Fresh off the release of her latest serving of idiosyncratic art-pop ‘fall’, we caught up with emerging songwriter and producer romæo to dig into some of the key influences that lead to the creation of her electrifying new single.
Nine years on from the rippling echoes of his previous album, Melbourne electronic artist Tom Briglia aka Sissysocks opens up another dimension through serene sonic landscapes on his third full-length Slink Away. We had the pleasure of catching up with Sissysocks who let us in on the shaping of the long-awaited new record.
Five years on from their colourful debut Perks, Melbourne’s adopted jangle trio Redspencer have returned with Dreamworld, the band’s latest foray into earnest, thoughtful and equally clever guitar-pop. Spanning genre and refreshing catharsis across its 13 tracks, we had Redspencer bandleader David McMillan talk us through the magic and wider themes behind Dreamworld.

We caught up with Marcus to get a better understanding of the meaning, inspiration and creation of this uniquely dark album experience.
