It’s another week of freshly weaned music this week, with a good 250 cuts of music to sift through, 3 out of 5 Australian cuts caught our ears. Gold Member will no doubt gain their momentum for greater things in 2017 and Curbside Drive deliver a classic pop-punk gem. Sydney’s Das Sonnenkind cleanses the mind with his layered electronic landscape. A great week of fresh undiscovered music, enjoy.
Artist: Gold Member
Cut: Waiting For You
Cut From: Sydney, AUS
Flavours Of: Bob Moses, The Beautiful Girls
Sydney duo Gold member returns with the dreamy summer tune that is both melodic, rhythmic and inexplicably cool. The song may be stripped back and a little raw but it’s full of emotion and charm.
Artist: Curbside Drive
Cut From: Perth, Australia
Flavours Of: Blink 182, Bleeding Knees Club
This pragmatic punk rock number has nostalgia levels so high you’ll be wishing you were 16 again. The perfect mix of pop punk with an emo tinge is the perfect ode to why you should never let your music taste grow up!
Cut From: Queens, New York City
Flavours Of: Kendrick Lamar
The breathy voice of New York wordsmith Bas is a remarkable instrument: indelibly evanescent, fragile yet powerful across this entire track. With a taste for mellow beats, his songs are intricate waves that will have you hooked.
Artist: Go Fever
Cut: United States of Mind
Cut From: Austin, Texas
Flavours Of: Middle Kids, HINDS
Austin’s Go Fever formed in 2016 behind singer Acey Monaro and have the chops to go along with her pipes. Ahead of their new album, the band is sharing the latest single of that album for “United States of My Mind.” The soaring pop-twinged that oozes synths and good vibes pales in comparison to the darker lyrics.
Artist: Das Sonnenkind
Cut: Lost In Sound
Cut From: Sydney, Australia
Flavours Of: Jamie XX, Tycho
The title of this song speaks for itself. You are lost in an array of sounds swept up in a wistful focus. The whole thing is filtered and submerged, the combination of soothing beats and layered samples is as inventive as this genre can be.
