As the sun rose on what would be the last day of the 2015 instalment of Splendour In The Grass. Weary eyes and heavy limbs were symptoms many punters would feel as they arose from their tents praying for the strength to make it through this last day. Mud still staining our limbs and bruises appearing on out bodies though were not sure from where we were prepared to make every last second of this day count… But first we needed coffee.
I woke up this morning for the final day of Splendour and my head was spinning. Or maybe it was just the world around me. To say I feel a little rough from yesterday could be a slight understatement. Everything from the previous 24hours was slowly flashing in my mind (oh gosh did I really do that?). I’m going to try recap everything with you. Continue reading “SITG SATURDAY 25/7/15” »
Mud, as far as the eye could see there was just mud. Gooey, squelchy, at least four inches thick in places mud. How it was only the first proper day of the festival and the grounds looked like the scene of a post apocalyptic horror film I will never know, but still we ventured onwards.
After waking up at 4.30am and flying from Melbourne to Brisbane and Newcastle to Brisbane Alex and I met for the first time. Stalking each other on Facebook to ensure we wouldn’t presume some random was the other we managed to track each other down to start our journey to Splendour In The Grass.

Pop act Nussy has just released her new single My Heroin. A powerful track about being in a toxic relationship! Last weekend she debuted the single at Melbourne’s Shadow Electric and what a performance it was! This is no rookie! Nussy knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s no cookie cutter pop act, she’s one that has a bit of swagger and stands out for the rest!!! We were lucky enough to catch up with her and ask her a few questions about her song and what she’s been up to. Continue reading “WHAT’S UP | NUSSY” »
My favourite Scottish trio in the history of the planet CHVRCHES are backkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!! Hold me whilst I convulse violently at the prospect of new synthy goodness from the group. It feels like it’s been years since the last taste of new music which came in the form of Get Away” and Dead Air despite it only really being seven months. So now with the cat out of the bag and a set date for the album (titled Every Open Eye out Sept 26) I can turn for full attention to the brand spanking shiny new single Leave A Trace.
We’re counting down the days until Splendour. There’s not many now. It’ll also actually be the first time Alex (SEMPLESIZE Music Editor Assistant) and I meet!!! The poor guy doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into camping with me for 4nights!!! To help us (and you) prepare we thought we’d do the ABCs of Splendour!

A call to arms for the new generation with a detached view on society this track is exactly what I’ve been waiting for from US alt-pop singer Halsey. She’s never been afraid to make a statement and it seems that with this new track New Americana she’s talking right to her generation in what could go down as one of the best anthems of our generation.
