Charlie Collins - Please Let Me Go     Rock 28/05/2019
Growing up in Tamworth, Collins was raised on a record collection of storytelling, and from the young age was pushing her way on to the stage of the local pub.
“This is somewhat of a self-pity song,” Charlie Collins explains. “I was feeling sorry for myself when I wrote this, I just felt like I couldn’t win in a sense. I felt tired and didn’t feel I had the strength to keep going, constantly comparing myself to others around me and feeling like somewhere along the lines, I had failed.”

Claws & Organs - Wait For Me     Rock, Grunge, Punk 28/05/2019
Claws & Organs are a post punk band from Melbourne that writes dynamic songs, blending raw, visceral tones with more moody and melancholic sounds.
Wait For Me captures Claws & Organs at a lighter moment, with upbeat drums and bass carrying the song through. This is contrasted lyrically, in which the song deals with mortality and the realisation of life coming to an end.

Feelds - Glass Arms     Rock, Rock, Acoustic, Chill 28/05/2019
Feelds, the Melbourne-based project of James Seymour, has quickly grown into a fully-fledged outfit, defined by clever songwriting used to provoke a dynamic soundscape of honest storytelling
Since the release of 'Kill The Moon' in August, Feelds has created an evocative path towards his self-produced debut album, with the latest addition to the photo album being 'Glass Arms'.

Not one to tiptoe around a subject, Feelds uses 'Glass Arms' to discuss ideas of trusting others and taking caution in conforming to the usual paths in life

IV Dante - #800080     Rock, Pop 28/05/2019
Swirling in a loop where talent and ambition fuel one other, Melbourne's IV Dante culminate in a banquet of everything from grandiose '80s pop to polished modern indie.
Named after the hexadecimal code for a particularly vivid purple, #800080 further plays to IV Dante's love for the pseudonymic. Its lyrics are layered with ambiguity and hidden meaning, taking universal staples of love, heartbreak and redemption, and gifting them with depth and texture beyond their simple truths.

jade imagine - Big Old House     Rock, Pop, Garage, Easy Listening 28/05/2019

The distance could be literal kilometres between each other or just emotional distance.

John Kennedy’s new album celebrates a golden era of Australian independent music. Kennedy compiled a list of classic indie songs from The Go-Betweens, The Triffids, The Scientists and many more.

Other tracks by John Kennedy:  Lee Remick  -  St Kilda to Kings Cross

LETHAL - Fight For Your Freedom     Rock, Pop 26/05/2019
LETHAL talks directly to the teen in all of us - heartbreaking lyrics supported by infectious melodies that stay in your head long after the fade out.

Alternative rock band influenced by funk, punk and grunge bands from the '90s and '00s. Heavy rock anthems that convey a message of dissatisfaction with authority an alienation from society

Atom - Parasite     Rock, Punk, Pop 24/05/2019
Harry Howard (Crime & The City Solution, These Immortal Souls, Harry Howard & The NDE), Edwina Preston (The Moll Flanders Band, Harry Howard & The NDE) Ben Hepworth (Repairs, Eastlink).
Second single off 'In Every Dream Home' (June 21). 'Parasite' is a menacing piece of synth pop, somehow evoking the slippery sexiness of Ultra era Depeche Mode and the frantic insistence of Pel Mel. Edwina Preston’s vocals reach out through coils of insidious layered synths and toxic, exigent guitar like a hand thrust up in a dark churning sea.

Ben Camden - Hope Of Love     Rock, Folk, Pop 24/05/2019
Ben Camden is a singer/songwriter with a deep and powerful baritone. Mixing folk, blues, surf and pop into an acoustic and electric mashup, his sound is enigmatic as his image.
Hope Of Love is a raw and honest song about being in love with an idea, not a reality. The song is built around a strumming acoustic guitar, with drums gaining momentum and intensity throughout the whole track. Tied together with a unique and soulful baritone vocal and a moody electric guitar riff.
