Acclaimed Australian indie-pop artist Golden Vessel returns today with a beautifully dreamy release in the form of his new single ‘spinning’.
“In the time around making this song I did a lot of reading on space and science and how the world is beautiful and complex but also so small and insignificant in the full span of the universe. I guess that could seem daunting, but I’ve found this new outlook refreshing and helps put things into perspective.”
The track serves as the third teaser from his forthcoming album, and was co-written & co-produced with Nick Ward and The Nicholas.

Fresh from winning Most Performed R&B/Soul Work for ‘Higher’ at the APRA Awards, he now reveals his latest single ‘Get Down’.
“’Get Down’ is about the idea that I’ve come so far now, I have to keep going, it’s too late to stop what I’m doing now. If there’s a way, please show me how. That song took a while to figure out, just because it was so different compared to what we’ve done before – but then, like one day, I think it just clicked.”

“This song is for anybody who’s had someone they care about move away. For me it was ‘Barcelona’, but I know the idea of wishing someone hadn’t gone to that place and hoping they would just come back is something many people can understand. Maybe listening to ‘Barcelona’ will let you groove your pain away. Who knows. Give it a shot.”
vaultboy’s talent for songwriting has been winning millions of hearts across the world over the last year.
Honest and moving, his powerful new pop-ballad ‘Disaster’ was written as a result of seeing someone you love in self-destruct mode.

Alternative Nashville outfit Secondhand Sound are back today with an anthemic and simply outstanding slice of indie-rock through the form of new single ‘Colm’s Conquest’.
“What’s interesting about this song is that it’s a rare example of a Secondhand Sound song that didn’t originate on my acoustic guitar. Usually, I sit and pine over a song, specifically lyrics, for months. This one came really fast and that was refreshing.” – Sawyer J. Estok, Secondhand Sound

After two long years, critically acclaimed Norwegian singer songwriter Siv Jakobsen is back with what is likely to be her most vulnerable song to date, entitled ‘Most Of The Time’.
Ethereal and beautiful in style, this melodic and deeply moving song is about wanting – but being unable to forget.
“‘Most of the Time’ is about not being able to forget a particularly difficult relationship from my past. When left undealt with, the memories seemed to heighten in my sleep, in my subconscious, day and night, almost as if I was being haunted. It’s about how our past affects our future, how it can affect our personalities morphing into someone slightly different. Being back in this place again after such a long time was a much greater shock to my system than I would have ever thought it could be, and it forced me to unbox a lot of things I thought I had safely stored away in the back corners of my mind. In the end, it’s about reminding myself that I am feeling better now, most of the time.”
Track of the week. Anatolian psych-R&B fusion artist emir taha returns with one of the most impressive releases of the month so far.
Produced together with Jay Moon (duckwrth, Col3trane), ‘Lades’ is an arresting song that is conceptually experimental while also maintaining a dreamy and melancholic essence.
“‘Bile bile lades’ is a Turkish idiom which means doing something that you know is futile. You know you’ll lose at the end but you still do it, knowing that it’s gonna harm you. It’s like taking a bite of the forbidden fruit. It will taste sweet at first but you know it’s going to poison you. Sort of like wilful ignorance. I wrote it about something I knew I had to get rid of, but still kept anyway.”
The track comes ahead of the artist’s sold-out debut UK headline show at The Waiting Room on May 18th.

‘Sunshine’ was written by Skott herself, together with Peter St James and Martin Stilling (Charlie XCX, LÉON), and serves as a taster for her upcoming second album (out later this year)
“Let the ceiling cave in, stay open. The song is about daring to live life without a roof, without limits. Daring to be vulnerable and let both the sunshine as well as the rain in. If you over-protect yourself from potential bad things and stormy weather, that same shield could also block out the sun and some of the best things in life.”
UK talent tmdistant continues to turn his own life experiences into extraordinary art through his latest musical offering.
‘what’s wrong with you?’ is built over a stunning guitar-infused production that allows this rising artist to deliver raw emotion into every lyric, which in turn connects with listeners:
