An anthem for all things discontentedness, Tiarnie’s new single ‘Don’t Ask Me’ layers guitar sirens and heavy rock undertones with self-questioning lyrics that have you nodding your head in solidarity. We’ve all been there; catching a case of the ‘grass-is-greeners’ and messing up a good thing all in the name of complacency. A track to accompany your doubt spirals, ‘Don’t Ask Me’ is hitting a real spot.

Lach Marshall - ‘Tired Old Gag’
Ever had that sad, mellow feeling when the dust has settled after a gag gone wrong? You’re not mad at yourself, just, dare I say, disappointed? Lach Marshall’s new single has bottled this unique aesthetic up into 2 mins and 17 seconds of pensive, melodic blues. An easy, breezy listen for your trip to the naughty corner.

Ultra Dude - ‘New Hair Cut’
If you’ve just had a post-iso haircut and you’re feeling a little insecure, listener discretion is advised. It’s hard to know whether to laugh or cry at Ultra Dudes fresh single ‘New Hair Cut’. Based on a comment form a work colleague following a new haircut (“Nice haircut, but you're still an asshole”) this track is tapping into that niche feeling of getting a quarter head of buttery highlights and a little curtain bang only to realise you’re exactly the same, just $400 poorer. Regardless, this groovy track will have you putting your hair-related anxieties aside in the name of crispy guitar and catchy hooks.
