Melbourne singer-songwriter Cat Canteri has just released her amazing home made video “Fitzroy Bowl”. Fusing together the seemingly disparate notions of country music and skateboarding, the track is poignant and melancholy. And as someone who has spent a bit of time in the inner north of Melbourne it’s amazing to watch Canteri skating through so many familiar locations.

“Fitzroy Bowl” is taken from Cat Canteri’s upcoming album which is due out this March. Check out the video below and then head over to Cat Canteri’s blog to read more about the track and the clip:

Sydney based alt-country singer-songwriter Imogen Clark has had a huge week of announcements, revealing plans to release her new album Collide on the 27th April, dropping her catchy new single and video “Your Anything At All” and listing so many tour dates it’s impossible not to get out and see her.

Collide is Imogen Clark’s second album and was produced by Australian music legend Mark Lizotte (Diesel).

“I’ve largely been working in the alternative country scene up until now, so on this record I wanted to work with someone who understood that genre, but also had knowledge in plenty of other areas,” Clark explained. “Mark was the perfect person to help me achieve this broad, cross-over record which reflected the multitude of my musical influences. We captured everything I love to play and listen to, from country to folk and rock, and as such the album really represents the sort of singer/songwriter I want to be. It was a pleasure working with such a legend.”

The full tracklisting for Collide is here:

1. Collide
2. Late Night Girl
3. Too Late
4. You Got The World Fooled
5. Strike A Pose
6. Left Behind
7. Tear It Down
8. High Tide
9. Your Anything At All
10. Play It Safe
11. Oblivion

For the new single and video “Your Anything At All” Imogen Clark roped in the many talents of director Jeremy Dylan who she’s collaborated with on all her music video releases to date.

“I wrote “Your Anything At All” in my head while on stage at one of my gigs,” says Clark. “The song covers defiance and confidence in the face of self-doubt, and rebelling with strength against someone who’s made you feel worthless. There’s vulnerability but also sass in the song.”

Brisbane based singer-songwriter Paddy McHugh has just released the video for his latest single “Down To Sydney”. Taken from his 2017 album City Bound Trains, “Down To Sydney” deals with issues around suicide, especially for young men in the country.

“Suicide rates in Australia are high, too high. Especially for young men in rural areas,” McHugh explained. “”Down to Sydney” is a story that has no doubt played out many times in every small town across the country. In the song however, the protagonist finds another way out – I guess I want people to realise that there are alternatives and there is hope even in the most unlikely places.”

Kiwi country crooner Marlon Williams has just released his new single and video “What’s Chasing You”. The track is the second single from Williams’ highly anticipated new album Make Way For Love which is due on the 16th February.

“It’s an earnest question,” Marlon Williams said about the track. “It’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to know of another human being. Like all good questions, it’s childishly simple. We all want to live inside the fears of the ones we love, if not to dispel them then at the very least to understand, empathize and let’s be honest, compare hands. I’m not convinced truly understanding another’s woes would really bring anyone happiness, but I am a nosey boy. What’s chasing you?”

Watch the video for “What’s Chasing You” below:

Marlon Williams will be heading out on an Australian tour this May along with Canadian singer-songwriter The Weather Station. The full list of dates are here:

Saturday 12th May – Forum Theatre, Melbourne, VIC
Monday 14th May – The Gov, Adelaide, SA
