While we’re all busy looking forward to make 2015 a fantastic year, Cleatus and Wes took a quick look back at some of our favourite releases of 2014. We wanted to keep it short and sweet so we’ve narrowed it down to 5 categories. We’ve also listed a few honourable mentions, because choosing one for each category was actually quite hard.

Ceres – Selfish Prick

There was no shortage of fantastic EP releases this year: Brisbane ‘supergroup’ Orphans Orphans’ gave us a great debut with What’s A Boy S’posed To Do?; The Bennies followed up last year’s album with another cracker in Heavy Disco, and Luna Ghost impressed us with their self-titled debut back in March. Ceres though surprised us this year putting out an EP in late November and absolutely blowing our minds.

Ceres’ year was epic by any measure. Supporting some of the biggest names in Aussie music and releasing their acclaimed album I Don’t Want To Be Anywhere But Here clearly wasn’t enough, they decided to drop their Selfish Prick EP on us out of nowhere, and we are so glad they did. There may only be four tracks but they are “catchy beyond belief” and each track is fully realised as a pop punk gem. If they can keep this up, Ceres will soon be a household name.
