Montaigne drops new single I Am Not An End

MONTAIGNE

Montaigne (aka. Jessica Cerro) was a Triple J Unearthed High finalist in 2012. She didn’t win, but since then she’s been turning out some pretty stunning music. I Am Not An End is the second single off her forthcoming EP, Life of Montaigne. It follows I’m A Fantastic Wreck which pricked up ears last month. It’s a stings-driven number that revolves around Cerro’s sunshine-induced voice. She’s got the quick-wit of Lily Allen with the pop quirks of somebody like Regina Spektor. Australia is desperately in need of a new left-of-centre pop queen and Montaigne could be it. This is a very strong debut.

Collarbones release free EP ‘Atlantis 2014’

Sydney/Adelaide duo, Collarbones are probably making the most innovative RnB music in Australia at the moment. Following 2012’s fantastic Die Young LP, the pair have released the free, Atlantis 2014 EP. Like most of their work, it’s a layered and introverted soundscape that borrows from contemporary RnB and electronica. As the title suggests, Atlantis 2014 is a world of its own built on lush synths, pulsating beats and sparse melodies. Lead-vocalist Marcus Whale leads the way with his dulcet tones and runs while his partner in crime , Travis Cook, engulfs it in a hazy atmosphere. It’s pretty startling stuff.

Collarbones will take to Sydney’s Seymour centre as part of Vivid Festival on 6 June with Synergy Percussion. You can grab your tickets here.

Big Scary lead-singer Tom Iansek releases ‘Return To’

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 11.39.18 am

It seems half of Australian-duo Big Scary, Tom Iansek, has been a busy man. Aside from wrapping up a US tour with Big Scary, he’s just announced a new solo album under the moniker of #1 Dads. The album, About Face, has today been preceded by its first single, Return To. The song is a sparse, experimental track that layers with sporadic keys and a metronome back-beat. Iansek’s haunting vocal sits atop steering the song through an unpredictable yet enchanting melody. About Face will be released through Big Scary’s Pieater label on 8 August.

Hear the track over at FasterLouder.

Newcomer Kyan drops ‘Taking The City’

RnB singer Kyan is quickly becoming an interns favourite. We were enamoured by his song, Shuttle, and now he’s just dropped a new track, Taking the City. Taking The City has been lifted from his forthcoming EP, Days In A Triangle, which is set to be released on 14 July. It sees Kyan further craft out his sonic identity with velvety, Frank Ocean-esque verses and beefed up chorus. All the while it tips its hat to iconic 80s rock ensuring the song screams into a mighty finish.

Four Tet Remixes Sia’s ‘Chandelier’

SIA_press-shot-1_low-res

It’s a hard job taking on one of the most euphoric pop songs of the year but British producer Four Tet has done a mighty job with Sia’s Chandelier. This time it seems Sia is not swinging from the Chandelier but being tossed into an alternate universe, one created by sparkling keys and a hip-hop inspired beat. Despite the song being turned on its head, Sia’s unbelievable chorus still sounds as huge as ever. Four Tet just adds some extra edge as if to take it from the hands of Commercial Radio and plop it in Triple J’s lap.
