Aussie talent is bloody brilliant, to say the least. We’re also lucky enough to be graced with the presence of such amazing platforms such as triple j and its Unearthed program, which helps to uncover and foster fresh, up-and-coming Aussie talent. Could you imagine partaking in a music scene that doesn’t foster the growth of new talent, and instead relies heavily on recycled artists time and time again? Yeah, not for us.
Instead, we’ve got so much fresh talent that sometimes we don’t even know what to do with it all! That’s why we’re taking a few moments to step back and appreciate the top five most-played unsigned acts on triple j right now.
In the last few months, you could probably count the the number of times that Samsaruh hasn’t been on this list on just one hand. Still going strong off the success of her exceptional track ‘Golden To Thrive’, you’re going to be hearing plenty more from Samsaruh in the years to come, giving her the success that she well and truly deserves.
Willaris K. is an up-and-coming producer from Northern NSW, and a name that you’re definitely going to find in your ‘most-played’ playlist in the future. The young muso has been making music for a while now, finding a way to deliver luscious, dark ambient tunes right to your eager ears. While tracks like ‘Alchemy’ might take some repeat listening to full appreciate the full range of sounds and efforts that have gone into its construction, every listen is a journey that you’re glad you’ve taken.
Cub Sport are absolutely unstoppable right now, and that’s just fine by us. Having released their excellent second record,BATS,after an outstandingreception to their debut record,This Is Our Vice,last year, the group have scored a top three position on this nifty little list. With a fresh, soulful approach to their music, Cub Sport have been bringingin more and more fans at every turn, giving them a fanbase that is only appropriate given all the hard work they’ve put into their craft over the years.
Timberwolf is the stage name of Christopher Panousakis, an Adelaide musician who has been delivering his bluesy, indie-rock style to the people for the past few years. Now, after finally beginning to get the recognition he deserves, Timberwolf has just dropped his debut record,Íkaros, which is giving plenty more listeners the chance to discover his unique style of music that some lucky folks have been falling in love with for years now.
One of the most popular young musicians going around right now, Ruby Fields is absolutely killing it right now. With a relatable approach to songwriting, and with a performance style that can only be described as being laid back and genuine, this young muso is going to be huge. With ‘P Plates’ still a triple j favourite, and a national tour coming soon, the future looks very bright for Ruby Fields.
