'I Know You Know' is an indie rock band based in Sydney, Australia. Formed in late 2017, the band consists of singer and songwriter Alex Toh, guitarist Sam Aylward, bassist Love Ernving and drummer Gerardo Torres.
Drawing from influences like Arctic Monkeys, Blur, The Cribs and other bands from the golden age of Britpop, punk and the garage-rock revival, 'I Know You Know' deliver a special blend of retro-inspired pop punk sounds with lyrics examining the millennial facade of the modern age.
'The Rules of Attraction' is the guitar-driven and melodically supercharged debut single from Sydney-based rock band 'I Know You Know'. The head bobbing rhythm combined with the instantly approachable melodies propels the song from start to finish like a roller coaster complete with just the right number of jolts and turns.
The lyrics capture the mundaneness of the modern age and yearning for a more extraordinary life. The wry lines are delivered with raw honesty, while the chorus provides the sense of hope in realizing our dreams, topped off with a cathartic outro.
"When I wrote 'The Rules of Attraction' I wanted to synthesize some of my strongest and most influential memories of the good times when I was a kid. I wanted to capture that feeling of playing an old video game or watching your favorite music video on a Saturday morning. Of meeting up with your friends in the late afternoon and driving around all night.
I wanted to channel the zeitgeist of possibility, imagination and of the carefree times of the youthful days. When something so simple as a game, or the opening bars of a song could immediately grab your attention and make you start imagining things. When your imagination could transport you to another world, or take you on a wild adventure, and then make your heart melt when you finished it, only to realize you were still sitting in the living room with your friends all along. I felt 'The Rules of Attraction' summed all of this up for me and I'm pleased to have it out as the band's debut single."
Inspired by the ever-fleeting recollection of memories, Distant Horizons, is a vista for times since passed, frozen moments we can always return to. Whereas the last album, Sunwarper, was a reflection on our chaotic times, Distant Horizons represents a momentary reprieve, looking out onto the horizons of our past.
Michael Jakucs has been creating warped, atmospheric electronic music under the moniker Selles since 2013. Field recordings and a keen attention to sonic detail create an audible palette which Jakucs uses to craft nostalgia dripped tunes. Memories play a key role in the inspiration of the melodies, as wistful synths give way to dusty beats while the songs drift into times since passed.
Dan Caine is ambient / post-rock musician from Merseyside, England. Caine uses powerful, layered guitar melodies to create an atmosphere of an intense range of thought and emotion as he explores the depths of the human psyche. His music is a free-flow of subconscious urge and instinct; a deep dive into the unhindered world of the Id. Much like a fine wine, these meditative works expose more and more of their depth with each listen, and like a mood ring, they morph and change to reflect the state of the listener perceiving them. Caine’s music is also richly melodic and is layered with vibrant textures, created primarily from his collection of guitars, producing brooding atmospheres and serene sonic landscapes.
The Jackson Pollock of ambient post-rock, Caine is a master of breaking music down to its most basic elements, and arranging them in a work of abstract purity. This enables the listener to explore their own connections to the sound and engage with the piece less as a listener, and more as an observer of aural art. His music is broad and guiding, yet flexible and undemanding, allowing the observer a space with which to process their own humanity within it.
Dan Caine, born in 1988 in Wirral, England, first picked up the guitar at age 15, inspired by a lot of alternative music, as well as his own father who played the classical guitar. He has had no formal musical training or tutoring, save for being taught a few basic chords from his father. He realised early on that making music was a great way of expressing himself and began recording his experimentations as a hobby. Eventually, in 2013, he published his first album, “Ephemeris”, which was a collection of some of his best ambient pieces that he had made of over the previous years. Since then, his music has evolved and has primarily drawn on influences from ambient, post-rock and new-age music.
"Captured Whispers" is a collection of ambient / post-rock songs recorded between 2012-2017, that have never officially been released until now.
The New album "beasts in binary city" by Mandala eyes is an all improvised electric guitar + looper, underlaid by also improvised electronic beats. The story is about wildness struggling to exist in a reductive environment, a reflection of his internally difficult time living in a city in middle America over the past year.

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
