British India’s Matt O’Gorman lists five Aussie acts we should all be excited about

Following the release of their latest album Forgetting The Future, Melbourne rockers British India will be heading out on the road in May for a massive tour which will see them hitting up stages from Adelaide to the Gold Coast.

Amid a heavy schedule of rehearsals and promo, there isn’t much time for anything else – but according to drummer Matt O’Gorman, the guys still make time to check out other acts.

So what are they listening to at the moment?

We’ll let O’Gorman give you the lowdown, in his own words.


A really solid three piece out of Adelaide. They’re amazing live with two revolving vocalists who really throw it down. They remind me a little  of Gerling, who are one of my favourite Aussie bands.


A great Melbourne band who have been on the scene for a couple of years. They’re really starting to build a loyal following over the country and with Triple J giving them a few spins it won’t be long until they get some solid radio play.


A solo artist out of Sydney who’s recently relocated to Melbourne. I was first made aware of her when I gave her tracks a spin on my radio show. She’s got an amazing voice and she’s one of those acts who’s amazing to watch solo or full band.


We’ve been lucky enough to share the stage with these guys a few times. They’re a four piece from Sydney who are just slowly starting to take off now. They’re just about to tour extensively overseas too so they’re on the verge.


Loving these guys, they have a very Eddy Current Suppression Ring vibe about them. Like all of these bands,they’re amazing live too. They’re just starting to tour nationally, so keep an eye out for them.


You can catch British India on a stage near you this May and June.
