British India - I Thought We Knew Each Other     Rock, Pop 13/09/2016
Following its premiere on triple j, British India's new single ‘I Thought We Knew Each Other’, takes that moment and holds it up to the light.
Layered in a film of shimmering strings and guitars, and with an unrelenting break-beat to match, the hushed intensity of the song’s verses make way for the dizzying rush of a mile high chorus. Indeed, ‘I Thought We Knew Each Other’ sees the band’s effortless intensity honed razor sharp.

Dan Sultan - Magnetic     Rock, Soul, Pop 06/10/2016
Dan Sultan is a critically acclaimed indigenous Australian singer-songwriter from Melbourne.
A piano flutters, and a string section swells from the delicate melody. Then a choir of voices bursts forth: “God, help me!” So begins Dan Sultan’s new single, ‘Magnetic’. A fierce attack of soul-pop, as interested in delivering unfiltered emotion as it is a charging chorus.
