Syd-based alt-rockers Sevsons have just stepped off a whirlwind east coast tour, throwing their weight behind Brissy rockers Dead Letter Circus. The four-piece have been on the up and up in local alt-rock circles over the past coupla’ years, and have already supported Aussie prog rock and metal vets Closure in Moscow, Caligula’s Horse and Circles.
If you’re a fan of Karnivool or Gyroscope you’re going to absolutely soak up these guys’ latest single, ‘Evolution’. Be prepared for the catchy riff to prick your ears from the get go, eventually intertwining with an emotive melody and uplifting chorus. For this clam, ‘Evolution’ awoke a welcome nostalgia; slinging me back into the murky waters of my teenage alt-rock/ post-hardcore phase.
As is commonplace with many tracks within the genre, ‘Evolution’ touches on mental health and personal hardship.
Evolution is an emotionally immersive and uplifting song for us. It’s a lifeline to everyone out there dealing with their own struggles; a reminder that you’re capable of overcoming those struggles and contributing positively to the world around you.
Ahead of their highly anticipated gig at local haunt Rad Bar on July 15th, Sevsons have given Pearler an exclusive peak at a playlist curated especially for those of us craving a healthy dollop of heavy rock, metalcore and hardcore punk. Cop a blast from the likes of Cancer Bats, Parkway Drive, Underoath and even a freshy from Brit post-HC band DON BROCO.
Tix are still available for Sevsons upcoming gig at Rad through good ol’ Moshtix. The lads will be playing alongside My Kind of Memory, ok hotel and Dribs – so what are you waiting for? Get clicky with it, son.

Canberran indie-pop outfit Slow Turismo have embarked on a gran turismo of Aus, and will be steering into the Gong later this eve for a dreamy show at Rad Bar.
The guys, self-described as the ‘new Hanson, but older, one less relative, darker hair and different taste in music’, are kicking it around the traps promoting their latest single ‘Adult Baby’. It’s the band’s biggest tour to date, having veered into Melbourne, Newtown, and then back to the crispy capital after tonight’s affair.
Slow Turismo will be supported by India Sweeney and Spit Chewy, doors open @ 8. Tickets are still up for grabs via Moshtix.
Crank their latest ‘Adult Baby’ below, and get psyched for a night of uniquely crafted dream-pop.
Melbourne lads, City Calm Down have unveiled a fresh track ahead of stepping out on the road for their Echoes in Blue tour. ‘Pride’ was released into the wild earlier this week, hand in hand with an enigmatic video clip.
Lead singer Jack Bourke describes the track as a lyrical exploration of,
‘the feelings of lashing out at loved ones due to personal insecurities, pushing them away without explaining why.’
Which, I think, is a feeling that the vast majority of us can level with. The track itself sees Bourke’s deep crooning laid over an ambient beat and some seriously eighties-sounding synth – which could very well be why my ears are finding ‘Pride’ super reminiscent of The Smithereens ‘Blood & Roses’. If you haven’t wrapped your ears around their latest record Echoes in Blue in its entirety, then I’d highly recommend pressing play on that cherry ripe asap.
Catch the vid for ‘Pride’ below. Would love to know what you think, so drop us a line below.
And get on down to the UOW UniBar on June 23rd for the End of Exams party, tickets available through Moshtix. Supported by Woodes + IV League!
