This is String Elephants, the self-described “bunch of lads making fast, catchy songs with lots of sweet melodies, funky bass lines and lively drum beats.” This still is from their video Reflection, which you can find here. Check them out on Friday night at the Phoenix as they share the stage with Organic Mechanic and Wesley & The Crushers.
Lacklustre Records will be putting on their last show at the current headquarters – one of the more tight-knit yet high-energy venues in the nation’s capital – so help say goodbye with this Friday’s show featuring Carb on Carb, Zen Haircuts, Lost Coast and Azim Zain. On the same night, Mr Wolf will be hosting the launch of Young Monks’ new single “Bayside Suicide” – tune into 2XXFM’s LocalnLive this week as we chat to them all about it!
Also, tune into LocalnLive on Friday, DJ Razzle Dazzle will be having a chat with Canberra indie folk stars Brother Be, who will be launching their new video for the single “Nine Dollars” at the Polish White Eagle Club.
