I’d heard a random track I really liked on my iPod, but because it was the shuffle I couldn’t see what it was called.
I googled some of the lyrics, and in the process came across tinyman which had some good music/gig reviews and put me onto some music I hadn’t heard before… I left a message on their messageboard and they posted a reply, so finally I have an answer. I [heart] the internet.
It turns out the band is called ‘On Inc.’ and the song is called ‘Am What I Am’. Oddly, despite lyrics like ‘miles of styles like Melbourne weather’, they’re from Newcastle. Through googling them, I found Australian Music Online which might be a good place to catch up with new Australian music.
