Everyone's favourite Brisbanites The John Steel Singers have today premiered a brand new single titled 'Can You Feel The Future' via Tone Deaf. The track comes from their forthcoming LP Midnight At The Plutonium set for release via the band's own record label Plutonium Records / Create Control later this year.
BROODS – FREE (Universal Music)
On their razor-sharp new single, BROODS’ frontwoman Georgia Nott wastes no time in making her intentions known: “I want your attention please, not your opinion.” With “Free” the anthemic first single from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album, co-written and co-produced with long-time collaborator and Grammy Award-winner Joel Little (Lorde, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding) the newly emboldened duo of Georgia and brother Caleb Nott build on the restrained, textural pop of their debut and amped up the intensity.
CARAVANA SUN - EYE OF THE STORM (The Right Profile)
Caravãna Sun headed West to Fremantle, WA and started recording album #3 with Joel Quartermain (Meg Mac) at the helm. This April they release the first single Eye Of The Storm from the forthcoming new album. "Eye Of The Storm represents the struggle of leading a life away from the person you love. While frustration, anxiety and angst mask your emotions, in the depths of your heart you’ll never let go” - Luke Carra (Vocals/Guitar)
OCEAN ALLEY- LEMONWORLD (Independent)
“Lemonworld” is the new song from this Sydney band’s soon to be released album “LOST TROPICS”. Ocean Alley have not slowed down from the release of their 2nd EP “In Purple” in August 2015. Well-‐received performances followed in 2016 at festivals including Party in the Paddock (TAS) and Mountain Sounds festival (NSW) before the boys embarked on their first international tour of New Zealand where they played 7 shows, selling out venues in Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Raglan and Auckland. They follow this up at the start of June with a tour of Europe through to the end of July. The boys wrote and recorded their debut album “Lost Tropics” while touring “In Purple” at the end of 2015. The new Album combines the bright moods of their first EP “Yellow Mellow” with the more refined, darker sound of “In Purple”. The First single “Holiday”, an ode to all things summer, has generated anticipation for the album slated for release in late Autumn 2016. WE CAN NOT WAIT TO GET OUR HANDS ON LOST TROPICS!
THE LAST SHADOW PUPPETS -EVERYTHING YOU'VE COME TO EXPECT (EMI Music Australia)
Whether or not we expected it, Everything You've Come to Expect has been a long time coming: to be exact, eight whole years since the release of The Last Shadow Puppets' debut album The Age of Understatement. "When someone pointed that out, I was like, 'Fucking hell, we're mennow!'" laughs Miles Kane, co-frontman of the Puppets with Alex Turner. "Our balls have dropped."
HOCKEY DAD - SO TIRED (Farmer & The Owl)
Fresh from shows at SXSW and the US west coast where Consequence of Sound described the duo as "One of the more exciting acts to pop up around this year’s South by Southwest". Hockey Dad has just released a new single 'So Tired' and announced their debut album 'Boronia'. The single is available now via Itunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and other digital outlets.

WINTERBOURNE - SHAPE (Universal Music Australia)
It’s been two years since WINTERBOURNE released their debut EP, All But the Sun, an earthy, intimate shot of neo-folk that peaked at Number Nine on the iTunes Album Charts and landed the duo a spot on NME.COM with lead single “Cold”. And now James Draper and Jordan Brady return with new single Shape.
Shape is the lead single from their forthcoming Pendulum EP (release date 27th May) and casts the band’s familiar harmonies against a driving, urgent backbeat.
OH PEP – DOCTOR DOCTOR (Remote Control Records)
Melbourne duo Oh Pep! have a HUGE year ahead of them. Having just signed to Dualtone Music Group (The Lumineers, Shakey Graves) in the US and announced a giant run of shows across Europe and America, they have now shared with us their incredible new single 'Doctor Doctor.'
'Doctor Doctor' is the first taste of an indie-pop masterpiece with the DNA of a folk record. Their obsession with great songs, regardless of genre, has led them to write and record an album with limitless horizons. Stadium Cake which is due for release in July 2016 is now available for pre-order in limited edition coloured vinyl!
Now both aged 24, Oh Pep!’s Olivia and Pepita will tour Europe for the first time in May and join the bill of a host of respected artists. In the summer they will tour extensively in support of this debut – Both at home in Australia and across North America.
