Meet the top 20 most-played acts on triple j this week

As usual, it’s been a pretty big week for music on triple j, with some of the finest local and international acts getting some pretty solid airplay. But just what were listeners loving the most this week? What were the tunes that dominated the airwaves, and who were the artists that now have heaps of new fans after plenty of exposure on triple j?

Well, we’ve decided to take a look at the charts for the last week and give you a quick run-through as to which artists saw the most airplay. Just looking at this list of artists though, it’s amazing to think that music fans in this country have access to such a wide-reaching and diverse range of music available to them. Needless to say, we’re incredibly lucky!

20. Maddy Jane

Ever since Maddy Jane first burst onto the scene a couple of years ago, fans have been going wild for her unique brand of storytelling and songwriting. Now, with her profile starting to rise even more with tunes like ‘Thank You And Sorry’, Maddy Jane has made it into this week’s most-played list, and rightly so!

19. The Vaccines

Returning for the first time in three years, The Vaccines have burst back onto the scene with the typically brilliant ‘I Can’t Quit’, which has racked up enough airplay to become this week’s tenth most-popular song.

18. Franz Ferdinand

Five years since their last studio effort (and three years after a collab album with Sparks), Franz Ferdinand are getting ready to release their fifth album, Always Ascending. Preceded by the highly-popular title track, get ready for plenty more of these guys real soon.

17. Elk Road

Following a solid couple years of hits, including last year’s Hottest 100-placing ‘Hanging By A Thread’, Elk Road has undoubtedly scored his biggest hit with the success of ‘Solid Gold’. Featuring the likes of Julia Stone, this song is guaranteed to be an enduring banger for quite some time now.

16. LPX

Having drifted away from MS MR for a while, Elizabeth Plapinger has been making music as LPX, and people are loving it. With ‘Slide’ currently the fifth most-played track on the station this week, we’re real excited to hear as much as possible from this new project.

15. Tame Impala

It’s been over two years since Tame Impala last released a record, but thanks in part to the recent Collector’s Edition reissue of Currents, they’re back on top of the popularity pile. Let’s face it though, they were never too far away.

14. The Wombats

Honorary Aussies The Wombats are gearing up to release their fourth album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, next month. Having already released the album’s first single, ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight’, the group’s next single ‘Turn’ has already begun doing the rounds, gaining them plenty more fans in the process.

13. Vance Joy

We’re one month away from Vance Joy’s long-awaited second album, Nation Of Two, and with songs such as ‘Lay It On Me’ and ‘We’re Going Home’ warranting constant airplay on the station, we reckon that Vance Joy has hit upon gold once more.

12. Jarami

Having won over plenty of fans thanks to their production work on Frank Ocean’s ‘Chanel’, Swedish duo Jarami have capitalised on this success thanks to songs such as ‘Hear This’. Currently the sixth most-played track on the station, we can’t wait to hear more of this exemplary duo.

11. Wolf Alice

A few months back, you couldn’t look at this list without seeing Wolf Alice near the top. But after a while away, the group released their second record, Visions Of A Life. Featuring the triple j favourites ‘Don’t Delete the Kisses’ and ‘Beautifully Unconventional’, Wolf Alice are undoubtedly one of the most popular acts on triple j lately.

10. BROCKHAMPTON

After a stunning 2017, BROCKHAMPTON have revealed that they’ve got plans for more music in the future, much to everyone’s delight. With plenty of US tour dates on the horizon, we’re hoping these guys won’t forget their Aussie pals when it comes time to announce international tour dates.

9. Kendrick Lamar

Kung Fu Kenny just keeps on delivering the goods. Sure, it’s been eight months since DAMN. was released, but that hasn’t stopped Australia’s love affair with one of the finest hip-hop artists going around.

8. Lily Allen

Lily Allen is currently hard at work at her fourth record, the tentatively-titled The Fourth Wall. With her new single, ‘Trigger Bang’, currently the most-played track for the week, it seems as though fans can’t wait for this one to drop.

