HEADLINER: Fripps & Fripps
Living off Guzman burritos and an affinity for indie pop, Fripps & Fripps crawled out of a local garage and onto Cronulla’s live music scene in early 2015.
Sending local listeners into a trance to the likes to the Kooks, the boys will have you fucked up and rowdy faster than Bailey Stevenson rapping the end section of ‘Freel’. With
a full course of bangers the lads have delivered sold out appearances on Sydneys southern fringe and gigged alongside UB40, The Bamboos and Caravana Sun during the Inaugural ‘Australian Music Week’ conference and ‘Hifi Days Festival’ in late 2015.
With detailed feedback and some desert magic from local guru Ant Beard, the boys decided it was time to re-enter the Fripp Cave and start cooking up some seriously tasty
shit for release in 2016.
With hard-earned gig coin and making the switch to four x summer, the boys shut themselves off from civilisation in a down town garage and began recording the songs that would be their debut EP, a sun drenched array of backyard spliff and effortless
summer fun.
SUPPORT: Sputnik Sweetheart
Energetic, emotive, and passionate, Sputnik Sweetheart arebringing their own blend of Alternative-Rock to the Australian music scene. The band has built a reputation for delivering hard hitting performances to sold out rooms across the country.
Last year saw the release of their debut EP ‘Growing Pains’ headlined by the anthemic breakout single ‘Us Girls’, a song that throws gender inequality into the spotlight in a passionate and frustrated voice. Since the release of their debut EP, Sputnik Sweetheart have nabbed slots at nationally acclaimed music festivals; Spilt Milk and Stonefest, and supported the likes of Ball Park Music, Joyce Manor, British India, Kingswood, Hands Like Houses and Spacey Jane.
After spending time at the highly esteemed Grove Studios, Sputnik Sweetheart are back to present their latest release, ‘Rolling’, a surf rock tune with a gritty twist. Inspired by Tim Winton’s iconic coming of age novel, Breath, ‘Rolling’ is a song about formative relationships; the way they start, end, and influence us well into our adulthood.
