25 Little Aussies That Little Indie Loved In 2015




We frequently joke that given the number of Australian artists we feature on Little Indie, we really should start a 'Little Aussie' offshoot! There's no doubt that Australia has been producing some truly wonderful bands and solo artists over the last few years in all genres, with the last 12 months being especially rich in pickings.

Here, in no particular order, are 25 of the many we featured and loved in 2015 and are looking forward to hearing more from in 2016.

TEISCHA
18-year-old Perth singer/ songwriter Teischa Jones whose alt-soul vocals augur well for her 2016 debut EP.



PLEBS
Melbourne garage punks.



GREEN BUZZARD
Undoubtedly one of our favourite Oz bands of the year. Psych garage-gaze from Sydney five-piece.
