It’s time for another fresh dose of local Aussie jams! From crunchy Lo-fi rock, to rosy dream-pop, this week we’ve got six new tracks to cover all your bases this weekend. Each of this week’s artists are full of talent and have a unique sound. Get around them!
Lochie Colin - 'I Don’t Know'
This beautiful meld of lo-fi pop and indie rock encapsulates bedroom music at its finest. Accompanied by shady guitars and layered vocals, Lochie’s lyrics articulate the complexities of the young mind, both romantically and in a personal sense.
”I don’t know what I’m doing/ I don’t know who I’m trying to be/I don’t know why I love you/ Or why you’re so obsessed with me/ I don’t know why/ I don’t know why/ I don’t know why. “

The Vitriots - 'Down On My Level'
The Vitriots’ latest track is a blistering collision between the heavy garage rock of the 90s and the lo-fi surf rock that seems to be thriving this summer. These guys find a sizzling sweet spot between bands like Oasis, Foo Fighters and The Creases and continue to impress with each song they release.
Ms. Thandi - 'The Eyes'
This track is such a groove. Drawing on inspiration from artists like Erykah Badu and Alicia Keys, Ms. Thandi combines elements of old-school jazz with our favourite R'n'B hits from the 90s and 2000s to form ‘The Eyes’ which feels equally familiar and experimental.
Jade Alice x Lucian - 'Wendy'
This track by Jade Alice is not one to be missed. Drawing on the vocal delicacy and lyrical depth that we’ve come to know and love from artists like Aurora, Billie Eilish and Lana Del Ray, Wendy is extra-terrestrial. Featuring Jade Alice’s signature delicate vocals, rosy beats and an ethereal harp, this track will take you to another world.

Zecrio - 'Right Here'
Zecrio's dark R'n'B sound gives me big The Weeknd vibes and definitely deserves more hype. This Sydney-based artist showcases his strong, resonant voice on this track which, when paired with a deep electronic bass, is extremely haunting and makes me feel like I’m doing something wrong by listening - but in the best way!

Pelvis Moves - 'London Compton'
I will be playing ‘London Compton’ at every (socially distanced) house party I attend for the foreseeable future. It’s an electronic dance track that I will also be keeping on the back burner to request at the club because it's begging to be played in a dark room with a sticky floor while a strobe light flashes.
Pelvis Moves spoke on the inspiration for this track: “I wrote this song when clubbing was still a thing… it’s about doing fun things that we shouldn’t be doing in public. Fast forward to now and here we are frothing for clubs to reopen, to be able to hit the dance-floor post Covid and mask free…. and of course… still do stuff like nobody’s watching…”
