. I like how you've made it like a classic pop punk track but with some more alt-rock influence. Really good stuff.

Now THAT is how you use a sample! Little electronic flairs can be overused in a lot of newer metalcore tracks, but you've got the perfect balance here. Ryan and David's vocals work so well together. And that change-up at 1:50? AND that breakdown?! Good God, this is an absolute beast of a song.

I admit I only listened to this song because of your band name, but I'm bloody glad I did it. I can see you on a Splendour in the Grass lineup in a few years' time, for sure.

I fell in love with Use when I heard it at the start of the year, and have patiently waited for more music from Weighbridge since. Let me tell you, the wait has been worth it - Gaunt continues with the theme of brilliant riffs, with the production giving every instrumental line the chance to shine. There's a noticeable improvement in the vocals here. Onwards and upwards, fellas.

A real head-noddin', toe-tappin' tune! Goofy yet charming, and a true bop. And the video is out of this world! Great job, team.

I'm Losing Breath because of this Chokehold (-; this is another huge step up from Oaks. Absolutely loving James's vocal tone, the brilliant bridge, the top harmonies in the last chorus, the Knuckle Puck-esque guitars, and just how tight this is in general. Chokehold is more than Oak-ay.

I like to see tracks like this, Jack. Your songwriting is simply captivating; you know how to hook the listener in and keep them on the edge of their seat, waiting to hear what happens next. The drums provide apt builds here and I really love the guitar lines.
