LANKS – VIET ROSE EP (Alt/Pop – Australia)

Lanks

Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Will Cuming, aka LANKS, recently released a 6-track extended play titled Viet Rose. Drifting between skittering electronic beats, sleek samples and more introspective piano-led numbers, this EP features previous singles “Bitter Leaf” and “Golden Age”, along with a handful of brand new tunes.

Cuming co-produced the 6-tracker alongside Andrei Eremin (Chet Faker, Hiatus Kaiyote) and invited friends and monumental talents Airling and Tom Iansek (one half of Big Scary) to contribute vocals on a couple of tracks.

Viet Rose is a beautiful display of heartfelt pop music which draws from LANKS’ rich sonic palette and will no doubt cement his reputation as one of the most gifted pop artist on the Aussie indie scene.

Lisa Mitchell
Australian singer songwriter Lisa Mitchell released her third album, Warriors, in October 2016. Sonically different from her previous works, this new LP was produced by Eric Dubowsky (who has worked with Flume and Chet Faker). “We really got rid of a lot of guitar and piano in this album,” she explains, “I was interested in someone doing a different thing than what I’d done in the past.”

Directed by award-winning Australian director and writer, Vanessa Gazy, the video for “Warhol” is Part One of a story that spans over both this song and “Warriors”. Watch both videos below!

WOODES – POISON (Alt/Pop – Australia)

Woodes

Melbourne based producer, singer and songwriter Elle Graham, better known as Woodes, has only been around for about two years but her beautifully crafted songs have caused many a head to turn. After the success of super catchy single “The Thaw”, the young artist released a 6-track self-titled EP featuring older tracks and dazzling new tune “Poison”, which was co-produced by Brisbane artist Golden Vessel and Melbourne’s own Elkkle

A few days ago Woodes shared “Bonfire” via her SoundCloud. This new unreleased track was written, co-produced, performed and arranged by Woodes and Rob Kleiner, with additional percussion by Elkkle. It combines Graham’s poetic lyrics with a clever mix of tribal drums and subtle synths.
