Sweet Whirl - Something I Do     Indie, Alternative, Folk 27/02/2020
Sweet Whirl is Melbourne artist Esther Edquist. She imbues bleak moments with space, mystery and romance. Sweet Whirl's debut album How Much Works will be released in late May 2020.
Something I Do is the first taste of How Much Works, and a languid lament. Esther says of the song, "To be honest I was inspired to write this song while I was seeing this total a-hole and felt like I had to carry the flame of my desire around with me all the time, lest it die."

Sweet Whirl - Ray C     Rock, Country, Folk 16/04/2019
Sweet Whirl is Melbourne downbeat doyenne Esther Edquist, who uses her bass guitar as a singularly expressive lead instrument, imbuing bleak moments with space, mystery and romance.
Ray C is an exquisitely bleary-eyed gem from Sweet Whirl's new EP Love Songs & Poetry. The dreamy, unhurried track has a gloriously languid twang that feels warm and comforting, softening the blow of Sweet Whirl’s bittersweet lyrical sentiment, tinged with regret and unrequited longing.

Sweet Whirl - Strange News     Rock, Country, Folk 14/03/2019
Smoky late night confessionals from new Melbourne songwriter Esther Edquist, backed by members of Total Control, Gregor and Laura Jean band.
"This song is about wooing, trying to woo, trying to hold onto a vibe as it slips through your fingers, out of your reach, coo-cooing it back to you, hanging for a kiss..." - Esther Edquist, Sweet Whirl

Esther imbues bleak moments with space, mystery and romance, casting a sharp eye over blurry situation, dissecting hazy mornings-after with wry resignation.

Honey 2 Honey - Tone Of Voice     World, Electronic, Dub, Downbeat 31/01/2019
Honey 2 Honey are a Canberra/Sydney dub R'n'B fourpiece. Originally a duo of Canberra's Rory Stenning and drummer Luke Keanan-Brown, the project now incorporates Sydney's Del Lumanta and Daryl Prondoso.
With Tone Of Voice, Honey 2 Honey configure elements of jazz, dub, krautrock, disco and R’n’B into irresistible offbeat, hypnotic pop.

Rory Stenning’s deep, lulling voice intones imagistic lyrics, conveying themes rather than stories. Arresting lead single Tone Of Voice says more about intimate relationships than most confessional songwriting, while obscuring personal detail.

The Goon Sax - Make Time 4 Love     Pop, Rock 03/08/2018
Brisbane nervy pop champions The Goon Sax deliver brilliantly human, brutally honest vignettes of adolescent angst.
The Goon Sax's Louis Forster: 'Make Time 4 Love is about learning to live with yourself and accepting that everyone's impulses seem irrational to someone else. It's about realising love is at odds with the rest of your life and admitting defeat. We were listening to ESG and Liquid Liquid around the time, so it ended up kind of dancy!'

Melbourne scratchy-pop favourites The Stevens return with their second album Good: packed with twists and hooks that merge lo-fi outsider songcraft with 70s prog wizardry and classic rock swagger.
Chancer is a super-catchy, fuzzy pop gem with a bittersweet sting. "The song flirts with optimism as it moves upward without ever reaching a landing, creating a tension that power-pop has always known to be true: Darkness is best served deceptively, through happy sounds and complicated sentiment."- Maria Sherman, NPR
