In an average lifetime a person will have spent six full years dreaming, and over a quarter of a century asleep. We cling to these fleeting moments every morning, clutching at wisps of dreams as they slip through our fingers. Like dreams, RLMDL (pronounced Role Model) captivates while continually transforming before its viewer's eyes and ears. Becoming a blend of euphoria and truth, divinations and nightmares. So don't blink, you might miss something.

RLMDL's music is an embodiment and a culmination of the human condition, intertwined with enthralling lyrics, lucid melodies and a rhythmic core that pulsates, as if to emulate the waves of an unknown ocean pounding against the hull of a mysterious vessel, that is traveling to an undiscovered land. Traveling into the realm of RLMDL is very much like squinting into the depths of a dark pool and finding a wealth of pearls and treasure within the seabed.

Like the swaying of a gypsy's medallion, the RLMDL experience is both hypnotic and enlightening. Existing not only as a purely musical entity, RLMDL prides itself for putting a great deal of care into the artistic side of the visuals that accompany their music, for both live and digital audiences. Striking close to the heart of its fans, RLMDL gently leads us by our heart chords through a winding canyon of dreamlike apparitions, to what can only be described as the methodical end of a truly unique journey and an inevitable return to reality.
Glass Towers - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Sydney, via-Byron Bay, band Glass Towers are at the vanguard of a new wave of Australian musicians who are creating waves internationally and at home via a very Australian brand of sun-drenched melodies and material which carries a deceptive undercurrent of depth and weight.
For such a young band, their debut album, HALCYON DAYS, has generated some crazy noise in Australia and Japan where Glass Towers have forged a reputation as damn fine live proposition, following tours with the likes of The Kooks and Metric. Hell, even Neil Finn (yes, he of Crowded House fame) personally invited the band to open for his new Pajama Club project.
The songwriting on HALCYON DAYS deals with the universal themes and struggles faced during the delicate transition from youth to young adulthood – most of the songs written by lead singer Ben Hannam when he was still in his early teens, and forged into existence with a newly formed band of High School friends.
Glass Towers list of influences runs deep. From the literary genius of Jack Kerouac to the madcap mind of Syd Barrett and effortless cool of Lou Reed. From a childhood raised on a somewhat oddball mixture of Neil Diamond, Roxy Music and Simon & Garfunkel, to the paintings of J.M.W Turner and photographs of Robert Doisneau – all can be heard across the stunning debut album.
HALCYON DAYS was released to critical acclaim in Australia and Japan in late 2013, winning fans and accolades such as Triple J Feature album, #1 AIR Chart Debut, Tower Records Japan Album Of The Week and Rolling Stone Award nominations. The album will be released in the US and Canada in 2014 via Dine Alone Records (where label-mates include the likes of City & Colour and Tokyo Police Club) and Glass Towers will continue to do what they do best – bringing their music to the World one amazing show at a time, taking no prisoners along the way.
