We are very honoured to premiere today the gorgeous new slice of indie pop from Perth resident Damien Binder, ‘Don’t Know What’. Binder’s New Zealand roots shine through in this slice of melancholia with the achingly beautiful pop genes of Crowded House shimmering in the delivery. Binder’s vocals are expressive and filled with an air …

We are pleased to premiere today the new single ‘Tomato Plants’ from Sydney singer/songwriter Richard Cuthbert: a delightful jaunty paean to the joys of agriculture involving the iconic red fruit. Layered harmonies and a poptastic lilt sees yet another winner from Cuthbert who as an ear for melody and a knack for lyrical humour. Cuthbert …

We’ve got a lot of time for Brooklynites My Son the Doctor here at Backseat Mafia. We premiered ‘Bethany’ a couple of weeks ago, and with the release of their new EP on the horizon, we’ve got one last appetiser for you before the full six-song meal is served up next week, in the form …

Also part of Human Beat and Seriously, the Alabama-based Chayse Porter has put in further work as a solo artist. He’s performed with a live band, which used to be an entirely separate thing from his solo work, but not anymore – the band name has duly been lifted for the title of his next …

We premiered the video for his side-project trio Leon Creek‘s ‘Shakes the Ground’ last month and are delighted to share a full stream …

We are honoured to give you an early listen to Sydney musician Bryan Estepa‘s new EP ‘Back to the Middle’. Estepa is a master of the finely crafted pop song: indelible melodies, jangling guitars, glorious harmonies and a shimmering sense of optimism and joy. ‘Back to the Middle’ perfectly captures this: it is a sunshine-infused …

Back in July, Winnipeg-based quintet Royal Canoe released a rather good new record called Sidelining, the fruits of the band’s labour over the two years since 2019’s Waver. They probably weren’t planning on putting together a follow-up so soon, but seizing upon the lone upside of a pandemic putting the last year on ice sounds …

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).
