Each set was recorded at a different venue, with DZ Deathrays performing at the Triffid in Brisbane, and Stand Atlantic at Max Watt’s House of Music in Sydney.
Meanwhile, the Dead Love’s performance was filmed at Wollongong’s 3sixty skate park, Yours Truly at the Hayden Orpheum cinema in Sydney, and Waxflower at the Zoo in Brisbane.
DZ Deathrays are set to release their fifth album, ‘Positive Rising: Part 2’, on July 9. It will feature the singles ‘Fired Up’, ‘All Or Nothing’, ‘Make Yourself Mad’ and the Ecca Vandal collaboration ‘Fear The Anchor’.
Meanwhile, Stand Atlantic released their second album, ‘Pink Elephant’, in August of last year.
In a four-star review, NME‘s Ali Shutler said, “Interesting, excitable and with a wicked sense of self, the album is full of big choruses and bigger dreams as the band wear their hearts on their sleeve and chase the thrill of the new.”
Hot on the heels of its release, which offered singles ‘Wavelength’, ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Blurry’, the band dropped a collaborative standalone release with rapper nothing, nowhere. titled ‘deathwish’.
Members of Stand Atlantic will perform at Sydney’s Crowbar on June 5, as part of a fundraising effort to keep the venue open. DZ Deathrays will perform a DJ set at a separate fundraising event happening tomorrow (May 29).
