One of Perth’s hardest-working bands, The Tommyhawks, have released a new single, Summertime. In spite of its title, the living ain’t necessarily easy…
“Summertime is about coming out the other side of depression, or being in a bad place,” explains vocalist/guitarist Addison Axe. “I've struggled with my own mental health over the last year and the whole upcoming EP explores that journey through self 're' discovery.”
Making the most of their impressive 2017 momentum, Fremantle-faves Boat Show have released a new single, The Big Smoke. The song is an energetic lament on the perennial Perth-friends-moving-to-Melbourne imbroglio.
"It's like trying to run away from a ghost that you think is haunting your house but it's actually haunting you, so it follows,” says vocalist, Ali Flintoff. “Do you like my metaphor? I'm pretty witty, hey."

But RTRFM’s essence can, for these purposes anyway, be broken down into three words.
