While Streamhear has been working on developing the Gig Finder function of the App, a couple of our uploaded artists have been surprised with great news. Every year, West Australian Music (WAM) seeks to find and celebrate the best contemporary music arising from within West Australia, and this year’s finalists for the WAM Awards is a very impressive glimpse of what the state has to offer. We are stoked – blown away, in fact – that two of our West Australian artists have been shortlisted in their respective categories. Let’s take a quick look at who they are.
Hailing from Perth itself,
prog metal band Nucleust have gone to establish themselves on the Oz metal scene. They have supported the likes of Twelve Foot Ninja, Lacuna Coil and Soilwork, and have gained an enthusiastic recognition in the US. They have just returned from the Alice where they performed alongside some of Australia’s best metal bands at the Blacken Festival, and we may just see these guys on national tour later this year. They have a very informative and up to date website. Have a squiz. http://nucleust.com/
From the very south of the state, serenading the region with their electronic grooves, Like A Thief have had their song Take Me Back hit the Outstanding Regional finalist list. Those who have followed Streamhear for a while may remember my article on these guys I wrote last year: Approaching Distance Like A Thief. These guys continue to kick goals and aren’t shy to travel to gigs. Keep your eyes peeled for them if you’re in the south west region. These guys are keeping their follower’s up to date via their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/likeathief/
From Streamhear, we wish our two WAM finalist artists all the best in their nominated categories.
