Pre-order the 12" vinyl and digital versions of CASCADES

Several years ago, while wandering around an abandoned warehouse in Melbourne's inner north, CASCADES' Sam Filmer came across a box of dusty old video tapes. After screening the tapes, Sam discovered hours of transferred 16mm footage from Melbourne and surrounds, from what looks like the 1950s and '60s.

The footage, shot by an unknown cameraperson, has the marks of a photographer or artist's hand. Colour and composition are incredible, and give us a unique insight into a long-gone period of Australian history, at times sunny and hopeful, and at other times dark and foreboding.

None of the footage has been altered, colour corrected, or manipulated besides being edited together.

If any viewers have a connection to the footage, or are able to identify any of the people that appear, please let us know so we can supply the footage to the family members in the video. Email: cascadesbandau AT gmail DOT com.

Video edited / produced by Sam Orchard.


this is Cold Bloom, the first single from our debut LP, CASCADES.

We recorded these songs with Joel Taylor at The Black Lodge late in 2016. This song, Cold Bloom, is about this country's insistence on clinging to resources like coal and woodchips and our resulting contribution to climate change. The band shares a lot of frustration around this issue, especially towards the rusted-on attitudes from conservative quarters here in Australia. The lyrics reference Earth Overshoot Day, the annual date on which humanity’s resource consumption for the year exceeds Earth’s capacity to regenerate those resources for the year.

Our own Sam Orchard put together this video. Coloured vinyl preorder info coming very soon.
