Yes UNFD… you doing good.
The truth is we know (much like everyone else) we often get caught up listening to the same bands endlessly (and not letting any new ones creep in) – It’s something we always seem to mention, but we’re trying harder this year to actually do what we say we want to do. This, naturally led us down a UNFD path. Having already been familiar with the majority of their roster, here’s just a quick 5 that caught our eye…
Question: How many of these are you already familiar with?
Hailing from Shellharbour in NSW, Australia, if you like bands that move along the lines of Citizen, Title Fight and Basement, then Easy Life will fit right in to your playlist rotation. Self-proclaimed as “SHELLHARBOUR SWEETHEARTS. AUSTRALIAN ANGST” … if you liked the above song then listen to the THERE CAN’T BE THIS MUCH WATER IN THE SKY EP.
Void of Vision
Well Void of Vision you’ve got our full attention. Having recently finished a UK tour with Miss May I & Fit For A King, there’s absolutely no way you can’t get hyped up whilst listening to this band. Hearing the obvious influences, we absolutely adore the way the clean vocals just seem to elevate the above song for us.
Signing to UNFD in 2016, the three-piece that is Columbus have been on tour with bands like YMA6 to Real Friends. We’re always going to have a weakness for pop punk, so naturally we took to Columbus very quickly. You know you’re in for a treat when the band cite some of their influences as The Wonder Years, Turnover to Gnarwolves.
Having previously called it a day back in early 2014, frontman Bryant Best kept on with his music. With some line-up changes along the way, Saviour thankfully returned and released their latest EP LET ME LEAVE in January of 2017, with more new music expected in the coming months.
The moment you hear that founding members Ethan McCann (guitar) and Jacob Charlton (vocals) met and bonded over their mutual love of Architects & Northlane, Thornhill’s sound all makes so much sense. Having formed just under two years ago, the band have already shared the stage with fellow Aussie’s Hellions, Northlane and much to their excitement Architects too. BUTTERFLY will be their first EP since joining the UNFD family and is out Friday 16th Feb.
