Australian electronic trio Seekae have shared new single “Turbine Blue”, the first original music from the group in over two years. The track is out now on Future Classic and can be streamed below.
In a striking step beyond last album The Worry, the band explores new sonic territory to create their most confident, honest and direct work to date. The song was composed and recorded in Berlin and features 80’s and 90’s Korg synthesisers that provide a mid-tempo, drone-like progression, like a siren’s song, just as blissful and as it is agonising. Full of hope but laced with melancholia, “Turbine Blue” is a song written as a confession about the cyclical nature of love, departing and arriving, hurting and pleasing all in one act.

Woodes is the moniker for 24-year-old Melbourne based producer, singer and songwriter Elle Graham, whose quick ascension into the limelight has caused many a head to turn. After the success of her debut solo single “Daggers & Knives” (over 120,000 views on YouTube and solid airplay on Triple j unearthed and FBi Radio), Woodes recently shared new track “The Thaw” which was co-written and co-produced by fellow Melbournian artist LANKS.
“The Thaw” is another powerfully beautiful track, which combines Graham’s poetic lyrics with a clever mix of textured synths and subtle beats. She is currently collaborating with local and international artists including Kilter, Milwaukee Banks, Set Mo, Kintaro, FØRD and Golden Vessel on some new tunes and she has a remix EP just out for “The Thaw”.

The Radio Dept. is a Swedish band fronted by friends Johan Duncanson and Martin Carlberg. The pair recently announced the release of their fourth studio album, Running Out Of Love, on October 21st via Stockholm-based premium pop label Labrador Records. This will be their first full length recording since 2010’s critically acclaimed album Clinging To A Scheme. First single “Swedish Guns” is a haunting takedown of the Swedish arms industry.
Running Out Of Love is about life in Sweden in 2016 moving in the wrong direction: politically, intellectually, morally. It’s about the impatience that turns into anger, hate and ultimately withdrawal and apathy when love for the world and our existence begins to falter.