7. Superorganism

Sounding less like an indie pop band and sounding more like a Transformers villain, Superorganism are an inter-continental group of musos living in London who just keep cranking out the tunes. With ‘Everybody Wants To Be Famous’ currently the fourth most-played track on triple j, we’re certain this sprawling collective will be even bigger in no time.

6. Migos

Migos are gearing up to release their third studio album, Culture II, on Friday, and understandably, fans are going wild for all the great tunes this new record holds. With ‘Stir Fry’ currently the third most-played track on triple j this week, you can be certain you’ll be hearing plenty more of Migos in the coming months.

5. Ball Park Music

Following a year in which Ball Park Music dominated with their endearing indie banger ‘Exactly How You Are’, the band closed out 2017 with the release of ‘The Perfect Life Does Not Exist’. While we’re loving these new tunes, we’re just really keen on that new album, guys!

4. Tiny Little Houses

Having made us fall in love with them a few of years back with their endearing indie-rock, Tiny Little Houses dropped their debut album, Idiot Proverbs, only a matter of days ago. With tracks like ‘Entitled Generation’ becoming huge fan-favourites in recent months, get ready to hear even more of these guys as time goes on.

3. Gordi

Gordi’s debut record was released in 2017, and inexplicably, early vinyl copies contained half of Queens Of The Stone Age’s new record. This little hiccup didn’t hinder this Aussie star’s success in any way, with her record selling like hotcakes, and triple j giving tracks like ‘On My Side’ plenty of love.

2. Gang of Youths

Following an immensely huge 2017, Gang Of Youths are still continuing to dominate, with plenty of airplay from the brilliant tunes from their second LP. It says a lot about the band’s consistent quality that they’ve managed to be the second most-played act of the week without any of their songs cracking the top 20 songs of the week. They’re versatile musos!

1. Børns

Following the release of his debut album back in 2012, Garret Borns has been winning fans all over the world. Now, with the release of his third album (and second under the Børns moniker), Blue Madonna, Aussie fans have been all over this US muso. With his album currently the feature album for the week, get ready to hear plenty more from Børns in the future.

Check out the 20 most-played acts on triple j this week

This week has seen some pretty amazing additions to the triple j playlist, with plenty of well-deserved Aussie acts getting the recognition they need. Of course, it can’t all be homegrown talent, with lots of amazing international acts getting in on the action as well.

With so many brilliant artists and songs floating around the airwaves, it can be a little hard to keep track of what we’ve been listening to over the week. That’s why we’ve decided to take a look back over the 20 most-played artists on triple j this week, and give you a quick rundown on just who they are, and why you’ve been hearing so much of them.

20. Samsaruh

Samsaruh has had an absolutely amazing year in 2017, with countless tunes being spun on triple j, triple j Unearthed, and plenty of collaborations with big name musos. Given how good tracks like ‘Beautiful Killer’ are, it’s hardly any wonder why she’s been getting major airplay on triple j.

19. Wolf Alice

A few weeks back, you couldn’t look at this list without seeing Wolf Alice near the top. But after a few of weeks away, the group released their second record,Visions Of A Life. Featuring the triple j favourites ‘Don’t Delete the Kisses’ and ‘Beautifully Unconventional’, Wolf Alice are set to be known as one of this year’s most popular acts, and rightfully so.

18. Gang Of Youths

Gang Of Youths have had a huge year. With an ARIA #1 album, countless brilliant songs being released onto the airwaves, and their recent success at the ARIAs, it’s hardly any surprise these absolute legends are still getting much-deserved airplay.

17. Mallrat

Mallrat has been absolutely killing it since she exploded onto the scene last year. With a casual style of performing, Mallrat has been winning fans all over the place thanks to her seemingly effortless approach to music. Definitely one to watch for the future.

16. Bishop Briggs

Bishop Briggs has only been making music professionally for the last couple of years, but in those few years we’ve fallen in love with what she’s created. Having now scored some major airplay thanks to songs like ‘Hi-Lo (Hollow)’, and ‘Dream’, this won’t be the last we hear of this English muso, and that suits us just fine.

