RVG - Christian Neurosurgeon     Punk, Rock, Alternative 27/03/2020
RVG are a four-piece rock band from Melbourne, fronted by songwriter-guitarist Romy Vager. Consistently packing out hometown venues and making a name overseas, RVG are not to be underestimated.
Christian Neurosurgeon is a very simple song about cognitive dissonance. I’d hate for it to be interpreted as some boring song bagging Christianity, it’s more about how we have to hold onto certain ideas to be able to survive, even if they’re not true.

Chitra - Tired Lies     Folk, Pop, Indie, Country 28/02/2020
At only 22, Melbourne's Chitra squeezes the juice out of folk, indie-rock and pop, turning it into a zesty new taste of woozy intimacy in her debut Self Titled EP.
This song is about battling with lies and truths and dealing with the frustration of not knowing what’s what. It expresses the feeling of wanting something that you can’t and shouldn’t have. One of those situations that don’t necessarily have a conclusion.

Other tracks by Chitra:  Hold Yourself  -  Weak
Chitra - Keep Up     Folk, Pop 25/02/2020
Drawing on elements of rock’n’roll, contemporary indie-rock and a hint of blues, Chitra’s music provides a rich platform for storytelling, an element of songwriting she is particularly passionate about.
For me Keep Up is a big frustrated sigh to shake it off. A song about an impossible love interest that makes you mad and does you wrong. It explores the resistance of letting it get the best of you or choosing to let it be. 

RVG - I Used to Love You     Rock, Punk 20/02/2020
RVG are a four-piece rock band from Melbourne, fronted by songwriter-guitarist Romy Vager. Consistently packing out hometown venues and making a name overseas, RVG are not to be underestimated.
A goodbye that’s devasting in its simplicity ‘I Used to Love You’ is a song about displacing yourself from something and not feeling guilty from that.

Chitra - Leaving     Alternative, Folk 30/01/2020
Drawing on elements of rock’n’roll, contemporary indie-rock and a hint of blues, Chitra’s music provides a rich platform for storytelling, an element of songwriting she is particularly passionate about.
Of the song, Chitra says: 'Leaving' is a song I wrote about someone wanting you only when you aren’t around. That confusion of wanting to stick it out but getting frustrated with the hot and cold headache. It’s a cheeky ode to leaving indecisive people to their own devices.

Elizabeth - parties (Alice Ivy remix)     Dance 22/01/2020
Elizabeth’s solo music is a full floral bloom of heartache and personal reaffirmation. Her voice shimmers, remaining light to the touch as it conveys a multitude of emotions.
This remix provides Parties a new veil of smoke and haze for the club environment. Elizabeth's cathartic and bittersweet imagery of crying in the club paired with the vibrant Day-Glo sounds of Alice Ivy make for a perfect combo – the club as both celebratory and melancholy. Alice Ivy's remix leaves a bruise where the original Parties left a wound.

Poppongene - Wet Towel     Pop, Alternative 13/11/2019
POPPONGENE is the alias of multidisciplinary Melbourne artist Sophie Treloar. Originally from Byron Bay, Treloar is now based in Melbourne and is spending her time bringing you devotional dream-pop.
Wet Towel describes the disconnect and parallel release at the end of a relationship. It’s a punchy and sparse song about the multitude of feelings loss brings. At its core, Wet Towel snapshots the frustration of not being able to help someone you love - and the bitter sweet realisation that you’re not responsible for anyone other than yourself.

Elizabeth - here     Pop 06/11/2019
Elizabeth’s solo music is a full floral bloom of heartache and personal reaffirmation. Her voice shimmers, remaining light to the touch as it conveys a multitude of emotions.
'here' is about hoping you are not the bad guy but suspecting you might be. It’s looking around at all the chaos you have caused and genuinely not understanding how it happened. It’s a pop anthem about being diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.

Other tracks by Elizabeth:  don't let my love (bring you down)  -  death toll
Elizabeth - meander     Pop 24/10/2019
Elizabeth’s solo music is a full floral bloom of heartache and personal reaffirmation. Her voice shimmers, remaining light to the touch as it conveys a multitude of emotions.
This song is about a distraction fling, taking a lover outside of your primary relationship and hoping it will solve all of your problems. The last lyrics of the song were written in a tiny piano room in the middle of Sydney CBD, sobbed out through gallons of frustration tears.

Good Morning - Best Supporting Actor     Alternative, Rock, Indie 04/10/2019
Good Morning are at once scrappy and melodic, cynical and silly, narrative and abstract: guitar music that’s distinctly contemporary and never self-serious.
“Best Supporting Actor” is a love song of space and support.

