New Music for your ears, including the latest tracks from Green Buzzard, Dope Lemon, Jake Bugg & More
GREEN BUZZARD - ‘(I Don’t Wanna) Break Your Heart’ ( I OH YOU)
We are thrilled to present ‘(I Don’t Wanna) Break Your Heart’, the first single from Green Buzzard’s debut EP ‘Easy Queezy Squeezy’ (Out 1 April 2016).
‘(I Don’t Wanna) Break Your Heart’ (Out Feb 25) cements Green Buzzard’s ability to leave some dirt on the songwriting diamond. Tying colourful sounds with optimistic foresight, the band create an ode to not falling in love to the backdrop of jagged guitars and ‘we’re not just here to make up the numbers’ keyboards. Essentially delivering what journalists in the olden days used to call ‘a knockout punch’, it’s just a really good song by a really good band.
A heady mix of downbeat soul undertones and an undeniable song writing charm, the single not only indicates exactly what this young band has to offer sonically, but gives listeners a tasty preview in to what to expect from the upcoming ‘Easy Queezy Squeezy’ EP.

KIT - HOW HARD (Marshmallow Pavement Records)
KIT returns with her second single, “How Hard”, following the success of her last. “Goodbye”, released in June 2015, was spun on triple j Good Nights, 2015 with Richard Kingsmill and Home & Hosed with Dom Alessio. It featured for 2 weeks in the AMRAP charts, reaching number 3 overall, and held the number 1 spot on triple j unearthed for 3 weeks.
“How Hard” being released this February via Marshmallow Pavement Records is a R&B-infused, pulsing track, characterised by the undeniable strength of Kate Watt’s vocals. Finding inspiration to create the song through retelling the experiences of those closest to her, Kate found catharsis of her own.
BORNEO - EATING ANIMALS - (GD FRNDS)
With the moon rising in Australian punk rock, a jangly, alt-rock rainbow of colour and disco conformity appears. The Sydney five-piece Borneo are birthed from said musically, natural cataclysmic event. Branding a style of grounded, humourous personalities and the indie-rock sensationalism of a David Byrne, Borneo have little to prove in this big world.
A mindful, reflective mood is present beneath all the fun in new single 'Eating Animals'. The unflinching presence of an effective songwriting undercurrent built into the already raucous indie-rainbow-rock framework has allowed the boys to flesh out the Borneo sound to its rightful potential.
WEEZER - THANK GOD FOR GIRLS (Atlantic Records)
Thank God for Girls is the first taste of Weezer’s 10th self-titled (White) album, out 1st April. The first track from the highly anticipated album has charted across multiple genres and is currently sitting in the top 10 at US alternative radio. In addition, the band recently announced a massive 40+ city nationwide U.S. co-headlining summer tour with Panic! At The Disco that is already selling out markets.
FRIGHTENED RABBIT –GET OUT (Atlantic Records)
Produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner, the tune is from the band’s fifth studio album ‘Painting of a Panic Attack’ which is to be released in the 9th of April. Dessner had to say about the record, “Great songwriters touch a nerve, and I think Scott really touches a nerve with these songs. To me, lyrically, this album is a step above anything he’s written before.”
DOPE LEMON –UPTOWN FOLKS (EMI Music Australia)
Angus Stone’s new project ‘Honey Bones’, recorded in a cabin on his farm, is tracked with some of his close friends around Australia playing in bands with the singer of The Walking Who (Rohin Brown) on guitar & also the singer of The Delta Riggs (Elliot Hammond) on keys. Angus talks about the delicious new track ‘Uptown Folks’ saying how, 'We have to get back to the garden, being a symbol of all good things starting & ending in this place.’ He sings about the things in between going on in the world & it's delirious nature.
