Melbourne indie-pop collective Approachable Members Of Your Local Community will win new fans with their name alone. Whilst frustratingly long and undeniably cool, their name "pays homage to the community their grandparents helped form after fleeing from Eastern-Europe and arriving as refugees to Melbourne". Their music is pretty great too.
Their latest release, ‘Semiotic Vision', is a pop groover, with an unbelievably infectious hook and funky undertones. Securing features on New Music Friday and Your Office stereo, the band have enjoyed an increase in their total playlist following to just under 500,000 this week. With over 25,000 streams since its release last week, we expect this track to rise further in the coming weeks (TalentAI).
