New tracks coming up from Down Under




Little Indie casts its ears and eyes over more of the latest sounds to emerge recently from Down Under.


DESERT MOONS - ROUGH TRADE

NSW Central Coast-based indie-electronic duo, Desert Moons (brothers Jake and Simon Dobson), have just revealed this self-produced debut single, recorded at their home studio. Combining organic and experimental electronic instrumentation, ‘Rough Trade’ melds themes of dark dream-pop, indie-rock and hip-hop.




CHINESE NEW YEAR - LAND AND SEA

Influenced by King Gizzard, Adelaide indie alt-rock four-piece Chinese New Year's new single is a laid-back easy, jazz-esque melodic stroll.




THE BEAMISH BOYS - FALLING BACKWARDS

After releasing their debut EP 'Sparks' last year, acoustic indie pop brothers from South Queensland, Jeremy (18) and Ben (20) Beamish, show off their vocal harmonies, fingerstyle guitar and catchy original melodies.




KATANKIN - HEY LITTLE SPIDER

June released debut single from Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Helen Catanchin. Formally trained as a jazz singer, here she explores electronic and indie pop arrangements, while maintaining the same emphasis on poetic, heartfelt lyrics accompanied by powerfully expressive vocals.




BILLYMAREE - BLUE

First track uploaded online from 17-year-old Samoan Billymaree Duffy. Raised in Sydney and now Brisbane-based, the young songstress masters rich, soulful vocals in an electronic RnB setting.




THE HARPOONS - DO YOU WANT MY LOVE

New single from the Melbourne quartet, driving a funky rhythm and thumping bassline. RnB pop futurism melds with Bec Rigby's dominant vocal.



[Video] Slum Sociable - Don't Come Back Another 100 Times





Melbourne duo Slum Sociable - Miller Upchurch (vocals, percussion) and Ed Quinn (production/keys/guitar)  - share the Jem Rankin-directed video to new single 'Don't Come Back Another 100 Times'.

Taken from their debut album due for release later this year, ‘Don’t Come back Another 100 Times’ was recorded in the duo’s hometown with local producer Russell Fawcus and mixed by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Cut Copy, Gnarls Barkley).

In the band’s own words, "‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times' is about trying not to be shallow. It touches on elements of regret, of losing someone because of it and accepting the responsibility of your actions. It's introspective, but written for anyone to be able to relate to and hopefully help come to terms with their own similar situation."

Track Of The Day :: RALE - Demento




Words: Sam Geary

Released last Friday (July 21), ‘Demento’ is the new single from Sheffield’s RALE.

The now London-based post-punk/electro trio follow our previous Track Of The Day ‘Glisten’ with this equally catchy and vibrant toe-tapper of a number.

RALE play London's Sebright Arms on July 27 w/ The Wholls + Bang Bang Romeo.

Listen :: Rat Boy - In The City




With his debut album 'Scum' out in August 11, Jordan  Cardy - Rat Boy - can't resist in teasing the odd track.

Posting on social media yesterday - 'FELT LIKE DROPPING A NEW ONE X' - the result was ‘In The City’,  a two and a half minute heavy bass groover.

Listen in.

Listen :: Tigercub - The Divided States Of Us





Brighton trio Tigercub have announced a new EP, 'Evolve or Die', will drop on September 29 via limited edition red vinyl and all digital platforms.

Following debut album ‘Abstract Figures In The Dark’, Tigercub
will be releasing 'Evolve or Die' as one of the first ever pay-what-you-want vinyl releases with physical manifesto letters delivered to their cult fanbase earlier this week, which contains a secret pre-order and stream link within.

Stream new single ‘The Divided States Of Us’ below.

Frontman Jamie Hall says of the single: “There are two sides to ‘Divided States Of Us’ - the literal meaning and the metaphorical. Politically I feel like things are almost 50/50 split at the moment, there’s no longer a centre ground, but it’s also about having a divided mental state internally.

“A lot of people are frustrated right now and that’s definitely how I feel. The song’s kind of about how opposites can exist as the same thing in your psyche, how there can be hypocrisy in your own head where you’re totally at odds with yourself; being confused and not being able to fully commit to an idea, logic against emotion, constantly pulling away from each other. The song has no answers to our problems, but it’s about empathy. We’re together in that cathartic creation with other people who have been through that shared experience.”
