Sunset Sounds ‘Foster Band Initiative’

, , Leave a comment

Sunset Sounds, the Brisbane spinoff of Falls festiva, is entering its third year and they’ve just announced their new fostering initiative. Basically, they team up a local media publication with a local band, with that publication giving their band editorial love during the month of November. But it’s not all lovely. These bands are actually involved in deadly competition Battle Royal style – or, rather, a spot on the Sunset Sounds line-up. Two spots, in fact. And you get to decide who gets it.

You can cast your vote via the Sunset Sounds website, with voting open between November 1st and Devember 1st. The winning artists will be announced on December 6th. You have the power to make/crush dreams right here. Make sure you check out the bands below and get voting. Why? Because there are some that definitely deserve the spot and others that definitely do not. I won’t say which as I’m not here to bias the competition like some pre-historic bird of prey or anything.

Anyway, meet the bands and their partnered media outlets:

Rave Magazine fostering Inland Sea

Courier Mail fostering My Fiction

Scene Magazine fostering Velociraptor

Sunday Mail fostering Blame Ringo

Four Thousand fostering Slug Guts

Groove Magazine fostering The Liars Chair

Bats Magazine fostering Ball Park Music

Biscuit Magazine fostering Lion Island

Brisbane Times fostering The Belligerents

Life Music Media fostering Charlie Mayfair
