Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
Neon Tetra - River Of Love     Funk/Soul, Pop, Retro 13/07/2018
“Taking cues from the likes of New Order, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd and David Bowie, the result is a combination of psychedelic rock, pop and new wave.” - The Music
Contains Catchy Hooks and Solos. “Dan wrote a lot of tunes while listening to artists like Miles Davis, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes...the soul funk shines through with Josh’s gospel-like vocals lending them passionately to the feelings of the Motown era. The use of synth and strong grooves links the band’s more experimental beginnings with current pop tones of the music.”

Other tracks by Neon Tetra:  So Far From Me

The fiercely strong and flawlessly honest songwriting of Melbourne’s Mojo Juju, returns in the form of a brand new single and title track off her third studio album NATIVE TONGUE
Lead by a mesmerising beat (courtesy of Joelistics) and the haunting vocal work of the Pasefika Vitoria Choir, Juju treats these opening moments like a live exorcism; she takes a hand over either side of her chest and turns herself completely inside out, laying her innermost workings bare for all to see.
