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.

PNAU – CHAMELEON (Dance/Electro – Australia)

Pnau

Australia’s most loved electronic act PNAU is back with “Chameleon”, their first single in 4 years. This new electrifying tune is produced by Sam Littlemore (co-producer of PNAU’s 2007 self-titled album and now an integral part of the band) and features the addition of Kira Devine, previously a dancer and back-up singer for Lauryn Hill, on vocals bringing a new layer to the band’s vision.

To know PNAU is to know that their creative process cannot be bundled into just one song and this is why the single comes with a handpicked selection of remixes courtesy of some of the world’s most prolific DJs.

SEEKAE – TURBINE BLUE (Electronica – Australia)

Seekae
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.
