You will no doubt remember our 2018 review of ‘See Me’, the sublime single from New Jersey based punk rock band The Gray Vines. Fast forward 4 years and their lead singer, Jake Hoffman, is now performing solo under the name HOFFMAN, and his debut single, ‘Reflection’, is out now. ‘Reflection’ is the title track of HOFFMAN’s new album.
Make way for what might just be your new favourite song, from a singer that needs to be taken seriously. Leo Sawiken, formerly of The Chordaes, is an artist, poet, multi-talented musician, native New Yorker and expert melody maker. Who also knows his way round a nifty blazer. And his latest drop, ‘Born Too Late’, is a Talk Talk-esque, rock-light delight.
If you’re an Australian of a certain age (ie. me), and you hear the name Andrew Farriss, your ears immediately prick up. The acclaimed singer songwriter has long been synonymous with Aussie rock legends INXS, for whom he was not just a founding member, but also the keyboardist, guitarist and main composer.
