We are very pleased to premiere the new track ‘Tide In Tide Out’ from Aphra. ‘Tide In Tide Out’ is a bright and effervescent track that has a folksh tinge and an aquatic, seaside feel about it – lapping waves and seagulls sounds give way to a bright pace and a muscular pop melody. The …

He’s been part of a number of bands including the live setup for Tycho, but Billy Kim has only recently started to embark on a musical venture of his own. Back in March, the artist also known as Karaboudjan (yes, that is a The Adventures of Tintin reference) released his debut single ‘Seems Like’, and …

A song whose chorus is, ‘It seems like everything runs on repeat’ could be a little too on-the-nose as a covid-era track, but it suits our current times so well that it comes as a relief to learn that it was finished pre-pandemic, not to mention the album it’s the lead single from. Say hello …

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.

East London’s HUXLXY closed out 2020 on a high with ‘Punk Rock Kids‘, a cinematic affair that mixed buzzing riffs with swaggering R&B and big-room production. Now he’s opening his 2021 account; the year’s half over, so what’s he been up to in the meantime? Putting the finishing touches on a new EP, as it …

Versari put on display their cool and arctic nature with the brilliant new video for the track ‘Brûle’, one which we are proud to premiere here on Backseat Mafia today. A clever remix of ‘Brûle’ was recently released in an EP of the same name, premiered by Backseat Mafia recently, and the original track comes …

We are very honoured to premiere ‘Reflector Shield’ – a classical indie pop anthem replete with undulating waves of sparkling guitars, a thundering percussion and passionate vocals burnished with some gorgeous harmonies. The responsible culprits, Anatomy Class, have been here before, of course – read my review of their earlier single ‘Welcome to the Ages’ …

We are very honoured to premiere the new single ‘What You See Is What You Get’ from Sydney’s brilliant Magnetic Heads: a gloriously rich synth-injected eighties-influenced motorik blast. Singer/songwriter Des Miller has the velvet rich, deep and resonant vocals of Ian Curtis, David Bowie or Iggy Pop, and the band has the syncopated rhythms and …
