Last month yours truly wrote a little snippet about the Sounds Like Brisbane project which is, in essence, a compilation website that promotes indie music from artists Down Under. It was there that we were introduced to a digital single entitled “Washed Up” by a lil 3-piece from Brisbane called I Heart Hiroshima. Having been so impressed with the the band we had to learn more about them. First and foremost, they are Susie Patten (vocals, drums & percussion), Matthew Somers (lead vocals & lead guitar) and Cameron Hawes (rhythm guitar, keyboards, backing vocals) and since 2006 they have amassed a discography that currently numbers a half dozen studio releases that are mixture of EPs and singles as well as their 2009 full album release entiled The Rip. The latter of which features a track entitled “Shakeytown” (video above) which is 3+ minutes of alternative/indie power-pop bliss.
