Melbourne bedroom perfectionist Bored Nothing dropped ‘We Lied’, the first taste of his next impending album, hopefully out sooner rather than later.
So Bored Nothing released a new track ‘We Lied’ about a month ago and we (somehow) missed it. So we shared it in case you missed it too, and because its awesome. Armed with a glorious intro, its just announces how good this track is going to be before it even takes off. I believe this is called foreshadowing. Nonetheless, the jangly guitars, high paced drums and dreamy vocals are once more one of the best combinations of sound I have heard this year. Bored Nothing…can make music.
Brisbane’s Torfason have dropped their debut tune ‘Feels Like Letting Go’ a funky nu-disco number that is dripping in swagger.
Torfason is the project of Robert Bullock and ex-Last Dinosaurs member Sam Gethin-Jones who has switched the jangly guitars for the synths with fantastic results. Bullock’s clear powerful vocals combine gloriously with the eclectic punchy mix of keys and guitars produced so suavely it leaves you craving more. If your ears could salivate, Torfason would have them doing so, ‘Feel Like Letting Go’ is top notch.
‘Rollin’ On’ is the latest offering of Eleanor Dunlop, showcasing her new sound after kicking the piano rock away for more surfy vibes.
There is nothing better than seeing an artist rework their sound and producing a result that graces the eardrums and rattles the mind. Eleanor Dunlop has done just that. Until now, I was never a huge fan, but the plucky upbeat surf rock vibes in ‘Rollin’ On’ have converted me. I think her vocals compliment the punchy electric chords perfectly and create a sound that is nigh on addictive. I can’t wait to see what else this lass has in store now.
Sydney’s The Preatures have gone from strength to strength, and their latest single ‘ordinary’ signals that they have no signs of stopping soon.
Off their debut full length record ‘Planet Blue Eyes’, ‘Ordinary’ showcases that Americana style of indie rock dripping in flawless guitar licks and punchy vocals that has caused the Preatures to rightfully blow up into one of Australia’s biggest bands right now. It also comes with a sweet tour diary inspired video which is well worth a look to appreciate the heights The Preatues have climbed. 2014 was apparently their dress rehearsal, 2015 is Game Time for The Preatures.
Eliza Hull is an Aussie Playlist favourite, and her latest release ‘Used To’ is a prime example of why we cannot get enough of her music.
‘Used To’ is an ethereal almost spooky listen, starting from soft stirring keys and gently building into a thick viscous mix of soaring vocals and haunting refrains. Featuring the likes of Texture Like the Sun, the boy/girl interplay is a real highlight, and much like previous projects with Hayden Calnin goes to show how well Hull’s vocal bounce of a male counterpart. I love the effective simplicity this track uses instrumentally, and the overall feeling of emotion it creates.
Essick is the bedroom duo of Freddy MacDougall and Ravi Das, and having been around the fringes for a while, finally announced themselves with the epic single ‘Yakuza’.
Essick has produced a couple of other solid tracks, but ‘Yakuza’ is a step up to the next level, with it just dropping this pulsing electronic beat that is nigh on irresistible. The freaking ridiculously fluid and catchy vocals of Freddy MacDougall (who just makes this track his own) have really highlighted the potential this twosome has, creating a textured listen that ebbs and flows perfectly. Lets hope these guys get out of the bedroom and on the road, because I definitely want to hear more of this.
