The Psychotic Reactions
A fuzzy vintage trio hailing from W.A. The Psychotic Reactions are a Walyalup based group renowned for their vintage psych sounds and flawless ability to draw together sounds of blues, rock ‘n’ roll and jazz alongside intricate lyricism and meaningful storytelling. Heavily influenced by the 60’s, the band are described by Triple J as “The real deal – rock enough for the pub, soothing enough to get under your skin, gritty enough to make you rub your eyes.”
Lead singer and creative pioneer of the band, Hannah Smillie, is an icon of the WA music industry, involved in an innumerable number of projects from diverse genres, and a powerhouse multi-instrumentalist. The warm, nostalgic sounds created by the group are beautifully paired with personal song writing, covering the questions and confusions of life, self and others.
Local outfit Sprinter are a psych rock band with a melting pot of influences. Formed in 2022, the brain-child of Jon Stapleton, Madi Hanley, Gus McKenzie and Lachie Hanley has rapidly grown into a world of fuzz guitars and other-worldly vocals sitting on a bed of rock solid, high-octane drums and bass.
Having already played with some of the best in the game, Sprinter are getting the tick of approval from psych rock heavyweights Frankie and The Witch Fingers and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets.
