Playlist – Smoke Rings bring happiness
Melbourne five-piece Smoke Rings recently dropped their latest single, ‘Happiness’. Recorded with producer extraordinaire, Malcolm Besley (City Calm Down, The Creases, Northeast Party House), the bittersweet new tune is taken from their double A-side 7″ Go To Hell and gives a big nod to 90’s Britpop. Check it out here…

SASKWATCH – DECEMBER NIGHTS
Saskwatch are an Aussie act we got into recently and just can’t enough of this catchy tune.
ROLLING BLACKOUTS C.F – FRENCH PRESS
Rolling Blackouts can’t write a bad song, stick this one on repeat when your driving 🙂
ALVVAYS – MARRY ME ARCHIE
When we lived in Canada, Lauren’s old work friend mentioned they played in a band. Turns out they were called Alvvays and happened to be really really good. This is one of the best chorus’s, such a simple, beautiful song…makes us happy.
KURT VILE – WAKIN’ ON A PRETTY DAZE
Super chill song that was our summer soundtrack a few years back. This song coasts along so nicely and never loses it’s charm.
DIIV – UNDER THE SUN
This is song is soaked in reverb and makes me want to dance on the kitchen table.
SLOAN PETERSON – 105
Instant fans as we love Ferris Bueller’s day off. Really cool pop track, excite to hear more of her songs!
JADE IMAGINE – WALKIN’ AROUND
Beautiful, dark and with dreamy harmonies – wish it went for double the length!
RVG – A QUALITY OF MERCY
Maybe the best band coming out of Melbourne right now? Haunting lyrics accompanied with everything we love about Go Betweens and Echo & The Bunnymen
ALI BARTER – GIRLIE BITS
Big hooks, smart lyrics, great song.
TV ON THE RADIO – CAFFEINATED CONSCIOUSNESS
