Howlite are teaming up with Sydney pop-rock legends Dande and The Lion to throw an end of year party at Grace Darling Hotel Basement!

Howlite are launching 'Olympia', a pillowy-pop delight that further showcases the bands affinity for elemental, cinematic dreamscapes. The song offers a second taste from their forthcoming EP, Not Here, and builds on the ethereal, indie foundations of their previous release ‘Reducer’ - a track that was featured on Spotify’s Fresh Finds.

Dande and The Lion are launching 'Twilight Highway', their latest EP full of punchy indie-rock sound, rich with energy. The EP features their break out singles, 'Stardust' and 'Twilight Highway', and offers a bright introduction to a band whose success are sure to come with longevity, and who may just become your new favourite!

Supported on the night by The Bone Shack, with their punchy tunes and frenetic energy, and Dumb Whales, with their loose jams and contagious hooks, this will be a night to remember!


Join Seb Szabo and his band to celebrate the release of his debut single "Tears We've Been Holding Back" at The Grace Darling Hotel Upstairs on Thursday, December 5th.

After an impressive first six months as a solo artist, highlighted by an appearance supporting San Cisco at a sold-out Alexander Theatre in April, Seb has set about putting his big-hearted songs to record with the help of producer Josh Barber (Gretta Ray) at The Aviary Studios.

"Tears We've Been Holding Back", an ode and farewell to a special friendship, is a perfect encapsulation of his sound. Combining rich, warm vocals, tender lyrics and an expansive musicality reminiscent of early Coldplay, the result is a passionate interplay between textured guitars, melodic string arrangements and powerful rhythms.

Seb and his band (Jack, Sim, Fi, Sean and Tom) will bring his sweeping musical vision to the stage at The Grace Darling Hotel for an uplifting night of big-hearted indie rock and he is immensely excited to share more of his songs with you all.
