World Wild – Coast to Coast
Something tells me that World Wild is a name we will be seeing a lot more of in 2015 and beyond. Somewhat of a chameleon through many different bands in Adelaide over the last decade or so, Jarrad Lee Jackson has turned his hand to a solo project and is freaking nailing it. Getting to it with an 80’s vibe of good time synths, classic rock guitars and laid back vocals, Coast to Coast is a pretty solid introduction to the creative stylings of World Wild.
Tigerilla – You Are feat. Baro
One thing really admirable about Tigerilla is that he really tries to push the boundaries with his fractured beat pop music. After his last single, I thought he might have lost it but here is with a really laid back and creative piece of music. It’s super intriguing, going at its own pace and doing just as much as it should.
Hayden James – Something About You
This is the jam of the summer right here. Hayden James returns with something that is just right for cruising, dancing, drinking and feeling good, a bubbly beat layered with hooks that wins you over with all of its turns.
SBTRKT – Wonder Where We Land feat. Sampha
This is probably one of the most beautiful songs I’ve heard in a while and I’m pretty obsessed with SBTRKT’s whole new album of the same name. It mostly works thanks to Sampha’s vocals which absolutely nail it around SBTRKT’s unique production style. This is a live version from a BBC session or something, all kinds of magic happening here.
