So back to the show. Next up were a young band called Locus Wimple, and they had a really good feel going on. These guys are a band to look out for in the future. I would definitely recommend checking out their myspace and giving them a quick listen, it'll be worth your time! They had a very mature sound for a band that has only been around for a while, well done lads, you got the crowd going! With some awesome guitar riffs and some really chilled out vocals on a few of their songs, the music just fit together really well. The band is made up of, Matt, Andy, Jenni and Damien. These guys have already played a few big gigs, at Caxton st and also at The Loft down at the Gold Coast so watch out for them.

Locus Wimple take to the stage with a sound that would probably have been considered progressive in the mid ‘90s. With a tone just a touch too bright to hit them with the grunge stamp, they manage to keep things interesting with a modern take on what is essentially garage rock. The band is tight, and while it's sometimes difficult picking out the lyrics through the singer’s slightly mumbled vocals, they manage to impress with a few great tracks including an indie style song with a great beat that is only two weeks old. They chase it with their single Picture Of Your Lonely, which you could be forgiven for thinking is an attempt to channel Sonic Youth. A few good songs later and the guys have delivered quite a respectable set.

You wouldn’t expect lead singer Matt Powell to have such a great voice, but he does, and he effortlessly lead the way through a set of awesome indie songs. Locus Wimple’s EP was recorded solely by Matt in his bedroom, and it wasn’t ‘til later that the band members were found to fill out the live show. The EP has an amazing sound, and Locus Wimple measured up on the live front. Apparently, their drummer had only been with them a week, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell this as he was firing on all fronts. The bass was pumping, and the synth added that extra needed layer atop of Matt Powell’s electric guitar.

We settled in to enjoy the band called Locus Wimple. They were young and very talented band. On talking to the band later in the evening, they told me they had volunteered to do the gig for free to help Doug raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctors. The band was fantastic - Woodford Newspaper

Hello! And welcome to Locus Wimple's house. Locus Wimple started in the small bedroom of the lead singer/songwriter/guitarist's (Matt Powell) house in 2007, where his need for songwriting and production started. Time flew by and before he knew it there were original songs everywhere. The years passed, he recorded them all in his studio (bedroom), each song growing upon the last, until he made an EP of 6 of his songs. A band was needed to perform the songs live and in 2011 Locus Wimple was born.

With Matt Powell on guitar and vocals, Andy Barra on drums, Damien Stapleton on Bass and Jenni Rickward on synth, this young band creates a distinct sound which comes from a fusion of alternative, rock, psychedelic, grunge, electro, acoustic and sometimes with a folksy edge. The rawness plays a key role in the sound of Locus Wimple too, with various house creaks and noises which can be heard in recordings.

Hopefully that helps you understand who we are. I'll let you go and have a listen to our songs. Thanks for reading! Peace.
