Man, they sure do make 'em young these days, don't they? 16 year old Rachel Costanzo may be still in her teens, but to listen to her catchy and energetic pop music, you'd be mistaken to think she'd be playing club nights already. The Melbourne singer-songwriter has already penned her debut EP and is prepping it for release and can safely count numerous American performances under her belt already. With her latest single "Starlight", that youthful energy is interpreted well in a great slice of club-friendly pop.

Sydney's Caitlin Park is back with her third single from album The Sleeper. "Wake Up In A Whirr" tells the story of a damaging relationship in all its dark glory.
Alice Springs artist Ben Allen, aka Broadwing, has been on the AU's radar for some time, but when we recently saw him perform up in Darwin as part of the Original Recipe Music Festival, we really tuned in to the great music he was producing. An eclectic songwriter unafraid of playing with tone and musical texture, Allen has also demonstrated a talent as an illustrator as well. Such skills are on display in the new Broadwing film clip for "Commerce", one the AU is excited to premiere for you exclusively, today.
Backing up their announcement of an Australian tour this morning, Bombay Bicycle Club present the film clip for their latest tune, "Come To".

Give it a spin and get excited for their September tour dates!
All music videos should be like this; simple yet freakishly brilliant. This Brisbane quartet make King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard sound like the tightest band around, yet the ragged charm of "Head of the Witch" is what makes it so likeable.
"Heart Beats Slow" is the first single taken from Angus & Julia Stone's self-titled album, due out on August 1.

Steve Smyth's new single "Written Or Spoken" follows the rollicking "Shake It", both lifted from his debut album which will be released on September 5th. Try watching this and not saying 'Wow'.
Produced by the legendary Paul 'Woody' Annison and directed by Bianca Milani, the video for Villainettes' latest single, "Diamonds" is remnant of a burlesque house gone awry (in the best way possible). Their distinct sound immediately grabs you, rife with bombastic beats and glistening melodies, Villainettes are one to watch.
"Have You Seen My Son?" is the second single from New Orleans native Benjamin Booker's debut album, which is due for release on August 15th. An electrifying mix of garage-rock, punk and soul flavours from the Deep South, this song marks Booker as one to watch.
