About the Line Up


While you’re sleeping this thematic alt-rock/punk act out of Adelaide are wide awake blasting out tunes.

Formed in 2019, Nocturnal Animals came about from the ashes of two previous bands (Chasing Claire & Baja Bleeders). The three skeleton boys came together to form a new band, new music and have a new start.

2020 saw the band kick into gear, releasing four singles and closing the year out in the anthemic single ‘SFOS’.

2021 shows no signs of slowing down as the skeleton boys kick the year off with the release of ‘Articuno Makes Waves’. The skeleton boys dedicate themselves day and night to their love of music and creating. Come on the journey with them.


DRAINING are an alternative band from Adelaide, Australia. Drawing influences from genres such as shoegaze, dream pop & post-punk, the band has been refining and experimenting with their sound. Their debut album ‘don’t you want to feel something different?’ reflects their 3 year-long progression. By mixing in dreamy, and dark elements they have created a brooding sound of their own, with a hint of punk aggression and wall of fuzz to create an album full of angst, anger, loss, anxiety & sorrow.

Thanks to inspiration from Death Bells, Nothing, Whirr, and Turnover, the band formed in 2017 and have released one self titled EP, two singles, and now their debut album. DRAINING have already toured through Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and wish to push further, achieve more and reach new audiences.

With a hefty amount of shows under their belt, they have played alongside bands such as Death Bells (US), Blush Response, Lowtide (Melb), Half/Cut (Melb), Shady Nasty (Syd), Ultra Material (Bris), Paradise Club, Terra Pines (Bris), Towns, and Colourblind.

why wouldn’t you want to feel something different, when it’s all you’ve been feeling?


Nuclear Family is a four-piece indie emo rock band that performs introspective songs about identity and personal growth. With a focus on clean, texture-driven songwriting, their live shows aim to honour the spirit of their songs about feeling. Their debut double single will be released this July, with an LP coming later this year.


Urban Youth are a three piece indie-rock/shoegazing band from Adelaide, South Australia.

Infused with dreamy melodies and sharp edged guitars – underpinned by a subtle atmospheric haze, Urban Youth have developed their own distinctive co-lead vocal dynamic that blends in seamlessly amongst layers of thick fuzz and reverb. Harkening back to the sound of 90’s shoegaze and 80’s post-punk, the trio have been able to craft a live sound that evokes fragility, power and sincerity – all in equal measure.


True to Adelaide’s genre blending tradition, Dilettantes are loud, and they’re upset. Want Layers of shimmering noise, fuzzed out sludge and ear splitting drums? They’ve got what you need.
