Artist discography


Flipside or Strange Celebrity, which they call themselves these days recently released this album called ?Remedy? on Curb records. And this is a really fine album if you?re into sunshine modern rock like we have been given from some Aussies bands the last years. These guys aren?t from Australia, but has a sound not far away from the very nice band Taxiride or like a down under version of The Calling. Catchy melodies combined with crispy guitars are some of the ingredients in their receipt, which works really fine on me and sure those who shares the same taste as me. The album opens really strong with ?Free? that has a great riff and a pure hit orientated chorus that just get stuck. The songs are co written by Chris Rodriguez, which ain?t the only great artist they have worked with on this album. Six of eleven songs on ?Remedy? is partly written by Danny Wilde of The Rembrandts, which also have produced almost every song here. And can he do a bad job? No, of course he can?t cause this album is really good and actually has no really weak moment. The songs are good, the production is great and Luke Brown has a perfect voice for this kind of rock so why complain. A must if you?re into the more pop orientated side of rock like Taxiride, The Calling and Bliss 66.
One last thing! I must recommend you to listen to ?Dangerous? and ?Perfect world?, which both are a little bit softer and smells Jude Cole at his best moments.

Cant get enough of music like this!!

listen on spotify

Did you know that?

Their name is Icelandic wordplay: while the individual words Sigur and Rós mean, respectively, Victory and Rose, "Victory Rose" wouldn´t be grammatically correct; the name is actually borrowed from Jónsi´s younger sister Sigurrós Elin, who was born the same day as the band was formed, and then split into two words.
