Raw Power

LESS THAN JAKE ON THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW
Recent Australian visitors Less Than Jake recently appeared as the musical guests on The Chris Gethard Show on truTV.

You can check out their performance that includes ‘Bomb Drop‘, ‘The Science Of Selling Yourself Short‘ and ‘Look What Happened‘ now below.

BLUE VELVET RELEASE NEW VIDEO CLIP
Sydney four-piece Blue Velvet have released their new single ‘You’re Not Going Home‘ via a video clip, and also announced Brisbane and Melbourne launches to back up the Sydney launch over the weekend.

The single is a followup to the release of their debut EP ‘Collide‘.

‘You’re Not Going Home’ feels like a sort of continuation from what we talked about in ‘Collide’. The song is about assessing toxic relationships and moving on from aspects of life that you really invested in.

Catch them at Bloodhound Bar in Brisbane this Sunday 19th November and December 10th at Gasometer in Melbourne.

You can check out the video clip below.

THE ELEPHANT TREES RELEASE NEW SINGLE
Fast-rising Manchester alt-rock band The Elephant Trees have released their new single, ‘Open Up‘.

Singer & songwriter Martha Phillips comments;

Open Up is story of falling in love with someone when you’re not ready to fall. Instead of living in denial, it’s an encouragement to go with the flow, embrace and celebrate it.

Check out a lyric video for the single below.
