Happy’s Best New Music

Updated weekly by the fine folk at Happy Mag, this is the absolute best new music that this week has to offer from Australia and around the world!

Gang of Youths the man himself

An uplifting and liberating sound manifests in Gang of Youths the man himself. It highlights the simultaneous grief and growth that we are faced with in life and the bittersweet moments that follow. David’s commanding vocals make for an epic and unforgettable track that – despite the somber lyrics – is sonically empowering and mood-elevating.

Moaning Lisa Something Like This But Not This

Moaning Lisa’s energy-packed debut album is incredibly honest and captivating. It bundles themes of love and loss into an alt-rock/shoegaze compilation that oozes ’90s grunge vibes. Both dynamic and experimental, Something Like This But Not This uses a mixture of fuzz-pop and grittier sounds to highlight life’s tendency to harbor conflicting emotions.

Spacey Jane – Lunchtime

This earwormy rock track sees the fusion of groovy electric guitar riffs and tantalising vocal harmonies. Fast-paced and bursting with energy, Spacey Jane has experimented with a slightly different sound through this latest single. It’s youthful, it’s fun and it’s joyous, and while the sonics do not entirely mirror the lyrics, the song is a perfect reflection of uncertain times and the self-evaluation that tends to occur in them.

James Blake – Friends That Break Your Heart

The fifth studio album from Blake is an exploration of the uncomfortable and tense situations we find ourselves in when friendships end. It’s a different kind of loss that usually takes a backseat in music, but Blake graciously brings it to the forefront. His incredibly soothing vocals are accompanied by electronic soundscapes and feature artists that amplify the emotional themes within.

Jaguar Jonze – Who Died And Made You King?

In her fiery new single Who Died and Made You King? Jaguar Jonze confronts the music industry’s toxic culture. The punchy percussions and distorted, fierce vocals combine to pack a perfect punch at the misogyny and toxic masculinity that is rife across the Australian music industry. Sonically, it’s a concoction of ’90s artist, Garbage and Jonze’s signature indie-rock style.
