Proud of your hometown and the kick-ass music coming out of it? Wanna hear the best, and newest, stuff from your city it all in one place? Froth Aussie music? If you answered ‘hell yes’ to any of the above, then Pilerats “Sounds From…” playlists are about to change your life.

We can all agree that Australia has one of the most exciting and globally-recognised music scenes in the world, and each Aussie State has always had its own microcosm of diverse, exciting musical happenings.

As music-lovers, music-writers, DJs and venue-owners, our Pilerats crew are always keen to find out what’s the haps music-wise in every last studio, garage, rehearsal room, bar and club in Australia, but found it hell weird that you couldn't search for music by where it's coming from… anywhere? 

We decided that just wasn’t good enough! So we got to work on a creative solution, and today we’re stoked to introduce you to this brand new cool thing we made that we can all hopefully benefit from… 



A playlist for each State, featuring top-notch, up-to-the-minute sounds from artists smashing it in that State, across ALL genres. New tracks added weekly.

Get stuck into the Sounds From playlists if… 

- You’re a proud local that wants to keep on the pulse of the rad music coming out of your city

- You froth Aussie music in general and want to discover the newest and best bands/artists coming out of garages and studios outside your hometown

- You’re a muso about to hit a national tour and keen to suss the best supports in the places you’re headed
