Listen to The Broadside Push

Introducing The Broadside Push.

“Frenetic guitar abuse and an engaging all encompassing madness that sets them well apart from the plethora of bands in the genre.” (Inpress).

The Broadside Push straddle the borderline between innovative contemporary songwriting and haunting echoes of a dark, distant folk tradition. From slow dirgy ballads to guitar driven antipodean rock, their sound is as diverse as it is inimitable. Featuring fiddle, mandolin, banjo, gutbucket guitars and a rhythm section so tight it'll make you uncomfortable, The Broadside Push are fast becoming one of Melbourne's most exciting live acts. Having graced the stages of some of our most loved live music venues, as well as playing festivals around Australia The Broadside Push are amassing a devoted following of listeners.

Evelyn - Review

Melbourne four-piece The Broadside Push are on song tonight, deep and rusty words oozing from every speaker in the place. With flawless backing vocals, brilliant mandolin and banjo playing, and lyrics such as "the butcher's windows full of brains and tripe", they are a band on the rise. Channeling The Bad Seeds and The Triffids, get in early because The Broadside Push are here for the long haul.

Northcote Social Club - Review

The Broadside Push are on and the evening takes a downright bawdy turn. The intriguingly-named frontman, Benezra (has a ring, don’t it?), has a gutturally resonant growl which is the perfect kind of voice for the If-Nick-Cave-Were-a-Gypsy and If-Pirates-Swaggered-Amongst-Us soundtrack of banjo, mandolin, fiddle, big papa double bass and choppy, reeling drums. Suffice to say these men were genius. I bought their 45.

Grace on the Banks

Pull out your cutthroats kids, The Broadside Push are setting up to launch and tour their debut full-length album Grace on the Banks. It is their second release, following hot on the heels of the 7" swinging single Purple Rouge. The thirteen track album features wide ranging instrumentation, from gutbucket guitars to heartbreak fiddle, mandolin, banjo, double bass and spine chilling percussion. Grace on the Banks is a musically diverse album, traversing tales from prison heart breakers to Aussie murder ballads, dirgy waltzes to dedications of blue love. This record retains a distinctive style throughout and reveals the musical touchstones of The Broadside Push in country, folk and Australian rock'n'roll traditions. In Grace on the Banks The Broadside Push have established a truly idiosyncratic sound, building on a long line of classic Australian artists the likes of the Triffids, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Kill Devil Hills and The Drones.

Ding Dong - Review

The Broadside Push take to the stage in a staunch onslaught of Southern Comfort garglin' blues. The muggy atmosphere inside, whiff of beer breath from the rowdy characters behind me make it feel as if I'm onboard a convict ship with a bunch of chum pirates as entertainment. Lurking banjo and swinging mandolin, Purple Rouge is a robust sea shanty fare with CW Stoneking trimmings on the side. Lead singer Benezra's gutsy vocals sounds like they've been through a cheese grater (in the best possible way). "We were a long time in the making, I'm gonna see you on auspicious days" sings Benezra in 'Bound to You', a powerful Nick Cave sounding blues ballad, may be simply strung lyrically, but is poignant in delivery.

East Brunswick Club - Review

They start out sounding almost straight country, no 'alt' or 'death' to speak of, just songs sung in a broad and unapologetic Aussie accent and foot-stomping, yea-hah inducing melody. The only hint of something slightly off-kilter is a double instead of an electric bass. By the middle of the set, though, it's obvious these guys have so much more going on. There is Triffids level writing - yellow tiled pubs and Jindabyne and angels falling down from heaven - frenetic guitar abuse and an engaging, all encompassing madness that sets them well apart from the plethora of bands in the 'genre'.

Purple Rouge 7" LP

Purple Rouge is The Broadside Push's first release. Out on 7 inch vinyl, it has a good crack at crystalizing what the band are all about! The A side presents the title track in all the analogue warmth of a vinyl ripper. 'Purple Rouge' is a cold hearted / hot blooded love song. Side B is something completely different. 'Dog & Moth' is a trad styled tale of sin and damnation.
