New single: Tei Shi ‘Bassically’

Every so often a song comes around that I just can’t stop listening to. This is one of them. Tei Shi is Valerie Teicher, and she’s just signed with Caroline Australia. Her new single Bassically came out last week and it’s hit the internet HARD. It only takes one listen to understand why, but I’m pretty sure […]

Odesza remixed Charli XCX

British pop star Charli XCX isn’t normally the kind of thing we post about here, but when she’s been remixed by ODESZA, it’s excusable. Her bangin’ electro-pop track Break The Rules is the kind of thing that fills pre-teen/teen/high-school dance-floors. It was also produced by Cashmere Cat which is pretty funny. It follows on from her […]

New single: DMA’s ‘Laced’

Sydney’s DMA’s have released another new single, “Laced.” It follows up “So We Know,” and it shows a totally different side of the young three-piece. While “So We Know” was a raw, largely acoustic emotion-packed track, this one is bubbling and boiling with energy and excitement. “Laced” is absolutely dreamy from start to end. Opening with […]

New single: Yeo, ‘Secret Powers’ ft. Yule Post

Following up his first two singles “Kobe” and “Girl,” Yeo has now released “Secret Powers,” proving once again that there’s something utterly unique about the talented Melbourne producer. “Secret Powers” is a synth-based tune that’s so much more than just a synth-based tune. Opening with misty, muffled synths and a subdued beat, the gorgeous melody is rich and […]

Why you should go to Laneway and see Future Islands

Sam Herring, the most peculiar breakout celebrity of this year, has just hurled himself across the stage at the Joy Eslava in Madrid. He bellows out one of those Letterman-famed guttural growls, and slices up his arm and hand on the equipment. Blood streams down his arm and, no doubt, he doesn´t notice it for […]

Single Review: Robbie Miller ‘Sunday’

Singer-songwiter, Robbie Miller, brings a humble charm to the table with his new single, Sunday. The Brisbane-based musician was swept into a whirlwind last year, winning the Triple J Unearthed National Indigenous Music Awards, supporting The Paper Kites and gaining national airplay with his track, Don’t Go Walking Away. Admittedly written about his ‘Nanna’, the genuine and delicate track […]
