Facades are an independent band from the Mornington Peninsula Australia. Fronted by songwriter Matt Harrison, they started making alt rock music in high school. These days their sound has mellowed out into a blend of folk, rock, pop and alternative genres. Their current lineup is a 5 piece band, playing songs off their latest record ‘Catalogue Ambitions,’ created from their home studio in seaside Mount Eliza.
Prickle are a 5 piece Jazzy Psychedelic group that feature long guitar solos, flowy melodies and dance. Prickle, is a word used to describe the sharp, punchy musical ideas or a metaphor for feeling something extraordinary. Their EP, ‘The Creature You Are’ released in Nov last year is a concept album about Water which also tackles the beauty of the imperfection of the individual.
