Love Thy Neighbour: Tiny Migrants - Uncontrolable

Monday 18th March, 2013 2:38PM

Australia is good for some things: comparatively high wages, year-round sunshine and all of the deadly insects and reptiles you could ever hope to encounter. They've also got their fair share of decent alternative music (no, not Gotye), and thus we've decided to join forces with our pals over at Australian alt-music site Who The Hell, to swap a band with each other every Monday. Today, Who The Hell introduces us to Tiny Migrants and their new song 'Uncontrolable'.

"Tiny Migrants are a five piece from Brisbane who describe themselves as ‘Space Garage Pirates’. If that description could be applied to every other DIY garage band in the state, it probably would work. Brisbane has always been fertile ground for new bands, especially surf-pop, garage up and comers and kids who love drinking reverb. The international music press is still harping on about DZ Deathrays, Bleeding Knees Club and Dune Rats, so Brissie's done something right.

Tiny Migrants are another band who’ve been kicking around the Brisbane scene for a while. They’ve played with Ty Segall, The Black Lips, released some solid EPs and encouraged loutish behaviour at VICE shindigs and general house parties across the state.

Their new track ‘Uncontrolable’ (too wild for conventional spelling, apparently) kicks down doors. This track doesn’t waste one second of its 2:12 running time, starting out with a blazing beat from Tiger Beams’ Jesse Hawkins, picking up some tambourine and a dusty bass line before Julien James’s spazzy guitar and vocal yelps complete a volatile experiment in damn exciting R ‘n’ R. This track is the sound of going a little too far and taking a little too much. Jacinta Walker’s backing vocals are almost taunts, daring the listener to follow the band into the hole they’re gleefully throwing themselves into.

With more releases due out in 2013, keep your eyes open and your ears pricked for Tiny Migrants, ‘cause they’re coming for you."
