It’s late 2022 and Tina & The Hams have had an amazing year. Their album ‘Wake The Babies’ received extensive independent airplay in Australia and the US, including the legendary FM station KEXP in Seattle, and debuted in July at number 6 on the Australian Independent Record (AIR) label charts. To round out the year, the Hams release Andromeda - looking outwards at last, with an optimistic gaze and beckoning you to join them in the stars. Produced (again) by Craig Tigwell with Damian Frood and mastered by Joe Carra at Crystal Mastering in Melbourne, the song is chock full of memorable hooks and swelling choruses. Is this an early preview of what’s to come with album 2? Only time will tell. In addition to Andromeda, Tina & The Hams have revisited the early track PetRicHor and given it a tough going over - more closely representing the Hams’ live sound.

Formed in 2017 Black Beer White Lies began writing and jamming, playing a hand full of gigs prior to being offered a chance to record. The melody driven local foursome, anashamedly threash out songs about 'Girls, Cars and Beers' in their catchy sound which gurarantees every foot in the room is tapping. Take a combined sound of bands such as Creed, Maroon 5, Hootie & the Blowfish and throw that shit in the bin. Now turn your attention to the roof rattling sound of Black Beer - White Lies. Melbourne pop rock outfit with Chris Gregan (vox, guitar), Eddie Best (vox, bass), Darren Cameron (lead guitar, vox) and Ewan McCartney (drums, vox).
