The Swiss are a band from Adelaide that have been going great guns in the last year. They just finished a whirlwind tour of Europe and the USA and are back home in Adelaide after playing a dj set at Splendour. If you're heading to any of the Parklife festivals definitely make an effort to catch their set. I've posted a dj set here and one of their EPs from SoundCloud.
Also, despite the sad news about Ou Est Le Swimming Pool's frontman, Charlie Haddon, passing away a couple of weeks ago, the band has decided to go ahead with the album release in late September (I think). I was really looking forward to catching these guys at Parklife but it was obviously not meant to be. I definitely think that these guys had a huge amount of potential and the album was going to be huge regardless, but given the circumstances I think it will get a lot more exposure. Some bittersweet success for the remaining members.
One more band plug - The Holidays. These guys are from Sydney and have been getting some exposure on Triple J and Nova apparently too. Head to their MySpace to check out some of their tracks.
Another rainy day in Adelaide - I'm actively avoiding heading back outside but am about to meet Bre to obtain some margarita mix and sombreros for our impending mexican festivities tonight - nothing like a bit of tequila to warm you up!
