In less than two and half minutes, Bri Clark will draw you into an cavernous spiral that bleeds with overwhelming intensity. ‘Waiting’ simultaneously explores the torturous mindsets of love, heartache and living with chronic illness, weaving through a tumultuous journey and cleverly culminating in a sense of frustrating incompleteness.
Last month, Sydney-siders Oh My My released their cinematic track ‘Make Me Feel Alive Tonight’ as part of a double A-side drop including ‘We All Want the Lights Down’. The heart-racing, anthemic track is a bold take on our 20s, where the nights are often big, the choices aren’t always great, and the memories are like nothing else we’ll ever create. Today, the duo release an acoustic rendition of this passionate track, released exclusively on LIKE VELVET Music. Stripping right back to just two guitars and a powerful vocal line, this version packs a whole new emotive punch and offers a newfound tenderness.
Melbourne artist Meghna has served up her latest slice of hypnotically dark pop. Her flair for creating brooding tunes that showcase her vocal range continues to shine through, while the depth of her storytelling is cleverly disguised in her understated delivery. ‘In My DNA’ couples sharp percussive sounds with a thick bassline to create the ideal canvas for her voice to dance between.
There’s something about a dark and brooding tune coupled with the imagery of a twisted fairy tale that deeply intrigues us. But it’s Evangeline’s gentle voice of vulnerability that has us so enamoured. Her single Neighborhood tells a story of fragility and highlights the wounds we carry from trying to fit in.
