Blue Child Collective - Dive     Blues/Roots, World, Folk 02/08/2018
A Fluid Groove collaboration born from the West Australian coastline, Blue Child Collective's easy-flowing, conscious song craft "evokes the gentle rhythms and roaring freedom of Australia’s seaside" (Happy Mag).
Inspired by apnea and nautical freefall, 'Dive' is a rolling harmonic journey into the depths of the sea and self. Have you ever wondered how it feels to be 20m underwater on the ocean floor? A gateway to focus and peace, freediving is a meditation and BCC's latest will carry you right along with them to that place too.

Partnering with White Ribbon to help raise awareness for and put an end to domestic violence, Your Love My Love touches on these themes, wrapping up powerful lyrics in equally incendiary music... a barrage of heavy guitars, thundering drums and towering vocal melodies.

Unlucky - Replay Rewind     Rock, Hip Hop, Metal 02/08/2018
Unlucky are an explosive Melbourne three-piece formed out of reaction to the growing insidiousness of world events; much needed musical voice of dissent in an age of absolute corruption.
Politically charged, socially aware, searing and catchy; 'Replay Rewind' is a mind-expanding introduction to a band that is part punk rock insurrection, part hip hop wisdom, weaving relentless grooves and Herculean riffs into an epic journey of intelligent musical changes and starkly honest lyrics.

Almond Soy - Silhouette     Pop, Rock 25/07/2018
Starting out as a bedroom project, Almond Soy have developed at an unbelievable pace. Lead by brothers Brandon and James Stockbridge, the band has evolved into a six piece ensemble.
Showing no signs of slowing down this year, Perth’s Almond Soy have unveiled their energetic new single Silhouette. The infectious track shows off the multi-dimensional talent of the band with its beat-driven dance floor vibes and 80’s inspired sonic grandeur, while lyrically exploring the notion of teenage love and modern themes of lust and loss.

Foreign Architects - High Street     Rock, Pop 25/07/2018
For fans of hook-laden specialists like The Jungle Giants and Methyl Ethel, Foreign Architects are staking their claim as one of Perth’s most promising indie-rock exports.
“I wrote this song in London last year, I was perpetually confused about how there could be so many streets called ‘High Street’ before I realised locals called every main street the ‘high street’. The song uses the term as a metaphor for a place where you feel happy and how sometimes a certain person can drive you straight there."

The Peppermint Club - All Together, On The Sun     Pop, Psychedelic, Rock 25/07/2018
Formed by Chris Chen, The Peppermint Club has evolved from an aspiring studio project into a stunning band, threading lush, airy vocals through a textured fabric of ethereal, neo-psychedelic rock.

Dave Power - I Don't Care You're Gone     Blues/Roots, Country, Rock 10/07/2018
A seasoned performer, Dave Power has been releasing world class country/blues for nearly a decade, and his dedication to the craft shows in the perfection of his delivery.
"The song looks at the heartbreak warfare that keeps you balanced on that fence after a breakup - on one hand, you put on a brave face and you're glad you're rid of the girl, after all, she made a mockery of you, but on the other you're desperately wishing you had her back...she somehow holds that power over you."

Dane Overton and The Joy Williams Band - Bones     Blues/Roots, Rock 04/07/2018

From the solid, distorted opening baseline, the intentions of Dane Overton and the Joy Williams Band are immediately clear...this is raw, dirty blues coming straight from the heart.

Legs Electric summon the spirit of the golden days of heavy rock – overcharging '70s blues-based riffs with a full-power vocal attack and a live show worthy of Sunset Strip.

Dear Willow - HOLD     Rock, Folk 29/05/2018
Dear Willow is the creative voice of Sunshine Coast based artist Em-J Dau, transforming from poet to a solo acoustic act and now embracing her sound through a full band.

Laurie Luke - Rainbow Bomb     Rock 29/05/2018
Growing up on a healthy diet of Hendrix, Beatles and 90's alternative, songwriter and producer Laurie Luke has rolled his influences into a dynamic brand of Aussie rock.
“My son did a painting, different colours from the middle out to the end of the page. He said it was called ‘Rainbow Bomb’. I was like, ‘aww, you’re a genius’ (lol). So I wrote it into a piece of music I already had bubbling and the lyrics are stream-of-consciousness."

Foxton Kings - Money, Money     Rock 26/05/2018
Perth's Foxton Kings write the kind of riffs that kick you in the face. And, while you're recovering, they hit you with barrage after barrage of searing vocal hooks.
Opening with a salacious groove before kicking into savage riffery, Money, Money is both rock'n'roll and a personal 'f**k you' to a shady character from the band's past. This added emotional realness is the tipping point of Money, Money, which is a more aggressive approach by the band overall.

Duncan Saige - Pumping Up My Life     Rock, Pop, Folk 22/05/2018
Stepping out from his role as frontman/guitarist with Perth indie-rockers Stillwater Giants, Henry Clarke's next chapter of Duncan Saige comes via his irresistible new single Pumping Up My Life.
Using audio he recorded from a petrol bowser to create the rhythm of the song, Pumping Up My Life carries an infectious melody enveloped in acoustic guitars. Lyrically the song comments on the over-induglence some people feel they need to fit into the modern, fast-paced world.

Nakatomi - Jaguar     Pop, Electronic, Dance 22/05/2018
Nakatomi’s approach to electronic music taps into the spirit of 80’s nu wave, 90’s grunge and some liberal helpings of modern electro pop with big production and melodic nostalgia.
Co-written by producer JP Fung and Mario Spate, Nakatomi's ‘Jaguar’ is a minimalistic anti-dance jungle pop tune with a chorus hook that stands amongst their strongest to date. Nakatomi secretly wishes the song was about Jaguar from Rick and Morty - may he one day find his daughter!

Foreign Architects - Saw Myself     Rock, Pop 12/05/2018
On their latest single Saw Myself, Perth four-piece Foreign Architects deliver weighty, contemplative lyrics on a joyride through gentle, uplifting melodies.
Saw Myself was written amidst pure tumultuousness - within the space of weeks, singer Matt Burke had lost a family member, wound up in a city gripped by terrorist attacks and faced a painful breakup. Born of the ashes of these events, Saw Myself is about reflection, honesty and perspective.

King of the Travellers - Come Out and Play     Rock, Cover Version 12/05/2018
Intertwining layers of Romani, Balkan and Celtic folk into a punk-fuelled tornado, King of the Travellers summon the musical ghosts of yore from every corner of the globe.
Novel, though still packing a punch, King of the Travellers beautifully transport the Come Out and Play's melodies back to their ancestral heritage and is perhaps the best display of their talent for mashing up different eras of music and giving it all an irresistible dive-bar swagger.

Sam Carmody - Sharks     Folk, Pop, Atmospheric 10/05/2018
Award winning author Sam Carmody has been active as a writer across various projects and recalls the experimental Antipodean pop of Nick Cave, The Go-Betweens and Crowded House.
Sam Carmody is pleased to share his evocative new single Sharks. A distinctly contemporary song about love circled by masculine darkness, buried histories, global conflict and a rising sea, it also serves as a taste of Sam's forthcoming EP due out mid-year.

Alex Arpino - I Remember You (Dancing with the Devil)     Rock, Pop 09/05/2018
