Single of the Day: Owen Rabbit "Holy Holy" (2015)

Melbourne multi-instrumentalist and all round talented lad Owen Rabbit has recently released his new single "Holy Holy" this week - another fusion of jazz, soul and electronica that is going to be something we think you're going to dig. Rabbit has just been announced to be supporting SAFIA on their national tour in September so no doubt his name is going to get some excellent exposure and it's well deserved - the musician is definitely on to something special.

Music Video of the Day: Gang of Youths "Magnolia" (2015)

Gang Of Youths have, as of last night, kicked off their huge round of Australian shows, but not before releasing the official music video for their tune "Magnolia" - easily one of the stand out tunes on their brilliant debut album, The Positions. The clip's premise is simple enough: the camera tracks David Le'aupepe as we walks down a (mostly) deserted street alone for the most part, riling himself up with the lyrics of the song, detailing loss, loneliness and recovery. The result is ultimately raw and arresting however, and makes for a great watch.

The album doesn't come out until next month but still, this is a sick little insight into the type of tunes we can expect from the band.

Recently having its premiere on Triple J, the tune has been long-awaited for Wave Racer fans, as he's been spending recent months killing it on the live front overseas.

In his single "The Inner West Misses You", Yau has penned an ode to his hometown, the Sydney stomping ground he's experienced so much in.

Our Artist of the Month for August, the Brisbane band have been consistently proving their worth as one of the country's best live bands to come out of the east coast and in latest tune "Kooky Eyes", they've brought the fun and entertaining energy they're now renowned for through strongly in their music once more.

Single of the Day: Little Fox “Edits” (2015)

After supporting the likes of Megan Washington, Hey Geronimo and The Chemist, Sydney’s Little Fox has released a new single in "Edits".
