#27 ft. School Dance, The Vanns, Nearly Ontario, EAT FAST and Júniús Meyvant


Weaning Lambs means a lot to us here at TWL. It’s an opportunity to find amazing artists that may not fit the mould of broader interest, showcasing what’s really going on under the surface and letting us give them a bit of the credit many of them are over due. We put a lot of consideration into what we pick, so with 100% certainty, here are this fortnight’s selection.


school DanceWeaning Lamb: School Dance

Track: Field

Based In: Philadelphia/Denver

Flavours Of: Jamie XX, HTRK

This new duo out of the States are creating pure dream pop for those who are slightly troubled by their sleeping patterns. Ethereal, sparse but chilling and troubled at the same time, with a slighted messed up video to match.


The-Vanns-National-Tour1Weaning Lamb: The Vanns

Track: I’m Not The One

Based In: Kiama, NSW

Flavours Of: Kings of Leon (early), Sticky Fingers

Already touring nationally with fantastic momentum off the back of this rollicking single, The Vanns are off to a cracking start. This high energy single will definitely get a a few punters moving at their live shows.


JMWeanling Lambs: Nearly Ontario

Track: Tin

Based In: Melbourne

Flavours Of: Radiohead, Bjork

Local producer Simon Lam has been making a name for himself in recent years having worked with a number of Melbourne acts such as Kllo and I’lls, yet this song off his solo Showers EP is just starting to stir some excitement. This video was made three years ago and does a fantastic job of showcasing this beautiful track.


JM realWeanling Lambs: Júniús Meyvant

Track: Neon Experience

Based In: Iceland

Flavours Of: Charles Bradley, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Neon Experience is an uplifting neo-soul tune that comes together with a great little video that shows Meyvant travelling around his home town with his young son. Presented in a grainy, 70’s vibe, it suits the track perfectly. He’s on tour in Europe in September.


Eat FastWeaning Lamb: EAT FAST

Track: Byker Drone

Based In: Somewhere in the UK, why so secretive boys?

Flavours Of: Ty Segall, Royal Blood

Byker Drone is a slice of melodic garage rock drenched in fuzzy guitars, rambunctious drums and reverb heavy vocals. It’s lifted from their new EP Fenham Dread (Lock) where this song sits in good company with three other belting garage bangers.
