An overdue update on Youthrock 2015, for anyone yet to hear this good news:
Current MEP members Gone Electric and former rockband program participants The Citizens both made the grand final. The Citizens placed 2nd…again! narrowly missing out on winning the entire competition for the second year in a row which was slightly disappointing but equally amazing. This year’s result was made even sweeter by the fact that they also took out a $1000 cash prize from Silverchair for the best song for their track ‘Nobody Knows You Like I Do’. Gone Electric meanwhile played very well and picked up a special finalist award which came with a day’s free studio time at Zen in St. Peters, a great result for their their first appearance in the final. With another year up their sleeve these guys are eyeing off the first Youthrock win for Rose Bay.
Congratulations to both bands!
