Future Romance - Want-You     Indie, Rock, Pop 03/12/2019
Future Romance is a 4-piece Melbourne indie-rock outfit fronted by singer/songwriter Bec Birchall (Paper Planes/The Phantom Hitchhikers). ‘Want-You’ is the first single from their debut album coming in 2020.
A straight-shooting, up-tempo banger with 80s synth pop hooks, shredding guitar and a no-holds-barred view of modern romance. Described by frontwoman Bec Birchall as…’an honesty pill washed down with a healthy dose of pop’, Want-You is a paean to being a brave, unapologetically single woman in 2020.

Nothing Really is an introspective indie-rock band from the inner north suburbs of Melbourne.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Jack Newlyn (Paradise Club), new single Breathe is a song about creating a world of good in spite of the scary realities around us; a message that entwines itself around ethereal guitar lines and delicate intricacies, before colliding with a chorus of pounding drums and distortion.

Big Things To Come is about the increasingly competitive nature of social media.

Don West - Money     Indie, Rock 29/11/2019
The enigmatic Don West is an indie-rock musician hailing from Sydney Northern beaches. His debut single 'Money' sets his honeyed and rugged vocal against crunching guitar and nostalgic piano.
Outwardly innocent and endearing, ‘Money’ tells the tale of a quiet night that took a turn on account of profound escapism. It’s a song of prolonging the present to avoid the future and rationalising one’s decisions in the interest of pure unadulterated passion.

We can spend our whole lives being someone we aren't. We feel that our true-self is not good enough. We perform to please people.
