LANKS vocal floats wonderfully across this moody sea of folktronica.

Convincing stuff. Even that stretching of the word January to make the rhyme work. I can see the comparisons people have and will make, but for me it has a little of the noughties spirit of early Bloc Party.

Impressed with the boldness of this, and how easily it shifts from panoramas to close ups.

The guys from PNAU have been helping out this promising Tassie duo. The collaboration has proved pretty fruitful already. You’ll hear it in the chanty-go-bang chorus here.

A few cues from BROCKHAMPTON for sure, but the wordplay, that beat and the smoky as hell chorus all spell FUNTIMES for me as well.

Been following this guy for 5+ years or so. So just dropping a review here to mainly steer you towards his new album - a double album in fact. But the 2nd half of it has just come out. Spirits Pt. 2. Some great stuff on there, including this slow burner. He’s been working with Andrei Eremin. The detail and feel to it all will hook you in.

As they love to say in hip-hop, how low can you go? You're continuing to blow minds. And speakers.

Like Bishop Briggs at her strongest, this channels plenty of bluesy power.

Great call working with Kim Moyes. This rolls like some of Ladytron's best stuff.

One of your strongest tracks so far I reckon. Sublime and super soulful chorus. Love A.GIRL's contribution.

Instrumentally, sounds like a freaking toy store gone nuts. It shouldn't work, but it does.

Feeding from the same trough as King Gizz and The Babe Rainbow, this track is simply a magic mushroom spinning top.

Was a fan of Pursuit. But an even bigger fan of this. That early noughties electroclash vocal totally works here.

I know you’re coming from a slightly different place, but I’m getting Nico vibes from this one. These Days. A song Jackson Browne wrote for her. But truth be told, you’ve probably got a better set of pipes.

Nicely produced by Xavier Dunn, it's got a clock like rhythm that spells hypnotic from the start. The restraint in the vocal is pretty special too.
