Allysha Joy - Know Your Power     Funk/Soul, Soul, Jazz, RnB 10/08/2018
Allysha Joy, is a key member of Melbourne collective, 30/70. Recently signed to Gondwana Records, she's gearing up for the release of her debut album in late September.
Know Your Power is a call to us all to acknowledge our power and to encourage conversation, consent and consideration. I acknowledge that this song was written from the perspective of a white cisgendered female and that I am privileged and hold power in this way. I will always seek to use this to the advantage of all women.

Your Girl Pho - I Can't Take It     Funk/Soul, Pop, RnB, Electronic 10/08/2018
Phoebe Gunson aka Perth's beloved magnetic persona Your Girl Pho sets the mood with warm, technicolour jazz-pop. Her "soulful vocals" (NYLON) punctuate RnB, neo-soul and electro-pop with fizzing, elasticated energy.
Pho's "soulful vocals" (NYLON) morph into full-tilt snarl, ripping through "p-funk bass sizzle, Sade synth pads and a g-funk e.p. groove" (FBi Radio) with reckless abandon. A self-asserting release inspired by pent-up frustrations at not being taken seriously - even at her own gigs - 'I Can't Take It' is what you wish you said each time someone underestimated you.

Felivand - Same Old     Funk/Soul 03/08/2018
Felivand's style pairs dreamy bedroom-pop textures with sophisticated R&B/HipHop footnotes. Her vocals are vulnerable yet fierce, expressing her afflictions in a way that is both truthful and relatable.
The song is rife with sophistication and drifts languidly along a down tempo beat decorated with honeyed vocals. 'Same Old' moves with purpose and exemplifies an artist soulful and thoughtful beyond her years. Vulnerable yet fierce FELIVAND's songwriting is galvanised by her calculated confidence in production and composition, evidenced throughout her forthcoming EP, due out later this year.

Fulton Street - Check Yourself     Funk/Soul, Funk, Pop 01/08/2018
Fulton Street are an exhilarating 7-piece band making waves in Melbourne's rich soul music scene, combining classic elements of soul and R&B with magnetic energy to create an irresistible sound.
Written during the US elections, Check Yourself was sparked by the displacement and alienation of children in a world that so often rejects the need for change. This energetic song challenges everyone to check themselves and let go of their judgements for a better future, urging future generations to take pride, no matter what the colour of their skin.

The Offtopics - A Man Needs Cooling     Funk/Soul, Blues 27/07/2018
The Offtopics are an eight-piece originals band from Brunswick fronted by a funk dynamo. They're here to put the slapstick in soul and the scatological in Ska.
The track A Man Needs Cooling is what you would expect of The Offtopics – jam-packed with slinky guitar, fat horns, blokey backing vocals and ‘some nice vibraslap type percussion action’. The theme in the song itself embraces the slapstick soul that the band do so well.

Cookin' On 3 Burners - Warning featuring Kaiit     Funk/Soul, Jazz, RnB 20/07/2018
Cookin’ On 3 Burners are Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond Organ Trio – joining the dots between Deep Funk, Raw Soul, Organ Jazz & Boogaloo.

Kaiit is running things on this punchy, hard-hitting vocal banger.

Anabelle Kay - Nightmare Of A Dream     Funk/Soul, Classical, Blues, Alternative Country 19/07/2018
Cashion, Oklahoma (population 832) isn’t the first place you’d associate with the musical awakening of one of Australia’s rising stars. This folk ingénue had her musical seeds sown in Terrigal!
'Nightmare Of A Dream' was written partly about a US customs experience and partly about the subsequent break up of her long-distance relationship. It is a song about blinding love, and the state of denial that can result when things go sour. She pleads, seemingly to herself “You treat me badly, oh Lord knows you do."

Brendan Burgess - Happy Man     Funk/Soul, Rock 19/07/2018
Brendan Burgess sings blues/soul/rock with passion. He writes songs about what makes him happy - and what needs to change.
"Happy Man" is about the simple things in life that make us happy - love, friendship, surfing/nature, music, wine, barbies ... all the good things in life.

Parcels - Bemyself     Funk/Soul 19/07/2018
Berlin-based, Byron Bay bred five-piece band Parcels. They’ve emerged already as one of the most vibrant and vital new bands around with a truly global and musically-diverse audience.
‘Bemyself’ is the latest offering in an irresistible series of tracks to come from the Berlin-based Australian 5 piece. Picking up perfectly where last single ’Tieduprightnow’ left us, ‘Bemyself’ is an intriguingly sultry take on their signature modern disco, a slow-burning gem that feels destined to soundtrack the lazy days spent in the sun.

Regurgitator - Party Looks     Funk/Soul, Pop, Electronic 19/07/2018
Been around for a while, made a bunch of records and then some… continue to play havoc. New tunes headroxxing your way soon!
P. A. R. T. Y. Have you got the looks? Yeah we got the looks.

The song is essentially inspired by having a conversation on a dance floor with another person in a very loud environment and completely misinterpreting what the other person is saying.

Neon Tetra - River Of Love     Funk/Soul, Pop, Retro 13/07/2018
“Taking cues from the likes of New Order, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd and David Bowie, the result is a combination of psychedelic rock, pop and new wave.” - The Music
Contains Catchy Hooks and Solos. “Dan wrote a lot of tunes while listening to artists like Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes...the soul funk shines through with Josh’s gospel-like vocals lending them passionately to the feelings of the Motown era. The use of synth and strong grooves links the band’s more experimental beginnings with current pop tones of the music.”

Pickpocket - Slam (feat. Nils Landgren)     Funk/Soul, Jazz, Instrumental 09/07/2018
Pickpocket are a 9 piece Melbourne based instrumental outfit that aim to play groove based improvisational music with a focus on melody and compositions.
A hard hitting, 80s funk inspired track with slamming bass, fat horns, driving drums and a burning trombone solo. Think Prince meets Fred Wesley :)

Mojo Juju - Native Tongue     Funk/Soul, Pop 07/07/2018
The fiercely strong and flawlessly honest songwriting of Melbourne’s Mojo Juju, returns in the form of a brand new single and title track off her third studio album NATIVE TONGUE
Lead by a mesmerising beat (courtesy of Joelistics) and the haunting vocal work of the Pasefika Vitoria Choir, Juju treats these opening moments like a live exorcism; she takes a hand over either side of her chest and turns herself completely inside out, laying her innermost workings bare for all to see.

Demon Days - Disco Baby     Funk/Soul, Pop, Jazz, Electronic 06/07/2018
"Talk of the Perth music scene" Demon Days' forthcoming EP is produced by Grammy-nominated engineer Nick Herrera, injecting their peppy neo-soul with galactic, fizzing energy ahead of national tour.
"A free flowing wonderland adventure. Close your eyes so you can leave all your worries behind and bliss out with Demon Days." - Declan Byrne, triple j Home & Hosed

Pulling bright, shiny elements from 90s pop, 80s synth tones & 70s disco, 'Disco Baby' nearly fizzes over with mentos-in-coke energy, propelled by punchy phrases and adorned with wonky flair.

Cheap Fakes - Dust And Bones     Funk/Soul, African, Ska, Psychedelic 04/07/2018
Cheap Fakes magically weave seductive brass lines through intricate melodies and infectious grooves. Infused with elements of Ska, Funk and something that can only be described as late-night Cactus-Jazz.
The band heard a story about an ANZAC war grave site that was found. The stand out quote “it was right outside our window but if we’d never found it then their remains would be forgotten like dust & bones”. Layered and steeped in african afro beat styles. It’s one of the bands favourite tunes from the album.
