Anamnesis – OK Sure
OK Sure is the moniker of producer Akaysha, who’s been steadily honing her musical craft in the past few years – having won the Triple J Unearthed Hermitude remix comp in 2015, and being a finalist in the Your Paradise DJ Comp in the same year.
Her recent EP Anamnesis is the amalgation of the new wave, industrial influence of Gary Numan and Depeche Mode – clearly heard in ‘Don’t Piss Me Off (Or I’ll Write Songs About You)’, and the more downtempo, trance stylings of artists like Crystal Castles (which can be heard on the tracks ‘Third Eye’ and ‘Insidious’)
Dance With Me – Cameron Avery
‘Dance With Me’ is the latest single from songsmith Cameron Avery and will appear on his forthcoming album, Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams (which drops on March 10). Channeling influences from songwriters including Nick Cave and Paul Kelly, Avery delivers a poetic request for companionship, set in the sonic landscape of classic rock n roll production. Hailing from Fremantle, Avery lends his craft to a number of projects including Tame Impala, Pond, and his own band The Growl.
Catastrophe – Hollow Everdaze
This young Melbourne outfit are paving the way with their lo – fi psychedelic pop blend, and their new single ‘Catastrophe’ is the perfect taste of this. This tune is from their forthcoming album Cartoons, due for release later this year via Deaf Ambitions.
A Quality Of Mercy – RVG
This is the title track from the bands most recent record, release only a few weeks ago. Hailing from Melbourne’s northern suburbs, RVG have built a strong reputation through their new wave, punk rock stylings. If you’re a fan of Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees or New Order, then give RVG’s new record a spin
True? – GOD$
The debut EP from Melbourne alt rock band GOD$ combines a wide variety of influences (from hard rock, to synth pop and psychedelia) into a eclectic blend. Check out their new EP True? below. GOD$ will launch their new record at the Workers Club on March 13.
