Friday Fresh Five #011: Pink Matter, Sophiegrophy, Elle Watson

Thats right, we’re bringing back the Friday Fresh Five to let you in on the best emerging talent across Australia and the World.

Pink Matter (Brisbane)

Pink Matter are a all girl four-piece from Brisbane who are taking the local scene by storm. Their effortlessly cool neo-soul sound is refreshingly original; the girls are best when deep into a soulful ballad or churning out some dance heavy grooves.

This versatile group has already seen quite a successful year in 2017 with supporting slots for WALLACE and Sex on Toast, before touring with The Creases in January this year. Keep an eye out for new material from Pink Matter, who are set to release an EP pretty soon.

Syrup, Go On (Gold Coast)

Gold Coast five-piece Syrup, Go On have been around for a few years now, but recent EP Joyful Hesitation has brought the post punk band to new light. Influenced by bands like Violent Soho, Syrup, Go On have a unique take on the post punk genre.

With both male and female vocals, the group show a range of sounds in their new EP, with tracks like “Mantaray” showing the band at their most melodic, whilst their cover of Violent Soho’s “Waco” demonstrates the group’s more guitar heavy influences. These guys are definitely one to watch.

Seaside (Byron Bay)

Byron Bay band Seaside are making a pretty great impression with their dream pop melodies. A Seaside track sounds like a sleepy day on the beach. Their tracks are so catchy you’ll be singing along straight away to frontwoman Darcy’s sultry vocals.

The band are starting of the year strong with a seven date tour, which you can find info for on their Facebook page.

Sophiegrophy (Melbourne)

Sophiegrophy lets the music speak for itself. Whether intentional or not, there is an air of mystery around the talented Melbourne rapper, who lets little known about herself. Don’t be fooled by her entrances on her tracks, Sophiegrophy knows how to spit fire verses, wowing audiences when she played FOMO this year.

Her features on tracks by Walker & Royce and Airwolf have cemented the rapper as one of the most in demand female emcees in the country, so watch this space.

Elle Watson (London)

London based singer songwriter Elle Watson has been captivating audiences with her intensely personal, emotional music. Now in her early 20s, Elle has been writing music since she was 14, which shows in her mature song writing. Watson’s songs often centre around darker themes such as loss and grief, met with haunting vocals.

She’s definitely one to watch, already garnering massive buzz in the industry after working with Vince Staples and ASAP Rocky producer Clams Casino.
