Wireheads are an interesting band to try describe.

kylie brice

We were first wowed by Kylie Brice while Music SA was judging a local songwriting competition. She won the title – and some recording time – and our instincts have proven correct.

This local Singer/Songwriter sounds like Missy Higgins meets Clare Bowditch, and she wisely used her prize to record her debut single “Journey to Myself”, […]

To say we were waiting for Koral Chandler’s debut LP with great anticipation would be an understatement… Having recorded at top SA studio Mixmasters, with many a new band member in tow, the result is “Nocturnes”, a “grown up rock (release) that’s raw, honest and a little screwed up.” Amen to that.

Finally out […]
