Grant Borland “Fragments EP”

"I was really inspired by composers such as Nils Frahm and Hania Rani. Both composers give so much life to the piano, and it's taught me to listen to piano music much differently. I think some of that influence can be heard on some tracks on this EP, but it's also very much authentic to my own sound too. I have a background in writing cinematic music for advertisements, trailers, commercials, etc...., so I think there is that undertone that probably separates my work from others. While this album feels experimental, I've been told my close friends and family that it also sounds like something that could be part of a movie score as well." Grant Borland

Michael Donoghue “Calm Palm EP”

"Last year I hit a bit of a creative wall where I was struggling to find inspiration and fresh ideas. There are some palm trees at the bottom of my garden that I see everyday, so I sat in my studio space one morning and decided to just start composing a track about the palm trees. Calm Palm is the result, and a purple patch of creativity followed suit. Michael Donoghue

Silverlux “Born to Chase the Sun”

"We're heavy on the retro vibe. Although I have a modern computer-based studio, I don't really use any sounds that weren't around in the 70s and we try to reflect that with our visual aesthetic too. It's not a conscious choice, it's just what moves me. The lyrics will generally have a story, but they’re not the focus of the song, as it's more about the sound and creating a vibe." Clive Mead/Silverlux

Roisin O’Hagan “Road From Nevada”

Dreamy guitar sounds and smooth percussion invite into a soulful celebration of life, love for exploration and experiences, and love for the person she has grown to become. Her beautiful vocals soar high like an eagle, and the lyrics are tipped full of little references, tipping hat to the artists whose music had inspired her music the most, as well as giving a nod to phrase "sometimes dreams do come true".

Holly Wild “Thrill of It”

"Thrill of it is about the chemistry that you feel with someone that you shouldn’t, but there is an addictive electrification that you get when you are with them, and you can’t stay away. You know you should, but you don’t. It’s a type of torture, a self punishment that you put yourself through when you are with them because you know you can’t be with them, but the pain feels so good that you don’t turn away." Holly Wild

Mass Experience “Rise Up”

"“Rise Up” is top-notch and sits proudly as a very good example of electronic music that has been produced by someone who understands their craft. This probably comes down to Little and Poulton’s longevity in the Australian music scene but listening to “Rise Up” feels so satisfying with its homage to nostalgia and its ability to take electronic and organic elements to create a track that feels fresh."

Tasha Blackmore “Brown Eyes”

"I wrote Brown Eyes around 9 years ago and I'm really excited to finally release it! Brown Eyes is a song about falling for someone you know deep down is bad for you. You already know the second you set eyes on them, it's going to end with your heart broken and their heart just fine, yet you can't turn away from them. Tasha Blackmore
