This clip accompanies “Not To Worry” by Elk Road featuring Governors, and if ever the visual aspect of a music video have complemented the audio to perfection, it’s in this one.

Teaming up with Megan Washington once more, Ferguson's new single conjures the romanticised images of the South Seas and the rhythmic ebbs and flows of the waves lapping against some idyllic and golden beaches.
Jordan Millar has long been a favourite with AU staff, the charismatic songwriter and performer always making an impact whenever we happen to catch him performing live. Regardless of the stage, Millar's music presents itself as a great fusion of rhythm, lyricism and depth - his narratives are heartfelt and after releasing two albums and a series of EPs through his career, the sonic development Millar has demonstrated through 2015 has been a natural progression as opposed to any unprecedented jut out into another direction. His latest single, "True Or Nothing", is another example.
Brisbane duo Walken have recently dropped the music video for their grunge-soaked tune "Even if it Kills Me" - a single that positions the band alongside the likes of fellow Queenslanders Violent Soho, The Smith Street Band and others in the crop of Aussies who have been flying the flag for music that is good to thrash, dance, drink and party to.

US late night talk shows are a showcase of all-things celebrity, politics, humor, comedy and music. They are often treated as the final thing we see before we go to sleep.
