Tracks

Sort by: Date Artist
Eliza Hull - Without Words     Pop, Electronic 05/04/2012
Eliza Hull is a solo artist from Melbourne creating lullaby pop sounds with an electronic edge.
‘Without Words’ is the first single from Eliza Hull’s forthcoming EP, Dawn. With a delivery that mirrors the dizzying realities of love it details, ‘Without Words’ is a formidable introduction to EP's hypnotic aura.

‘Without Words’ is stark in its candour. Blending subtle electronic stylings and heartfelt lyricism.

The Messengers - We Can't Get Along     Pop, Rock, Retro, Garage 05/04/2012
Hailing from Melbourne, five-piece, The Messengers create garage dusted pop with a sly wink and nod to traditional blues and 60s swinging beats.
It seems wildly ironic and perhaps even a touch inappropriate that a song about wanting to do things that you know you shouldn’t is such an unashamedly addictive proposition. ‘We Can’t Get Along’, the latest single from Melbourne’s The Messengers, is a quick shot of contagious hooks and virulent tones.

Kate Vigo - Not The One     Pop, Retro 05/04/2012
Kate Vigo is a singer songwriter from Melbourne whose music spans multiple styles and genres whilst keeping a strong pop sensibility.
Whilst clearly touched by the light of a 60’s torch song, Kate Vigo’s latest single ‘Not The One’ has a clear contemporary edge. Featuring the musically adventurous spirit that quickly has become Vigo’s calling card, ‘Not The One’ is a blend of sweeping
strings and a Shangri-la’s back beat.

Jenna Murphy - Do You     Pop, Folk, Rock, Electronic 03/04/2012
Jenna Murphy is no ordinary singer song-writer. Her songs are full of stories, energy and celtic poetic romance. Her quirky melodies will be stuck in your head for days.
This song is about two people who have meet both with emotional baggage. One is willing to move on but the other sabotages his feelings with past regret. It is written essentially as an up-tempo pop song and I believe has a very catchy chorus, perfect for radio.

Other tracks by Jenna Murphy:  Start To Stop  -  Soulfood

2. Bizarre juxtaposition of sound to subject matter.
3. The echoing influences of Grace Jones and Edith Piaf.
5. Vibe of a band playing in a Young Ones episode.
