“dread ahead” – Jack Slade
The debut single from the newly launched project of South Australian singer/songwriter and producer Jack Slade, “dread ahead” exhales heavy, heartbreak vapour into the indie electronica air. A crushing mix of acoustic and electronic percussion, saturation drenched vocals and filtering guitar plucks, keep your ears fixed on the newest member of the Future Classic roster as he’s set to make a lasting imprint in the next few months.
“Better Than” – Flaws & On Planets
A collaboration born oceans apart, “Better Than” combines the twinkling production of Canadian artist, On Planets with the earnest, smoky vocals of Dutch singer/songwriter, Flaws. Released as part of the latest bitbird compilation “Gouldian Finch 4”, the duo’s mix of clean and distorted tones conceives a wistful sonic narrative that represents both of their individual styles to immaculate effect.
“Partner in Crime” – Lucy Dacus
One third of supergroup boygenius alongside Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker, “Partner in Crime” is taken from American singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus’ third studio album, Home Video. Auto-tuned vocals, cascading synths and lush spacey guitars build to a crunching guitar solo that while heavily distorted, wraps itself around your ears in transcendent shoegaze glory.
“Acaena” – Roby
Lush, experimental soundscapes bounce along a hopscotch beat in the mystery producer Roby’s latest.
“Broken Wings” – ARIA, KDDK, G Herbo
An impressive guest appearance from G Herbo strengthens this emotional track from DC rapper ARIA and Russian artist KDDK.
“Too Much” – Arula
Singer-songwriter Arula finds her inner sensuality in her dark ambient-pop ballad “Too Much,” a sultry ode to defying the confines of society’s expectations.
“Wax” – Aurelia
Confronting heavy topics such as PTSD and depression, Aurelia exposes the most raw and vulnerable parts of herself in this powerful tune.
