Like Bear - Drive     Pop, Electronic 26/07/2019
Over 7 years of peaking from around stage curtains, watching over artists with whom she had written and produced, for the first time ever, Like Bear is stepping out.
The brand new single respectfully encourages taking responsibility for yourself. Expressing self-love and independence, ‘Drive’ nurtures the fear of loneliness, and urges it’s listeners to recognise negative emotional reactions and self-doubt, and to take the wheel.

‘Drive’ represents a long process, and one that is ever-changing. "All you gotta do is drive..."

Melissa Ramsey - Halo     Pop 26/07/2019

Synth pop-rock band from Melbourne and Brisbane.

Willing - Hungry     Pop, Gay Alligned 25/07/2019
Willing is a beacon of pop ephemera. Willing brings electronic pop sensibilities and combines them with theatrical urgency, channeling Frank Ocean and Liza Minelli while staying authentic to themselves.
Willing are releasing their new single, Hungry, a horny trap-rock song about lusty nights at home alone. Mixed by rising star Luboku, 'Hungry' is a slow jam that will leave you ravenous for more. Willing’s sultry vocal and the throbbing 808s culminate in a guitar hero finale that is as nostalgic as a wet dream. Queer pop at it’s thirstiest.

‘Dallas’ is - by Brightness' description - “a song about being spiritually hungry…the volatility and fragility of being in that state.” Its slanting melody, baritone guitars and erratic squalls dunk you in this cloudy space for the bulk of its duration, then slowly lifts you out in its final phrases to the sound of rapturous falsetto and luminous French horn.
