It’s weeks like these that I get most excited about, given the quality of new artists appearing “Down Under” these days, and given most of you up there in the northern hemisphere will be possibly/probably hearing these tracks, and indeed these artists, for the very first time!
As always, if you find something you like, let me know about it so I get a good idea of what you like to hear each week.
1. “In Stranger Times” – Jeremy Neale
2. “Twisted” – Fractures
Multi-talented Melbournite, Mark Zito, aka Fractures, is gaining much praise both at home and abroad for his latest track, “Twisted”, described as being “hauntingly fragile”.
3. “The Breach” – Dustin Tebbutt
NEW ENGLAND, AUSTRALIA
Each week I, without hesitation, add a track that I know HAS to be included, after the first few bars. A “no-brainer” if you will. This beautiful track by Dustin Tebbutt, is this week’s no-brainer.
4. “Hearts Like Ours” – The Naked & Famous
AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND
Kiwi power pop outfit The Naked & Famous (now based in Los Angeles) are back with their first killer new track since their massive 2010 release, “Young Blood”.
5. “Hooray” – Bastian’s Happy Flight
Tapping into the 80’s sounds of bands like “Tears for Fears” or, dare I say it, “Rick Astley”, Perth’s Bastian’s Happy Flight have an electro-pop hit on their hands here with “Hooray”.
