The Olympics: Athlete v.s Journalist

The Olympics have recently finished and Australia have done extremely well as most people would agree but some people, particularly journalists, don’t agree. Luckily here at SK we are a new breed of non-judgmental journalists who are gonna give you the scoop on why judging olympic athletes is plainly not on. For an athlete to even compete in the Olympics they must be at an incredibly high standard in both their sport and mentality. However, some journalists, that have probably never achieved anything more than a participation award in theirRead More

Waxing lyrical about new WAAX lyric video

Dark times have provided impetus for electrifying Brisbane rockers WAAX’s new single This Everything, a fresh take on a lyric video and a tour. It is almost hard to believe but their debut EP Holy Sick – and radio success with single ‘I For An Eye’, was 12 months ago. Since then the founding core trio of Marie DeVita (vocals), Tom Bloomfield (drums) and Ewan Birtwell (guitars) and newbies Chris Antolak (guitars) and Tom Griffin (bass) have recorded their second forthcoming EP at Plutonium Studios with producer Miro Mackie toRead More

SPLENDOUR 2016 RUN DOWN

Two of our writers here at SK, Emma & Sally, were lucky enough to experience the three day joy that is Splendour in The Grass 2016 and while the rest of us were a little bitter that we weren’t ALL able to relish in the mud free, music mania weekend, we were able to live vicariously through their recounts and stories. That’s why over the next few days numerous reviews and killer stories will flood the SK feed which we hope will either allow you to experience the weekend for the first timeRead More

Better When Bixby Canyon Drop

Brisbane based grunge/rock band Bixby Canyon are back with their upcoming release Better When. Their 90’s rock influence (which is most definitely back in fashion) is a great element, but most importantly is their emotions felt and placed into the song. Lead vocalist Jake Wood’s heartfelt and raw vocals fused together by drummer Dylan Catt and rhythmic bass player Campbell Harris creates a recipe for speaker blearing opportunities and a mosh-driven crowd at their shows. The song is an epic experience, and to top it off, drummer Dylan Catt’s skillsRead More
