We Are the In Crowd

We Are The In Crowd didn’t require much time to live up to their name.

Formed in 2009 and signed by Hopeless Records shortly after, this is a band that had all their dominoes poised and ready to fall in their favor in quick succession. Armed with an irresistible combo of male and female vocals, the handful of vibrant songs the group have released are only tastes of what’s on the horizon.

Ben Abraham

In 2003 Ben Abraham decided he never wanted to sing again. The stunning career choice came after years of musical insecurity and tireless efforts to impress people; performing renditions of other people's songs he was told were cool at the time. Content with leaving the dream of music behind, Ben turned instead to his screenwriting studies and fell in love with the art of film and the power of story.

Aleister X

Aleister X adds darkness to blackness and takes the musichall to the dancehall, engaging in some old skool Arthur Askey clowning along the way. This is the sound of light entertainment back from the dead and at its very best. So put your dancing shoes on, listen up, and get in touch with your dark side.

Flowers

There is more than one group under the name “Flowers”. 1. Flowers was the first name of Australian band Icehouse. In the years 1977-1980 they built a strong reputation in the Sydney pub circuit as a more intelligent, New Wave style band - at some contrast to the two guitars, drum and bass style that was otherwise popular at the time. Their popularity, but difficulty in finding an attractive recording deal, led them to be known as the most the popular band in Sydney without a record. This was finally resolved in 1980 with the release of their debut album.
