Los Angeles based French-American duo Freedom Fry are sharing more dancey tunes from their recently released EP, Strange Attraction. This new release veers away from the alt-folk of their previous works to venture into indie-pop, full of glowing synth lines, funky guitars and catchy vocals.

On “Party Down”, the mood is festive and you will have a hard time not tapping your feet (or even singing along). Marie Seyrat and Bruce Driscoll’s perfectly complementary vocal interplay adds to the overall very polished production. This track is definitely a well-crafted pop song that’s hard to get enough of, and luckily there’s more where this came from with Strange Attraction‘s title track.

Australian multi-platinum selling sibling duo Angus & Julia Stone recently shared the exquisite video for new single “Chateau”. This stunning and hypnotic new tune is taken from the duo’s forthcoming album Snow, which is will be released on September 15th via [PIAS].

The video stars leading Australian actors Courtney Eaton (Mad Max Fury Road) and Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers, Stranger Things Season 2). Set in the magical surrounds of Mexico City, it finds its two young protagonists embarking on a surreal and colourful adventure – stealing Angus & Julia’s car, crashing a decadent wedding and leading the guests to an underground disco.

LANKS – BITTER LEAF (Alt/Pop – Australia)


LANKS is the enigmatic solo electronic project of Melbourne multi-instrumentalist, Will Cuming. A classically trained jazz guitarist, he is also influenced by electronic, pop and folk music. His brand new single “Bitter Leaf” is a hybrid of a pop song featuring intricate, layered guitar work, and Cuming’s elegant signature falsetto.

“Gradually” is the first song taken off Ben Watt’s upcoming solo album Fever Dream – the follow-up to 2014’s Hendra – which will be out on April 8 on Watt’s own label Unmade Road. “Gradually” has a ragged rock tone to it, quite a departure from the artist’s previous electronic endeavours or his sound with Everything But The Girl.

The song is “about what can happen to a long ongoing relationship over time; the gradual shifting sands; how love mutates, changes speed; how interior worlds can be obstructive,” Watt explains. “Gradually” comes with a video shot on the backstreets of Hackney and Islington by new young Welsh director, John Jeanes.

The Ben Watt Band feat. Bernard Butler will be on tour from April. For more info, check out his site or Facebook. Buy on
