Tune. New Sounds for the Week: 12 Apr

Need some uptempo good to march you through the week? We’ve got this. Most exciting for us is the release of Clairy Browne’s solo album ‘Pool’ on Friday, and news of so many great tours, including Groovin the Moo Festival and the lineup announcement for Splendour in the Grass on Wednesday (which had better include Miike Snow, BTW).


Clairy Browne: Love Song to The World

Love Song To The World is the latest single from Clairy Browne‘s debut solo album, Pool, which is officially released on April 15.

‘This is a song for everyone, for all genders and races to revel in the right to love whomever they want.’

The Australian singer (pictured at top, photo by John Tsiavis) describes Love Song To The World as ‘a universal anthem celebrating all the lovers out there…holding up all the diverse beauty of humanity in every shape and form for us to adore. This is a song for everyone, for all genders and races to revel in the right to love whomever they want.’ Clairy has also said that the more she listens to and sings this song, the more it is stuck in her heart. Actually the more you hear it, the more your mood improves, for sure. It’s hard not to get caught up in the 90s RnB ness of it all, really. If you like that sort of thing (which I DO).

MS MR: Wrong Victory

New York- and LA-based duo MS MR  are preparing for their return to Australia in April/ May for a headline tour and Groovin the Moo dates. We’re loving this mesmerizing new music video for Wrong Victory, the latest song from their How Does It Feel album.

The video shows a rotating Lizzy Plapinger (MS) and Max Hershenow (MR), concealed under numerous layers of costumes and makeup, which they peel off as the song progresses, until at last, their true identities are revealed. It was directed by Mafalda Millies. Of the video, MS MR says,

‘We’ve been dreaming of this video ever since we finished writing ‘Wrong Victory’. The heart of the song is about the struggle and tension in attempting to escape yourself in order to find your truest self. We wanted to linger on the lyric “When your skin doesn’t feel like home” and use it as an opportunity to literally and figuratively explore the masks we wear and the layers we hide behind until we’re left to our most raw form.’

Mike Simonetti: Release Your Body To The Best / Slave

I haven’t been to a bonafide ‘nightclub’ for ages, but apparently it’s rare to hear an acid track with vocals these days. It is possible to still enjoy the music, without having to stand in queues in the middle of the night (as I’ve discovered). New Jersey based producer Mike Simonetti, makes it easy.

On this double, Santana of French group Claap! features as guest vocalist, coaxing the listener “come to me” on minimal acid tweaker ‘Release,’ and on ‘Slave’ floating above an intensely hypnotic rhythm in francophone whisperings.

The two releases are also accompanied by a Claap! remix of ‘Slave,’ taking the track into brooding and percussive new territory, and satisfying any sudden urges for an at-home catwalk challenge.


The Hiding: Karma My Life

Melbourne indie electro-pop act The Hiding released their new single, Karma My Life late last week. The song was inspired by the true life experience of lead singer Anthony Salce, and visually interpreted  by masterful Italian sand artist, Fatmir Mura.  It fuses Fatmir’s signature live, hand-crafted sand images to artistically tell the story behind Karma My Life. The song was produced by Ryan Ritchie

The Hiding is Anthony Salce (vocals, guitar, synths), Ryan Di Cecco (bass), Tom Moore (drums), Stewart Winchester (guest lead vocals) and Chris Salce (keys).
