With more than 40 eligible submissions to score, the hand-selected Industry Judges had their work cut out for them in selecting a winner for the exclusive photo shoot with renowned Aus Music Photographer, Ian Laidlaw.
There was not much between the scores of the top artists, however University of Wollongong band Blackout Fun Club came out on top of the Judges Scores.
Blackout Fun Club claim themselves as “a creepy and cultish indie-rock outfit that oozed out of the South Coast sewers around mid-2019”.
The ‘Club pair their raw, powerful vocals with experimental guitar, and the 5-piece strives to hypnotise surfies, punks and artists alike with their unique on-stage charisma.
Following the recent release of their debut EP ‘Bust!‘, the band are excited to take their music from the Gong to nationwide.
Blackout Fun Club will work with Laidlaw to curate a photo shoot that will bring out their true essence, either in a studio or at an on-site location. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
