Magnus @ Captain Cook Hotel w Dividers & Shake Your Blood
Captain Cook Hotel, 1/162 Flinders St, Paddington, NSW
MAGNUS "The band clearly likes to tease and with terrific self-confidence in their undoubted abilities the approach does create a lively anxiousness within their music." - Sydney Morning Herald
"...the “oddly timed stoner jazz rock with a dash of goth” (as their Facebook page so perfectly describes them) trio have made a name for themselves with a sound unlike any other – numbing hooks tied with groovy basslines, jam-worthy riffs and a voice so goddamn powerful the US are using it to overthrow Russia." - Blunt Magazine
Shake Your Blood SYB’s self-produced debut EP - Open Season - was released in September 2015; a six-track mixture of earthy rock riffs, a heavy and hearty sound, mixed with intricate grooves and charismatic chords, colourful imagery and a consistent melodic drive. http://www.shakeyourblood.com.au/
Dividers "With a duo of moustaches on the rhythm section, I will say that this rock band was the stand-out of the night. With excellent dynamics and a well-rehearsed sound, this band sits somewhere in between Foo Fighters and Billy Talent. One of the stand-out songs, If These Walls Could Talk grabbed the audience’s attention and more and more people filtered into the room. Another highlight was their cover of Cupids Chokehold which they played in an almost prog-rock style."
