We're getting a bit darker now, this is from a few years ago but it's still a classic. [Cong Josie} is a fantastic live act happening around Melbourne and through Australia at the moment. He's at the height of his powers in Cong so enjoy this song!

A classic pop hit from last year from the Frankston band The Belair Lip Bombs. I just love this song, its just so cool. Ít's got a great film clip and this band, well, they're all over the place at the moment in the literal good way, they're traveling and being really on top of their game.
