Hey Violet (Singer Rena Lovelis, her sister and drummer Nia Lovelis, Lead Guitarist Casey Moreta, and Bassist Iain Shipp), the four piece Alternative Pop band is back with a fun new single titled “Better By Myself”. It’s the first release from the band since their 2017 debut album “From The Outside”. The song is a catchy, and groovy pop rock number featuring a hooky sing along style chorus. The subject matter of relationships and freedom is albeit nothing new but very relatable, makes “Better By Myself” perfect for Pop radio.

Melbourne garage band and psych-rockers, Money For Rope have released an artsy video for their new single ‘Actually’. The track is lifted from their upcoming album ‘Picture Us’ which is due out on March 8th, is in full black and white, fast paced and created in one night by one of the the bands two drummers (yes, I said the band has two drummers), Eric Serba. It features a series of sequential photos taken at the bands rehearsal space.
Speaking about the process, Scerba says; “The photos were very much on the fly although I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like. It was pretty much impossible to know the timing of everything, but there’s a part in the song where the crash hits with a shot of me hitting the crash and it just worked.Sometimes that shit happens. There’s a kinda psychedelic aspect to it all which I liked –using the images to do different things like capture some of us in two places at once. The black and white makes it more nightmarish. We wanted to have all the shots happen at once so it had a constant flow of momentum.The hardest part was editing,as 25 frames a second doesn’t match the song’s bpm.”
