Released off the back of last week’s Splendour lineup announcement, The Wave is a lovely cut from Happy To You, the second album by this idiosyncratic Swedish soul pop collective. A joyful, feather light blend of piano notes and skittering drums bubbling into vibrant electro pop, from a band that lifts the roof off a live set. Bring on July.

So then, what’s the band name and what do you ‘do’ in the band?

The Bombastics. We play Funk, Soul, Disco, Jazz, Latin, and Pop music. Essentially we play covers, but not the songs you’re used to hearing down at the local pub. Expect Flight Facilities, Daft Punk, Jamiroquai, Moloko, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, and Dusty Springfield. Unless of course you want to hear a bit of...

When Simon Connolly, guitarist with idiosyncratic Melbourne indie pop band Aleks and the Ramps, rings mid-way through Tuesday night, there’s a cacaphony of noise as the answering machine cuts in earlier than I’d expected, drowning out both Simon’s opening greeting and my attempt at a reply. “Do you want me to call back later?” Connolly offers politely....

Releasing their debut full-length album is Brisbane four-piece and 'Unearthed' darlings, Last Dinosaurs. Titled In A Million Years, the pop quarter have created an album with a much more experienced sound.
