Sydney’s Upskirts have been on our radar for some time now, and they’ve really started making headway of late. Their latest EP, Barely Moving, just came out through Inertia, and trust us when we say it’s one fine musical offering. Don’t believe me? Check out the washed-out, psych-grunge single that is (the hilariously titled) Nothing Happens In Roseville.
It’s refreshing to hear lo-fi grungy music like this coming out today – and with such an original, fresh tweak to it too. Managing to steer clear of that plain old nostalgia territory, Upskirts are doing their own thang, and they’re doing it so damn well.
We wanted to get to know them a little bit better, so we asked them to share some of their favourite tunes with us. Enjoy!
