Brisbane based four-piece Good Boy have topped the first Amrap Metro Chart of 2020 with their latest tune, Teens of The Stone Age. It’s a typically endearing piece of punk-fuelled rock opening with a warm guitar riff before switching gears into an urgent and gnarly zone. Good Boy garnered plenty of well-deserved recognition in the 2010s and they’ve kicked off the 20s in stellar form. Not far behind, Aerborn’s latest slice of synth-laden pop, Show Me, has debuted at number five. Building on her reputation as one of Queensland’s most exciting emerging producers, Aerborn’s latest is the perfect slice of summer thanks to her weightless vocals, dreamy production and the appearance of a quirky glockenspiel hook.

Leading the Way on the Regional Chart

Kicking off in early 2018, jangle-rock trio Elder quickly made their mark on the Brisbane music scene with their distinct sound. Their latest single, Commute sits at number three and number ten on the Metro and Regional Charts respectively. The track drifts somewhere on the dreamy end of the post-rock spectrum with a unique edge thanks to some ghostly vocal melodies. Sydney six piece, Peachfield have snuck into the Regional Chart at number nine with their latest tune, Laneways. It’s an alt-country ballad, brimming with nostalgia and detailing the innocence of primary school days, boosted by some gorgeous vocals from Grace Schiavello.

Beyond the Charts

Formed in Sydney back in 2007, Circle Pit is the seminal experimental glam/scum rock project of Angela Bermuda & Jack Mannix. Their latest tune, Neon Idol was recorded on tour in 2010 as part of a four song EP alongside Psychedelic Horseshit’s Matt Whitehurst in Ohio. Titled Wicked Wicked Time, the four tracks span elements of blues, hair metal, country and southern rock. The unpredictable Neon Idol is a perfect opener thanks to an overflow of crunchy, lo-fi riffs and vocals stacked with attitude. It may not be in the charts yet, but we’re looking forward to seeing the duo’s next move. Watch this space.
