This week’s Unearthed playlist additions see a total of 15 artists being added to rotation from six Aussie states and territories. Of course, with this much variety in this mix this week, it’s understandable if you’re not quite familiar with many of these artists just yet. While we’re sure you will be soon enough, we’ve decided to shine a spotlight on a handful of these artists you’re bound to be hearing plenty of in no time at all.
Be sure to also check out our spotlight on this week’s Unearthed feature artist, Promise.
Do you remember those days as a youngster when you dreamed of making it big in the world of music, only to be stopped by the fact that you’re, y’know, only 11? Well, that didn’t stop Black Summer from making his first steps into th world of music. You might remember Black Summer from a couple of years ago, when the then-11 year old musician was featured on triple j for being their youngest producer. Well now Rhys Toms has returned with the track ‘Young Like Me’, featuring Canadian singer Lowell.
"It's a bit of a protest song about how it can be hard being a teen and talking about how you've got a lot ahead of you in your life," Toms explained to Linda Marigliano."Some people might not understand how hard it might be being a teen in this generation with global warming and stuff like that going on you know, a song talking about how it's hard being a teenager."
Adelaide's Heaps Good Friends are bringing back quirky dance music and doing their best to make it cool again. With shades of Architecture In Helsinki's trademark kookiness, and with the catchy dance music sounds of fellow dance-pop due The Bird And The Bee, the group are undoubtedly going to be resonating with listeners around the country.
With their newest track 'Olympic Sneakers' blowing up the airwaves as we speak, we're undoubtedly going to be seeing these guys at music festivals in the future while the crowds scream the words "Toilet paper on my shoe, I'm saving it for later." Listen to the song, you'll understand why in no time.
You might recall Crepes; just two years back the world of Aussie music was abuzz with talk of the Melbourne group thanks to their debut EP Cold Summers. Now, the group are back and better than ever thanks to their newest single 'Sexyland'.
Breezy, light-hearted, and full of fun, the track is the first taste of the group's debut record, which is due to be released later in the year. So if you're in the mood for some pretty amazing jangle-pop, then Crepes are right up your alley. Give 'Sexyland' a listen below and try not to fall in love with it.
