Lex Maria hails from the famous bathing resort Malmö, in Sweden. “We say we are an indie punk band playing some sort of alternative rock, but we float in and out of genres including cat image influenced, sexually frustrated alternative rock.”
Noisy rock and alternative rock of the late ’80s and ’90s is what they grew up with and have always been present in their music. The band has been around for a couple of years, and the latest constellation got together in 2020.

Hailing from São Paulo, Mars Addict was formed in January 2018. The band says their sound combines the intensity of Punk Rock (RAMONES, RANCID) with melodies from the origins of Rock’n’Roll (BEATLES and ROLLING STONES).
Their single’ The Vast Of Night’ was inspired by the movie of the same name. The band wanted to reproduce the tension and mystery of the movie with their alt punk vibes. The song will be part of their second album, to be released later in the year.

Wolf & Chain, the Adelaide-based alt-rock/pop-punk outfit return with a goosebump-inducing single, ‘Phantom’.
Phantom’ was born out of the band’s time at a secluded farm, where they retreated to record demos and immerse themselves in the creative process. During their stay, the band members fell ill and encountered a dark, looming presence that influenced their songwriting. The result is a haunting and powerful track that documents their journey of self-discovery, defying the challenges they have each faced.
