The latest project from the psych-rock group is as much an album as it is a cinematic masterpiece, taking its listeners through a vivid psych-pop landscape bursting with adventure and timeless fun. is a whirlwind of heavy bass, pulsating electros and synths that is decorated with impressionistic lyricism. Do yourself a favour and give it a listen.

Elton John Finish Line ft. Stevie Wonder

Elton John and Stevie Wonder release their first proper duet through Finish Line, a groovy, gospel-tinged tune sporting two of the most iconic vocals in the music industry. The track instantly elevates the mood – from the choir to Stevie’s age-defying voice – its vibe is entirely its own. Finish Line is one of those tunes that will be loved regardless of age and will travel through time untainted.

Client Liason – Cold to Touch ft. Glades

Musically Cold to Touch carries Client Liason’s trademark feel-good melodies, with late ’90s and early ’00s beats. On the flip side, the lyrics explore the darker moments within a relationship. Regardless, we can’t help but let the warm, summery sonics swoop us up into a blissful state of ignorance towards the true meaning of the song. Sorry not sorry Client Liason.

Dominic Breen Blue Volume

The latest album from Sydney musician, Dominic Breen, is a self-described “timestamp” of experiences and an honest recount of painful lessons learned. Despite the heavy subject matter, Breen finds a way to translate his pain into a soothing and uplifting composition akin to The Smiths, Joy Division and The Cure. The whole album is a shimmering compilation of tumultuous life experiences and their beauty.
