Auxilla

"They say Auxilla have cut the power before, and I’m surprised it didn’t happen again. There was so much sound and energy pumping off the stage, not to mention the seizurematic light show by Tomass Begg. To really enjoy Auxilla, you need to be ready for anything. From the gentle opening of the 6 on the Street doco, we were pulled into anything from frantic dance, to dirty distorted grunge, to the strange addition of punk.

Ernest Ellis

‘Bad Blood’ is the first single from Dew Process’ newest signing, Ernest Ellis. It’s a little slice of what is to come for this talented musician from Sydney. Ernest Ellis draws a lot of inspiration from the beat poet who took the famous pancake tour of America, Jack Kerouac. That sense of exploration and adventure, and the waywardness of the characters permeates its way through both his music and lyricism.