Other tracks by Good Morning:  But We're Not There Yet  -  Pat
Chitra - A Kind     Indie, Alternative 02/10/2019
Drawing on elements of rock’n’roll, contemporary indie-rock and a hint of blues, Chitra’s music provides a rich platform for storytelling, an element of songwriting she is particularly passionate about.
A Kind is a taciturn takedown of a would-be love interest. Chitra delivers this song with one eyebrow raised. It's a song of frustration whilst being a little bit sarcastic about it. To Chitra, it’s a song about standing up for yourself and realising your self worth. With rousing drums and twangy guitar, this is Chitra at her catchiest yet.

Elizabeth - beautiful baby     Pop 19/09/2019
Elizabeth’s solo music is a full floral bloom of heartache and personal reaffirmation. Her voice shimmers, remaining light to the touch as it conveys a multitude of emotions.
'beautiful baby' is about leaving the chaos of a relationship behind. it's about trying to understand how a love that was so beautiful could be a thing that ends. we took a lot of inspiration from the music of twin peaks for this song, hoping to re-imagine the magical spell of angelo badalamenti and julee cruise.

Good Morning - Garden     Indie, Alternative 29/08/2019
Good Morning are at once scrappy and melodic, cynical and silly, narrative and abstract: guitar music that’s distinctly contemporary and never self-serious.
“Garden” is upbeat, featuring breezy guitar and soft, nearly-plain-spoken vocals. The track considers the danger of being complacent, and rebukes the idea that if we wait, what we want will come.

Poppongene - Eternally Alone     Pop 15/08/2019
POPPONGENE is the alias of multidisciplinary Melbourne artist Sophie Treloar. Originally from Byron Bay, Treloar is now based in Melbourne and is spending her time bringing you devotional dream-pop.
Produced in collaboration with Tim Harvey (Real Feelings, Jade Imagine, Emma Louise), “Eternally Alone” is an upbeat ode to dating-complacence, dreaming of an effortless connection, all the while reasoning that alone isn't so bad. A humorous pop song about wanting warm connection without warped compromise. A daydream about a lovely shimmering romance that no one has time for.

Elizabeth - Parties     Pop 07/08/2019
Elizabeth’s solo music is a full floral bloom of heartache and personal reaffirmation. Her voice shimmers, remaining light to the touch as it conveys a multitude of emotions.
Parties is about the lack you feel when you lose someone close to you and try to fill the void with cocktails and strangers. It's about the surprising distance you can feel from someone even though you once loved them so hard. It's a heartbreak banger designed for sad girls and those who love them.

Peak Twins - KIN     Pop 10/07/2019
Peak Twins founding members Joel Carey and Liam Kenny formed Peak Twins in their share house in 2012, and have just announced their second album 'Beloved'.
This song is a nod to Ennio Morricone – it’s grand and it sets the scene. The call and response melodies really work in a different way to our other songs. It’s more of a composition than a song.

Other tracks by Peak Twins:  Like A Wave  -  Heaven Knows
RVG - Dying On The Vine     Rock 02/07/2019
RVG are a four-piece rock band from Melbourne, fronted by songwriter-guitarist Romy Vager. Consistently packing out hometown venues and making a name overseas, RVG are not to be underestimated.
RVG’s Romy Vager: "I’m a huge fan of this period of Cale’s music. It’s a strange balance of honest and grandiose pain, it’s like watching a car full of cocaine drive over a cliff. We played this song at our first gig and people have been bugging us to record it ever since so I’m glad that it’s finally around."

Peak Twins - Beloved     Pop 28/06/2019
Peak Twins founding members Joel Carey and Liam Kenny formed Peak Twins in their share house in 2012, and have just announced their second album 'Beloved'.
“Beloved” is a confessional, a kind of melancholic plea, its lush string arrangement mirroring the drama the song indulges. Lyrically, this album isn’t afraid to work with and against cliché, embracing a legacy of crooning and storytelling.

POPPONGENE - Not Wrong     Pop 28/06/2019
Poppongene is the alias of Melbourne multidisciplinary artist Sophie Treloar.
Produced in collaboration with Tim Harvey (Real Feelings, Jade Imagine, Emma Louise), “Not Wrong” is a glittering slow-burn, a song of initial infatuation, of the equal thrill and uncertainty of attraction. The song's video, directed by James Thomson, sees Treloar ride through rain-soaked streets and sit alone – but not lonely – in a smoky bar.

RVG return with the first taste of new music since their debut album. Have Supported Kurt Vile,Pond,Shame,Future Islands,Pete Doherty,US Girls. Upcoming tour of the US&Canada supporting Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever.
“Alexandra” was recorded at Head Gap studios with Victor Van Vugt (PJHarvey, Nick Cave & TheBadSeeds).Alexandra’s instrumental was recorded live to track, all instruments at once.

RomyVager describes “Alexandra” as a song which came together quickly, but which felt like it uncompromisingly needed to be recorded. The song is an allegory for the broader oppression marginalised people are subjected to.
