Tune. New Sounds for an Energized Week: 7 Nov

GUM: Gemini

Gemini is the first song GUM recorded for his new album, Flash in the Pan, which is out on Friday. He says, “I’m not really a fan of star signs. It’s kind of a song about people pinning stuff happening in their lives on things like star signs and religion. I am a Gemini though, so there’s the bipolar/duality thing in there is as well.”

Flash in the Pan will no doubt be another delectable lesson in imagined synth flashbacks. We love this side project from Tame Impala / POND‘s multi-instrumentalist Jay Watson.

The Weeknd: Starboy feat. Daft Punk

Sometimes I’m human and actually miss the best songs ever, perhaps it’s because I am mostly sleep walking these days, floating on a cloud of responsibility and chatter. Starboy is a perfectly chilled and laid back collaboration between the Canadian singer songwriter and French electronic legends Daft PunkThe Weeknd‘s 3rd album of the same name is out now.

Leikeli47: Money

We first shared this song in September. The Money video sees masked rapper Leikeli47 make her directorial debut. In 2016 47’s been making some cool out front moves with some of her tracks recently featured in major campaigns – Jimmy Choo’s 20th Anniversary TVC and Madden NFL 17 (‘Girl Gang’); and Victoria’s Secret’s ‘Sexy Little Things’ commercial (‘C&C’).

Future: Used to This feat. Drake

Aanysa X Snakehips: Burn, Break, Crash

17-year-old singer, dancer, and songwriter, Aanysa has teamed with DJ duo Snakehips on ‘Burn, Break, Crash’  the lead single off of her debut album, due out next year.

Aanysa brings a combination of 90’s Pop, R&B and nu-disco. To the flo’.

Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall: Juju On That Beat

The video for viral dance sensation ‘JuJu On That Beat (TZ Anthem)’ from Detroit teens Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall features the distinctive dance moves which have captivated audiences and spawned thousands of parodies. Stars including basketballer Shaquille O’Neal and actor The Rock have posted their takes on the video, while LeBron James shared his son performing the now-famous moves. It’s an ear worm.

Yeo: Frost

Featuring drums from bandmate Andrew Congues and mixed by Haxx at JoyLuck Studios, Frost is about “the extreme gravity you sometimes feel when there’s an unresolved issue between you and your lover. You want to sort it out as soon as possible”

Yeo is set to perform shows alongside Black Milk and Elliphant during Melbourne Music Week and will then hit the studio to write his next release due in 2017.
