Monet’s Pond – essentially the work of Brigette Lawrence – is adding to the flourishing and verdant music scene in Brisbane, and her new single ‘Floating in Air’ does just that: it’s an ethereal, psychedelic melange of whirling sounds and a sonic haze that seems free of gravitational pull. The swirling panoply of sound creates …

We are very honoured to premiere the statuesque and elegant dream pop track ‘Don’t Forget’ from Brisbane band Spring Skier. Soaked in an astral seventies sheen with dual melodies and harmonies that recall bands like Bread, 10CC or The Corgis, this is wide, expansive music that positively sparkles. The lush instrumentation, indelible melodies and an …

It’s been nearly two years since we reviewed the delightful album ‘Last Light’ from Brisbane’s dream pop giants syrup go on. They have returned after a year of songwriting, development and, I presume, avoiding the maelstrom of COVID with a new single: the luminescent and sparkling track ‘Lavender Sky’. Evoking images of pastoral, bucolic countrysides …

The Goon Sax have released their third album ‘Mirror II’ and it confirms their special place amongst Australian indie royalty. The album is essentially one of two parts – there is a softer pop element to the tracks released as singles with their glittery sheen and there is a more angular side that is brittle …

Fingerless are consistently proving themselves to be a fascinating bunch: their singles are constantly evolving and changing, and each time they veer in another direction, they prove themselves masterful innovators and extraordinary songwriters. Their new single’ Leaf of Stone’ – which we are very honoured to premiere today – is a psychedelic wig out – …

There is a lightness in ‘Stories You Tell Yourself’ that gives wings to a series of delicate and intricate songs filled with Strangely Enough‘s Greg Olley’s glorious voice and celestial melodies. Infused with just a touch of jazz expression, more in the free flowing architecture, these songs are evocative gems that glitter and entrance. The …

We are very honoured to premiere the title track of the new EP ‘Get Heat’ from Brisbane artist/songwriter/producer extraordinaire David Rylands, out through that purveyor of good taste, False Peak Records, on Sunday, 20 August 2021. This is quite a tremendous piece of electronica that, for me, brings to mind a meeting between Kraftwerk, Cabaret …

After the stunning return earlier this year with the single ‘In The Stone’ (reviewed by me here) , The Goon Sax are back with another brilliant single ‘Psychic’ in the run up to the release of their third album ‘Mirror II’ in July. ‘Psychic’ is further evidence of the creative brilliance of this Brisbane trio …

‘Strange Situation’, the recent track by Dopamine, is a warm and fuzzy, driving track that has a low-fi charm and a riff as mountainous and compelling as the Dandenong Ranges. There is a Mancunian swagger to the track with its melodic choruses, chugging guitars and wry lyrics. It really is a sparkling gem which has …

Lucy Francesca Dron‘s new EP ‘Leftovers’ showcases her vibrant and dynamic songwriting and inherent style as well as a voice soaked in late night excess, pain and poetry. ‘Leftovers’ is pure theatricality and poise: torchlit songs that shine with passion. First track ‘What Is Next’ has almost a jazzy element and a fast complex pace, …
