Keep an eye out for a quick roundup of our time away here on the blog later in the week.
To the music…
1. “She Wants To Know” – Half Moon Run
Shooting to notice of many with their killer first single “Full Circle” back in 2012, former BC lads Half Moon Run recently released their debut album “Dark Eyes” from which this single is taken.
The band will be Down Under for a your in early January. You can bet I’ll be there when they drop into Brisbane’s Old Museum on January 3rd – cant wait!
2. “Voice Drifting” – The Holidays
Each and every week there’s a song that pops up during my weekly Triple J listening that tends to linger in my mind until #MusicMonday next rolls around. This week it’s been the track “Voice Drifting”, by Sydneysiders The Holidays.
3. “Come A Little Closer” – Cage The Elephant
BOWLING GREEN, USA
4. “Tourist” – RAC
This isn’t the first you’ve heard from RAC (aka André Allen Anjos) after I posted his hit, and one of my favourite singles of 2013 so far, “Let Go”, earlier in the year.
For “Tourist”, RAC enlists the vocals of Tokyo Police Club’s David Monks.

5. “Say Something” – A Great Big World
NEW YORK, USA
Slowing things down for the last track this week with this emotional ballad from New Yorkers, A Great Big World, which gained a huge amount of exposure when it was used as the backing track for a popular dance performance on the recently completed 2013 US series of “So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD)”.
