They’ve spent the past 12 months gigging around the country; whether it be intimate local gigs, huge support slots or electrifying festival sets, earning new fans and a strong reputation at every turn.

Single review: Spookyland, ‘Rock and Roll Weakling’

Sydney’s Spookyland are unlike anything else I’ve heard recently, and that alone draws me in. Their four-track EP Rock and Roll Weakling was released earlier this year to critical acclaim, and they’ve been a radio-staple, as well as playing to packed venues ever since. Title track “Rock and Roll Weakling” is a soulful, emotional and seriously powerful […]

By now, you’ve probably (or hopefully) heard “Higher” SBTRKT’s (second) newest single, which dropped earlier this week and features young gun Raury on vocals. Between his husky rapping and soulful crooning, Raury makes the track as breathtaking as it is, creating what will undoubtedly be a standout track on SBTRKT’s forthcoming sophomore album.
