This week’s triple j additions: Horrorshow, Trophy Eyes, and a future smash hit

A surprise in this week’s triple j additions comes in the form of the new Calvin Harris single. Not usually a triple j artist, it would appear that the appearance of current chart darlings Migos, and the untouchable Frank Ocean on the track proved too hard to resist for triple j programmers.

Less surprising is the addition of ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ from Horrorshow, a longtime triple j mainstay. The band’s latest album debuted at #4 on the ARIA charts this past weekend, so expect a few more singles to be added within the next few months.

Other Aussie tracks added this week include Boo Seeka’s swirling synth symphony ‘Does This Last’ (soooo lush), Trophy Eyes’ hooky punk blast Counting Sheep’ (which we certainly don’t recommend as a sleeping aid, despite its title), and L D R U’s earworm ‘To Be Free’.

From across the pond we have the lovely, laconic ‘Boyfriend’ from Marika Hackman (such a great chorus!), and some dark, Sleigh Bells-sounding hip hop from K.Flay.

A strong and varied list of additions this week, which bodes well for the next seven days of jays.

Finally, a prediction: ‘Bubblegum’ by Confidence Man will be a massive, massive hit, and you’ll know whether you love it or hate it from the very first listen. Is it too early to predict a top ten Hottest 100 entry? Probably, but fortune favours the bold. Until next week…
