Perth duo Mosquito Coast have announced their first national headline tour to promote their new single “Let’s Be Friends”, our first taste of their as of yet unannounced debut EP expected to drop later this year. The Triple J Unearthed High winners of 2015 will be playing a string of dates across the country in August and September. Joining them on stage for their Perth show will be Stonefox, Dream Rimmy and Human Buoy.
Naomi Robinson and Conor Barton of Mosquito Coast caught the attention of the nation with their earworm of a song “Call My Name”, which landed them at spot #101 in the Hottest 100 of 2015 and earned them the Unearthed High crown. They soon followed it up with the equally catchy “Commotion”. Since, they’ve been recording their debut EP in Sydney and have honed their live show by supporting the likes of Abbe May, San Cisco and Gang of Youths, not to mention festival dates at Groovin the Moo and State of the Art. Their latest single, “Let’s Be Friends”, perfectly demonstrates their appeal; a gorgeous dream pop soundscape delivered with killer hooks, not unlike Beach House or Methyl Ethel.
They sound great on record, but their sound really comes to life in a live setting. Bolstered by an expanded touring band, their show is sure to captivate audiences and get you singing and dancing. Having seen them live three times already, I can attest to this. Starting their tour in front of a home crowd at Mojo’s Bar on Friday 26 August, the band will then play dates in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney and will deliver a set at BIGSOUND in Brisbane. Tickets to the Fremantle show are on sale now, don’t miss out!
The Defenders will see three widely beloved street-level heroes - Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones - and Iron Fist teaming up to, presumably, defend. This is as good a time as any to rank each and every one of the Marvel Netflix shows.
Stakes. Character. Exciting action. Boom. For a few minutes, one of the guys who directed John Wick, David Leitch, took full command of his movie. It was beautiful if brief, and the only thing about Atomic Blonde worth remembering.
The Blue Room Theatre's An Almost Perfect Thing is an almost perfect combination of plot driven mind folly and uncannily human characterisation. If you’re ready to teeter on the edge of your seat with the insatiable hunger of suspense, now is your time.
Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets (hereafter Valerian) is a technically proficient movie with a plot you can't care much about.
Hot damn. The shortest episode in GoT history is also easily one of the most epic, rivalling Hardhome and the Battle of the Bastards in terms of pure fantasy spectacle. Howie and Rhys break down the latest Game of Thrones episode, “The Spoils of War”.
Bell Shakespeare have managed to deliver a sensitive, engrossing and downright funny adaptation of this oft-controversial play.
There was many a time that I literally jumped in my seat, gripping the arm rests – yes, it was that good. Be prepared to see a play of harsh, confronting truth; one that may leave you shaken and emotionally drained.
On the latest Spoiler Nation podcast, we had a lot of fun sinking our teeth into the subtle and big moments of this week's Game of Thrones episode, The Queen's Justice: Ice and Fire are brought together for the first time, revenge is a dish most poetically served with drops of poison, and Bran acts like a damn creepy weirdo.
