    CAITLYN SCARLETT – Shangri-La – You’re an amazing talent, love your ingenuity, unique style and amazing vocal ability! Exploratory and adventurous, full of energy and colour,LOVE IT!

    THE CLEAR – When You Are Far Away – Love love love the vintage aura – this is so sweet 60s. A little bit Doors, a teeny bit John Barry, and a lot bloomin’ gorge!

    CPNHGN – In Motion – Bass perfection, strong vocals, sharp guitar grizzle and no shit drumming. Looking forward to seeing you headline the Olympia! C’mon the Dubs!

    GHOSTS OF SOCIAL NETWORKS – Outside The Wheel – You didn’t get a songwriting accolade for nothing! This is fantastic! Applause.

    MOTIONS – All I’ve Ever Known – Smokey vocals, hypnotic guitars, lush bass and punchy percussion. Gr8 lyrics, dizzying melodies, you’ve nailed the whole boomerang effect of ‘coming back to you’ – ACE!

  32. These w I’ll be on my in work playlist for this week:

    CAITLYN SCARLETT – Shangri-La Haunting riff threads through this in a bit of an 80s TFF vein, but very now as well. Deserves the attention it’s getting.
    THE CLEAR – When You Are Far Away Just lovely. A songwriting trio. I’ll be back for more of them
    EMMA MILLER – Burning Out Lovely voice, great production and chilled feel to this.
    GAPTOOTH – Terminal 4 Individual lyrics. Great tune and production too, but the words drew me in and kept me listening.
    THE LOVELY DAYS – Mornington Polished pop music from this Aussie band. Well crafted catchy, jangly stuff.
