Psychotropic indie-rock collective Donnarumma are hard-hitting Adelaide angst junkies with a brash sound to match. Their latest track ‘Rollercoaster’ is a permanent earworm full of adrenaline fuelled hooks and reverberating guitars, a definite change in pace from their previous release ‘Alien’. Check out ‘Rollercoaster’ here:
The diversity in their own musicality is extended to their previous music taste (but come on, I can’t be the only one excited about this nostalgic masterpiece of a mixtape) and frontman Louis has taken us back to the good ol’ mid 2000’s with the songs he listened to in High School.
Louis: Welcome to a time where Bluetooth on your phone actually made you look cool.
My Chemical Romance – ‘I’m Not Okay (I Promise)’
This cemented the idea that a side fringe was acceptable and my god, it was my duty to make it on point every day.
Paramore – ‘Misery Business’
This was my rebellious “Mum didn’t give me lunch money today and I gotta eat a god damn ham-cheese sandwich for lunch” song.
Fall Out Boy – ‘Thnks fr th Mmrs’
When my very commited, serious three week relationship ended in year 9, this was my song of aid.
Facedown – ‘Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’
I (used to) fake sing this in my room and then one day my sister walks in, she looks at me in disgust and then I cried. Literally my only memory about this song.
A Day to Remember – ‘The Downfall of us All’
The quintessential song I had playing in the background when owning noobs on Call of Duty.
System of a Down – ‘Chop Suey’
Look System of a Down are actually very decent and if you don’t agree, the 13 year old Louis will be unleashed and he’s gonna come to your house, write you a poem titled “No one understand me” for you to read.
30 Seconds to Mars – ‘The Kill (Bury Me)’
Oh… this just makes me sick, WHY WOULD I DO THIS TO MYSELF?!
