This week rocked. We’re up to our ears in new tunes; from albums, to singles, and even a great new video here and there.

Now that it’s Saturday, it’s time to look back at the week of new music that’s just passed. Here are five new tunes you can’t miss.

Happy Listening: we’ve found you five new releases from a huge week in music. Wrap your ears around these bad boys.

Sarah Mary Chadwick – The Queen Who Stole The Sky

The Queen Who Stole the Sky is beautifully cinematic. Soaked in cathartic grandeur, the album explores the terrors of normalcy, and carries Sarah Mary Chadwick’s brackish voice to a new scope of vulnerability.

The album was designed for Town Hall’s organ, and it feels that big too; tugging a different heart string with every breath.

Totally Unicorn – Sorry

Gone are the days of tongue in cheek lyricism from Totally Unicorn. Instead we’re getting Sorry, complete with gutting dialogue, acrobatic fretwork, and pulsing electronics.

It’s a decidedly different sound for the Wollongong outfit, weaving in more emotion than ever before. It’s rich, dynamic, and demands that you feel everything.

Press Club – Get Better 

Get Better is the first new music we’ve caught from Press Club since their Late Teens LP last year. It brings in all the punky elements we’ve come to love from the band; a quick rhythmic thrum, a floor stomping meld of guitar and bass, and salient vocals.

With lyrics based around the insincere actions of others, the song seeps energy and a sincerity to match.

FONTAINES D.C. – Dogrel

Dublin five-piece FONTAINES D.C. have hit the ground running with their debut album Dogrel. The album takes aim at punk’s obsession with authenticity, and does so with a dynamic array of sounds.

Through rumbling bass, quick drums, and raw energy, you’re given an exploration of punk, and a signal of FONTAINES D.C.’s immense talent.

Body Type – Free To Air

Self described “trash can girl band” Body Type have delivered their signature heart-on-sleeve indie rock in their latest single Free To Air. 

Featuring some very cool guitar picking, ebbing drums, and soaring harmonies, Fee to Air showcases a more mellow sound for Body Type. It’s the second cut from their forthcoming EP2,  and leaves a lot to be anticipated.
