REVIEWS

“The tightest live band I’ve seen in twenty years” Geoff Turner (The Radiators)

“Playing overtime on the M+M stereo this week is a track called Contagious which is just that, with loads of crunchy guitar, thumping drums and a powerhouse vocal performance”. (Noel Mengel - The Courier Mail)

“UPSIZE have created an EP of old-fashioned, dirty rock songs reminiscent of the glory days of Aussie rock’n’roll”. (DCR - Time Off)

"The mongrel-factor is upsized significantly as headliners UPSIZE unleash some ’70s-style rock.” (Michaela McGuire - Time Off)

“UPSIZE, another Brissy based band, with their amalgamation of 70’s style Guitar Rock and Powderfinger-esque style, were in my opinion the best of the Fest.” (Amy Stannard - Q Mag)
