Best new tracks Down Under #49

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.


Sydney artist MARSHES is back with her new electro-pop tune 'Beaches',  which was co-produced with long-time collaborator Xavier Dunn, with Thief (Jessica Mauboy, Noah Cyrus). Glitchy beats traverse just under four-minutes paired with warming vocal.


Sydney five-piece Kintsugi are back with their second single, 'BOY'. Produced by JOY. and Chris Collins (Gangs of Youths, Middle Kids), they fuse subtle electro-pop sounds with a drizzle of RnB. 


Auckland, NZ-based, UK-born singer deryk released her much praised debut EP ‘WOMb’ just two months ago, and now follows it with this new self-produced number. ‘Brains’, she says, is "about being so fascinated by somebody's intellect and sense of self that you’d just like to be them for a day, just to experience them from the core and understand. It’s funny that society puts so much pressure on physical appearance when in reality if you meet somebody who is immaculate but with terrible morals it kind of cancels out their beauty, nobody wants to connect with that… unless ego is involved.” 


Perth five-piece The Atlas State follow up their April released self-titled debut EP, with this new indie-rock outing. The robust 'See You Anyway' blends an intricate production work with layers of synth, and psych-slanted instrumentation. “The song draws upon personal experience and it is injected with passion and melancholy. It’s a full and immersive listening experience, and sinks into a pillow of driven psychedelia," say the band. 


Sydney's Lamalo - producer duo Michiya  Nagai and  Yossi Cascun - have dropped their latest offering 'Sunrise Reprise' - a reprise being a mash-up of older live songs that the duo miss performing. The studio track meshes together exciting digital arpeggios with glitchy beats and a bassline that echoes the Mellotron magic of dance music's formative pioneers.
