First Beige - Details     Funk/Soul, Rock, Psychedelic 28/03/2019
Hailing from Brisbane, First Beige draws upon driving disco grooves, sweeping synths and irresistible vocal hooks to craft a full bodied sonic spectacular guaranteed to get any crowd grooving.
‘Details’ is about the importance of one’s perspective on their life, sometimes it can be easy to get caught up in thinking about your lifetime as a whole rather than a path. It’s about accepting that everyone’s going to have a different way they want to live their life so do what want to do and stand tall.

Bass Lemon - No Means No     Funk/Soul, Rock 23/03/2019
Bass Lemon are a young dynamic jazz/funk fusion group electrifying audiences with a powerful set of melancholic, hard hitting anthems of personal struggle, equality and political decay.
"No Means No" is definitely a song born out of anger. It’s an attack at the culture of sexual harassment and abuse that exists so prevalently in today’s society. This song is extremely important to me in that it creates a pathway to speak about this subject openly and make people aware of the pain it causes.

Ella Haber - Clay     Funk/Soul, Jazz, Soul 20/03/2019
At just 20 years old Ella Haber has received the Gilles Peterson and Worldwide FM nod of approval, pointing to big things ahead for the burgeoning soul singer/songwriter.
With soul that oozes body-moving rhythms, the single croons the toils of not giving in to a one-sided relationship through achingly real lyricism and rhymes that roll off the tongue. Pushing her vocals to the edge while bringing together harmonies over a percussive beat, the release is another heavenly cut that leaves the listener in awe of Haber’s undeniable talent.

Fulton Street - Told How to Walk     Funk/Soul 14/03/2019
Following the sold out release of their highly anticipated debut album ‘Problems & Pain’, Fulton Street has quickly established themselves as one of Australia’s most eminent soul acts.
Written after witnessing blatant and casual racism aimed at a young indigenous man attending a music festival, ‘Told How to Walk’ recognises the plight of the traditional owners of this land and the discrimination they still face in modern Australia. The song also acts as a plea for greater respect, leading towards unity between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians moving forward.

To record GIVE AND TAKE, Laura enlisted the talented saxophonist/composer/arranger Andrew Ball (Bullhorn, Nomika), her core band Aidan Arnold, Luke Patrick and Steve Fischer, alongside 18 backing vocalists, almost-strangers wrangled via a social media call-out.

Still riding the high from her debut album in 2018, 17-year old 'psych prodigy' Sasha McLeod of Sycco resurfaces with her audacious single, ’Tamed Grief’.
Tamed Grief is the concept that grief has a tendency to linger and never really go away. This envisions a dark gloomy and echoey track when 'Tamed Grief' actually offers a more contradictory, chaotic and audacious song with crazy synthesisers, harsh guitars and bold vocals.

"'[I wrote this] to challenge the problematic depictions of women in history and literature, [as] a tribute to the fierce women whose rebellion, fire and strength inspires me, especially my Tinā ole Tinā (Nana). [This is] an anthem for all women to abandon shame, reclaim and redefine the names they've been given; and be the authors of their own story"
