A Chat with Dean McGrath – Rolls Bayce

April 6, 2015 |

Like a kitchen experiment on ketamine, Rolls Bayce are the concoction of R&B chords, barbecue sauce, transient psychedelic influence with a chopped onion’s worth of laid back rock beat to lodge a live set in a series of flavours that shouldn’t traditionally work, but definitely do. Read More

All Shiny And New: The Foundry Launch

March 9, 2015 |

Rumour had long circulated about the multi-purpose space and creative hub developing in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley; the stripped out four walls and ceiling of an old backpacker’s hostel designed to channel an ever-growing stream of Brisbane musical talent into something distinctly palpable.

Chinwaggin’ with Chase City

February 15, 2015 |

Everyone remembers Vampire Weekend.
Everyone ever, and more so when played anything from Tasmanian outfit Chase City, whose own interpretation of uplifting chords and bubbling tempo combined with an urge to toe-tap a hole through your floor has had Australian crowds doing just that throughout their last 3 national tours.

Creative Drinks took the time to sit and chat to Tarik and Michael before their Trainspotters show a couple of weeks back.  Read More

November 29, 2014 |

Who says I’m insinuating anything?

A brief flashback to 2005, when new band on the block Wolfmother had become Australia’s answer to distortion-laden rock contemporaries Queens of the Stone Age, and Joker and the Thief had become the radio anthem that punk teens and rad dads could both happily nod their heads to.  Read More
