New Weird Australia is an initiative designed to promote and support new eclectic and experimental Australian music through a variety of unique projects. Neither one genre nor another, New Weird Australia puts the spotlight on a new breed of innovative Australian artists and challenges our understanding of what music should be.
New Weird Australia is seeking expressions of interest from Australian musicians and audio artists actively pursuing an agenda of experimentation and innovation in any form or genre. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in featuring your music on a forthcoming release or on our podcast show – please provide links to your music for review (please supply download links such that we can review offline, no links for streaming files / media players) or send us material via Soundcloud. You can also post material to New Weird Australia, PO Box 67, Strawberry Hills, NSW 2012.
Due to the volume of submissions we receive, it’s not always possible to reply to each submission individually. We will be in touch if we’re interested in licencing the submission for a future release. Be assured that we do listen to every piece of music submitted, and such submissions are regularly played on our podcast show. You can find the archive of podcast playlists on our podcast page.
New Weird Australia is also seeking expressions of interest from graphic designers, visual artists, photographers and others working within the visual medium to develop cover art for each volume in the series. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in featuring your work on a forthcoming release, with relevant links.
