Admittedly, I was 9 years old the year Grinspoon released their debut album, ‘Guide to Better Living’, so I can’t say with certainty where I was when I first heard it. What I do know is how much this band and their music shaped a better part of my teenage years, and now adult life.
At the early age of 22 years old, James Blake released the visionary and era defining EP CMYK, while his debut, self titled album a year later, earned him unanimous praise and worldwide success. His first two albums revealed his innovative musical identity and the constants of his sound; crisp production, mastery of bass frequencies, the combination of organic and digital elements, his natural talent on the piano and his hypnotic vocals. These attributes were amply demonstrated on second album Overgrown, deservedly winning him the Mercury Music Prize which led to a Grammy Nomination for Best New Artist.
The biggest breakthrough band of 2014, 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, last night at the 2015 ARIA Awards announced they will return to Australia for a run of east coast dates in September – October 2016, presented by Qantas.
The band, who will tour the world in 2016, will close off their global run of dates with three very special shows for their Australian fans in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
