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.
Having topped this list a few times in the past, Ruby Fields is constantly one of the most popular unsigned acts on triple j, and for good reason. With an affable approach to songwriting, and with a performance style that can only be described as being laid back and relatable, 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 bright for Ruby Fields.
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, finally getting the recognition that he deserves, Timberwolf is getting ready to drop the record Íkaros, which will give plenty more listeners the chance to discover his unique style of music that folks have been falling in love with for years now.
Cub Sport have been kicking goals all over the place in recent years. After releasing the brilliant record This Is Our Vice last year, and just now releasing their well-received follow-up album BATS, the Brisbane group are destined to be one of Australia’s biggest bands in no time. With a fresh, soulful approach to their music, Cub Sport have been drawn in fans at every turn, giving them a fanbase that they truly deserve for all the hard work they’ve put into their craft over the years.
Who says rock is dead? One listen to Melbourne’s Press Club and you’ll see that their punk sound easily makes them one of the most exciting up and coming bands in the country. Having supported a number of brilliant Aussie bands in recent months, including Adelaide’s West Thebarton, Press Club are undoubtedly set to take the reigns as one of Australia’s biggest rock bands in no time.
Melbourne’s Samsaruh is bound for big things. Having appeared on this list for a number of weeks now, and having cracked the top 20 most-played acts on triple j this week, this musical youngster is going to be huge. Still going strong off the success of her brilliant track ‘Golden To Thrive’, you’re going to be hearing plenty more from Samsaruh in the future, and we can’t complain about that one single bit.
