Guards of May, one of Brisbane’s very own and very talented bands, has just announced their newest single release, “Numbers”. The single, which was released to fans online on 4 October, will be followed by a tour across Australia’s East Coast within the coming weeks.

If you missed out on their debut show last week, make sure you grab tickets to the one this weekend (12 October) at the Tempo Hotel. Tickets are $10 online (http://tickets.oztix.com.au/?Event=37783) or $15 at the door.

Guards of May are an increasingly successful Brisbane alternative rock band who, after releasing their debut EP “Control” in 2012, have shared the stage with talents such as Grinspoon, Spiderbait, and recently, Dead Letter Circus. Their film clip for “Control” went on to be nominated for the 2012 Australian Film Editor’s Guild Autodesk Award, along with the likes of Angus and Julia Stone, Guy Sebastian and Ball Park Music. Now they’re excited to share with you the newest music video (below) for the single, “Numbers”.

You can also check out their YouTube channel for some great alternative rock beats, and if you like what you hear then show them your appreciation by liking the Guards of May Facebook page!

Hi again,

I thought I would contribute on the latest indulgence of the music that is on its way to taking-over in the synth/dance arena.

In today’s world, we are running-out of ideas on how we should progress as a culture, a society and a lot of this comes from our love and wisdom of/from music.

We constantly build and build from previous ideas, and this is our state of progression. The profession in which this is done could be argued that we are always the same, stagnant if you will. It is the simulation of continuing growth, but perhaps, we should find a more radical balance to set ourselves apart to create a greater future. We need to produce individual styles of our own nature that collaborate with others to enhance a richer prospect of where we want the globe to lean forward and towards.

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams

We are the music makers,
We are the dreamers of dreams

The music is called Dream-wave or Retro-wave. It is derived from a similar genre called Nu-disco or Italo Disco.

We have come once again, at a crossroads in which we start to shift into New World Order, and we begin to dream of the future again. The era, in which is very much alike to what is today’s influence is from the mid 1980s.

The underground music scene in the electronic department, finally coming to agreement of Deep-house as its predominant sound at the moment. What is next? What is the under-ground that will soon be mainstream again? It is this alternative sound of 80s music, and is developing as we speak. It has been done before, though like a lot of aspects, it will won’t be appreciated for a long time. The sounds from the 2000’s that I personally am feeling quite pleased with and being re-invented is another thing, however that for now is too early for its time.

Therefore, you can see the pattern of originality and modernisation coming forth. I could tell you what’s after that.. But that would be telling.

So enjoy one of the pioneers of the upcoming scene.

LazerHawk! Give him your recognition!

Press play!

Hey guys,

We’ve been trying to discover who is really interested in our mission of bringing Brisbane’s underground music talent to the surface. One of the tests we’ve done to find out our viewer demographic is look at our Facebook data. By doing this, we’ve discovered that our fans are predominantly within the 19 – 24 age bracket and that there is a slightly higher male fan base than female. Our fans, as we expected, are from the Brisbane areas, however we have received interest from a number of fans living in the Gold Coast. Interestingly, we even received a couple of likes internationally, with two of our fans living in Pakistan! We found that pretty cool!

Demographic

We’re also stocked to realise that our fan base is steadily rising, and with 23 likes last week, we’re not up to 107! Thanks for all your support guys. Please spread the word about our page so we can help get everyone interested in the awesome talent that Brisbane has to offer.

Facebook data

We’d love to get feedback from you too! So, if you have something to share, please drop a few lines in the box below.
