MAYAH - Tied You Up     R&B, Hip Hop, Pop 13/12/2019
Raised on her older-sisters' record-collection in the rainforest-village of Kuranda, Queensland, the soundtrack to MAYAH’s childhood merged their love of Lauryn Hill, TLC with mum's favourites, Moby and Massive Attack.
The Cairns-born artist describes her new song as being about “tying up loose ends, be it relationships, friendships or situations. It comes from a place of self-assuredness and personal growth.”

Polish Club - Countdown     Rock, Alternative 13/12/2019
There are two of them. They are called Novak and John-Henry and are the loudest goddamn soul outfit you’ve ever heard. (And yes, they are both sort of Polish).
Not content with the traditional New Years Eve countdown, Sydney's most raucous duo have created their own. Aptly named 'Countdown', Polish Club's latest single is set to have you dancing into the new year (and maybe regretting that 3am kebab).

Fresh from winning the 2019 NIMA for Artist-Of-The-Year, Melbourne based hip hop artist Baker Boy rounds out his stellar year with the release of his new single ‘Meditjin’ featuring JessB.
Blazing a path rapping in his native language of Yolngu Matha as well as English, the Arnhem Land artist sings “Music is the Meditjin”, which means Medicine in his first language. Baker Boy says “Music is the best meditjin, it brings everyone together, makes you want to dance, love, laugh, vibe and I wrote Meditjin with just that in mind.

MAYAH emerges with her debut-single ‘Pray’. Working with Melbourne producer Rob Amoruso, ‘Pray’ is MAYAH’s first release through Island Records Australia. MAYAH shines a spotlight on the overwhelming influence social media has on our lives. "The song is about how we show curated snippets of our lives on social media but it's not the full side; it's the highlight reel."

The track which began at Jake’s home studio in Narrabeen on Sydney’s Northern Beaches was finished at Forbes Street Studios in Woolloomooloo.

NOT A BOYS NAME - Raise The Alarm     Indie, Alternative, Rock 25/10/2019
NOT A BOYS NAME is the project by Sydney multi-instrumentalist Dave Jenkins Jr.
The song is about finding the catalyst to shake you up and take you where you want to go. It’s so easy to get stuck in a complacent place, a burning room. It’s so easy to say, this is fine. This song is about learning to say it’s not.”

Experimenting with new styles and sonic palettes, the Byron Bay local teamed up with another local, Yorke, for this golden tune. The track was triggered by Yorke’s unique vocal tik of hiccupping, the indie-pop newcomer always thought it would be interesting to build it into a song but couldn’t find the right producer to do so.

Lakyn - Choir Boy     Alternative, Hip Hop, Pop, Indie 20/09/2019
Melbourne-based artist Lakyn returns with his new single 'Choir Boy'. Sonically and authentically, the single hears Lakyn reflect on his personal growth and writing / recording state of mind.
‘Choir Boy’ was written in a personal jam session with no real intention of releasing. What allowed the free-flowing emotions and rhythm to naturally articulate the direction, it was his close friends who encouraged to explore the song further. The single was worked on with Konstantin Kersting (Tones & I, Mallrat) from The Belligerents, who co-wrote and produced the track
