With the vibrant indie music scene in Australia and New Zealand constantly outshining much of the output from their British and American cousins, Little Indie picks our weekly bunch of some of the best new tracks on offer.
ZEBARAH - DEPTHS (feat. Animal Feelings, Mammals)
Sydney-based duo ZEBARAH join forces with Mammals and Animal Feelings on this chilled piece of future-bass that was originally self-released on Guy’s [Mammals] 'Chase Your Bliss' EP, "that we wanted to rework and reproduce. Guy has some amazing vocals, so we just wanted to beef up the production behind it and add our own flavour."
PARK WARD - TOO MUCH FOR ME
This alt-grunge-punk four-piece from Perth, led by the harsh grunge vocal of James P, turn out a Nirvana-esque sound, on this new three-minute number.
HEAT WAVE - THE SILENCE
The Melbourne-based synthpop duo released this final cut via Psychic Hysteria from their 2017 debut album 'Dead Beats' in December. A gothic new wave blaster with vocalist and synthist Kalindy Williams supplying a "candy-coated horror."
BAD BANGS - HEARTS
The follow-up to their first official October release, 'Swimming', the short 'n' sweet two and a half minute new single (dropped December 26) of foot-tapping beats, melodic bass, and vocal harmonies from Melbourne's garage-rock female trio: Shelby De Fazio, Emily Collins and Monica Ireland.
HOLMSEY - ESCAPE (ft. Rory McKenna)
18-year-old Melbourne producer Mitch Holmes dropped this electronic new single just before Christmas, bringing in Rory McKenna to supply the chilled vocal overlay.
GIVERNY - PLOTHOLES
Following his debut EP, 'Liabilities', dark, futuristic Sydney artist Phillip Spiteri has recently released this solely electronically-produced single, that he wrote about the end of the world. “I wanted to write something that was reminiscent to Dead Or Alive’s ‘You Spin Me Round’ or New Order’s ‘Shell Shock’ due to my obsession with mid to late ’80s pop and my love for analogue synths and ambient pads."
