Heard these guys recently on Channel 31 – at least the singer and guitarist did a couple of live acoustic tracks. Lead vocalist Andy Rosier has a mighty pop voice which tends to gets swamped amid the band’s jangly guitars and drums. Red Season is a Melbourne outfit as previously stated Andy Rosier on lead […]
