This month saw the return of Las Vegas rock band, The Killers, to Australian stadium stages for the first time in 11 years. Opening to the packed out Entertainment Centre, with their 2004 classic, Mr Brightside, the band proved they were here to perform a show worth the wait.
As part of WAVE Festival, we had the chance to experience one of the shows that was part of the festival’s semi-experimental conclave of modern profundity and storied classical sound.
“It’ll be interesting to see what the response is! It’s definitely the most personal songs that we’ve released, or the most personal to me, writing the lyrics.

The idea of “solo dates” is not a new one. To me, asking for a table for one is less lonely and more introspective. Going to see a movie or a gig by yourself allows for a greater immersion in the art.

Last time we caught up with Pretty City, we spoke to Johnny, the band’s bassist and vocalist. You might remember that they’d just wrapped up a European tour, released an album, and a single.Now, they’ve released a new single, Simone, and are heading back on tour. We caught up with Hugh, Pretty City’s lead vocalist to talk about their crazy few months.
When I spoke to Kacper Majchrowski, the guitarist and vocalist of local Brisbane band Hey Baby!, he was making himself at home in a hostel in Wollongong.
Adelaide trio Donnarumma recently released their single, Alien. We caught up with vocalist Louis from Donnarumma, to talk about the new track, their upcoming tour, and to learn a bit more about the team behind their indie sound.
