The Wandering Lamb knows how good it feels to discover bands that haven’t yet made the big time, we dedicate a lot of time to just that. It makes the musical experience more personal and who doesn’t like showing off a catalogue of great unknowns? Fortunately for you, we just can’t help but show off these artists so you get the diversity you crave and they get all the attention they deserve, it’s a win win!
Weaning Lamb: Tully On Tully
Based In: Melbourne, Aus
Reminds Us Of: The Temper Trap, The Naked and Famous
Tully on Tully are hardly in need of much from us here at Weaning Lambs – but today it’s worth highlighting this powerful, big and uplifting song with an intriguing video to match. They’re currently on tour around Australia so make sure to check them out if you can.
Weaning Lamb: Oliver Sol
Track: Chemical Disguise
Based In: Melbourne, Aus
Reminds Us Of: Royksopp, Hot Chip
Smart, sleek and sharp,” Chemical Disguise” is a track that seamlessly mashes pop leaning ideas with a dark, almost eerie undertow. If you’re in Melbourne, make sure to head to Boney on May 7 to catch Oliver Sol and a full band launch this new single.
Weaning Lamb: Her’s
Based In: Liverpool, Uk
Reminds Us Of: DIIV, The Cure
Super fresh duo Her’s are releasing this track as their very first single. A very impressive offering from such a new band who are making 80’s vibing, drum machine, reverb and chorus laden guitar pop. Sure to give you a sugar headache along with all those perm chemicals you’ve been inhaling.
Weaning Lamb: Consolers
Based In: Hamburg, Germany
Reminds Us Of: Mac Demarco, The Babe Rainbow
Undeniably bright, bouncy and jangly, “Harry” is a sip of sunshine in a bottle. This track is pulled from their Astronaut Babies EP, due out later this year.
Weaning Lamb: Major Leagues
Track: Dream States
Based In: Brisbane
Reminds Us Of: Best Coast, Hinds
“Dream States” is a relaxed guitar pop song that could easily have originated from California instead of Brisbane, maybe it’s all that sunshine. Breezy vocals and uncomplicated positivity make this song the perfect soundtrack for a daydream-filled afternoon.
Weaning Lamb: Basement Revolver
Based In: Ontario, Canada
Reminds Us Of: Alvvays, Waxahatchee
New indie-pop trio Basement Revolver craft elegantly melodic, intriguing and heartfelt tunes that really hit home, just like single Johnny swells with the haunting lyric “it’s a really bad time right now.” Pretty hard to not be hypnotised into their world with just one listen.
