June 28: Roku Music + Polyfox + Machines For Dreams @ Terrace Bar Newcastle

Roku Music are a shoegaze band from Brisbane. They probably draw on other influences, but that’s just a mistake, an accident on their behalf. The band is Donovan Miller (No Anchor), Innez Tulloch (Tiny Spiders, Feathers), Jody Gleeson (The Madisons) and Thomas Roche (The Rational Academy). Four Thousand called them “dark, but not in a cliche goth way,” and Sonic Masala said: “the dark throbbing tensions and feedback squalls that bleed through is a distant relative to Miller’s No Anchor affiliations, whilst the static pop aesthetics that ebb and flow like a reticent tide can be as lightweight as a Feather(s) or a hazy dream from a Tiny Spider(s).”

Supported by local stalwarts Polyfox and the Union of the Most Ghosts, along wth local upstarts Machines For Dreams.
