NEWGATE CROWD 'SCISSORS' Single Launch

7:30pm, Fri 8 July, 2022

Event Details

Bursting out of the Barossa, Kai (drums), Joey (bass) and VIDDY (vocals & lead guitar) are Newgate Crowd, a diverse alternative rock sound exploding with raw energy. Pumped to be at the Uni Bar Adelaide with some season campaigners in Sunsick Daisy and The Birds are Spies.

Since forming in early 2021, they have enjoyed performances and awards with ‘Busk to Dusk’, Barossa Arts Festival’s ‘Battle of the Bands’ and recently the ‘No Quiet’ punk rock festival performing alongside headliners ‘Young Offenders’ and ‘Chelsea Manor’.

Following their first release single, ‘Unconvinced’, Newgate Crowd are launching their second original single, ‘Scissors’, bringing another layer to their sound. And this is just the beginning…

The Birds are Spies

Formed in 2019, The Birds are Spies are an alternative rock trio from Adelaide, Australia. Comprising of Gracie Northam on vocals, Jack Larkin playing strings and Lachie Durrans on drums. Their 2021 debut EP entitled ‘Big Nothing’, followed by their 2022 single ‘Loose Change’ and other awesome tracks like ‘Flavour’ and ‘Butterfish’ - they are hot on the local live music scene and a must see band!

Sunsick Daisy

Sunsick Daisy is a four-piece shoegaze/dream pop band from Kaurna Land, Adelaide, SA. Labelling themselves as a “sour-candy pop-rock” group, the band delves into the ‘bittersweetness’ of life – particularly aspects such as mental health – through melancholic yet upbeat instrumental and hard-hitting lyricism. While the instrumental draws influences from the noise rock and shoegaze themes of My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive, as well as the alt-rock sounds of Madura Green and Sweater Curse, the lyricism tell tales of lived experiences; how, despite the bad things that may happen, it is important to hold onto the best moments and people – that ‘if the sun can rise tomorrow, so can you.’ Though being a relatively young band with young members, initially forming from a song-writing event held by MusicSA, the band has gone forward and shared the stage with the likes of Teenage Joans, Towns and Tiles.
