Tune. New Sounds for the Week: 2 Feb

Tourist: To Have You Back

Here is the stunning new video from Grammy award-winning producer Tourist for his single To Have You Back.

Directed by Davy Evans (The XX and Zomby) and Jason Drew (Thom Yorke/Modskeletor), the video uses minimal CGI still life white landscapes and bold colour which brings the multi-layered electronica of the single to life. A triumph.

Watch it here:


Ecca Vandal: End of Time EP


Melbourne talent Ecca Vandal dropped her debut EP End Of Time last Friday, without any prior announcement, which is exactly her style.

The EP features the current single End Of Time and Battle Royal as well as 3 brand new tracks. Described as having a ‘unique perspective on Australian art and culture’, South African-born with Sri Lankan heritage, Ecca Vandal has captured the attention of our music industry with her artistry, ‘approach and swag of influences.’

Her national debut Headline Tour fires up on February 20 in Perth and will travel through Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney. Listen to the EP here.


Fascinator: Time to Go

We ran this new track a few weeks back, and now we have the video to go with it. It’s a great song that will put you in a productive trance. The new album Man is OUT NOW.


Basement: Aquasun

Announced as Triple J’s album of the week, Promise Everything was released last Friday. It’s a welcome return after they announced an indefinite hiatus in 2012, weeks after the release of their debut album Colourmeinkindness. Though they were out of action Basement went on to gain an intensely devoted ‘posthumous’ following. Promise Everything heralds the UK band’s return to full-length writing and recording since the break.

Aquasun is the second single from the new album, and video was directed and filmed by guitarist Alex Henery.

Basement are set to return to Australia in May with special guests Turnover and Break Even.


Tiga: Planet E feat. Hudson Mohawke

Montreal techno legend Tiga is back with a Hudson Mohawke collaboration in the name of Planet E. It’s an instant dance floor staple in its sleek simplicity and is lifted from the forthcoming album No Fantasy Required, set for release on March 4th. It will be Tiga’s first record in 7 years.



Leon Bridges: River

Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and R&B artist Leon Bridges shared his music video for his song River’ today. Bridges makes powerful use of visuals for his ‘elegiac, Gospel-inspired’ song ‘River’ to send a message of hope. The video, directed by Miles Jay, pulls inspiration from real events taking place across the United States.


Gunns: Who’s Gonna Be Your Dog

Dreamy surf-pop WA band, Gunns have shared their new single  Who’s Gonna Be Your Dog. It’s such an easy track the listen to, with all its joy-laden layers. On every listen I find it very hard not to hop inside the track, and forget about whatever it was that may have been a nuisance. But let’s not get too comfy – Gunns are about to join The Strokes legend Albert Hammond Jnr. on his first ever Australian headline tour, before unveiling their debut EP She’s A Rainbow, on February 12.
