Jitwam - Stranger Danger
Jitwam is continuing to tease his forthcoming LP Third, releasing another dancefloor and soul-inspired banger in the form of Stranger Danger. The track channels psychedelic energy, wrapped in a gloss of punk and hip-hop influences. The single reminisces of the psych-funk era, a time where the unexpected was expected. 

daine - Dragging
Emo icon daine has released their latest single Dragging, which pairs perfectly with their most recent, shoegaze-inspired Sleepwalking. Dragging features production from Circle Pit as well as guitar performed by daine themselvesThe track reflects the anxieties that permeate your thoughts in the lead-up to a final decision when questioning a relationship. 

Hearteyes, Lonelyspeck, cookii - METAL FLAKE
Underground club, pop and metal fusion legends cookii, Lonelyspeck and Hearteyes have combined once again to deliver another smashing new single, METAL FLAKE alongside the track's music video which is directed by Charles Buxton Leslie. The forward thinking partnership again lands with perfection and is defined by a melting pot of hard-hitting abrasive sounds from a range of genres. The track stuns with its distorted electronic percussion line, which combines perfectly with the dreamy vocals of all the acts before erupting into guitar driven chaos and a hook chanted by Hearteyes.

Nerve - Yuck
Meanjin based rapper Nerve has returned to the release radar, unveiling his latest single, Yuck. The track sees the multi-faceted artist return to his hard trap, bar driven earlier work, creating a track that is equal parts abrasive and playful. It lands at the perfect time, before he heads on tour with Aitch next week and makes a huge appearance at Splendour In The Grass.
