This week’s triple j additions: Amy Shark, Gorillaz, and disco Kasabian

Posted On Mar 27, 2017

Polish Club's Alright Already is the feature album this week on triple j, and the closest thing to old fashioned rock music being added this week.

Northlane and sleepmakeswaves have the industrial/hardcore corner covered, sure, but aside from these two acts’ (great) tracks, it would appear every addition this week shares a similar cruisy/claustrophobic dance vibe.
