Music by Bergman: Cub Sport

2019 saw Cub Sport undergo a transformation from local indie band to global pop powerhouse. With sell out dates across 4 continents, and a community and message that is impacting lives worldwide, the prolific independent Brisbane group are forging their own path to global acclaim. The energy around Cub Sport is fearless and captures the uniquely vulnerable writing and vocal delivery that saw the group reach new heights on their 2019, self-titled album Cub Sport.

Set for release on 7th April, they have announced their new album ‘Jesus At The Gay Bar’, sharing new single ‘Keep Me Safe’.

Introducing…Mild Minds

The sound od Mild Minds is otherworldly, diverse and dynamic electronica that highlights this artist as one worth keeping an eye on. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Bonobo, Maribou State, Caribou and Four Tet, Mild Minds is the brainchild of Benjamin David.

“DEVOTION” is Mild Minds triumphant return to releasing new music in 2022. Following the release of his 2020 album MOOD, last year saw him release a string of singles “NO SKIN”, “MACHINE” and “HAUNTED” that further diversified the sound profile of his catalog.

Hit of The Week: Matt Corby ‘Problems’

Matt Corby, the multi-award winning Australian songwriter and producer has shared his new single “Problems.” The single comes out via his new UK label home Communion and is the first taste of new music from the artist since 2020’s stand-alone singles “If I Never Say A Word” and “Vitamin.” “Problems” was recorded at Matt’s Rainbow Valley Studios and co-produced with Chris Collins (Gang of Youths, Middle Kids, Skegss)

4Ever Songs: INXS ‘Need You Tonight’

Created mere months after the Roland TR-707’s 1985 debut, “Need You Tonight” was a massive smash. It hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1987 and two on the UK Singles Chart the same year. Sampled within an inch of its life, it’s as indelible a pop song as any ever released. Somehow “Need You Tonight” keeps bouncing back and still hits as hard as it did on its initial release.

In fact, the track, which was the initial single off the band’s record, Kick, has an ageless appeal. When an INXS documentary came out in 2014, the immortal track charted once again in Australia from download sales alone. 

Introducing…King Stingray

In its humble beginnings, King Stingray was just a do-it-yourself challenge – a couple of mates stewing up hot tunes in an equally hot part of the Northern Territory bush. Now, less than a year since they dropped their hooky debut single, Hey Wanhaka in October 2020, these five Yolŋu (Aboriginal) and balanda (non-Indigenous) lads from north-east Arnhem Land and Queensland have become one of Australia’s hottest new acts. In August 2021, King Stingray took out the enviable title of #1 Most Played Australian Track on triple j, for their accidental lockdown anthem, Get Me Out

This month, Yolŋu surf rockers King Stingray have unveiled their long-awaited debut album.

The muses of La Musa: Stella Donnelly 

Across her debut album, the Perth musician found herself tackling gender equality, sexual harassment and Australian nationalism, capturing a society in transition.

Three years on since the release of ‘Beware Of The Dogs’, Australia’s Stella Donnelly has announced that her new album ‘Flood’ will be out on 26th August via Secretly Canadian.

Music by Bergman: The Lazy Eyes

Roughly seven years after forming, the Sydney-based band is finally ready to drop their self-produced, self-recorded debut album, SongBook, in March. The collection is an escapist, idealistic, time-traveling journey that frolics in Beatles-flavored strawberry fields, trudges through heavy stoner sludge, and plays with the sort of effortless, heady sounds of artists like Tame Impala and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard who have made Australia this century’s hotbed for psych-rock. The band refers to their long-awaited debut as a trip down memory lane. Some songs were written nearly half a decade ago, after all—a lifetime in teenage years.
