Those Who Ride With Giants

 

While the ‘band’ is really just one man – Sydney, Australia’s illustrator/animator/instrumental art rocker MJ Callaghan – the multi-layered instrumentation and spacious atmospherics make these performances feel and sound like a live band.

TWRWG’s first two releases generated significant support from the likes of Spotify and Apple Music tastemakers, which has prompted the formation of a live band, and the guys are in the process of booking their first run of dates.

A cumulative 9 million streams on Spotify and a highly engaged fanbase in China has made TWRWG one to watch for 2019, and Ostereo are thrilled to be working with them!

BTWN US

 

Melbourne-based band BTWN US (comprising of brothers Adrian and Daniel Juric and Nathan McCreanor) have recently released their first single ‘The Shame’ from their latest original EP.

Within the first few months of their previous single release, BTWN US charted in the top 40 on iTunes, with the track generating over 150k spins on Spotify and being viewed by fans all over the world through their hugely popular YouTube channel.

Their unmistakeable pop sound has already made a significant mark on the scene, amassing the over 46k monthly listeners on Spotify, 52k subscribers on YouTube and committed live audiences. Watch BTWN US space throughout 2019!
