Buried in Verona

Buried In Verona are a five piece metal band from Sydney which formed late 2006. After a few months of writing they entered the studio to record which has now become their debut album “Circle the Dead”. “Circle the Dead” is an unforgettable mix of intensity and melody. The band’s skillful songwriting flows effortlessly from technical riffing, blast beats, brutal breakdowns, shredding guitar solo’s and demonic screams to soaring vocals choruses, clean guitar parts and classically orchestrated sections.

The Bites

The Bites were a 3-piece band from Melbourne, Australia. They formed in 2001 and dissolved in late 2005. The songs are the most important thing. They are short, sharp, state their point and then they stop. Rhythm and melody are equally crucial in The Bites. The nucleus of The Bites are Kirsty and Rene. Other members have come and gone since the band started in 2001. Their philosophy is one of maintaining true independence and complete artistic control over all aspects of their music.

Tame Impala

Tame Impala is a psychedelic rock band from Perth, Australia. It is the project of Kevin Parker who writes and records almost all of the music by himself. The live band consists of Kevin Parker (lead guitar and vocals), Dominic Simper (guitar and synth), Jay Watson (synth and backing vocals), Julien Barbagallo (drums), Nick Allbrook (ex-bassist) who decided to leave the band mid 2013 and is now being replaced by their close friend, Cam Avery (from The Growl).

Their name refers to the impala, a medium sized antelope. Their musical sound draws from a wide range of influences (most notably '60s and '70s psychedelic rock) and they like to see themselves as "a steady flowing psychedelic groove rock band that emphasizes dream-like melody."

The band signed a worldwide deal with label Modular Recordings in mid 2008, releasing their self titled EP in late 2008 and the single 'Sundown Syndrome' in 2009. Their debut album, "Innerspeaker", was released in 2010 to widespread critical acclaim. Their sophomore, "Lonerism", was released on October 5th, 2012, again to wide acclaim. Their third album, "Currents", followed in the summer of 2015.

A fourth studio album, The Slow Rush, is scheduled to be released in 2020. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.

Paulini

Paulini has been heralded as one of the finest vocalists and performers to come out of Australia.

Making it through to the final four, she won the hearts of a nation with her angelic, five octave range, and engaging personality.
