3 Aussie single releases we are digging right now: KUČKA, Maina Doe and Dobby

Impassioned siren calls from Dobby and the R&b grooves of Maina Doe stay firmly on Happy’s repeat releases playlist.   

2024 is already shaping up to be a killer year for Australian music. So stacked has the local release roster been that it can be easy to miss a new single or underrated gem.

This week alone we’ve been treated to a flurry of exciting releases, three of which — from KUČKA, Dobby and Maina Doe — we’re digging into below.

Bringing together over 20 artists from Palestinian, Arab, First Nations, and diverse backgrounds, UNTIL WE’RE FREE arrives with an impassioned message of unity.

Among the collaborators on the new single — a siren call for a ceasefire amid the ongoing genocide in Palestine — is Dobby and L-FRESH the Lion, who join calls for an end to injustice with the anthemic new single.

Working to amplify the voices of Palestinian people, UNTIL WE’RE ALL FREE calls on fellow musicians and industry to speak out against war. It’s an important message delivered with fiery incision, and a testament to music as a force for good. 

One More Night — KUČKA (prod. by Flume)

Adding to an already illustrious string of collaborative singles — including Hyperreal and Numb & Getting Colder KUČKA and Flume have joined forces yet again for new cut One More Night.

An explosive pop track punctuated by swelling crescendos and moments of near-silence, the single sees KUČKA become “infatuated and addicted to your crush,” the producer/vocalist explained in a press statement. Bless your ears below. 

Witness — Maina Doe

R&b phenom Maina Doe returns this week with Witness, a simmering hip-hop track recounting the singer-songwriter’s journey of self-discovery.

Atop propulsive snares and sauntering beats, Doe delivers vocals with a whisper, before a distorted rap verse brings the heat. Witness is said to usher in a year of upcoming releases for Doe, and if it’s anything to go by, we’re in for a treat. Listen below.
