Fairchild Republic

Adam Lyons' melodramatic lyrics and delivery stamp a Killers-esque mark on these Gold Coast new-comers.

Their songs smack of high-school angst - there more than a touch of Jared Leto's 30 Seconds From Mars mainstream-faking-alternative - with frequent visits to lonely souls, lost ways, mantras to staying young for ever and misunderstood love.

That said, the four-piece has a stadium-sized sound and an insistent, driving rhythm to their melodious rock - just the sort of thing to play as the credits roll on the next teen hit movie.

To think that the GC can pump out bronzed bodies, surf-lite bikini babes and Mozzie popsters... and still has room for this epic, soulful moodiness.
