The Harpoons - Do You Want My Love?     Funk/Soul, Pop, RnB 28/07/2017
The Harpoons are a Melbourne 4-piece, breathing fresh new life into neon-soul, pop and RnB.

The Sand Dollars - Love Dust     Pop, Soul, RnB, Hip Hop 24/07/2017
Reminiscent of The Last of The Shadow Puppets via Mark Ronson, these lads nod their caps to the 60s reverb pop stars but dig deep into new soul and RnB.
Taking cues from Morcheeba, The Avalanches and even Sade you’re dropped deep into the ocean and led away by the call of sirens. True Live singer Ryan Ritchie brings his narration to the story and then you’re deep into the movie again, slowly.
