Oceanics ‘Jukebox’

Oceanics are a Gold Coast band who make happy indie pop music that’s irresistibly catchy and very, very fun. They make is seem so easy, as well. This year saw the release of their debut EP, ‘Bright People’, which is seemingly full of nothing but singles.

Umpire ‘Corner An Owl In An Alcove’

Based in Perth, Umpire have been around the music scene for the better part of five years now, but only released their debut album, ‘Now We’re Active’, last year.

The wonderfully titled single ‘Corner An Owl In An Alcove’ is the perfect example of this.
