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.
MARLON WILLIAMS - PARTY BOY
VOIID - NOT FOR YOU

Plenty of thrash guitar and catchy vocals on this new single, released May 25, from Brisbane's garage punk girls. Inspired by the abrasive lyrics heard in most female punk bands from the 90s plus their own experiences as women in a world where our worth is often judged on appearance.
ASH HENDRIKS - ONE
It's been awhile since we featured the electronic-based Sydney producer - not since last year's collab with Flower Drums on 'Back To Earth' and her own 'Lost In Dreams' - now the artist, also known as Leure, returns with this new single, out now via Inertia Access, of smooth vocals and gentle pulsing beats.
OH MY MY - ANIMAL HOUSE (feat. Kitrich)
Debut solo single from Sydney producer Sam Thomlinson - also with the band Bad Pony - is a dark and hypnotic piece of pulsing EDM.
FLETCHER VALENTINE - SYNTHETIC
18-year-old Auckland, NZ-based songwriter shares infectious new track following last November's debut EP 'Infant Eyes', melding electric guitar, ambient synths, gentle processed drums, and tantalising vocal.
LEROY FRANCIS - GOING STEADY
Woozy lead track from the Sydney alt-indie rock multi-instrumentalist's just released debut EP, 'S.O.R.E'. Written after he had moved back to Australia from NYC. "I was living in an old shed on a farm for a while. It was run down and full of spiders and I would spend my nights watching horror films on a projector. Having no means of transport and kilometres away from other people was isolating and lonely but I knew my sweetheart was out there."
