Sunshine Coast’s music sweethearts, Betty Taylor are dropping a lil joy on our Tuesday with their latest single, ‘Can’t Get Enough.’  This infectious anthem, penned by Sophie Patrick and Aidan Hogg, takes listeners on a dreamy journey through the highs of love and infatuation.

Capturing the warm fuzziness of budding romance, the track invites you into a world of saucy daydreams and irresistible allure. Betty Taylor’s signature blend of infectious melodies and heartfelt lyricism shines through, evident in their previous success of Fuck You.

With international tours on the horizon, including dates in the US, UK, and EU, Betty Taylor is gearing up for an extraordinary year ahead. ‘Can’t Get Enough’ is out today, and fans can check the Betty Taylor website for upcoming shows, including performances supporting Temper Trap and Old Mervs.

The Smashed Avocados – My Name Is Jim

Hailing from Sydney’s Inner West, The Smashed Avocados are a three-piece force of nature on a mission to reignite the pub rock scene. Formed in late 2022, they haven’t wasted a moment, embarking on a non-stop journey to carve their niche in the Australian music landscape.

Lifted from their debut EP Rockamole, My Name is Jim, is a prime example of their electrifying sound. This absolute pub rock banger boasts an infectious chorus that will have you tapping your feet and singing along in no time. The sound draws clear inspiration from Aussie rock legends like The Angels and The Chats, making it instantly familiar yet undeniably fresh.

Get ready to wrap your ears around a quintessential dose of Aussie rock with a modern twist. The Smashed Avocados are here to stay, so keep an eye (and ear) out for these rising stars!

Teenage Dads -Weaponz

Teenage Dads, the 2023 Breakthrough Artist Of The Year ARIA Award winners, just dropped their new single ‘Weaponz’ and to boot, have dropped word of a massive Australian & New Zealand tour.

‘Weaponz’ is a bit different from their usual vibe, giving off a punchy, Strokes-esque alt-rock feel. According to the band, it’s all about having the guts to go after what you want, even if it means taking a metaphorical bullet or wielding a bazooka.

To make the release extra special, they’ve also thrown in the official music video for ‘Weaponz,’ check it out below.
