Friends and neighbours, Tim is back in the house, freshly wedded (congratulations, man!) and ready to hit you up with his picks of the week.
Amy Shark, Weekends
Heart-eye emoji, heart-eye emoji, heart-eye emoji. The most popular runner-up since Nollsie – Hottest 100 #2 place winner, Amy Shark – just dropped the follow-up to the massive 2016 hit Adore. The Gold Coast girl sure knows how to tell a story. Alright cobber, cheerio, hooroo cob, cheers!
The Football Club, Ivy
The Football Club, from Footscray. Not the Doggies, 2016 was their year; 2017 is all about this four-piece and their cracking new tune Ivy. If you haven’t heard of these cats, they "play sad songs with big drunken choruses and heaped mouthfuls of words, telling stories around topics like sexuality, gender, friendship, and cheap red wine." They also write great description of themselves, so I borrowed from their site. Cheers fam.
Bleeding Knees Club, Chew The Gum
You know when your mate borrows a CD off you and then you completely forget that the band that released that CD existed until they release a new track three years later and then you remember that said mate still has that CD? Same. Gold Coast hooligan Alex Wall has assembled a crack team of brats and re-assembled a new look Bleeding Knees Club after a three-year hiatus. The first cut off their forthcoming EP of the same name is Chew The Gum.
PS: I want my Bleeding Knees Club CD back – you know who you are.
Gretta Ray, Towers
Unearthed High winner and real-life angel Gretta Ray has followed Drive with its beautiful sister song, Towers. Word is there is an full length album on the way this year. Huge if true.
Allday, In Motion featuring Japanese Wallpaper
Anyone else get massive Drake vibes from Allday lately? The Melbourne rapper has teamed up with local electro prodigy Japanese Wallpaper in this 'when worlds collide' collaboration. Imagine being the person that thought mint and chocolate wouldn't go together. Don't knock it 'til you try it.
