Wellington, NZ band The Golden Awesome are heading to Melbourne for a handful of shows in October after they support Beach Fossils in their hometown later this month. If you’re a fan of dense, layered hypnotic rock music then you’ll want to get along and check them out. They continue the same psych lineage of bands like MBV, Lush, Ride and JAMC while also tipping their stylistic hat to New Zealand acts like Snapper (who they supported earlier in 2013) and Bailter Space. With a 2011 album Autumn under their belt the quartet have just released a video clip for the excellent title track.
23 September – Bodega, Wellington (w/ Beach Fossils)
10 October – Public Bar, Melbourne (w/ Encounter Group)
11 October – Gasometer, Melbourne (w/ Contrast, the Glaciers)
