Premiere: The Wandering Lost Look To The Past With New Single ‘Kaleidoscope Eyes’

There’s nothing like a university deadline to inspire ingenuity, and we’re betting Brissie rockers The Wandering Lost scored high when they turned in their new single Kaleidoscope Eyes for marking. Kaleidoscope Eyes combines the vocal stylings of Adele, Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald, with sounds similar to Stonefield and John Mayer, to take listeners on a whimsical journey through the past. “Kaleidoscope Eyes was inspired by youth and naivety. I feel like I was incredibly naïve about a lot of different things throughout high school and looking back I realise how many mistakes I made – so this song...

Aiden Bradley is used to making music with others, but this year he’s decided to go it alone and release his first solo single Siege.

Premiere: Byron Short & The Sunset Junkies Transport Listeners To The American South With New Track ‘Tunica’

Byron Short & The Sunset Junkies are bringing music to our ears this Christmas in July, gifting us a tune from their upcoming album Revelations, which is due out next month. Inspired by the music of the American South, the band’s new track Tunica, paints a sonic picture of the small Mississippi town of the same name, and the experiences frontman Byron Short had there. “Gambling is illegal in The state of Mississippi but Tunica is a riverside town so they’ve built big casinos out over the river to avoid the anti-gambling laws. It’s like a little Las Vegas...
