EP: Side A- Leisure

As New Zealand five-piece Leisure celebrate their fifth year together, we celebrate the release of their dreamy groove-filled EP, Side A. Side A is a soothing collection of psychedelic guitar, sparkling synth, tranquil reverb and calming vocals. It’s not always easy to create an EP that shines from start to finish with every single track clearly owning its own space – but that’s exactly what Leisure have achieved.

FEATURE – KIRKLANDD

Canberra artist KIRKLANDD has completed his trilogy EP The Love Divide. The final single Too Late is another display of KIRKLANDD’s ability to play with genre, this time taking his signature rapping and mixing it with an exotic acoustic guitar melody. We take a look at the EP in full and hear from KIRKLANDD about his Top 5 Movie Soundtracks, celebrating the ability of composers in merging audio and aesthetic to create the ultimate emotive experience.

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.
