The Rocketsmiths

09:50 PM The Press Club - Empire Hotel, 339 Brunswick St Fortitude Valley

Playing a style of music that has been dubbed everything from “Carnie Rock” to “Vaudevillian Indie Rock Popabilly”, Rocketsmiths sound (and play) like no other band in the Australian music scene and their latest EP, which is due to be released nationally on October 11th through MGM, has the sound of a band realising their full potential musically and creatively. Produced and recorded by ARIA award-winning producer Magoo (Regurgitator, Operator Please, End Of Fashion) over a month at his Applewood Lane property in regional Queensland, this EP (named “Parts, Pieces.”) has music industry tongues wagging and the band’s fanbase unable to contain their excitement. “Parts, Pieces.” will be showcasing the band’s new sound, a unique mash up of indie rock, rockabilly and carnivalesque pop, with an obvious departure from the style that characterised their last release. This energetic, exciting and extremely unique band are certainly ones to watch over the next 12 months with their style of music that is energetic yet restrained, quirky yet mature and hip yet totally uncool.
