Sons Et Al. ‘See Me Run’

Melbourne five-piece Sons et al. released their debut single ‘See Me Run’ earlier this month. It’s a little bit dancey, a little bit summery, and very, very slick, with just enough slightly darker undertones to differentiate it from a lot of otherwise similar music.

Georgia Fair @ The Toff, 12th Of July

There’s only so much I can say about a Georgia Fair live show that I haven’t already said, given that I think I’ve seen them play nearly ten times now.

Gig Review: Georgia Fair @ The Toff, 13th July

Last night Georgia Fair played yet another pretty much faultless set in Melbourne, this time at a slightly larger venue, The Toff. It was indicative of the quality of their music that the venue was sold out, and with their debut full-length album on the way, this is a band that looks set to make it really really big. And if this show was any indication, they deserve to.
