Good Pash rocked our socks off at the Issue 5 Launch, and we’ve been keeping one ear on them ever since. Having caught them in their element, we suggest you do the same.
As part of International Women’s Day, we asked Babyshakes (Maddy), Hotwheelz (Anna), A’ite (Court) and Rasorsk8 (Jules) to share some of their favourite ever tracks written by women.
Wanting to diversify your go-to playlist on International Women’s Day? Start off with these 10 hits, courtesy of the rockers from Good Pash.
Courtney Barnett – Kim’s Caravan
This song is a bittersweet environmental ballad that just keeps building and building. There’s this great line that always gives me a bit of a shiver:
“The Great Barrier Reef it ain’t so great anymore. It’s been raped beyond belief, the dredges treat it like a whore.” 💜 Mads
Moaning Lisa – Carrie
I know everyone is talking about this tune, but there’s a reason for that. 💜 Mads
Boat Show – The Big Smoke
This is a bloody good tune. It’s also pretty funny. 💜 Mads
Kylie Minogue – I Believe In You
Tina Arena – Sorrento Moon
This song makes me want to groove and have a cigar. 💚 Anna
Claire Anne Taylor – My Mother, The Mountain
I first heard Claire at Dashville Skyline last year. It was a gloomy afternoon and my best mate and I sat down on a comfy picnic blanket near the front with a beer and watched her pour her soul out.
It was bloody magical. This one’s for all the strong mummas out there. 💛 Jules
Jen Cloher – Regional Echo
A lot of my songwriting attempts are based on Jen Cloher. I love the way she swaps between rock god and folk songstress, and the often fugal way they intertwine.
This is a definite favourite from her latest album. 💛 Jules
Merpire – Holding Breath
Fuarrr what a voice! This ripper tune produced by Andy Bull has synths that make you feel tingly inside and simultaneously conjures up a power ballad vibe. 💛 Jules
Major Leagues – Good Love
One of my faves of 2017. 💙 Court
Stella Donnelly – Mechanical Bull
Years of working in customer service brings this one close to my heart. 💙 Court
