🔊 TRACKS

There’s so much incredible new music every week by emerging, DIY, and independent artists in Australia, but these are my favourite five releases from each week.

Latest Week

Ceres – Want/Need

Ceres – Want/Need

“Back with new music after five years, Ceres bring us both what we wanted and what we needed from them, a blast of joyous music-making, ringing and soaring. You get the impression it was just what they needed too. A happy return, warmly delivered and even more warmly received 😍”
Amyl and The Sniffers – U Should Not Be Doing That

Amyl and The Sniffers – U Should Not Be Doing That

“While it’s both a snappy, barking little ratbag of a song and a gleeful bit of snark delivered to the small-minded from a position of complete superiority, it’s also a reminder. No matter who you are, no matter how well you do, there’s always *some* asshat out there whose pathetic actions can still sting. Don’t be that asshat 🤠”
Ferny Fairway – State of Mine

Ferny Fairway – State of Mine

“While nodding to both shoegaze and grunge, Ferny Fairway inject copious lashings of pace and melody into this fuzzy concoction. As much sharp song as rough-edged distortion and rattle, it’s a quick jab of deliciously noisy fun 💉”
Grevillea – Remember

Grevillea – Remember

“This is confident stuff from Grevillea, polished songwriting mixed in with shiny guitars and strutting rhythms. Immediate, catchy and wildly grin-inducing, it’s got so much bounce you’ll need to be peeled off the ceiling 🎸”
CLAMM – Change Enough

CLAMM – Change Enough

“Relentless from the off, this insistent, shouty gem is armed with both bite and bark. No, it’s not subtle – but some things just require top volume to be properly heard. Turn it up 🔊”

Previous Week

Phoebe Go – Good Fight

Phoebe Go – Good Fight

“Like every other track on the perfect album this track is a part of, I could write a thousand words about every word, a thousand phrases about every phrase. I could sing songs *about* these songs, write verse after verse about these verses. That I can’t even come close to doing any of it justice makes me want to weep with joy. Flawless 🥲”
Chanel Loren – Ring Ring

Chanel Loren – Ring Ring

“A tiny little beast of a track, barely over two minutes long, but filled with tricksy basslines and complex rhythms. It’s all woven through with a sharp, intelligent vocal brimming with confidence, a track that lands with just the amount of power it needs, but doesn’t waste a single breath more 😮‍💨”
Daphnie – Minimalism

Daphnie – Minimalism

“Absolutely burning from the off, this glorious engine of shiny-but-wonky pop hums at full power, its parts all glowing red and making a wonderful bloody racket. Highly strung but finely tuned ⚙️”
Lady Lazarus – Blondes

Lady Lazarus – Blondes

“Like a bear trap, Lady Lazarus wait in the shadows until the unwary step on them – at which point they bite off a leg. ‘Blondes’ is – remarkably – not even the most aggressive song on the raucous, blistering EP that shares its name, a collection of hammering, screaming fury 😡”
Favoured State – It’s New

Favoured State – It’s New

“Rambunctious and rumbly, Favoured State unleash jerky mayhem from the off, limbs flailing madly and sweat flying through the air. Designed to raise the heart rate to dangerous levels, and to leave you exhausted in all the best ways 🥵”
