Melbourne based 4-piece psychedelia outfit Indigo Children, brings a blend of 60's style pop infused melodies and contemporary psych rock elements.

With all members formerly residing from Warrnambool, their music varies in mood, ranging from dream pop in the lighter areas, whilst also delivering contrast through exploring darker sounds and thought.


No Better is a new-born collaborative project. It seeks to bring together multiple voices and ideas and engage in a thoughtful and respectful discussion across various mediums, including music, film, literature, and visual art. Still in its infancy its first expression is a 4-piece band with influences in blues, indie folk, and psychedelia.

At its core No Better believes that the very term ‘better’ acts to reduce or degrade by implying a ‘lesser’. No Better, therefore, attempts to create a community with a focus on collaboration and mutual respect. This extends from an engagement with a diverse range of ideas, and a respect for the communities, contexts, and the environments that we engage with.


Ben Whiting is genuinely stumped about what he would be doing, if not music. He is what happens when a 90’s kid puts The Police and Bob Marley on high rotation, sits in a beanbag in an old aircraft hanger to watch his extended family play regular jam nights, and is then mentored in playing and touring from age 13.

​Those early influences have guided and continue to teach him, and the result is a gifted singer-songwriter comfortable with using a broad palette of inspiration to create a sound that is wholly his own.
