This Sydney group is definitely one to watch.

Castlecomer are one of the best new bands in the Australian music scene. The homegrown Sydney crew are making big waves with their alternative, folk style sounding like a mix between Vance Joy and Kingswood.
Comprised of four cousins and a close friend, the band is made up of Bede (rhythm guitar/vocals), Tom (lead guitar/vocals), Joe (bass/vocals), Joey (keys/vocals), Pat (drums/vocals).
In the last few years they have been going from strength to strength culminating in their recent win as the 2013's New Artist to Radio award.
From all reports they're awesome live (look at the videos below) and they've got some dates coming up for their East Coast tour (below).
