LISTEN: Australia’s biggest and best newcomers

We’ve been really heavily into the Australian music scene lately, so we thought we should show them so love back by showcasing some of Oz’s best emerging talent.

The Love Junkies

The Love Junkies are from Fremantle. and have recently been signed to New World Artists. Their début album, Maybelene is out now and new single, Baby, Come Home lives up to the passionate, energetic fuzzy rock sounds that we’ve heard from them in the past. This three piece have a had a great year so far and long may it continue for them. If you like The Black Keys or Kings of Leon but like your rock a little darker and heavier then this is the band for you.

The song featured below, Oxymoron is perfect for a Monday morning, frankly it really gets you going and alert. A very nice, succinct track that’s under 2 and a half minutes, forget your coffee, put The Love Junkies on and you’ll be energised beyond the simple means of caffeine.


Cub Sport are from Brisbane. They make melodious indie pop that’s just so addictive. Their sunny disposition is exactly what I like to see in a band, a band that is having as much fun as possible making music. Their latest EP, Paradise,is a magnificent effort, sweet synths, mellow vocals and tropical vibes, it is a reminder of summer. If you like fellow Australian band San Cisco, then there’s a big chance that you’ll love these guys too.

I’ve chosen my favourite track from their last EP, Told You So, which you can listen to below. Scream is an anthemic track that shows a little more to Cub Sport‘s sound, I’d say like an upbeat The XX, an atmospheric pop song that soars as it reaches it’s climax.


Brisbane four piece, Hey Geronimo are just a ray of sunshine. They make epic indie pop, that’s so uplifting that you’ll be up in space in no time. It just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t post one of their videos, they put so much effort and creativity into them, that it would be a crime to just post the song from soundcloud. Their latest single, Lazer Gun Show, taken from their upcoming second EP out 4th October, is a big production with lots of energy to the track, synth laden guitar riffs and in true Hey Geronimo style, it’s full of quirky sounds.
