Prime Cuts this week comes courtesy of Sydney tastemaker Will, delivering 5 new cuts from some well-known faces. Lorde goes all melodic, Alt-J remind us of their obscure best, and we have shoe-gaze perfection from You’ll Never Get To Heaven and Sydney’s, Moody Beach.
Prime Cut: Green Light
Cut From: Auckland, New Zealand
Flavours Of: Foxes, Katy Perry (Dare we say it!)
‘Green Light’ feels like a natural progression for the young superstar known as Lorde. It’s a perfect combination of radio-friendly feel good melodies while she sings about pragmatic issues such as young relationships and living.
Prime Cut: 3WW
Cut From: Leeds, England
Flavours Of: The Beatles, Grizzly Bear
This is the first taste of Alt J’S hotly awaited third album. At five minutes long this track is full of the sound we know and love from the group plus a new-found sense of tranquility and a little cameo of a female voice.
Prime Cut: Never Let Me Go
Cut From: Oberon, Australia
Flavours Of: DMA’s, Ocean Colour Scene, The Charlatans
‘Never Let Me Go’ is delivered from Green Buzzard’s debut album Space Man Rodeo. This track sounds right at home with its punchy energy and angular guitars. They’ve really swooped on that ’70s-tinged Britpop shtick.
Prime Cut: Beyond The Clouds
Cut From: Canada
Flavours Of: Day Wave, Slowdive, I Break Horses
Canadian ambient-pop duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven have shared the third release ‘Beyond The Clouds’ from their upcoming album Image.The tranquil vibes create a song made for daydreaming.
Prime Cut: Vanilla
Cut From: Sydney, Australia
Flavours Of: College, Warpaint
Moody beach is a pretty fascinating character – writing songs, between cities while working as a flight attendant, and moved from Adelaide to Sydney a few years back to focus on music. This Haunting first single is a perfect first taste of her sound.
