Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
Candice Dianna - Fall In Love With Me     Funk/Soul, Acoustic, RnB, Pop 03/03/2018
Female pop/soul ballad songwriter, plays piano and sings power vocals with vocal acrobatics just to annoy people who can't do it with original storytelling songs.
This is a song that empathises with women who've become emotionally attached in a fling type relationship. It's the fear and anger of rejection while needing to be wanted. The Flavour is deep R&B early 2000s influence with fluffy harmonies like a red wine on a cold rainy night.

imbi the girl - acidic     Funk/Soul, Hip Hop 03/03/2018
If their impact this year is anything to go by, imbi the girl is sure to make a bigger splash in the industry in 2018 and beyond.
‘acidic’ is a bassy track, underpinned with steel drums and seamlessly borrowing trap elements. It’s obvious that the production itself serves to deliver Imbi’s lyrics; while being rich and complex it never overshadows them.

Neon Queen - Free My Mind     Funk/Soul, RnB 02/03/2018
Neon Queen are a four piece out of Melbourne who thrive on capturing the slick sounds of R&B and delivering it with infectious and melodic energy.
"Free My Mind" Is a dive into melodic and blissful R&B; tailor made for long summer afternoons and evenings, Kriss Lisati's vocals urge the listener to go exploring away from the 9-5 and immerse oneself in the luxuries that come with kicking back and letting the good vibes take control.

The Bamboos - Lit Up     Funk/Soul, Funk, RnB, Pop 02/03/2018

The Offtopics - Funky Grandma     Funk/Soul, Blues 01/03/2018
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.
Funky Grandma is a rollicking good time dance party/Attenborough-esque exploration of the biologically transformative power of funk. You too can get funked up along with the titular grandma, a postman, a sadhu and an op-shop. In this day and age you can have your funk and eat it too.

The CrashCats - Existential Blues     Funk/Soul, Soul, Retro 01/02/2018
Hailing from Brisbane’s fertile West End, The CrashCats’ sound is a collision of Soul, Doo Wop and Beatnik Noir coated with a film of Psych drenched Swamp slime. Yum.
Existential Blues is the lonesome feeling at 1am, listening to a freight train rumble through your sleeping town, writing to your muse to come back and keep you company - but all you have is a box of 33's and some bittersweet memories.

A funky-heartfelt tune delivering a touch of French-house and tasteful amount of nu-disco. Backed by a smooth bass line, retro synth and Nile Rodgers-esque guitar.
