past event

Description

Over the past year as a band, Civic Video have honed their shimmery, swirling indie rock sound that seeks to get audiences to feel deeply and want to dance. Riding on the high of the overwhelmingly positive reception of their first single track ‘Letters’, the band’s latter three singles ‘Wasted Days’, ‘If I Could Make You Dance’ and ‘Shaky Hands’ have all received radio play from the likes of triple j’s Home and Hosed, 2RRR, 2SSR, and Hobart’s Edge Radio. CV has been knuckling down over the summer and is set to put on a killer live show full of soaring riffs, upbeat tempos and silky indie rock goodness. Following tours with both The Rions and Rum Jungle, and with a live set sure to leave you craving more, Civic Video are rearing to hit the stage and put on a night that’ll be impossible to forget.

The Sunday Estate formed in 2018 so that singer/guitarist Conor O’Reilly and drummer Sven Andrlon could live up to their frequent claims to co-workers at their casual job that they were one day going to be musicians. That said, at the time, the most they had to go off was a promise that Sven could play a Green Day track on drums and a handful of songs that Conor had written at home.

That was not going to stop them, though, so they took to fleshing out a line-up, adding Tom Flynn, to play guitar, and primary-school friend Finn Potter to play bass via an Instagram story. Finn had never touched a bass guitar and Tom didn’t own a guitar amp, but all were avid fans of similar music, with a few influences quickly sticking: 80’s post-punk and pop, 2000’s indie “revival”, and contemporaries like The 1975 and The National.

The band spent 2018 perfecting their craft, working on Conor’s songs and their live set, even if they only played one gig – performed with a fake, throwaway band name “The Bumbag Boys”. 2019 saw the band gather momentum as they grew in confidence and in size. After attending the “Bumbag Boys” gig in another band, David Stano joined also on guitar, and The Sunday Estate played their first show under their new, permanent name a couple weeks later.

Off the back of the growing buzz around the band and packed live shows, The Sunday Estate recently signed to indie tastemaker label Mirror Records (Sloan Peterson / Clea / Charlie Collins).

Hailing from Meanjin/Brisbane, queer-fronted 5-piece dream rock outfit Mt. Nadir has been

setting stages alight. Bass heavy and guitar-driven, Nadir blends alt-rock, shoegaze and dream-pop, creating a unique soundscape that fans can’t get enough of. The band is fronted by Frankie Rosbrook (they/them), who has become renowned for their folk-style storytelling, emotive vocals and electric stage presence.

Mt Nadir’s debut EP Growing Pain, released in June 2023, has quickly amassed over 80k Spotify streams, featuring on Spotify’s Fresh Finds Indie (190k), as well as several Apple Music playlists (New Music Daily, New In Rock & Indie + Chill) and Triple J + Unearthed multiple times.

The band have been a mainstay on local community radio, with You & Me featuring at #17 and Growing Pain featuring at #12 on the 4ZZZ Weekly top 20 charts. They have also featured across renowned music publications Purplesneakers, PileRats & The AU Review.

Mt. Nadir’s high-energy, emotive live shows have seen them booked on line-ups with Tia Gostelow, Beddy Rays, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers, Hope D, Jem Cassar-Daley, Peach Fur & Cry Club, as well as headlining and packing out iconic Brisbane venues, including Felons Barrel Hall & Black Bear Lodge.

The band toured the east coastin 2023 to celebrate their EP release, selling out The Bearded Lady in Meanjin and The Gaso (Upstairs) in Naarm/Melbourne.

2024 is looking bright for Mt. Nadir played shows alongside Jack Davies & The Bush Chooks, Adam Newling, Grace Cummings and appeared at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl. The band are also gearing up to open for The Grogans on April 5 and will be releasing their latest single Knife’s Edge mid april and touring off the back of it.
