If you're nostalgic for a time when artists like Nirvana and Foo Fighters dominated the radio, then we have just the group for you - LOSER. Born from the fertile mind of frontman Tim Maxwell (Apart From This/Grim Rhythm), he quickly brought in good mates Chris Cowburn (The Smith Street Band) and Craig Selak (The Bennies) and bob's your dad's brother - LOSER was alive.

Of course name-dropping those much-adored 90s outfits is only half the equation, their debut single Loser still manages to feel very "now", with a raw energy and songsmanship that could only from a talented bunch of roosters, which this trio seem very much to be. James Tidswell (Violent Soho) unsurprisingly dug 'em straight away, including Loser in one of his Domestic La La record label 7-inch club releases.

Tell us about yourselves?

We are a three piece alt-rock band from Melbourne. We've all been friends for a long time, but this is our first time making noise together.

What kinda tunes we talkin’?

Fuzzed out alt-rock in the vein of Weezer, Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana.

Production/writing process:

Tunes first, lyrics second.

Can you tell us about your new single, Loser?

The song is about trying to navigate the current social climate, feeling isolated, overwhelmed and conflicted between what you feel is right within yourself, and what everyone else is constantly telling you

Any shows coming up?

We will be playing in Launceston with good mates Luca Brasi for their album launch.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

Plans to release more music and hit the road. Can’t wait to show people what we have been cooking up!

Where can we hear more of your music?

Our song can be found on Unearthed and all the good streaming services.
