Knocking about between escalating dirty blues and echoes of garage punk, Melbourne’s Oscar Galt and The Eventual Somethings aren’t just another young suburban four-piece chiming in with their opinion of whether VB is any good or not. Residing in a Thornbury share house that the majority of northern Melbourne can blame some of their most clouded and seedy memories on, Oscar Galt has penned and primed his unhinged brand of brooding noise-rock and pulled together his nascent group of Eventual Somethings. Taking to some of Melbourne’s most endearingly well worn stages the likes of The Old Bar, Cherry Bar and Yah Yahs, Oscar Galt and his Eventual Somethings (Hollie Joyce, Alexander Biggs and Michael Hood,) continue to enthral band rooms with their unconstrained and shrieking junkyard stompers.
It’s a disarrayed collection of colliding influences, resulting in the wiriest of guitars taking the piss out of pummelling drums and vocals that are as battered as they are satirical. As a front-man and lyricist, Galt unassumingly presents himself as a pseudo-pragmatic commentator on dependence and exhaust.
Oscar Galt and The Eventual Somethings are currently working towards the release of two partnering EPs set for release in late 2015/early 2016 with cuts from the first, Play Things, set to drop this September. Produced and mixed by Shane O’Mara (Tim Rogers, Lisa Miller) in his Yarraville studio ‘Yikesville,’ the twin EPs see the band move into territory that’s more honest and wry than their past endeavours but just as stuck in the gutter.
