Slap on those headphones and kick up your feet, it’s time to discover the best new releases of the week that’s just passed.

Winston Surfshirt – Make A Move

Sydney based movers Winston Surfshirt have a new single to their name, and we promise it’s the lush dance track you were craving. The tune has an almost disco feel, with a driving bass line and smooth drum grooves.

The effortless vocal melody ties the piece together, as always. Listen to Make A Move below.

SUPAHONEY – Apricot Jam

Alternative rock four-piece, SUPAHONEY  have brought the goods with the release of their newest single, Apricot Jam. The track packs a punch with mesmerising guitar riffs and standout vocals.

Evoking a feeling of high adrenaline, the song leaves you wanting to hear more. The band will be holding their single launch on the 20th of June at The Dock in Redfern, so Sydneysiders make sure you swing by and support the local band scene! Check out the event here.

Renwick – As I Am 

Upcoming Sydney musician Renwick has just released his new single As I Am.  Drenched in reverb and guitar-y goodness, the track combines classic indie pop with an electronic sensibility.

The emotive lyrics are captivating and reel you deeper and deeper into the song. If you’re a fan of Mac Demarco, Renwick will definitely float your boat.

Goldlink – Diaspora

Goldlink has released an iconic album which features Tyler, the Creator, Pusha T, Khalid and heaps of other incredible artists. The rapper’s second studio LP looks into the global legacy of black music whilst experimenting with different sound sources for a unique feel to each track.

We reckon it’s killer. Check it out for yourself just below.

Montaigne – READY

Montaigne has released a swirling pop anthem with darker undertones woven throughout. She reveals that the song offers meaningful insight into her own political ideas:

To me the song is about this political moment, where humanity is starting to realise how actually cooked this planet is, that it never had to be like this, and that we have the power now to overthrow those who’ve forced us into this corner.”
