LaForza – ‘Float’


LaForza love The Jesus & Mary Chain, getting stoned, and staring into the sun! Chances are you do too, and perhaps their groovy new single ‘Float’. The Los Angeles-based act have grown from chief songwriter Izzy’s bedroom into a fully fledged foursome. Beautiful tune!

Dianas – ’1000 Years’


The Dianas girls (Nathalie and Caitlin) have had a busy year, between local shows and recording their debut LP with producer Aden Senyycia, the pair have recruited a new drummer (Mr. John Lekias of Doctopus). The Perth band have just announced their latest single ‘1000 Years‘, our first taste of the album. Dianas layer their amazing vocal harmonies over a danceable rhythm section, with otherworldly results. Thumbs up! Since delivering their first EP in 2012, the trio have been featured on RTRfm, Triple J Unearthed, FBi, as well as live slots alongside Thee Oh Sees, Super Wild Horses and Dick Diver.

To The Wedding – ‘Silver Currents’


To The Wedding‘s latest EP ‘Silver Currents‘ has barely been out a month but it’s already been praised by The Wild Honey Pie, DKFM, Crack In The Road and NME. The beauty of songs like ‘Come On’ and ‘Silver Currents’ places the EP among the year’s best dream pop releases. Multi-instrumentalist Lauren Grubb translates simple melodies into a rich, cinematic atmosphere (for fans of Memoryhouse, Echo Lake and Still Corners). It’s the second offering from the Californian since 2010, now we need a full length!
