This week's additions to triple j Unearthed see a wide variety of acts being added into rotation, and like usual, getting to know these acts can be a daunting task. So, where do you start? Well, that's where we come in. With our insight into the world of music, we've taken a look at some of the acts added into rotation, and hand-picked a few that you might want to keep your eye on.
Who know, hearing these awesome acts this week could be the first time you hear some of the future stars of the Aussie music scene, and surely it would be best to know a bit more about who you're listening to. So stick with us as we introduce you to three acts you'll be hearing plenty of this week.
Adelaide's SIAMESE are living proof that you can do a lot with a little. See, in their short history, the indie-rock four-piece haven't released a whole lot of music yet, with the majority of their fame coming from their absolute banger 'Computer Patient'. But with the support of the killer Adelaide music scene, SIAMESE are poised to take on the world.
Their newest track, 'Scatterbrain', starts off as a hazy little number before exploding into a cacophony of noise and emotion, that evokes the sound of their fellow Adelaide contemporaries such as Horror My Friend, and West Thebarton, along with a steady dose of Sonic Youth thrown in. Keep an eye on SIAMESE, these guys could be exactly what the future of Aussie indie-rock will sound like.
Kelso's Unearthed profile asks the poignant question: "Is dreamo a genre?" If it wasn't before, it certainly is now. The side project of Kelly from Camp Cope, Kelso makes dreamy indie folk music that draws you in and leaves you wanting more.
Tender, haunting, and infectious, Kelso's music might be a little bit softer than the music played as a part of Camp Cope, but that doesn't mean it's any less important. Evoking images of some of the famous 'slowcore' bands, such as Low, Sun Kil Moon, or Galaxie 500, Kelso takes things nice and slow, giving you time to digest the music presented, and truly appreciate the emotion and feelings that are put into every guitar strum, and every word. 'Ah Well' has entered rotation this week, and the track will undoubtedly be stuck in your head after one solitary listen.
WILDLYF is the adopted moniker of Central Coast producer Conor Moran. Having managed to impress the likes of Alison Wonderland and Trap Nation, Conor is undoubtedly a rising star in the Aussie electronic scene. With a grasp on beats and melodies that is far greater than those with twice as much experience, WILDLYF is undoubtedly on track to follow in the footsteps of other Aussie producers such as Flume.
With WILDLYF's 'Be There' (featuring the vocals of Erin Finlay) entering rotation this week, you're going to be hearing quite a lot of the young producer, and with good reason. WILDLYF is set to be one of Aussie electronic's next big names, and with support from some of the industry's best and brightest, it won't be long before you see WILDLYF headlining festivals near you.
