Hobsons Bay Coast Guard - Wannabe     Pop, Garage, Psychedelic 19/10/2018
Hobsons Bay Coast Guard are Catchy sun-drenched hooks, warped chords and trashy, manic drums are all smashed together into a coastal themed paint-your-own-adventure colouring book.
Recorded in their parents living room, the single itself is another mad experiment in genre from studio Hobsons. ‘Wannabe’ is short like a punk track, heavy like a garage track and even contains elements of pop behind its driving mad-cap rhythm guitar and incessant drums. ‘Wannabe’ slots neatly beside their previous releases while simultaneously standing out like a throbbing thumb.

Manorism - Letter On My Wall     Pop, Rock, Britpop, Electronic 19/10/2018
Manorism is a 4-piece dream-pop, passion project from south-east Melbourne. Their music is a nod to the post-punk sounds of the 80’s housed within a 2018 sonic palette.
Written a few years ago, just before summer the band drew a lot of inspiration from straight post-punk drum beats e.g. The Smiths and Joy Division. It's a love song, but at its heart, it's about a feeling of having a storm in your head.

This hypnotic love ballad is about falling in love with someone you have never met.

Oh Pep! - Hurt Nobody     Pop 19/10/2018
Melbourne duo Olivia Hally and Pepita Emmerichs explore the melody-rich expanse between indie pop and alt-folk in their upcoming second album, while coming of age and seeing the world.
"Hurt Nobody" is an atmospheric anthem that builds slowly, with stormy beats slowly gathering around harmonised, breathy vocals until it comes to a cacophonous end. Composed in the midst of a "bomb cyclone" storm, Olivia explains “There was this underlying eeriness that day. The energy was apocalyptic, because we were snowed in."

OSITA - Iridescent     Pop 19/10/2018
Solo synth pop singer/songwriter focused on bass, drum and vocals based in the Blue Mountains writing and recording all her own music.
The track was written after a bad breakup, triggered by seeing a cute guy on a cooking show. The song is about finding someone who lights up your whole life, and for me represents freedom and love. It's cute, gentle and was written to represent the lightness of your heart when you've had it broken, but it's starting to mend.

A growling, dominant love letter to all the outcasts and outsiders of the world, the song is a more personal offering than Hell In Every Religion.

Orlean - You're Not There     Pop, Ambience, Electronic 17/10/2018
An electronic duo of producer Terry Man and vocalist Bella Li - intensity and detachment; robotic but human; current yet nostalgic... Orlean marry polar opposites into sophisticated pop gems.
"You're Not There" bubbles to the surface with keys like rain-drops. The soft vocals are paired with drum production more commonly found in trap. Thematically, a lover tries to penetrate, or understand the black dog of depression their partner suffers from. They're not sad.. they're not feeling anything at all - all the harder to relate to.
