Diana Anaid, the poster-child for 90s Australian indie folk music, returns with her new single “Can’t Apologise”.

Taken from her upcoming album My Queen (due 15th September), “Can’t Apologise” was produced by Steve James (Screaming Jets, Skunkhour, Sex Pistols) with a video shot on location in Los Angeles by Nick Egan.

“”Can’t Apologise” relates to the dilemma faced by friends tempted to take it to the next level,” Diana Anaid explains. “What happens when he/she gets with someone else, sacrificing both the relationship and the friendship? How do you have your cake and eat it too??”

We’re so proud to premiere the brand new video from Melbourne based folk singer Anna Smyrk, the stunning “House of Straw”.

The song was written by Anna Smyrk while she was staying in a Buddhist monastery guesthouse in Northern India during a backpacking trip around the sub-continent. The track itself takes inspiration from the darkness and whimsy of a childhood fairy tales and speaks of struggling to build up solid walls for protection against the big, frightening world outside.

The gorgeous animated video for “House of Straw” created by Melbourne filmmaker Bethany Young – check it out below:
