Aussie Invasion – Andy Bull and Birds of Tokyo

Written by

Jason Bentley returns to take the reins of MBE tomorrow (he’s had Chris Douridas and Anne Litt subbing while attending EDC in Las Vegas!) and to welcome him back, I wanted to share a few of the songs he’s been spinning recently – both Aussie artists!

Andy Bull is getting big love from Triple J radio in his native country. Every time Jason plays it, The Cars-like synthy intro always catches my attention. He produced the song himself and it has a lot of swagger. I love it:

From dance pop to the epic indie rock of “Lanterns” from Birds of Tokyo. Formed in Perth, the band has spent time in Sydney, a French farmhouse and here in LA, honing their sound over four albums and two EPs.  Though it’s a bit poppier, fans of The National should dig their somewhat dark, anthemic sound.

I hear the band has been in LA this month so perhaps more new music is on the way soon.
