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.
JAGUAR JONZE - MURDER
Deena Lynch, aka Brisbane's Jaguar Jonze's turned out some stunners this year, like 'Rabbit Hole'. Her latest single 'Murder' is a seductive pop outing, filled with a dark, brooding atmosphere. It comes ahead of new EP, 'Anti-Hero', to be released shortly. “‘Murder’ is about when a relationship gets pushed beyond a boundary that should’ve never been crossed and why we ever thought that was a good idea," she says. "Wishing that we could go back to where it was before that line was crossed but knowing we’re both guilty of having made that decision to, put grimly, ‘kill’ that relationship.” Facebook
ROMERO - TROUBLEMAKER
Mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring), Melbourne power-pop group Romero offer another gem of soulful verses layered with shimmering riffs. Lead vocalist Alanna Oliver says the song arrived "after a conversation I was having with my mum about a girl I knew... we both came to the conclusion that she was in love with my boyfriend and my mother called her a troublemaker! I hung up the phone immediately, pulled over my car and started writing these lyrics."
