TRIFFID YOUNG BLOOD: PROUDLY BROUGHT TO YOU BY 4ZZZ

 

Unearthing Queensland’s Newest Bands

For only $10 you’ll get a fresh dose of Queensland’s hottest new bands on Easter Saturday night. Looks like the Easter Bunny is coming a little early this year and bringing some tasty treats for you!

Featuring…

Columbia Buffet

The music of Columbia Buffet is radio-ready and plugged directly into the power of punk infused pop music. Their new songs, Tough Guys Don’t Dance and Everything Small (is just a small version of something big), are fine examples of how intense rock music deserves to be married with the sugary sweetness of bubblegum pop. Both songs have that Everlong glide to them and are soaked in summertime romance.

This is incredibly sensitive music with wit and humour, slipped in ever so cleverly, to give the pain of it all a nice neat frame. But don’t be fooled—there is darkness here and it screams at you with the intensity of a Jeremy Enigk spiritual angst explosion.

It makes you want to party and sit alone in your room and cry endlessly over girls named ‘Heather’ and ‘Suzie’, but most of it all it makes you want to dance.

It’s no secret that Columbia Buffet are the meeting ground between a rush of ’90s guitar rock nostalgia and future pop music for those who crave a healthy mix of arty and party.

Shag Rock

Surf, beer and music is Shag Rock’s go.

Started in 2012 at high school, they released an independent EP, Little Primitive, in 2014. Shag Rock was signed to Ian Haug’s (Powderfinger and The Church) label Airlock Records in early 2015. They released their successful self-titled mini-album in April this year, with the single Champagne hitting the national airwaves.

Inspired by the beats of Sticky Fingers, Angus and Julia Stone, Jack Johnson, Ben Howard and the rock ‘n’ roll awesomeness of Powderfinger, ‘the Shaggers’ have been busy plying their music in and around Brisbane and Northern NSW for the past year. Supporting bands like Ocean Alley, Jinja Safari, Lurch and Chief, Sea Legs, Belligerents, Lime Cordiale, and even UK ’80s rockers Jesus Jones as they swung through Brissy and NSW on tour.

Shag Rock are now in pre-production for their 3rd EP which is due for release in 2016. Alex Wilson will be playing some stripped-back acoustic versions of some old tunes, and some new tunes that have never been heard before.

Ivey

Consisting of members Millie (15), Matthew (16), Lachie (18) and Dante (19), Ivey are a young, intriguing, independent band hailing from the Gold Coast.

With a fast-growing fan base, catchy songs and crafted musicianship, the 4-piece are steadily becoming one of Queensland’s most interesting young bands.

After the release of their latest single, Smell Of Smoke, in September of 2015, the band found their film clip getting regular plays on the ABC TV program rage, becoming one Channel V’s ‘discover artists’ and also supporting the likes of The Delta Riggs, Art Of Sleeping, British India and Tired Lion. Ivey have proved that they deliver irresistible recorded works, and are a live act not to be missed. 2016 looks to be a big year for Ivey.
