New Music: Tramp Stamps

A refreshingly bold outfit hailing from Nashville, Tramp Stamps are here to shake things up with an unfiltered new voice for today’s pop punk landscape.

Armed with awesome melodies and sharp productions, Tramp Stamps tackle societal ills like white-boy privilege and fragile masculinity through their lyricism in a uniquely fun and charming way.

“I’d love it if our music could give women space to be vulgar and silly and have a lot of fun with it, the same way that men have for so long. We want to remind everyone that being empowered doesn’t have to feel so heavy all the time – you can show that other, lighter side of yourself, and still say something important.” – Maino, Tramp Stamps

Ylona Garcia – All That

Lockdown has resulted in many artists coming up with quarantine-related songs, but none have hit the disco spot quite like Ylona Garcia’s new banger, ‘All That‘.

The track fires up as Garcia celebrates leaving all the toxicity in her life behind, as she moves forward. It’s the perfect metaphor for what the world has gone through over the last year.

While CRITTER seem like an unlikely duo (consisting of a folk performer and former rap producer), together they make some of the most enjoyable pop you’ll experience all week. It’s pure joy, and I for one can’t wait to see what they come up with next.

A sister and brother band hailing from Australia, Esther and Will grew up in a small country town in New South Wales before moving to Melbourne and Berlin respectively. They would write music together on their annual Christmas catch-ups, inspired by their 90s Rage addictions.

“‘Fatal.Attraction’ is a track written about the holy trinity of tins, darts and breaking hearts. It brings to light love hate relationships, the desire for a puff after a sip and addictions of all kinds.”
