Unearthed artists I'm following:


Akala Newman is a Wiradjuri/ Gadigal woman who fuses her eclectic escapist sound with surreal dark pop, a splash of sexy and a hint of house. Her lyrics and voice of honey are effortlessly vulreble, and honestly real. They can Stab like a knife or melt you like fire. Influenced from her teenage years by the wake of JOY, Tove Lo, Fka Twigs, and Halsey, her music is flooded with melodic nostalgia, contrasted with electric cynicism. Akala released her first debut single in 2019, “Heart For Free”, followed by “Shine on Me” in 2020. She then produced, directed and choreographed her first Music Video in 2020, “Burnt For You”, with an all First- Nations cast, representing the Blak body as beautiful, powerful and resilient. In 2021, Akala released, “Spell on Me” ft. BLACX, as a sneak peak into her EP “Alinta”.
