Little Quirks - Life Wouldn't Be     Folk, Folk 23/08/2019
They’ve got the hooks, the harmonies and the explosive live energy, but if there’s one thing Little Quirks are missing, it’s a good fake ID.
Comprised of sisters Abbey, Mia and cousin Jaymi the talented youthful sweet trio that make up Little Quirks, arrange music in a way that's so inviting its almost mesmerising, as their three part harmonies combine to create their own distinctive sound.

Now their new single “Life Wouldn’t Be”, brings some exhilarating pop and indie to their delicate folk side.

LÂLKA - Go Psycho     Electronic, Dance 22/08/2019
LÂLKA is the Brisbane-based producer/vocalist/musician creating gritty yet opulent electro pop.
This song is about taking ownership of my own body, and by extension, my own identity. It came from the experience I’ve had where my body and clothing choices became ammunition for the people seeking to suppress my ideas and self-expression.

Japanese Wallpaper - Imaginary Friends     Electronic, Pop 15/08/2019
Gab Strum aka Japanese Wallpaper debut full-length record, Glow will be available Friday 18 October via Wonderlick Recordings, followed by his biggest national tour to date in October and November.
Lead single 'Imaginary Friends,' explores the tender emotions of late teendom and early 20s turmoil. As he validates the mundane, no emotion is wasted. “None of the things are about massive changes or massive terrible things that happened, or big breakups,” he says. “It’s all songs about little things and it’s also fine to be affected by little things.”

Poppongene - Eternally Alone     Pop 15/08/2019
POPPONGENE is the alias of multidisciplinary Melbourne artist Sophie Treloar. Originally from Byron Bay, Treloar is now based in Melbourne and is spending her time bringing you devotional dream-pop.
Produced in collaboration with Tim Harvey (Real Feelings, Jade Imagine, Emma Louise), “Eternally Alone” is an upbeat ode to dating-complacence, dreaming of an effortless connection, all the while reasoning that alone isn't so bad. A humorous pop song about wanting warm connection without warped compromise. A daydream about a lovely shimmering romance that no one has time for.

The Gloom In The Corner - Misanthropic     Metal/Punk, Metal, Rap 15/08/2019
The Gloom In The Corner is a conceptual metalcore band where the narrative is as core to the band as the music itself.
'Misanthropic' is an introduction track to the main antagonist (Sherlock Bones) to The Gloom In The Corner's EP 'Flesh & Bones'. The chainsaw-like guitars, machine gun double kicks and obnoxious rapped/screamed lyrics sets the tone that this character is the embodiment of pure evil and narcissism.
