Byron Bay dream-pop quartet Seaside explain the significance of overcoming social anxiety on new single, ‘Sycamore’.

Lead vocalist Darcy Dexter’s experiences with self-doubt were used as inspiration for the track. Darcy explains: 

“Life can put you in positions that make us uncomfortable,

“The line “Ghosts in my house” is a metaphor for allowing something/some situation to weave itself into the wires of your mind, leaving them tangled, making us feel like we’re being forced to explain ourselves”.

The track produced by Dylan Nash features an upbeat melody paired with undeniably charismatic energy.

Formed in 2016, Seaside are touring through Australia with Good Doogs at the moment, so make sure you don’t miss them.

Seaside have completely smashed it with their catchy new piece of indie-pop. Listen to ‘Sycamore’ below.

Tour Dates:

JUNE 6 | Lion Arts Factory | Adelaide

A.D.K.O.B. Have Resurfaced And They’ve Brought A Serious Vibe With Them


Three years after the release of their highly-frothed underground debut EP, Sydney’s other-worldly indie rock minstrels A.D.K.O.B. have re-emerged from their tune cave with a brand new toe-tapper dubbed ‘Chalkline’.

Mixed by Luke Million (I Know Leopard, Carmouflage Rose, Luke Million) & produced by A.D.K.O.B. themselves, the gently lapping bop conceals an aching sadness beneath its sunny grooves and lush wash of male and female vocal harmonies, with multi-instrumentalist band leader Mark Piccles explaining that the song speaks to the kind of confusion and desperation that humans feel when faced with an impossible situation, but still wanting to see the best in it.

In his own words:

“It’s a song about what it means to learn from mistakes, or perhaps that some times you don’t learn at all.

‘Chalkline’ has been lifted from A.D.K.O.B.’s forthcoming second EP NOTHING IS A WASTE OF TIME, which is set for release later this year.
