Let romæo take you inside the mind of a siren as it seduces its prey on her latest single “TAKE IT”. The Gadigal (Sydney) based musician/producer bewitches with her sixth single, inspired by her personal interest of mythological beings.
Regular members of Sydney’s underground music scene, Fergus Bailey & The Teeth have picked up a pair of oversized scissors and cut one of those giant ribbons to unveiled their debut full-length, Unfurl. It’s an album of slow burning firecrackers that erupt into a dazzling array of high class instrumentation.
There’s no doubt Dr Sure’s Unusual Practice have nailed their band name. Not only because it’s in the top 5 bands names of all time, but also because I felt like I was in a medical themed escape room while I listened to their new record, Remember The Future? Vol 2 & 1.
A year on from her debut album, Harmony Byrne has gifted us all with the musical equivalent of a home-cooked meal, “Kings & Queens”. The Dja Dja Wurrung (Daylesford) based artist has created her very own spellbinding spin on folk storytelling that reflects her Mormon upbringing but also her disposition to the blues and rock and roll.

The first time I heard this track was at the Chippo Hotel, just a few months before Sydney would go into its second lockdown. I treated myself to a Newtowner and headed downstairs, completely innocent to the fact that I was about to have my socks knocked off by an Austinmer four-piece rendering some of the most authentic 70s psychedelia I’ve ever experienced. Now, you and I alike are able to enjoy “Writing On The Wall” whenever we please.

At a time when Corona was just a Mexican beer, Sydney singer-songwriter Isobel Knight slipped into the glitz and glamour of New York City to record her new record. Two years on, the independent artist’s sophomore album, Here Now is exactly that. Knight offers an honest and intimate reflection on the world as seen by the musician, in a ten-track exhibition of her breathtaking musical skillset.
Here’s a situation where the saying “If it ain’t broke – Don’t fix it” is completely irrelevant. The original release of “Fruity Lexia” is far from broke, in fact its a really good track. But the re-release is quite simply incredible. It’s lush, romantic and moody, sounding a bit like a more ethereal Methyl Ethel (cop that Dr. Seuss).
