Spilt Cities formed in 2012 and have put out scattered releases since then, including ep build/rebuild and the single Bondurant. Over the course of our existence, we’ve been fortunate enough to play both hometown and interstate shows with bands like Horror My Friend, Ceres, Ted Danson with Wolves as well as many other bands in the punk and emo scene. Add to this the support shows we have played with some bands that first influenced us, such as The Matches, mewithoutYou, and more recently playing as main support for Tigers Jaw and Balance and Composure.

All of this learning and fine tuning has culminated in our debut album, which was written and recorded over a two year period. Following the October 4th release, we will be launching the album in our hometown of Perth on October 21st, before taking it on the road to the East coast.

Yalla Yalla is a Perth-based progressive rock act who quietly released their debut EP “Centre Yourself” in 2015. The six-track release is a journey through the band’s musical development and has been described by their peers as “one of the best releases to come out of Perth in recent times”. Yalla Yalla have been writing new material for the follow up five-track EP “Tides” and in early 2017 commenced recording with plans to release late the same year. Tides showcases how Yalla Yalla have refined their sound, and the coherent layout of the tracks, together with flowing interludes you would expect to find on a concept album, demonstrates significant artistic growth since their debut.

The band is known for energetic live performances that have to be seen to understand what a powerhouse these guys are. It’s clear that they live to perform and love every second that they spend on the stage. Combining the melodic aspects of bands such as Radiohead with the energetic riffage of At The Drive In, Yalla Yalla paints with a truly unique sonic palette.

Hannah Smillie, aka the dynamic trio “Hannah”, burst into the Fremantle local music scene in early 2016 like Annie Oakley jumping the bar for a Dry Vermouth.

Hailing originally from Scotland, her family immigrated to our shores a decade ago when the heels of the Australian rock scene were a shadow of their former self. Falling in love with our garage rock style, Hannah has become somewhat of an Aussie expert on decades of Australian guitar vinyl that would put most locals to shame.

Now armed with her precious vintage style Hagstrom archtop and a powerful rhythm section, she is creating her own infectious guitar pop in the slip stream of everyone from The Easybeats to The Lime Spiders and even echoing a little from current female singer-songwriters like Courtney Barnett and Missy Higgins.

Hannah’s 2 nd EP “Onism” is hot off the press and ready to burn your ears with its infectious, soulful, individual, foot-tapping regalia.
