Jeremy Neale returns from training in The Himalayas with Johnny Rivers to become the new champion of Spy Rock. He's still jumping tanks full of sharks on his motorbike but this time it's in a functional yet fashionable turtleneck. Also important to note: This time it's personal.
Mammals is the folk project by Sydney born singer songwriter Guy Brown. His most recent endeavor sees his recognizably soft vocals combine with his love of subtle instrumentation, generating a warm and ambient folk vibe. Many sleepless nights have been accompanied by Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley - influences present throughout Mammals’ flowing nature.
Hailing from the live Melbourne music scene Ali Barter brings forward a voice haunting and emotive. A unique and subtle modern twist on folk with touches of soul, alternative and blues, she has created a following entirely based on her live performances to date.
In three years together, Sincerely, Grizzly have embraced the opportunities presented to them and have been rewarded in spades, with support slots for international outfit and key musical inspiration …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead (US), as well as interstate acts including An Horse, Violent Soho and DZ Deathrays, thanks to their ever-convincing live shows.
Fremantle four-piece Rainy Day Women (pictured) are all about classic pop tunes. They have a knack for melody and a partiality to the sunny West Coast. The result is an eclectic bunch of sun-drenched ditties reminiscent of The Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac and The Beatles.
