Five hot new tracks for your ears - ft. plts, tabrill, midnight pool party, elkkle & lamalo
PLTS – Spill
‘Spill’ is an impressive slice of 90s-esque indie-rock, combining vibrant guitar licks, punchy basslines and emotionally-charged vocals. An ode to the trials and tribulations of young love, the single commands the listener’s attention from the touch of play, opening with gripping drumbeat that remains throughout the song. The track switches effortlessly between compelling verses and anthemic choruses, and demonstrates the Byron Bay trio's ability to consistently produce indie-rock hits.
TABRILL – Lossless (ft. Emily)
Next up, Brisbane-based producer Tabrill takes us on a sonic journey with new single ‘Lossless'. Delicate electronic soundscapes and hypnotising beats collide with the dreamy vocals of a mysterious songstress named ‘Emily’. Each element fuses together beautifully, further complimented by the scattering of eclectic sound effects. Overall, the track demonstrates this young producer’s ability to compose impeccable indie-electronic cuts.
MIDNIGHT POOL PARTY – Signals
Sydney-based beatmakers, Midnight Pool Party, bring the summer vibes with latest single ‘Signals'. Mellow synthesisers open the track and float along effortlessly, melding perfectly with the smooth croons of lead vocalist Morilla, whilst a consistent beat transfixes the listener in a dreamy soundscape, building slowly throughout the song and peaking in the latter half. The song is yet another excellent production from the indie-electronic duo.
ELKKLE – Frails (pictured)
Obscure instrumentation and eclectic beats set the scene for this intriguing composition. Elkkle’s signature raw vocals work in unison with scarce (yet pronounced) synthesisers, further enhanced by ethereal production. ‘Frails’, lifted off the producer’s forthcoming debut album Kitsune, skilfully combines themes of indie-electronica and R&B, proving the young producer’s ability to deliver dynamic, electronic cuts.
LAMALO – Come Over (ft. Hayden Buchanan)
‘Come Over’ is instantly impressionable, making a grand entrance with the undeniable talent of featured vocalist Hayden Buchanan. Careful not to clutter the composition, Lamalo introduce soothing synthesisers, which dance curiously around minimal beats and leave the vocals front and centre. The Sydney-based duo successfully incorporate digital and acoustic instrumentation, resulting in a gleaming indie-electro track that retains pop sensibilities.
