Wild Ones are a Portland five-piece that about to become your new favourite band. You might initially think that Parasthesia is your typical, forgettable indie band track, completed by soothing female vocals, but with it’s experimental electronic elements and catchy chorus, it’s anything but. Their album Mirror Touch will be released in October through Top Shelf records.
Former Crystal Castles‘ front woman, Alice Glass, is back with a new track after two years since her last release. Without Love comes with a little assistance from HEALTH‘s Jupiter Keyes and, in true Alice Glass style, features plenty of haunting vocals and chaotic electronica.
At the tender age of 17, Perth’s Arno Faraji is making music that sounds like a mellow house party. Part hip hop, part electronica, part DBZ references (shout out to Master Roshi), it’s easy to see how Faraji has earned a much coveted jjj Unearthed High finalist spot for 2017. If you’re still not sold…don’t worry, it’s free for download.
Canadian producer Tiga released his third track of the year on Friday. Tiga said of Woke;
“Woke is a song about freedom, specifically my freedom. About me, at the end of the earth, pushed towards a final act of emancipation: throwing my phone into the sea, and watching it sink. People may have a hard time empathizing with a successful DJ, or anyone who associates an annoying buzzword with anything approaching enlightenment. But I don’t think it’s that hard to relate to feeling like you’ve entered into a lopsided bargain with a magic box that is more or less designed to hack its way into your self-image.”
I think that actually a lot of us can empathise (or at least sympathise) with throwing our phones into the sea.
Dreamy vocals, juicy synth and a catchy bass line, Come Back To You is third track from Crooked Colour‘s debut LP Vera. Appropriately, the Vera tour kicks off tonight in Ballarat. Beware, tickets are selling out fast.
Polish producer Pham has released his EP Ugly and All My Time is the feature track, boasting downtempo electronica with cool vocals of Miami’s Austin Paul. In Pham’s own words, his sound is “making some kind of progress, it’s like Forest starting to run with his prosthetics and now he’s free without them”
