THE SOUNDS OF MODERN AUSTRALIA
AND MORE

When we think about modern Australia, it can be hard to define. Our land is so wide, encompassing and multicultural that the idea of settling into a single style becomes a matter of preference. If you’re bringing music into the equation, it gets more complicated again. That’s why we instead of answering this intriguingly difficult question, we decided to ask it.
