Boorloo/Perth-based indie-rock band Sophian have dropped their new single, Georgia. To celebrate the release, the band have shared with MILKY five up and coming artists they think everyone should be listening to.

"We are going behind a very beachy vibe. We want to inspire and spread happiness with this song. The song itself is about a sailor falling in love with a mermaid but finding it difficult to maintain the relationship given their differences. It's also a metaphor for what relationships in real life sometimes can be like. Things can be tough, but you can always work on turning them into something positive. We love the ocean and the beach. So, it was only natural for us to explore a song which would incorporate the ocean and also campfire vibes of bringing people together." the band share of the track.

Sophian will take to the stage at The Bird in Boorloo/Perth The Bird in Boorloo/Perth on Friday, May 5.

These guys keep putting out banger after banger! We can’t stop listening to them and their music. They are new to the music scene as well but have already been making some big noise. The best thing about these guys is not only do their songs sound good when you listen to them at home, their live performances are next level. Ella’s voice along with her guitar playing skills will melt your heart warm. Their stage presence is fire, and we can't wait to see the heights these guys will hit!

If you love bands like Middle kids, and Ballpark Music, you need to add Little Guilt to your playlists. As they like to say, A Little Guilt goes a long way!

This young group of lads are also pretty new to the scene, but we can guarantee you, you would have heard their name if you live in WA. They are absolutely killing it around the coast. Adam, their front man, is not only an excellent singer but also shreds on the guitar. He will have you glued to them if you are watching them live. If you love good indie coastal music, you gotta keep these guys on your radar.

Having released a catchy single already, they promise to bring you plenty more music and big shows in 2023!
