WHY I LIKE BRIDGEMARY KISS…
by Jake Stone (Rolling Stone, The Brag, SMH Metro)
“I don’t care what people call us; I just want to be good” says impish UK ex-pat singer/guitarist Brett Ramson. “I want people to sing along to it, and relate.” Bridgemary Kiss from Sydney’s Northern Beaches teams propulsive punk energy with classic Britpop, and an infectious sense of swagger and fun. Despite being barely out of school, they’re still the most promising rock band I’ve seen in a long while.

Chasing Bailey

The first single off Chasing Bailey’s debut album, Long Story Short, is called Little By Little. The song itself might be about a troubled relationship, but its title neatly sums up the determination of this young band. For while each member is still only in their late teens to early-twenties, Chasing Bailey’s dream of recording their first full-length album began all the way back in the year 2000. And now, with the release of Long Story Short, it’s finally come true.
