Last week also saw the much-hyped release of Daft Punk’s first new single for quite a while in “Get Lucky”. It was pretty much a shoe-in to kick off this week’s #MusicMonday, but I figure there’s scant chance that you HAVEN’T already heard it, and it doesn’t really fit the distinct “Aussie” flavour I wanted to run with this week.
Yes, each and every song listed below is from an amazingly large current pool of talented, up-and-coming Aussie artists who are commanding more international attention than any time I can recall before.
Anyway, enough from me. Enjoy… and if you do enjoy, let me know!
1. “You’re Still Gone” – Gold Fields
2. “Ohio” – Kingswood
More than capable live as displayed by this performance in Sydney, “Kingswood” are easily one of our top rock acts right now. I saw them support “The Bamboos” recently & was VERY impressed!
3. “Is This How You Feel” – The Preatures
4. “Closure” – Owl Eyes
23 year old “Owl Eyes” aka Brooke Addamo, a former Australian Idol finalist and “Triple J Hottest 100” veteran is coming up with hit after hit these days. “Closure” is her latest offering & was a no-brainer to add to this week’s list.
5. “We Have Love” – Panama
Stoked to see this 5-piece Sydney band back on the radar with another killer pop track in “We Have Love”.
