EP: Departures – Elme

Encased in a tender four-track serenade, the debut EP of Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Elme is an introspective journey into how humans process detachment and distance. Departures elegantly combines melodically reflective nuance with thoughtful lyricism, providing the listener with a full-bodied experience from cover to cover.


Melbourne-based electronic duo GL (a.k.a Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson) have released their latest studio album, You Read My Mind. From simmering percussion, to edgy pulsing synths, GL have continued to raise the bar for modern disco and funk, with a sprinkling of something unique. We had a chat to Graeme and Ella about releasing music in lockdown, spontaneity in the studio, and how friendship and music mix. We also take a little deep-dive into the record too.


Following the release of his latest track Trophy, it’s clear that 21-year-old Sydney hip-hop artist Lanstan is taking the local scene by storm. With an enviable confidence, a talent for introspective expression, and a unique genre-bending vision, Lanstan is carving out a clear space for himself in the modern hip-hop world. We had a chat with him about his songwriting, music journey, and the gaping hole left by the live music scene in 2020.
