This isn’t first time that we’ve featured Australian talent TUSHAR, and we’re sure it won’t be the last either.

The artist unveiled his latest release today, called ‘Bloodshot Eyes’. As we’ve come to expect from this rising musician, the song treats listeners to a thoughtfully constructed yet mesmerising mix of pop and rock.

“This song is based on meeting someone at a party that is killing the vibe, and you want to do anything you can to stay away from them.”

We’d love to see TUSHAR perform at next year’s Great Escape festival, so if anyone out there is reading this and can find a way, let’s make it happen!


TUSHAR – Exit Sign

If you’re in the mood for some cheery indie-pop then today’s your lucky day! Australian-based artist TUSHAR is back with a charming new single that’s sure to get you in the weekend mood.

Lyrically inspired by the moments when you realise you’ve had a little too much to drink, ‘Exit Sign’ presents listeners with a playful fusion of indie and dreamy pop.

“This song was written about that universal moment on a night out when you go to the bathroom alone and realise how drunk you really are. Shoutout to all the adolescents out there; may you also be saved by an ‘Exit Sign’.”

As a talent on the rise (with more than 250k cumulative Spotify streams to date), TUSHAR is a name to watch for. You can catch the artist at this year’s SXSW in Austin – more details can be found here.

New Music: TUSHAR

Like so many other fantastic emerging artists right now, TUSHAR began writing music during lockdown. Based in Adelaide, this talent is mixing elements of indie-pop with alt-rock to create a charmingly feel-good sound that is near impossible not to bop along to.

“‘July 20’ is about the night I bumped into my lover, before we became lovers! We already knew each other previously, but we never actually caught up or hung out until the night of July 20. I was with my friends, lining up to get into a music festival, when I hear my name being shouted out from a taxi that just pulled up. It was my Katie girl and her friend. They joined us in the line and our energies just clicked; making us inseparable all night. We had the best time talking, dancing, drinking, partying together. Even when it was just ‘too loud to talk’, we’d just jump around and dance instead. Not a care in the world, our focus was solely on each other.”
