Premiere: Garrett Kato – ‘River Mouth’

Originally from Canada and now set up shop in Byron Bay, singer-songwriter Garrett Kato is an artist who doesn’t need the bells and whistles and big production to fill a room. There’s a certain old world charm about hushed, raspy vocals that have the power to command a room or silence a storm. His new…

Running Touch – ‘When I’m Around You’

My favourite Melbourne enigma Running Touch is hitting the ground running in 2019 with new track ‘When I’m Around You‘ which we were lucky enough to hear played live at Beyond The Valley. The track comes loaded with punchy percussion, full-bodied whirling synths and a slick guitar riff that flows through the track through the…

MARINA – ‘Handmade Heaven’

Welsh artist Marina & The Diamonds is back with her first solo track in over four years, and she seems to have ditched The Diamonds? The stage name has always been described as Marina as being her fans, but we’ve seen for a while now Marina becoming a little bit annoyed by the fanbase that…

Anna Of The North – ‘Leaning On Myself’

If I didn’t know better I’d say that legendary Director Baz Luhrmann had directed the visually arresting music video for Anna Of The North‘s new track “Leaning On Myself“. The track explored melancholic moments of alternate pop with shimmering and meditative synths that are unmistakably Scandinavian. There’s a quirk to the track which makes you…

Dermot Kennedy – “Lost”

After a fresh lap of sold-out touring around Australia, Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy returns with another heart-wrenchingly beautiful and emotionally vulnerable raw track “Lost“. Honestly, if you can get through this track without being hit in the chest with a serious case of the feels then you’re a stronger person than I am. There is…

Set Mo – ‘Surrender’ LP

Set Mo’s debut record “Surrender” is overflowing with brilliantly crafted melodic house music, so much so that it’s runtime is at least 20 minutes too long. Opening strongly with moody spoken word opener “Surrender” and collaborations with Australian pop queens Asta (“Near”) and Woodes (“Counter Human Emotion”) Set Mo set the tone for an exploration…

Aurora – ‘Animal’

Some of us out here are still trying to gather together the pieces of their soul that were shattered when Aurora surprise released her devastatingly beautiful Sophomore ‘Infections Of A Different Kind – Step I‘ late last year today we are shattered again by a new release ‘Animal‘, perhaps her most energetic, primal and frenzied…
