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!

King Gizzard & The Lizzard Wizard Butterfly 3000

Butterfly 3000 – an introduction to 80s synth-pop that’s, cleaner, brighter, and a shit ton of fun. Trade-in fuzz-wah guitars, to experiment with modular synths and “broken sounds”Butterfly 3000 is an album of fluid, “upbeat dance music”, that keeps the lizzy wizzy magic!

Wolf Alice – Blue Weekend

Amid an endless landscape of alternative rock and neo-psychedelia, Wolf Alice have staked their claim as a standout of rebels with a simple message. Blue Weekend takes Wolf Alice’s innate ability to turn everyday life into a work of art and refines it to a cutting, razor edge.

Lorde – Solar Power

It’s been a hot-minute since we heard from Lorde, after she dropped Melodrama and vanished off the face of the earth. However, she’s back! Solar Power stands testament to Lorde’s ability as a singer and a songwriter – taking the angst of Melodrama and turning it into something brighter and sunnier – but just as cutting to the core.

Hiatus Kaiyote – Chivalry Is Not Dead

Hiatus Kaiyote bring music to its knees with their new single Chivalry Is Not Dead – a ketamine-fuelled wonderland, devoted to the mating rituals of leopard slugs, and seahorses. Whether it’s about ‘turning fluorescent’ or ‘locking tails and dancing’, there’s a bubbly evolution to Chivalry Is Not Dead that can’t be missed.

Crowded House – Dreamers Are Waiting

An album that acts as mature indie-pop from the undoubted musical prowess of Neill Finn, Dreamers Are Waiting still carries Crowded Houses melancholic harmonies with a new force behind them. The notable feature of Liam Finn, who spent his life singing along with his father, only adds to the sonic landscape that Crowded House brings forward.
