Dream Koala - Saturn Boy

Day 242 Dream Koala – Saturn Boy

You know the score. When Dream Koala releases new music, it’s almost become instinct to stop everything that you’re doing, and simply bathe in his beautiful, melodic music. Part of a five track EP entitled ‘Earth. Home. Destroyed.’, new single Saturn Boy helps depict what Dream Koala describes as “a future where all the animals disappeared from Earth,…

Dawn Golden - All I Want

Day 241 Dawn Golden – All I Want

Drawing many comparisons to Colplay’s new output, Dawn Golden’s sumptuous release All I Want almost passed my be unknowingly, had it not come to my attention thanks to one of my best friends. Insisting that this would be something “I would love”, they weren’t wrong. A soft, heart-warming ballad, All I Want is like a sonic hug, comforting…

Lorde - Tennis Court [Flume Remix]

Day 240 Lorde – Tennis Court [Flume Remix]

What many would describe as a match made in heaven, two of the Southern-hemisphere’s most successful, talented and unbelievably young musicians, Lorde and Flume have teemed up on this huge remix of Tennis Court. Not a huge fan of the original, Flume ramps up everything to 100%, sparing nothing on the on anthemic scale. At 6 minutes…

L A Y L A - Smokestacks

Day 239 L A Y L A – Black Mud

It was only at the very beginning of the month that I first introduced L A Y L A onto these pages, but I’m very pleased to say she’s back so soon. Her new song Black Mud is similar in many ways to the Vaults and Mononoke tracks I shared earlier this week, but it’s very much…

BOOTS - Dreams ft. Beyonce

Day 238 BOOTS – Dreams ft. Beyoncé

Jordy Asher aka. BOOTS may be a new name to many of you (including me), but the collaborator on his new track couldn’t be more well known. With the release of his debut mixtape ‘WinterSpringSummerFall’ just around the corner, singer-songwriter and rapper BOOTS has teemed up with none other than Beyoncé herself on his ridiculously beautiful new single Dreams. Incredibly…

Vaults - Premonitions

Day 237 Vaults – Premonitions

Similar in many ways to my post on Mononoke yesterday, British trio Vaults return with their intoxicating third release, Premonitions. With a broad electronic feel to it, Premonitions builds from a steady, dark, murmuring echo into a resolute, shimmering anthem, that has so much energy and life, it’s truly overwhelming. This has epic written all over it. Premonitions will be released on June…

Mononoke - Bones and Glory

Day 236 Mononoke – Barefoot And Broken

I’m pretty sure Mononoke can do no wrong in my eyes. Having followed her journey from the very beginning, we once again find the mysterious songstress in a desolate, but beautifully enchanting position on her latest release. Hauntingly melodic, third single Barefoot and Broken is a slow, fragile ballad built on a mountain of pain and…

Flyte - Where Nobody Knows Your Name

Day 234 Flyte – Where Nobody Knows Your Name

Flyte can do no wrong in my eyes. Already impressed by their A-side single We Are The Rain, the crooning quartet return with an equally special B-side release, Where Nobody Knows Your Name. Despite the melancholic subject matter, Flyte seem to be capable of turning literally anything into a jovial, witty and pleasantly enjoyable listening experience. Catch the band…

Billy Moon - Video Girls

Day 233 Billy Moon – Video Girls

For the first time in a long time, I took a good look at all the music in my inbox this morning. One artist that stood straight out was Billy Moon, a Canadian-based duo who play dirty, careless grunge-rock-n-roll. Part of the reason I was so compelled to enjoy their music was the blunt but…
