5 Unearthed tracks we’re listening to this week

We’ve heard so many great recordings coming from local acts recently that we’ve decided to highlight the tracks we’ve been listening to in the office all week. This week features one of Newcastle’s youngest bands and a few tracks from local artists that you may have missed.

The Elliot Effect – Throw Me To The Wolves


Throw Me To The Wolves
We saw this young band of Novocastrians live last night at the Youth Rockin’ The Black Dog event at Lizottes in Lambton. With all the members of the band attending different high schools, it’s a wonder they get time to write and record at all. Their first single ‘In Wonderland’ is a real favoruite of ours, and was recently picked up by fashion label, Sportsgirl for a national campaign.

SOUNDS LIKE: Ball Park Music

Mr Cheetah – The Treehouse Children


Treehouse Children @ The Small Ballroom
The latest single from local indie band, The Treehouse Children. It’s no secret that we have an affection for the boys from The Treehouse Children. We love their songs and their live performances are fun and engaging.

SOUNDS LIIKE: Two Door Cinema Club

By A Thred – Dave


Noah Church, Gabe Argiris, Cal Schuck, Alex Rutherford, collectivly known as Dave have released a little rocker here with plently of pop sensibilities. It’s had more than a few toes tapping here in the office this week and is well worth a listen.


Glow – Josh Gaffney

There’s not a lot of information on Unearthed about Josh Gaffney except that he’s a local Novocastrian. We love the dynamic captured in this recording and are really keen to hear more for this local artist.

SOUNDS LIKE: City Calm Down

Good Grace – Like…Alaska


This is one you may have missed when it was released in 2010. The band is made up of 3 guys and 3 girls who all share the songwriting duties. Their Unearthed profile says that the band interchanges instruments and main vocal duties for a few songs, so it is fair to say there is no ‘lead singer’.
