New Music – 12.10.18

The Wrap is POPHRT’s weekly rundown of all the songs that we’ve fallen in love with this weekend, all put in one place/playlist and delivered with a cute little bow on top of it all. This week we’re falling head over heels for tracks from newcomer Yorke, returner Japanese Wallpaper and Eurovision top 10 Mikolas…

POLARHEART | DYSTOPIA

FUN FACT!!!  Sydney duo Polarheart got their first play on Triple J’s Goodnight Program when I was a guest selector for the night and decided to play their track “Livealie“. The duo have been working hard and it’s been really paying off for the pair with people all over the place praising their previous singles….

FLUME | SOME MINDS FEAT. ANDREW WYATT

Honestly I used to think that Flume was overrated. I mean yes he made some good music but I never really got why people would fall over themselves. Like he was just one of those producers that I just never really got the hype over. Upon reflection perhaps I was being a little close minded…

GOLDHOUSE | OVER

You know what everyone needs to do when they have a break up? Write a god damn catchy electro-pop track. We al know that the best pop tracks are either written when your euphoric in love or soul crushed when it all falls apart so it just makes sense. I’m not sure what producer /…

FOX & FOWL | SPARK

Was it not just the other day that Brissie via Canberra group Fox & Fowl gave us the first new taste of their work with Steve Schram in the taste of the slightly broodish yet dance floor filling track “Eliza”? Well it was but you’re not going to be seeing me complain now that their…

OUR MAN IN BERLIN | SPIRIT DOWN

Our Man In Berlin are amongst some of my favourite bands that are currently reppin’ that sweet, sweet genre known as Indietronica. Premiering their new track “Spirit Down” last week and it gloriously keeps alive the indietronica feel from the groups previous releases.

HURTS | SOME KIND OF HEAVEN

UK duo HURTS for some unknown reason to me have never really been given much attention Australia. Why I have no idea they’re type of alternate pop/rock sounds like something that would be exactly up Australia’s alley. But no. I try to not dwell too much on the fact but I’m going to need some Australian’s…

STONEFOX | ARROW

Melbourne group StoneFox have created a sincere and reflective slice of ambient indie-pop music for us all to enjoy in the form of their new track “Arrow“. The guys created an underground sleeper hit last year with their track “All I Want” and this year they’re back with more chilled out vibes having worked with Simon Moro…

I KNOW LEOPARD | CLOSE MY EYES

Well summer might be over but that hasn’t stopped Sydney pop quarter I Know Leopard from brining out a chilled out summer feeling love child of a track. “Close My Eyes” the quartets latest cut from forthcoming EP Illumina is a track which transports me back to the simple times of being a kid exploring the…

MIKE WATERS | LIFE EP

It took 10 years working in the corporate world as a web developer for him to realise that it wasn’t his passion. 10 years he kept his passion under wraps writing songs in his bedroom, and not just any old plane songs, great songs! 10 years for him to hone his passion and then finally…
