Your Girl Pho - I Can't Take It     Funk/Soul, Pop, RnB, Electronic 10/08/2018

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.

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."

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.
