Little Simz and her backing group found the time to stop by Triple J to belt through a fairly faithful rendition of the Gorillaz stone cold classic Feel Good Inc.
It’s a pretty true-to-the-original cover, but given Simz manages to not only smash the vocals out of the park, but keep the unmistakable bass line solid as well, it’s worthy of significant praise.
There is no doubt that Australia has been and is one of the places where there’s more music talent like Tame Impala, King Gizzard & The Lizzard Wizzard, Jet or the young singer-songwriter from Melbourne who will visit Vida Festival 2019: Didirri. With just a couple of singles and a just-released EP, Measurements (Unified, 2018), Didirri aroused the interest of such influential media as Triple J, among others. All this thanks to his passionate and tender folk-pop that rises with strength in its direct sweepers with songs like “Jude” or “Blind You”. A jewel to discover and enjoy.
This indie dance duo is a big deal in its home country. They were nominated by ruling youth radio station Triple J for an “Unearthed” award when the band made its break in 2010. They opened for Australian dance pop queen Kylie Minogue, which is like opening for Madonna basically. They’ve got a glorious handle on lush composition and feel-good summer waves on a level that is completely lovable, and the duo’s third album Virtual Islands is a delicious gift.
