Jacob Fitzgerald‘s inherent ability to write perfectly formed pop songs that sparkle and shimmer is proven yet again with his new track ‘Lonely’. Pressing gently on the brakes after the fizzy pop of earlier single ‘Pretty Good For My Mind‘, ‘Lonely’ has a slower paced trot and a faint touch of americana in its yearning …

Skybelly (the nom de plume of Sara Nelson) has just released her stunning debut album, ‘A Space Tramp Odyssey’: a widely evocative and creative magnus opus which is a deep and rich concept album. Operatic and dramatic in nature, it is a stunningly brave debut which adeptly creates an alternate reality that is steeped in …

Floating like a butterfly over verdant fields, ‘Reunion’, the new single from Melbourne dream pop duo Grazer, is a gloriously ethereal track that sparkles and shimmers like diamonds in the bright sunshine. Grazer first caught my attention back in July with the release of their double ‘A’ side single ‘Without You’ and ‘Visions’ following their …

Last month we had the honour to premiere the single ‘The Excavator’ from Melbourne artist Anna Smyrk which showcased her gorgeous vocals and bright pop style. Smyrk has now released the EP ‘The Hour Between Us’ which cements her reputation as a significant songwriter with an exceptional voice. This is a collection of vibrant pop …

‘Eternal’, the new single from Melbourne’s Fleeting Persuasion, prowls and circles with a delicious brooding intensity and dark gothic undertones. There is a euphoric mix of a new wave arctic chill with the jangling angular guitars and something more electronic and syncopated. A subtle touch of backing vocals adds a delicate shaft of light. It …

The vivid, sparkling and unbound imagination of Sara Nelson, working under the name Skybelly, creates a whole new universe in her forthcoming album ‘A Space Tramp Odyssey’, due out on 23 September 2021. As a taste of what’s to come, we are honoured to premiere the track ‘Sapphire’ which is due out on 17 September …

We wrote recently that Jacob Fitzgerald‘s single ‘Pretty Good For My Mind’ fizzes like a shaken bottle of carbonated pop opened while trampolining, with a quite sprightly bounce and a style of its own. It is a track that is infectious with no vaccination needed (although, please, get one anyway). Fitzgerald has now released a …

This is a sparkling collection of exquisite dream pop finery: spread across 14 …
