PRICIE – FRIENDZONE (Feat. Genesis Owusu)
This is a very smooth offering from PRICIE, that sees the Australian artist team up with fellow artist Genesis Owusu on a track that offers a smooth, slick exploration of a situation witnessed by PRICIE herself, where a friend was playing the friendzone game – all in the form of ‘FRIENDZONE‘. The strongest aspect of this song is the onpoint lyrical rendition of the aforementioned situation and the interpretation. Good stuff.
Erin Foster – Birthday
As far as rebrandings go, Erin Foster‘s debut solo single under her new moniker – having previously gone by Karamilk – is pretty solid. ‘Birthday‘ sees the pop artist take what she previous had and spice it up, with more bright, euphoric sounds and glittery aesthetics.
Eilish Gilligan – Up All Night
Eilish continues to grow stronger in many ways with every new release. Not only is she a favourite here at Eat This Music, ‘Up All Night‘ solidifies the fact that her vocals are on point and the world of music grows around her with ease.
Circe – Going Down
Bayleigh Cheek – Release Me
Loving everything Bayleigh Cheek has to offer with “Release Me”: the vibes, soothing vocals, sublime instrumentals and the atmosphere to boot. Solid work.
The Buoys – Bad Habit
Great, great, great song. Everything about this new one from The Buoys is great – aesthetics, lyrics, vocals, visuals, instrumentals, everything. I like it a lot and the visual aspect of the song looked like a lot of fun to make.
Quivers – Chinese Medicine
This is a very nice song from Melbourne-via-Tasmanian four-piece, Quivers. Aesthetically ‘Chinese Medicine‘ is a beautiful, soothing anthem. Lyrically the song touches on the story of the feeling you get when you are running away from things and find other people doing the same.
Erika de Casier – Busy
The visual journey of this song reminds me of a project that a student would make in a communications class, although, with that said, Erika’s Busy is a real beaut, and it encapsulates various prominent features in her work: slow burning instrumentals, euphoric, overarching vocals and a solid foundation of lyrical wit. Great track allround!
Julia Bardo – Do This To Me
This is a really smoove song and I want to hear more of Julia’s music in the future. Her vocals are on point and the overall presentation of ‘Do This To Me’ is colourful, bright and attractive.
Sleater-Kinney – Worry With You
Every time I hear a new Sleater-Kinney song it just continues to remind me of how much I miss the TV series Portlandia, and how much fun it looked like Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney was having. I guess Sleater-Kinney’s new album, due out 18th June and subsequently this new song, will suffice for now.
