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.
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.
Panama have re-emerged from the shadows, releasing their new slickly produced track ‘Stay Forever’.
‘Stay Forever’ is suave piece of summery disco that is a delight to fans of old and bound to earn them plenty of new followers. Its just another example of the polite infectious electro sound that Panama have become synonymous with, and quite clearly perfected. These guys are now a staple of the Future Classic stable, plying their trade so successfully that its not a surprise that they are selling out shows throughout the US and Europe. With the track available for free download, let hope an EP or album isnt far around the corner.
Unearthed High Winner Japanese Wallpaper has released his latest electronic gem called ‘Between Friends’.
Featuring the vocals of fellow break through artist, Jesse Davidson, ‘Between Friends’ is a suave jingly number that truly captures the attention, with its shimmering electronic musings a delight on the ears. Having won Unearthed High, and received boundless praise from notable identities such as Gotye, Chet Faker & Bombay Bicycle Club, you really wonder how big Japanese Wallpaper is going to go. Such a talent, ‘Between Friends’ is another track to entertain the ears and keep the hype building.
Eliza Hull has returned with ‘Caught’, the first taste of her impending album ‘Bones of Us’ due out early 2015.
Already hyped as one of the most anticipated local album releases of 2015, Eliza has given fans and converts good reason to be excited with ‘Caught’ hitting the ears in all the right ways. Her emotive and atmospheric vocals are nigh on prefect once more, but it is the way they mix with the trip hop beats that not only satisfies but blows the mind away. There is this effortlessness in the way this track comes together to form a hauntingly unique listen that really strikes a chord with the listener. With a whole album of tracks coming, ‘Caught’ should surely turn heads in anticipation.
