Magic Bones (Single Launch)

Magic Bones (Single Launch)

Friday 28 April, 2017.

Melbourne garage punk outfit Magic Bones are today thrilled to announce their brand new single ‘Hotter Than The Sun’ taken from their forthcoming debut album due mid 2017. The band will also be touring the east coast throughout April in support of the single. The album was recorded by band member Richard Bowers (Horror My Friend, The Harlots) and mixed by award-winning producer Steven Schram (San Cisco, Tiny Little Houses, Paul Kelly). Off the back of a successful Pozible campaign, the band will also release a limited edition 7” for ‘Hotter Than The Sun’ accompanied with a mystery cover song. Having formed in 2010, Magic Bones have become known for their raw, high-energy shows, and unique sound with a nostalgic twist of 60s garage, 70s rock, and 80s new wave punk spirit. Magic Bones have received strong online and radio support from stations such as Triple J for their past three successive singles, including ‘Danger I Am’, which spent eight weeks in the Australian Independent Radio Charts (AIR), peaking at number 2 and was also Rage’s Indie Clip Of The Week.

After experiencing single success and racking up some impressive main supports, Magic Bones are gearing up for what promises to be their most exciting year.

On Saturday 6th May Yah Yah’s will be gettin’ in with the rock’n’roll set when we host a very special side show for the 11th annual Cherry Rock Festival! Two International guests in Bala (Spain) and Bottlecap (Sweden) will be joined by local psych’ blues outfit Child to take over the Yah Yah’s bandstand for an absolute ball tearer of a night, offering anyone who’ll unfortunately miss this years festival of rock in AC/DC Lane the chance to catch these great acts before heading abroad. Bala are an exciting female two piece from the land of bull fighting, with an amped up and fuzzed out sound that harken back to the intense rock bands of the 90’s with tinges of grunge, underground punk and stoner riffage. Bottlecap is a trio of young skinny men from Gothenburg City and you if you like a wild show, you will love them.

Bad Pony Vs Swim Season

Growing up and finding a place within the bustling city of Sydney is sure to instil in a band a sense of tirelessness and hard work, and it’s safe to say Bad Pony are one of, if not the hardest working band in Australia. They just don’t stop!

Since releasing their debut EP ‘Limbo’ in 2015, the Sydney-based quintet has independently released three self-produced singles, all with national radio success. On the touring front, this premier indie outfit have clocked up thousands upon thousands of kilometres with three national tours since 2015 and an appearance at Music Matters, Singapore 2016.

The Smokes – Room Is On Fire – Classic Album Series

The Smokes – Room Is On Fire – Classic Album Series

Saturday 3 June, 2017.

The Smokes
Saturday June 3rd
Classic album series performance of Room on Fire.

Possibly the world’s greatest The Strokes tribute band, The Smokes, return to Yah Yahs stage to perform Strokes sophomore album Room on Fire!

The Nike of indie rock returned triumpantly with an instant classic that found them remain in the DNA pool they helped rejuvinate, as opposed to breaking out into tedius and perhaps expected arena rock. An album that again was full of indie-disco dancefloor fillers as they posed as a Cars cover band (cover band you say?) on lead single 12:51, the throbbing bass riding hurricane Reptilia and boozy last drinks call out of The End Has No End.

So following the sold out performance of Is This It last month that was pretty hectic, the The Smokes will indeed be playing Room On Fire in its entirety from start to finish. Dust off your old double denim get up, have a look around for your favourite vintage dress and buy a presale to not miss out on all the fun.
