GIG OF THE WEEK: High-Tails / NTL Landmarks / Yev @ Hamilton Station / by Kian West

Easter Sunday also happens to be April Fools Day this year but we aren't fooling you with this gig.

Catch local heroes NTL Landmarks (Ryan Williams/Creative Director here at Mirage is in the band so we probably have to say that) are playing what is rumoured to be their last show for a while so they can record, or it could just be that they haven't been able to organise anything. Either way, they are playing with the always amazing Yev Kassem and some other band from Sydney that are apparently good.

“their enthusiasm and energy [is] intoxicating” - The AU Review

High-tails first hit music fans’ radars with their 2014 single “Bending Over Backwards”. A bona fide triple j smash, Aussie Playlist frothed it “gets stuck in your head (and doesn’t get out quickly)”. It’s gone on to clock up nearly 300,000 plays on Spotify, and landed the band as the 9th most-played artist on triple j Unearthed in 2014. 

In its wake the foursome signed to Stop Start (Ball ParkMusic, Northeast Party House) and released their debut EP “Sipping Tea To Make Music To Sip Tea To”. Follow-up 2015 single “Information” was another staple on triple j and publicradio alike. The song premiered on Gold Flake Paint [UK] who hailed it asa “loose-limbed guitar strut”, while triple j’s Zan Rowe raved “such a great song …it builds and builds and builds!”. 

Its film clip was a Rage Wild One Of The Week as well as a Channel [V] DISCO[V]ER video and J Play Clip Of The Week,and the cut even ended up being remixed into a loping Manchester anthem by local lord Spod. 

On the live front, High-tails have notched up an enviable list of supports for Jamie T (UK), Oh Mercy, Northeast Party House, The Holidays, Flyying Colours and more. They’ve also rocked an array of festivals including The Blurst Of Times(Brisbane and Sydney), Lost Paradise (Glenworth Valley), Yours & Owls’ 4th Birthday (Wollongong), King Street Crawl (Newtown), Rolling Stone Live Lodge(Newtown), Sounds Of The Suburbs (Cronulla), Junkyard Festival (Enmore) and Sydney Fringe (Marrickville).
