Sydney indie-folk singer-songwriter Emma Davis has just released the gorgeous new clip for her single “Getting Better”.

The video was filmed around the Illawarra Coast and directed by popular cinematographer Sam Brumby.

“To me, the song is about thinking and overthinking and realising you still have so much more to learn about your own mind, but that that’s alright,” Davis explained. “I wanted to give an insight into someone trying hard to have a solo adventure, struggling to make it work at every step but still being comfortable with the idea of sadness.”

Emma Davis will be hitting the Golden Age stage in Sydney on the 17th August – check out the official Facebook event for more details.

Adelaide based soul-folk singer-songwriter Kelly Brouhaha has just released her brand new video “As Long As There’s A Smile”.

The track is Brouhaha’s first in almost three years following a bunch of major upheavals in her life including leaving her mortgage and marriage in an effort to find happiness and pursue her love for music.

“As Long As There’s A Smile” was recorded with producer Marty Brown in the same location that Clare Bowditch recorded the album that changed Kelly Brouhaha’s life, The Winter I Chose Happiness.

“That album for me was a real turning point in my career, the messages on that record to follow your heart encouraged me to quit my day job,” Brouhaha explained. “I was on my very first solo tour in 2012 when I first heard it and totally freaking out. After hearing that I came home and quit my job. To be able to record it in the same place that album was made was something really special and I think we really captured the vibe of the lyrics this time around.”
