Find Aphir at the forefront of interesting, nuanced music coming out of Australia as an artist but also as the studio engineer behind some seriously good records. It's theatrical and dramatic and fans of Twigs will find something bendy and atmospheric to their liking.

In love with this song. Chloe's voice is truly perfect and those perfect melodie la-da-da-das sound as much like a Summer afternoon as anything possibly could. Keen to hear more from Citrus Daze.

Hardwoods floors but with some floral touches. Firm and fresh in equal parts, this one.

Some records are made for heaving clubs and this... isn't one of them. This is begging for an arena, something with the capacity to capture these bigs beds of synth.

I've talked about Doolie as a proponent of Australia's nu-pop movement but with songs like these, she's at the forefront of the vanguard, leading the pack with sword raised and draped in warpaint. Un-eff-with-able.

You're ordering pizza in on a Saturday night and somehow, your card wasn't charged for the purchase. Same energy as this song.

Classic songwriting that lends itself nicely to this slow moving pop-rock effort. Grey's Anatomy soundtrack is begging for this.

Taka's production is stunning on this one and if I were a young rapper looking for someone to elevate my records from a 6 to a 10, I'd be in his inbox in a heartbeat. Yergurl showing a side we haven't heard before and Yaw putting it down effortlessly here too.

This hits harder than a Sam Groth first serve and with nearly as much finesse. Misery Signals were a band I grew up loving for their capacity to deliver on merciless vocals but brighten with colourful guitars and Harroway have something of that polarity.

A big, dark, cataclysmic journey travelled at a sprint through the midnight hour. Very chunky sound design on this warehouse experimentation.

Don't even act like this scuzzy lo-fi blaster hasn't got your legs bouncing. Filtered through the same microwave that shogun and mikey young use to record their records, it's all rippling energy rather than polished perfection.

Damn Hamish, this is sounding emphatic, expensive and expansive. Sounds like you've roped in a pro level producer but it turns out that the producer is... you. Imagine being produced with these software skills and the voice to match. IMAGINE.

Rennan has been gridining for a minute and it's rad to hear the progress he's been making. Very wise choice roping in a talent like Ms. Thandi on this one too!
