The weekend is fast approaching, so here’s a handful of bangers to bulk up your playlist. Featuring electronic vibes from Mura Masa to indie-rock via Tiny Little Houses. Enjoy.
Empress Of – ‘Woman Is a Word’
NY-producer, Lorely Rodriguez, has dropped a fierce new track ‘Woman Is A Word’ in which, she beautifully debates the social norms surrounding gender perception and assumed roles, with stunning ease and wit. Poignant lyrics, mixed with some dreamy synth has created not just an anthemic song but sends a powerful message at large.
Tiny Little Houses – ‘Milo Tin’
Possibly one of the catchiest songs hitting the airwaves at the moment. Tiny Little Houses have produced a winner with ‘Milo Tin’. The track winds woozy riffs around a messy and raucous beat, with singer Caleb Karvountzis’s distinctive vocals stitching together a self-aware take on a relationship in the Australian burbs. And repeat.
Dorsal Fins – ‘Let ‘Em In’
Melbourne nine-piece, Dorsal Fins bring the goods once again with ‘Let ‘Em In’, literally, about someone knocking at the door and encouraging to let them in, although could have a political underlying message – take it as you will. The positive vibes, contrasting vocal harmonies and wide use of instruments make this one a certified tune.
Mura Masa – ‘What If I Go’
Alex Crossan, better known as the talent behind Mura Masa, has slayed it with another release ‘What If I Go’. This kid has got the electronic vibes down pat and turns the ripe ol’ age of just 20 in a couple days. A touch of synth, some sick beats, gorgeous female vocals, and a hint of island vibes makes this song an absolute jam.
Slowly Slowly – ‘PMTWGR’
The Melbourne group, Slowly Slowly, have dropped their new single ‘PMTWGR’ – maybe not safe for work, listen and you’ll hear why. Featuring some honest lyrics, mellow guitar work and a solid contribution from Tom Lanyon of CERES band. Better yet, you can hear this song live this weekend in Melbourne at their single launch, yew!
