Spraying radiant beams of effervescent pop like a fully opened garden hose let loose, we are so very pleased to premiere the new single ‘Bonfire’ by Dahlia Ray. The paean to resilience and joy – surely something we could all do with a heavy dose right now – perfectly captures a summer vibe and abandoned …

We are very honoured to premiere the debut track from Eora/Sydney-based outfit GRXCE entitled ‘Pretty Boy’ – a driving track about superficiality and image delivered over a quiet/loud tone and singer Jamila Grace’s evocative, sardonic vocals that lay a soft velvet cloak over the scything guitars. This is grunge pop at its very best – …

Kaeda Daze is the nome de plume of Kendra Fewster, a former member of WA folk/pop band ‘The Hunting Birds’, and her new solo work is sublime. Showcasing Fewster’s velvet soft expressive vocals, her debut solo track ‘Running From Something’ is a warm enveloping track that seems to magically float like clouds: billowing, soft and …

We are very pleased to premiere the debut single ‘Chain of Fire’ from Sydney band Big Wheels. This is a stunning entre to the world of Big Wheels: an alt country flavour with yearning, layered vocals and harmonies ringing out over jangling, shimmering instrumentation. It is a track that sparkles like jewels in the sun. …

Horns atmospherically frame the track, with a jingle jangle pop sparkle that recalls George Harrison, …

Do you remember that fantastic single ‘Steal My Sunshine‘ by Len? An utterly brilliant and joyous track that brought – and still brings – a smile to the dial. The debut single ‘Try To Be Cool’ from Melbourne trio J4 imports that same carefree joie de vivre: it’s a catchy uplifting and jaunty tune that …

Bellwether have released a dynamic slab of indie rock with their single ‘Shortsighted’, incorporating a Pixies-style quiet/loud ethic and a huge anthemic blast of melody. What is even more impressive is that this is their debut single. Based in Sydney, the band has grown from a number of local acts into something of some stature: …

Adelaide residents Caroline and Claude are actually siblings Hannah and Dylan but, nevertheless, the less their debut single ‘Stir the Pot’ is a hyperactive cheeky slice of indie pop with its tongue firmly planted in the cheek. It provides the perfect antidote to the current climes and has a lyrical adroitness with a proud Australian …

Qualified optimism never sounded so melancholic and measured than in the beautiful debut single from The Petrov Affair, a Sydney trio consisting of Murray Lee (Vocals, Keyboards, Guitar), Bruce Thomas (Guitar, Vocals) and Glenn Cone (Bass). Members were formerly in the band The Lee Three. ‘Back On Top’ has a stately and yearning piano riff …

MANCHESTER indie-pop and post-punk outfit Blanketman have come a long way since their early years. A band that has created a hard-earned and well-deserved name for themselves after performing extensively in their hometown, it’s no surprise that their debut EP, the brilliantly titled National Trust, is very much about their own story and identity. Arguably …
