Tartie - Missing Hearts     Pop, Easy Listening 31/08/2018
Roaming the dimly lit laneways of Melbourne’s CBD, Tartie weaves her hauntingly beautiful tales of love and loss. Prepare for heart-melting vocals and minimalist alt pop production.
Missing Hearts was inspired by a male and female friendship that Tartie witnessed and their irritating inability to ever properly get together. After confiding in a close friend she stated, “it’s like your hearts keep missing each other’s paths.” These resonating words sparked the creative process and Missing Hearts was born in a whirlwind of emotion and cathartic self expression.

I loved to write stories as a child and thought I'd start writing fiction stories into songs, and creating the music around it to set the vibe and world around it.

Ultra Material - Rhodamine     Pop, Atmospheric, Garage 29/08/2018
Ultra Material consists of 2 couples, with elements of dream pop, shoegaze and indie rock all converge into something ineffably powerful, lovely and mysterious.
Rhodamine is a song with a catchy immediacy more associated with pop music than shoegaze. While the reverb-obscured lyrics may be difficult to sing along to, the prettily drawn out ‘ah-ah’s of the chorus ring true with a kind of restrained cry for help. Rhodamine is the feeling when you are with someone who outshines all others.

“Wishfulness is a song about being stuck in a rut, longing for something else. Something otherworldly. It's a different kind of song to come from me. The focus is the groove, song & vocal. I love the way it all comes together in the second chorus when the bass line and new drum pattern kicks in.” - Harts

Like burning cigarettes and neon lights, this after dark synthwave sensation combines introspective themes with lush electronic soundscapes.
'Remains' is my comeback single after a three year hiatus from releasing music. The storyline of the song dissects the idea that "distance makes the heart grow fonder" and explores how our romanticised idea of someone can easily be unravelled when change causes those happy feelings to turn into jealousy and bitterness.

Nat Vazer - Struggletown     Pop, Rock 27/08/2018
Melbourne-based artist Nat Vazer is a warm, charismatic, and contemplative songwriter with a knack for writing charmingly rebellious tunes about the ironies of everyday life.
Welcome to "Struggletown", the guitars are tropical, handclaps happy and ladies caress you with “oohs”. But the upbeat mood belies a darkness. Listen closer - the handclaps are fake, “the sun is always out, but everybody’s up and down”. It’s a place where people’s fear about feeling trapped in a nine-to-five is drowned out by rounds of long island iced-teas.

first single from the album, something quiet, sad, but optimistic to welcome people in, very different to other songs on the album mood wise, a bit more straight forward, good for listening alone, late at night
