We caught up with awesome Central Coast dudes, Little Earthquake a few weeks ago on their Planets tour, which wraps up in Sydney on May 4. The lads came in for a chat at BED REC STUDIO, which is the very FIRST video for the SemplesizeTV channel. Check the full interview and live performance below, and don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date with our weekly videos! We have heaps of cool partnerships and ventures planned, but we’ll tell you all about them soon.
It’s one of the best times of the year; Splendour In The Grass. The build up to the festival is nearly just as exciting as the event itself. Waking up early to turn on the radio and hear the lineup announcement, watching your Facebook news feed get filled with Splendour announcements, taking the day off work or getting to work super early if you have a computer there and sitting staring at the computer screen while you wait in the ‘green room’. Oh I can’t believe another year has gone by already. The Festives will fall 25th – 27th of July. So make sure you get work off!
Now to the exciting part THE SPLENDOUR LINEUP. This year is filled with great international and Aussie acts (as usual). We’ve added the Spotify playlist so you can get in the mood and get ready.

Fiorina, where do we start? Well, lets start by telling you that if you’re one of those girls who appreciate the smaller details in life, then you should probably start jewellery shopping at Fiorina. Having just celebrated their 20th anniversary, this iconic Melbourne jeweller has no sight of slowing down. Their collections are divine collaborations with local and international designers and they create some fairly killer statement pieces. Rings feature semi-precious stones cut into skulls, heavy metal and intricately detailed silver rings and other knock-out pieces make Fiorina’s collection one that we, at Semplesize, are all coveting.
Have a little look at the images from their anniversary celebration below, or head to their site to find your must-have for the season.
Earlier this month, we were invited along to the debut of new must-have streetwear label, Guerrilla Theatre Brand. With not much more than a video with a dude doing backflips in a monkey suit to go off, we weren’t 100% sure what we were getting ourselves into.
The launch was at SoHigh Gallery in Melbourne and oh, my. It was a pretty awesome night! The label also kicked off its first (of many) collaborations with legendary skater Renton Millar, and talented Melbourne-based fashion photographer, Peter Coulson. Guests were treated to an exclusive preview of the Guerrilla Theatre Brand range, delicious snacks that never ended, free-flowing beverages and Triple J regulars – Jackie Onassis – topped off a super sweet night. Oh, but what about the collection we hear you ask? The range featured everyday essentials such as original print tee’s, denim washes and unique dresses showing us that this brand is not for the faint hearted or the shy guy. Guerrilla Theatre Brand is a label with respect for originality and innovation and its passion for supporting and collaborating with various artists isn’t slowing.
Keep an eye on this one, folks, it’s gonna be a goodie. Have a peep at a couple of pics below, head here to shop it online or, for all of you in Melbourne, head down to SoHigh Gallery to see and shop it in real life.
