This is the perfect optimism potion and brightness and sunlight. Jesa brings joyful energy that is needed in life. You know, something that sparkles and shines. Yet, lying beneath the surface of the brightness of this tune are some poignant and great lyrics that say a lot more than you'd expect.

There is a gentle grace that Savanah Solomon brings to her music. It leans in equal measure in the darkness of alt-noir sounds and heartwarming storytelling place that country music sits.

Sean brings a gentle intensity that cracks your heart open with tiny moments of lyrical brilliance. The power of this tune is in its ability to be brilliant and humble at the same time.

Late to the party but also feeling great to be here finally. Luke Morris has a beautiful, beautiful mind and we're all the better for it.

This has got to be one of my favourite songs of all time. It's a brilliant masterpiece and such a mood. The bassline reminds me of Air with its creative and constantly grooving dark, mystical energy.

Galaxias is consistently great! I love the poetry of the lyrics which tie together this narrative that is profoundly raw capturing the essence of regrets and those that got away.

The multilayered vocals hit you with a stunning ethereal wave of beauty. Fradd sure knows how to pull at all the heartstrings. This tune is emotionally dense, and the narrative of Emma Frodd's lyrics are raw and powerful.

King River Rising stays true to rock-reggae coastal vibes with every track the has brought our way in 2020. This is no exception - another great one. Reminiscent of Cat Empire, if they took guitar solos. I love how their music makes you want to dance, dance and groove. Don't be surprised if you find your self making a 'this is a groove' kind of stank face in the breakdown, it...

If I could steal Joseph Vea's vocal ability, I would - without a second thought. I'd steal it and only communicate through song. If you're a fan of The Black Seeds or Troy Kingi or both this is your man.

The prowess that Fox brings to his work is compelling. There is a complexity to the dark soulful structures that Fox engineers seamlessly into his production and the playful lightness of the vocals gives this tunes that perfect touch of breath between drops.
