The Five Best Songs Of The Week!
With literally ~hundreds of thousands~ of independent Australian songs on triple j Unearthed, sometimes it can be hard to know where to start. That's why we have the Friday Five. These are the five songs uploaded this week that we think you need to hear right now.
Every week, Max Quinn and Dave Ruby Howe break 'em down for you on The Unearthed Podcast - who they are, what's cool about them and why they matter.
This week: we check in on Unearthed High and meet two teens making their way to the top. Plus, the great Bakers Eddy debate of 2019.
Adrian Eagle - Housing Trust
The beacon of hard-won positivity returns with 'Housing Trust', another winner. We love the Aussie Eagle.
Bakers Eddy - Can't Afford It
Brash suburban punk from Bakers Eddy. Huge chorus and a great melody.
George Alice - Circles
Natural instrumentation meets a little bit of an electronic vibe for this Unearthed High upload. For fans of Julia Jacklin, Maggie Rogers.
Nick Ward - Skin
Unearthed High guy Nick Ward has made a poignant piece of electronica that explores identity politics. It's rich and dense and sweet. Like a cake.
Shannen James - Something In The Water
Slick and immersive pop with a bit of country twang. Shannen's song shimmers.
