Mel Blue - South     Funk/Soul, Britpop, Atmospheric 17/11/2018
Get yourself acquainted with Sydney's cruisey new super-group Mel Blue before they're whisked away by the momentum of their bopping tunes because their debut single South is a dang slapper.
South is about long distance relationships and how they seem to bring up the same conversations and arguments. Rather than allowing these conversations to consume the relationship, sometimes it’s best to just make the most of each other's company while it lasts.

Wanderers - What I Do     Funk/Soul, Rock 17/11/2018
Wanderers' have spent majority of 2018 touring nationally, gracing numerous festival stages including Bello Winter Music Fest and Gumball. This release sees them venture deeper into soulful sound.
Inspired mostly by late 70s soul and funk, What I Do started out simply as a looped groove that Dusty wrote to practice bass along to. About the realisation that you’ve been getting yourself together but not actually working on any of the things that you need to for the relationship to go the distance.

NO Straight LINE - Panorama     Funk/Soul, Instrumental, Jazz 27/10/2018
NO Straight LINE’S cornerstone is groove and originality. Their lyrics create an alternate world, with tinges of noir and veiled romanticism. The music glides easily through funk, jazz and R&B.
Basically a love song that views the redemptive nature of a strong relationship. The lyrics intertwine amorous and self-sacrificing feelings with nature's panorama. In the Sydney songwriter vein there is a reference to Sydney Harbour and a kookaburra. The music follows the uplifting theme of the lyrics. It is anthemic with an accessible hook.

Other tracks by NO Straight LINE:  Grey Rabbit  -  Two Tone Spice