15. The Jungle Giants

When The Jungle Giants released their much-anticipated record, Quiet Ferocity, back in June, we knew we were going to be hearing plenty more of them. Now that tracks like the slick ‘Bad Dream’ have been all over the airwaves, well we can’t complain one bit.

14. Sløtface

Sløtface have spent the last year dominating the international music scene, thanks to their memorable name and their no-holds-barred punk-rock attitude. Following a trip to Australia this year, the band’s popularity received a huge boost, with countless Aussies citing them as one of their new favourites.

13. Jarami

One of the finest new production duos to hit the scene, these Swedish musos have been rising in popularity ever since they first collaborated with Frank Ocean. Now, with tracks like ‘Hear This’ making a splash on triple j, they’ve suddenly found themselves plenty of new fans in Australia.

12. Meg Mac

Still getting constant airplay months after the release of her debut album, Meg Mac is showing that she’s easily one of Australia’s greatest musos with her countless appearances on this list now.

11. The Wombats

For a band who tour our country as much as The Wombats, they might as well be honorary Aussies by now. Having recently announced a new album is on the way, their lead single ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight’ has been scoring some serious love. Now we just have to wait for the inevitable Aussie tour!

10. Basenji

Having risen in popularity for a couple of years now, it’s no surprise that a collab with Adelaide’s Tkay Maidza was going to be the key to success for Basenji. Currently the fourth most-played track on triple j this week, we reckon this one could be right at the top in no time.

9. What So Not

What So Not already had a banner year thanks to a collaboration with LPX, but now a collaboration with Daniel Johns has produced ‘Bo Ok Again’, a jam so beloved by triple j that it’s managed to score the status of being the third most-played track for the week.

8. The Killers

The Killers had a pretty huge year as well in 2017, thanks to a number one album, a secret show in Melbourne, and performances at the AFL Grand Final. Now, with the Las Vegas rockers set to return to Australia in just a matter of months, they’ve scored some pretty impressive airplay on triple j once again.

7. Tired Lion

Tired Lion’s Dumb Days scored plenty of accolades and critical reception upon its release, but the band aren’t obviously out of the minds of fans just yet, with triple j giving Tired Lion enough spins to make them one of the most-played acts on the station this week.

6. Starcrawler

Starcrawler have been together for almost no time at all, but it’s taken them almost the same amount of time to start creating some brilliant rock tunes that will get you out of your seat and dancing around the room. With ‘I Love LA’ the second most-played track on triple j this week, it’s a perfect addition to any rock-lover’s playlist.

5. Tame Impala

It’s been two years since Tame Impala last released a record, but thanks in part to the recent Collector’s Edition reissue of Currents, they’re back on top of the popularity pile. Let’s face it though, they were never too far away.

4. Vallis Alps

Vallis Alps have been slowly rising over the last couple of years, slowly becoming one of Australia’s favourite new artists. Having released two EPs in as many years, the duo have now released the brilliant ‘So Settled’, which has impressed listeners enough to become the most-played track on the station this week.

3. BROCKHAMPTON

This US hip-hop collective might have only been around a few years, but that hasn’t stopped them from giving us three huge records already this year. Although they promised their new album would be their last, the group have since said they plan to keep on making new music into the future.

With tracks like ‘Swamp’ and ‘Sweet’ becoming firm favourites for fans, expect to hear plenty more from these amazing musicians when their next record drops.

2. Kendrick Lamar

Kung Fu Kenny just keeps on delivering the goods. Sure, it’s been eight months since DAMN. was released, but that hasn’t stopped Australia’s love affair with one of the finest hip-hop artists going around.

1. Petit Biscuit

Having been on the minds of countless music fans for a couple of years now, Petit Biscuit released his debut album back in November, and folks have been loving it. Thanks to the success of tracks like ‘Waterfall’ and ‘Gravitation’, Petit Biscuit has quickly become a new favourite for countless Aussie listeners.
