Kingswood is a four-piece rock outfit from Melbourne Australia consisting of Fergus Linacre (lead vocals), Alex Laska (lead guitar & backing vocals), Jeremy Hunter (bass & vocals) and Justin Debrincat (drums & backing vocals). Since releasing their debut singles ‘Yeah Go Die’, ‘Medusa’ and ‘She’s My Baby’ in 2012, the band have been touring locally and overseas. Kingswood has just returned from Nashville, recording their debut album Microscopic Wars with producer Vance Powell. The first single from the album ‘Sucker Punch’ is out now and they are currently touring Australia to support the album’s recent release.

Sydney party-starters The Griswolds – Christopher Whitehall (vocals/guitar), Daniel Duque-Perez (guitar/synth), Tim John (bass guitar) and Lachlan West (drummer) – are an indie rock group that make music you can dance to. Following the release of their singles ‘Mississippi’ and ‘Heart of a Lion’ in 2012, the band has played shows all over Australia to ever-increasing crowds. In January 2014, the band flew to LA to meet producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, Foster the People, M83) and went to Hobby Shop Studios to record their new album. Their latest singles ‘Beware the Dog’, ‘If You Wanna Stay’, ‘16 Years’ and ‘Right on Track’ harness the striking growth in The Griswolds songwriting maintaining their prominent synths and keys without losing their party flavours. The Griswolds are currently touring Australia with their first album Be Impressive – available now.
