Sounds Of: October

AHHHH, IT’S ALREADY OCTOBER. This year has seriously gone so fast but I ain’t complainin’! Another month of wonderful songs for your listening pleasure, hope you like! x

EMPRESS OF - I Don’t Even Smoke Weed

Best track from her new album imho! Love the retro synths and electronic percussion, it reminds me so much of the music I listened to in 2009 and 18 year old Bridge is honestly THRIVING! Such. A. Bop.

FIDLAR - Can’t You See

The LA band have swapped punk for swag rock and I’m extremely here for it. Love the funky keys and Zac whipping out his falsetto. A clean cut track but super catchy nonetheless.

YORKE - First Light

This song makes me miss my car!! I sold it when I moved to Sydney this year but “First Light” would totally be a track I would crank the volume on and sing along to at the top of my lungs as I drive down the highway. It’s a romantic, nostalgic piece of pop perfection that I think any fans of Vera Blue or even Taylor Swift would like.

THE WORLD OF BIRDS - Having You

Another warm, feel good indie bop from one of my fave new discoveries of 2018. Bird is the word!

VERA BLUE - All The Pretty Girls

A smart and strong offering from Vera who seems to be channeling a bit of HAIM and Fleetwood Mac as she playfully takes on stereotypes in this new jam.

MOANING LISA - Lily

An epic rock-ballad from the Canberra four piece that is a straight punch to ya heart. Huge harmonies (I’m obsessed with how great Charlie and Hayley sound together), huge instrumentation, huge emotions…I’M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE.

CHARLIE COLLINS - Mexico

There’s so much I love about this track. The warm guitar tones sit in a similar vein to The Paper Kites/The War On Drugs/Holy Holy/Middle Kids…Charlie’s vocals are so sublime and effortless. A longing indie rock number with a country folk twang and an impressive second single from the Tamworth native.

JOYRIDE - 6am

Mix some RnB and pop with some club elements plus the soulful barotone of Joyride, and you get this eccentric lil earworm! A stand out track from his debut album Sunrise Chaser.

BRING ME THE HORIZON - Wonderful Life {ft. Dani Filth}

The UK outfit have unleashed another monster of a tune from their forthcoming third record and it’s an aggressive, electrifying ode to their heavier roots with the help of metal legend Dani Filth.

THEOPHILUS LONDON - Only You {ft. Tame Impala}

I cannot get enough of this afro-boogie from Theo and Tame! A glitzy cover of Steve Monite’s 1984 hit that will tickle the fancy of any disco lover.
