Wolfjay - She Calls To Me     Pop 08/06/2018
Wolfjay makes bright pop music full of hope that reminds you that everything will be ok.
She Calls To Me is a beautifully warm pop track about letting go, moving on, and focusing on what matters most. Painfully honest lyrics laid over super dreamy production - it sounds like New Order, The Postal Service, and LCD Soundsystem all caught up and a great time.

Wither - Use Me     Metal/Punk, Hardcore 19/07/2019
Melbourne hardcore super group formed with David De La Hoz (Belle Haven), Jamie Marinos, Luke Weber (Dream On Dreamer), Liam Fowler (Pridelands) and Jeremy Hughes.
Vocalist David De La Hoz says of the single "The longer your life is, the more people come and go from it. Some relationships we build are positively impactful, some are not. But then there are also relationships that, as they develop, feel as if they’re positively impactful but the relationship is merely a façade used to conceal an agenda."

Tobacco Rat - Charred Remains ft. Bryte     Hip Hop, Electronic, Dubstep, Australian Indigenous 23/07/2019
Tobacco Rat, a.k.a. Jake Steele, has established himself as one of the most unique and distinct voices in the underground Australian electronic music scene.
Charred Remains (ft. Bryte) fuses the aggressive old-school rap stylings of lyricist Bryte and the crushing synth-noise sounds of Perth’s favourite rodent/producer in a rapid take-no-prisoners assault. Bryte’s Rakim-esque verse flexes on the ferocity of Hip Hop lyrical form, focusing on the relationship between an artist and the inherent competitive spirit

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.
