Perth has quickly become a melting pot for some of the hottest acts to take on not just Australia, but the world. SLY WITHERS are proudly continuing this rich vein of form with the news they have recently signed to Dew Process (home of Tired Lion, Mallrat, Bloc Party) and Select Music (Amy Shark, Ruby Fields, Skeggs). In celebration of their new single 'Sad Guy', the indie-punk darlings of the west will be bringing their must see live show on the road to win more hearts and minds across the country.
Sly Withers is a band you need to see to truly appreciate. Dual frontmen Sam and Jono weave heartfelt, everyday lyrics over big riffs and a masterful rhythm section, as their clever words find resonance in the lives of every Australian. Sad Guy hints at the dread and dramatic ending of relationships, the fear of growing old and alone, and the resolve to get up off the floor and move on. "Yeah it seems overcast, but that never seems to last" declares Jono, before the band drops in, reminding you "this ain't a love song" if it wasn't quite clear.
Tobias launches his long anticipated album 'Naughts & Ones' at the Gaso Bandroom this Queen's Birthday Eve. With support from two of Melbourne's best emerging songsmiths; Lone Rae Thomson and Darvid Thor.
Hengeveld pens melodically vivid songs, riddled with unexpected hooks. A distinctively sylvan voice, plumbing personal experiences with wry lyrical candor. His third solo Long-Player 'Naughts & Ones' is a triumphant mirror-maze of snappy pop tunes set in a hinterland of darker ballads.
