Best new tracks Down Under #44


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.


Brisbane-based singer-songwriter delivers an entrancing, pulsing pop confection, augmented by pristine production, that is sweetly infectious. Following the recent 'Are You Down?', this latest cut she describes as "the most honest writing I've done so far and my personal favourite."


Melbourne-based punk-rockers Picket Palace released this tongue-in-cheek, Parquet Courts-esque 'All About The Money' at the end of October. Thrashing guitars and fast-paced percussion add to the three-minute infectious stomp.



The debut outing from new indie-synthpop Melbourne duo, Ultra Passion - Noni and Jules - who formed only this year during the first Covid-19 lockdown. Taken from their upcoming EP - due in January - the self-produced track fuses an 80s groove, with lustrous synths and velvet smooth vocals, working in tandem to create “a melodic release of raw passion and soul inspired by dysfunctional young love." GLASS TOWERS - NOBODY WALKS IN LA 

Sydney's Glass Towers, originally the solo project of frontman Benjamin Hannam, drop their follow up to 'I Will Come Back For You' released in August. "The song deals with feelings of loneliness, how someone can feel completely alone despite being constantly surrounded by so many people while travelling or just day to day," says Hannam of the vibrant and buzzy synth-driven number. 



After her 'BIRYANI' debut in April, Melbourne artist ASHWARYA is already dropping her third bubbling single of the year, 'COMIN@ME', that stands out with its hip-hop/pop cross beats. "'COMIN@ME' takes you through the toxic cycle of constantly coming back to someone who betrayed you and continues to hurt you," she says. "The song calls for confrontation, which eventually leads to the downfall of the relationship. The end of the song is me at my most vulnerable, showing that regardless of the pain this person has inflicted, it will always be challenging to let them go for good."
