#Musicmonday – #082

WELCOME to another week where the strength of the current Australian music scene, Melbourne in particular this week, is more than evident and shines across a mixed bag of genres from driving indie pop rock through to the guilty pleasures of 90’s synth-pop.

Get to it. Go.

1. “That’s Desire” – Client Liaison


Kicking off this week’s #MusicMonday is a complete and utter, spectacular time-warp back to the days of shoulder-pad-enhanced tailored jackets, big-permed hair, synthesisers-a-plenty, sax solos and more from the late eighties/early nineties!

All this dished up by Aussie newcomers Harvey Miller and Monte Morgan, who together form the retro, synth-pop band of the moment – Client Liaison.

I saw these guys play at Brisbane’s Laneway Festival back in February and was super impressed by their commitment to the genre they are comprehensively re-making their own in Australia right now.

Make sure you check out and become suitably mesmerised by the brilliance of the video for this one!

2. “Can You Hear Me” – Dan Croll


It’s a bold call so early in the year, but UK singer-songwriter Dan Croll has one of the best releases of the year on his hands after releasing the album “Sweet Disarray” a couple of weeks ago.

“Can You Hear Me”, a beautifully simple, melodic track is the latest from the album which Dan will be touring around North America, starting in LA in early April.

3. “The Haunted” – Northeast Party House


The indie pop rock chops of the six-member Northeast Party House oozes through in this great track which had me in hooked the opening driving bass line.

“We all stand too long on the wrong side…” Giddy up!

4. “Shadows (ft. Harry James Angus)” – Way of the Eagle


After having topped Triple J’s Most Played Track chart last year with his debut hit “Rattlesnake” featuring the lyrical talents of Dan Sultan, producer-songwriter Jan Skubiszewski, aka Way of the Eagle, has teamed up with The Cat Empire’s Harry James Angus to release this pumping, brass-pulsing beaut!

Not available on SoundCloud. Boo!

5. “Cadence” – Fractures


The vocal stylings of Melbourne’s Mark Zito (aka Fractures) resonated with me the first time I heard his big hit “Twisted” last year.

“Cadence”, an electro slow-burner, is Fractures’ follow-up single which holds the same appeal for me, and will no doubt register some repeat listening by the James Blake fans out there.
