Final tickets are now on sale for Yours and Owl’s new winter warmer festival The Last Frost, you snooze you lose guys so get hustling!
 
With set times at the ready for next Saturday, audiences will be pleased to note there are no clashes on this festival lineup; it’s one stage, doors at 4pm, and all killer, no filler in the pure fire line-up of artists from Australia and New Zealand. Stand, sway, dance, mosh, pirouette, flail your arms, just be ready to be to go all agog in the ‘gong!
 
As for the music line-up, Sydney producer Mookhi will be getting the fire started with her lush rhythmic tapestries, followed by the rising retro star Sloan Peterson just prior to her Bigsound performance, and the radiant dream pop of New Zealand indie darling Fazerdaze set against the blazing setting sun.
Warm your toes by the fire with Brisbane’s beloved Cub Sport  as they give the ‘gong a special preview of their new tracks, and huddle up real close to the soulfully seductive Kite String Tangle still glowing in post-Splendour/new album glee. As the final sweeteners, toast your marshmallows to Sydney psych pop outfit Cloud Control as they slip in a few new tracks and classics for Wollongong audiences, and finish up with a scorching set by 2017’s most elusive band, lured out of hibernation, Violent Soho.
 
Keeping you well-fed and watered, Arepa, Balinese Spice Magic, Jimmy’s Burger Bar and Wandering Woodfire Oven will all be spicing up your life, with bottomless hot chocolates and chai’s from Coco’s Coffee.

violent soho

.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Violent Soho propelled themselves into the hearts, minds and stereos around the world with their wildly well-received LP Hungry Ghost, and 2016’s ARIA #1 Album and massive follow up WACO, an album that spared no punches with hits ‘Viceroy’ and ‘Like Soda’, and finally swept the band up on a series of sold out dates on 2 x ginormous national tours. Breaking away from the studio for this special celebration, Wollongong audiences are about to be royally treated to the punk rock frenzied genius of this Brissy band as they sneak in one last ‘gong show for the year. Get sweaty!

.

cloud control

.

Sydney psych pop outfit Cloud Control have always been defined by happy chaos, ever since they formed on a whim for a university band competition in 2005 and went on to create the ARIA nominated first album Bliss Release. Since, the band have become internationally renowned for their dynamic live performances, lush layered harmonies, and now their grungy hit new single ‘Rainbow City’ which they’ll be bringing to the stage in Wollongong. With the forthcoming third full-length and self-produced album due out later this year — their first since 2013’s acclaimed sophomore, Dream Cave –  the band are coming full circle and making their return to a uni campus ready to celebrate. 

.

the kite string tangle

.

Just in time for The Kite String Tangle’s debut self-titled album to be released on July 14 and to properly get under your skin, the Brisbane based, ARIA nominated producer has already been treating your ear canals to singles ‘Selfish’ and ‘The Prize’, a return to pop tinged electronic and Danny Harley’s soulful vocals. Harley has enjoyed a great run since the release of his breakthrough single ‘Given The Chance’ in 2013 including sold out national tours and appearances at Falls Festival, SXSW and Splendour In The Grass under his belt, the highly anticipated debut album has been a long time coming with the ‘gong set to be amongst the first to experience it. 

.

cub sport

.

Brisbane’s Cub Sport had a career-defining 2016 with their dream-pop debut album This Is Our Vice. Featuring well-loved singles ‘Only Friend’, ‘I Can’t Save You’, and the massive hit ‘Come On Mess Me Up’the record launched the band into the stratosphere and saw them come in at #24 in triple j’ Hottest 100. Having received critical acclaim internationally, the band spent the majority of 2016 on the road celebrating with their legion of new of fans. Amongst headline tours of Australia, North American, the UK and Europe, Cub Sport also joined The 1975 for their Australian arena tour after catching the attention of the group’s front man Matty Healy. Now, Cub Sport have finished putting the final touches on album number two, set for release late 2017. The first single off the new album, gospel-inspired single ‘O Lord’, shows a band hitting their stride and truly making their mark. Check out their goosebump-inducing Triple J Like A Version cover of Kanye West’s ‘Ultralight Beam’ if you need any more convincing of their genius.

.

fazerdaze

.

New Zealand indie darling Fazerdaze, aka Amelia Murray, has been preparing to take over the world with her new release Morningside, her first full-length record described aptly by NME as “elegant dream pop”. Mesmerizing and captivating audiences with every performance, Murray has already achieved so much in such a short time. She’s been praised by NME, played with Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Connan Mockasin, was invited to join the Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal, joined the line-up for The Great Escape Festival, and is rounding it all up with a short Australian tour this year featuring Wollongong!

sloan peterson

.

Although only 24, Sydney’s Sloan Peterson lives by a soundtrack of ‘50s guitar pop and modern garage rock. Songwriter Joe Jackson is immediately influenced by everything from Elvis, to Wanda Jackson or the fashion statements of Nancy Sinatra and David Bowie – Sloan Peterson is the sum of these influences that adds up to so much more. Jackson’s music bursts with warmth that can be heard in new single ‘105’. With a self-titled album forthcoming in 2017 and a spot at Bigsound and Freedom 2.0 on the horizon this is clearly only the beginning with Jackson set for take-off.

.

mookhi

.

Olympia Henshaw aka Sydney producer Mookhi, grew up in both Hong Kong and India where she absorbed her musical surroundings, favouring dark eastern-based scales, chords and melodies.  From these exotic beginnings, Henshaw gained quick following as a complex and sophisticated beat maker. Mookhi delves into the genre of electronic hip-hop in the most seductive way, building lush tapestries of sound live that are unique with each performance. ‘Foul Play’ is Mookhi’s first single and unsurprisingly it’s already flying up the Triple J Unearthed charts complete with lush vocals from teaming up with the soulful Billy Fox.

AMNPLIFY – DB

My nickname is “The Amnplifier”. Why? Because around here my focus is on being a conduit for providing greater outcomes that people come here for. My day to day “work” is living in the moment, and I love helping others concentrate on finding their connection to themselves through their experiences.

Why start a music environment? The truth is I love music, I love writing, and I love life. I work with musicians every day, and I feel certain that I will be until they put me in the ground. I have been managing people in businesses of some sort for over thirty five years so along the way I have developed some “wisdom” from my regular and constant “observations”.

Amnplify your experience. That is what we want you to do here, and if you want to let me know why you do, or don’t, shoot me a message on Facebook.

Hope you enjoy yourself here and find something that hits you somewhere.
