Evan Lock - Scorpio     Folk, Easy Listening, Alternative Country 17/04/2019
Sydney guitarist/singer-songwriter Evan Lock shares the first single ‘Scorpio’, from his newly announced debut album Kaleidoscopic, due for release on Friday 24 May via Broken Stone Records/Remote Control Records.
‘Scorpio’ is a call to arms for the disconnected. The realisation of a life’s ambition, Kaleidoscopic explores themes of love lost, identity dislocated, and solidarity expressed most acutely in the chorus of ‘Scorpio’, with its earnest invitation to the brokenhearted reminding us that "the lonely boys are here".

Courtney Barnett - Everybody Here Hates You     Rock, Alternative Country, Folk 11/04/2019
Courtney Barnett releases brand new single 'Everybody Here Hates You', out now via Milk! Records/Remote Control. It will also be released as an exclusive Record Store Day 12 inch.
'Everybody Here Hates You' features one of the most anthemic sing-along choruses Barnett has ever conjured, with a lead vocal that brings new strength and range to her unmistakable voice. The single is the superb final instalment from the creative period of Barnett's life which gave birth to her acclaimed and adored sophomore album Tell Me How You Really Feel.

Jess Ribeiro - Dylan     Rock, Pop 11/04/2019
Jess Ribeiro shares third single ‘Dylan’, from her highly anticipated new album LOVE HATE, released Friday 12 April via Barely Dressed/Remote Control Records.
Ribeiro explains the hypnotic new track “Dylan is about disorder. Change. Being in limbo, in-between your old life and the new one.” It once again shows just how masterful Ribeiro is as a performer and writer; it’s almost unfair that a song as unassuming as ‘Dylan’ can get under your skin the way it does.

Gena Rose Bruce - Angel Face     Rock, Pop, Alternative Country 09/04/2019
Gena Rose Bruce releases new single 'Angel Face', premiered via Pilerats, from her forthcoming debut album Can't Make You Love Me, released Friday 28th June through Dot Dash/Remote Control Records.
On 'Angel Face' Bruce describes "anger at the sense of entitlement this person had, who always got his way. Sadness at the loss or inability to have a connection, and jealousy that this person had moved on; but at the same time, there’s the not wanting a connection or relationship with that person. It’s about that place in the middle."

Premiered via Triple R Breakfasters and the Geoffrey O'Connor directed video clip by The Music - Art of Fighting share new single 'Your Love', out now via Remote Control Records.

How that makes all the other genuinely terrifying things in both the internal and external world seem completely insignificant.”

Methyl Ethel - Ruiner     Pop, Rock, Psychedelic 20/03/2019
Pscyhe-pop band Methyl Ethel play huge national tour in support of their new record. Triage is out now via Dot Dash/Remote Control and marks the Perth artist's third album.
This delicate balance of internal revelations played off against calculated ambiguity, has struck a nerve as Jake’s lyrics are sung back at him by audiences around the globe. They're precise enough to be authentic, and hazy enough to be anyone's, a universality that's echoed when Jake touches on the themes of Triage. "Its about people, love and relationships. Isn't everything?"

Denise le Menice - Stars     Pop, Rock, Retro 14/03/2019
Premiered on triple j's Home & Hosed, ’Stars’ is the scorching new single from Melbourne-via-Sydney-via-Perth based ratbag Denise Le Menice (AKA Ali Flintoff), out now via Barely Dressed Records/Remote Control.
The single stays true to Ali’s self-described pop/shoegaze style (Kylie meets Dandy Warhols) but takes flight thanks to her blistering lead guitar and the dreamiest and poppiest of all dream-pop melodies.

Ali describes ‘Stars’ as a song which encapsulates that feeling of finally feeling happy again – after having been in a period of total darkness.

Jess Ribeiro releases 'Chair Stare’, the third single from her highly anticipated newly announced album LOVE HATE out Friday April 12 via Barely Dressed/Remote Control Records.
Premiered via Double J and accompanying video premiered via Pilerats, brand-new track ‘Chair Stare’ exemplifies one of the reasons Jess Ribeiro is such a compelling and extraordinary songwriter – packed full of double and triple entendre, the protagonist addresses a wooden chair assigning it personality, agency and sexuality. Or maybe not.

The song also highlights the sound of the Cab moving back towards tighter, more concise songwriting and live instruments after the last few mostly electronic recordings.

Taking its name from Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the track '2001' also references science fiction writer Jack Vance and John Carpenter's film The Thing (1982).

Opening with a legato wash of dreamy choral harmonies before a beat drops and we find ourselves transported to a world of flawless RnB.

It’s about dread, loneliness, and how we shift and adjust to our social landscapes after the end of a relationship.”

‘Talking Distance’, premiered on Triple R and Pilerats, builds on a repeating distorted guitar pattern, a hypnotic rhythm section doing the heavy lifting while Sowersby’s vocals float over the top. The song details the feeling of coasting on auto-pilot, attempting to remain immune and keep one’s head above water in a flood of information and opinion.

Huntly - Low Grade Buzz     Pop, Electronic, Dance 30/01/2019
Huntly release new single ‘Low Grade Buzz’ from upcoming debut album of the same name, released 15 March via Barely Dressed Records/Remote Control.
‘Low Grade Buzz’ is an ethereal ballad that communicates life’s bittersweet ache, a blissful comedown after a euphoric night. Written in Tempelhof airfield in Berlin after a night out, accompanied by a dinky Yamaha keyboard, bought from an op shop and carried around Europe. It’s about fullness and emptiness and being a bit strung out after staying up all night.

Jess Ribeiro - Stranger     Rock 25/01/2019
Jess Ribeiro releases brand new single ‘Stranger’ premiered via Double J, out now via Barely Dressed/Remote Control Records.
In ‘Stranger’, Ribeiro’s voice travels as a narcotic purr; as she explores infatuation and all the daydreaming that comes alongside it. Referencing the 19th-century French writer Stendhal and his recognition that “this is a love that lives only through the imagination”. The new track was produced by Ben Edwards and recorded as a 3-piece with Dave Mudie and Jade Imagine.

Jess Ribeiro - Love Is The Score Of Nothing     Rock 29/11/2018
Premiered on Double J's Mornings with Zan, Jess Ribeiro has released her new single ‘Love Is The Score Of Nothing’, out now via Barely Dressed/Remote Control Records.
The new single is something of an indie-rock banger, signalling a new sound for an artist whose previous albums explored a kind of intricate folk-noire. This time round Ribeiro recalls the nonchalant coolness of the great French female vocalists of the 1960’s. Her vocal performance is detached while a delightful jangle of guitars, drums, keys and percussion swirls happily underneath.

Banoffee - Bubble     Pop, Electronic 17/11/2018
Melbourne-born, LA-based multidisciplinary artist Banoffee releases new single ‘Bubble’ out now via Dot Dash/Remote Control.
Banoffee explains "‘Bubble’ is my combat to bullies. It’s for the underdogs when they lose sight of their power. Being different, being unheard or unseen is so dispiriting. I hope in those moments something like this song is a little pick me up. There’s power in difference. Don’t mistake vulnerability as weakness. What a typical doozy we all make..."
