Kosmetika is a mysterious pop music collective, with a fusion of influences from Russia and New Zealand. Birthed in 2017, the 2 piece band was created in Auckland, New Zealand, later shifting to Melbourne, to form the full group of 5. Kosmetika begun to gain attention after the release of their first single ‘Ya Uedu’ which is a catchy psych-pop song, sung in Russian. The 5 piece offer a unique blend of warm 90’s guitar melodies and cool atmospheric synthesiser sounds – perfect to dance to! Keep your eyes and ears open for the upcoming release of Kosmetika’s debut album “Pop Soap” – coming soon!

Terrible Signal
Terrible Signal is the solo project of Vincent Buchanan-Simpson (Hideous Sun Demon / Kitchen People). Recorded in various bedrooms across Fremantle by Jordan Shakespeare, the song and album take strong influence from both the Dunedin Sound and 80’s Australian pop.

Tug burst out onto the music scene last year with their brand of psychedelia with two East Coast tours and the release of their debut album “You’re Not Exceptional, Man”. Formed mid 2017, the band have already gained considerable attention with their intricate, creative musicianship and on-stage energy. Having recently performed alongside the likes of prominent Melbourne acts Davey Lane (of You Am I), Leah Senior and The Pretty Littles, as well as an appearance at Kennedy’s Creek Music Festival with the likes of Jaala and Mildlife; now, the band boys from Tug have got their sights set on their next extended release set for late 2019. In the interim, feast your ear-holes on the living, breathing juggernaut of the Tug live performance and their debut studio album; ʻYou’re Not Exceptional, Manʼ.
