NICK HUGGINS NEW SINGLE ‘GOLDEN HOUR’

‘Golden Hour’ is the second single from Nick Huggins’ sophomore solo album Five Lights. Drawn from a palette of national guitar, homemade electronics and Nick’s soft spoken voice, the individual sounds loop and shift, the subtle detail of each coming to the fore throughout the song. ‘Golden Hour’ is accompanied by an intricate hand-drawn animation by Lucy Fahey, the sketched studies therein mirroring the quiet observational moments in the music.

OSCAR AND MARTIN NEW SINGLE & ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR

Melbourne-based electronica duo Oscar and Martin will play a series of shows and festivals this summer to coincide with the release of new single ‘What I Know‘.

Taken from their acclaimed debut album For You, ‘What I Know’ is a sweet and soulful love song, featuring the heart-melting vocals of Bec Rigby (The Harpoons). For You has received rave reviews for its heavy hitting hip-hop drum patterns, wonky baselines and killer r’n'b hooks, with Oscar and Martin being compared to luminaries like the Avalanches and Architecture in Helsinki.

Oscar and Martin recreate their genre-hopping songs in a live setting using tape loops, drum machines, synthesizers, floor toms and their own idiosyncratic vocal harmonies. Having recently supported Caribou, Four Tet and Coco Rosie, Oscar and Martin can’t wait to share their ingenious wonky pop music with you this summer.
See below for all upcoming tour dates!

MP3: THE HARPOONS – ‘KEEP YOU AROUND’

Melbourne pop R’n’B quartet The Harpoons return with ‘Keep You Around’, the new single taken from their forthcoming debut album, due for release in 2012 through Two Bright Lakes / Remote Control.
The track was just premièred by Mess+Noise and you can grab a free download below too.

In the tradition of the great voices of Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia, coupled with an ear for modern R’n'B production techniques, The Harpoons make some of the finest pop R’n'B that we’ve heard in a long time. Brothers Henry and Jack Madin write undeniable boppers and ballads that burst with harmony and a shared knowledge that only siblings have. Bec Rigby’s arresting vocals are bellowing and heart-melting, and Martin King (of Oscar and Martin) provides the backbone for the songs.

The Harpoons impressed many with the release of their debut EP back in 2009, going on to play packed out shows across Melbourne. The band were also invited to play the Meredith Music Festival and support the likes of Soko (US), Dr. Dog (US) and Adam Green (US).
