On aesthetics alone, the artwork for Aren’t‘s new EP ‘Creatures Of Habit’ (illustrated by Grace Taylor) is extraordinarily beautiful. Fittingly, the illustrations have a joyous emotional warmth and fragility that is a palimpsest for the shimmering songs within, reflecting the stunning music within.

After pleasantly assaulting us with their thumping track ‘Downbeat’ (see my review here) , Brisbane band Terra Pines have pressed ever so gently on the brakes and released the dreamy almost ambient shimmer of ‘Harp On’; a dream-popped sonic landscape with a hypnotic flow and gentle melodies. A muscular bass, shimmering guitars and ethereal keys …

After first coming to our attention with the single ‘Panic At The Party’, Mumbai-born, Brisbane-based artist Ash Lune is back with news of her debut EP ‘Broken Science Experiments’ due for release on 11 February 2022 and another shining single ‘Broken’. Lune’s voice is magnificent – loaded with yearning and melancholy, evoking soft velvet and …

Brisbane artist Aren’t‘s new single ‘For Love’ is exquisitely beautiful – a poised and reflective piece of indie folk that is delicate and mesmerising. I was lucky enough to witness to this being played live at the recent 4000 Records Birthday Party (where the hauntingly glacial Amber Ramsay from Cloud Tangle took on the backing …

Brisbane band Requin burned brightly but tragically briefly, leaving behind an impressive body of work (see our review of the single ‘Rules That Won’t Be Broken’ last year). All is not lost however – Fionn Richards from the band has formed the project Aren’t, and we are honoured to provide an exclusive listen to the …
