The latest single from Sydney alt-country singer Katie Brianna’s 2016 album Victim or the Heroine is the wonderful “King”. The track is one of the most upbeat on the album and deals with themes of admiration, love, loyalty and desperation

“I guess the desperation part is giving yourself over to someone completely, telling them that they become your world and maybe that they are that one person who gives you a reason to be,” Brianna explained.

“King” has been released with a gorgeous video from Lyn Taylor – check it out below:

Sydney folk singers All Our Exes Live In Texas have just released their brand new video “Boundary Road”. The track is taken from their up coming album When We Fall (due on the 3rd March).

Katie Wighton from the band says the song started at a breakfast with her Mum. “Something happened and all of a sudden we were having this huge fight on Boundary Street, in Brisbane’s West End. I don’t even remember what it was about but eventually she broke down and said “What if I want to be the one to fall apart once in a while?” My mum is pretty amazing at pretending things are okay when they really aren’t. I suppose most parents are. This song is for anyone who feels like they have to be strong and brave for those around them. I hope it gives you permission to fall apart every now and then.”

Broads Announce Debut Album Vacancy

Melbourne alt-country crooners Broads have announced plans to release their debut album Vacancy on the 24th February. The album is the duo’s first release since their amazing 2014 self-titled EP.

“Vacancy is our first full length album, and first venture into a denser, more orchestrated sound than our original duo,” Kelly Day and Jane Hendry explained. “We stole some of our favourite Melbournians to join the two of us on the record, and explore the possibilities of turning it into something quite cinematic. In saying that, the sounds we’ve put together are still fairly sparse. The album turned out to revolve around ideas of emptiness, or hollowness, and you can’t tackle that without really making use of space. That will always be a big part of what we do, and we’re thrilled to have managed to keep that feel with a full band involved.”

Broads will be touring Vacancy soon (dates to be announced). Check out the video for the single “Nod Off, Dream” below:
