OSCAR OSCAR – SEE MYSELF (Indie/Electronica – Australia)

After the success of his recent debut single “Hey Ho”, Brisbane artist Oscar Oscar returns with his next release “See Myself” (Majestic Casual Records), which is a brooding daydream-like experience of melodic electronica.

This track is about introspection and reflecting on the things that really matter in your life. Let yourself be captivated by the music as the synths circle smoothly and drown you in a hypnotic soundscape.

WASHED OUT – MISTER MELLOW (Lo-Fi/Electronica – US)

Multi-instrumentalist Ernest Greene, aka Washed Out, has been making music out of his home studio in Georgia for close to 10 years. His album Mister Mellow was released a few months ago on Stones Throw Records, accompanied by a visual album on DVD.

Conceived over the course of 2 years, Mister Mellow is intensely personal (Greene’s only collaborator was mix engineer Cole MGN) – but the ideas and observations found within the album speak to a much larger shared experience that is affecting an entire generation. The album was influenced by old classics as well as the experimental collage techniques of musique concrète. Styles as diverse as free jazz, house, hip-hop and psych are combined together to create a busy, chaotic mix.

ELKKLE – FRAILS (Electronica -Australia)

Melbourne artist Elkkle (Callum Baker) has been getting a lot of attention in the past few months; he collaborated with Aussie songstress Woodes and also co-wrote Golden Vessel’s ‘Shoulders’. And now he has a brand new single ready for your listening pleasure.

“‘Frails’ is about the relationship between mental and physical health. Sometimes when one begins to slip, it’s very easy to let it drag the other one down. It describes feelings of fragility, hopelessness, and isolation. Albeit with a desire to be better.” – elkkle

This new tune follows on from Elkkle’s critically acclaimed singles “Soft Erasure” and “Diderot”, released in June 2017 and November 2016 respectively. He is now working hard on his debut solo EP, which should hopefully be released before the end of the year.
