I was getting some serious Carly Rae vibes when I listened to this Beks track. Sure enough, I see she's listed as one of her influences! This is a very dance-able pop song too!

This is definitely a song for the times, especially if you lived through the 2020 Melbourne lockdown. One can't help but be comforted by the dulcet tones here...

Smooth and crisp production from Last Thursday here. So many simple elements coming together here to make something greater than the sum of its parts.

There's something about Daniel's vocals that is infectious. Upon first listen I have to say his confidence shines through his voice. I will say that I was left wanting more from the overall production. That's not necessarily a bad thing because there's so much potential here!

This is quite dark and while this sort of rock isn't usually my cup of tea I really like the production. Nice build up.

This is such a fun track from 4CHERUB. Love the video-game style synths in the background there. And vocals from Flossy Chops are ace too!

Really solid debut release from this Brissy band. I can imagine you would slay this in your live performances. I have to admit I'm not usually one for psychedelic rock but that guitar solo made me want you turn it up to 10!

This track from Holliday Howe is currently on high rotation for me, so I thought I should come back and write a review. Reminds me of a mix of Halsey-like vocals with Charli XCX production and I am so here for this!

The guitar is just so pleasant on this track. It's a great composition altogether. Now I'm really interested to hear some vocals in future.

So much talent here! Guitars are fantastic and Lily's vocals are very impressive. I feel like you could go to the next level if in future you give both the guitar solos and the vocals more of their own time to shine.
