Song of the Day: Pacific Avenue’s Something Good

Drawn from their 2019 debut EP, Strawberry Skies, it emphasises our love of summer, traditional holidays in the sun, and taking life one relaxing day at a time.

The Australian 4-piece brings fantastic contemporary indie flavours and blends of timeless rock that stays fresh in the sunlight. “Something Good” is the epitome of their work so far, as it demonstrates their knack of rock calling and have become one of the best emerging talents in the Aussie country.

Plenty to bring too, with their recent flurry of excitement, Easy Love – which is another timeless indie summer classic.

You could very well argue how oversaturated we are already with summer indie tunes. But, there’s definitely a reason as to why there’s so many compilations abound.

We simply can’t get enough of ‘em.

Music: Prove Your Worth

In a time where we see and learn thousands of musicians, there comes a time when we prove our worth. And how do we do that? A new song, a new EP collaboration? A new social media crave to jump on board with? Or is it merely a sit down and a talk with our ever-growing fan base?

In a world where attention and opportunity is everything in an online world, it’s time for our musicians to prove their worth.

Let’s Talk: Can music cure our planet?

_____

It might sound CRAZY but – – can music help our planet? Let me explain … there are studies out there that show music promotes plant growth!

Some plants have been known to grow an extra 20% when played music compared to plants that didn’t have the joyous tones of music.

_______

But what music I hear you ask…? Well, funnily enough plants that were played rock music didn’t thrive in that environment, they actually died within a few weeks – so sorry Korn, looks like you won’t be saving the planet anytime soon!

But instead, plants that had the relaxing tones of classical music thrived in that environment – promoting the aforementioned 20% extra growth in plants.

So I go back to my original question, imagine if music could cure our planet… Unfortunately it’s not likely that it will, but it would be amazing if it was that simple. It really does show the impact music has upon living things, and the greater positive impact it has upon them. (Even if they don’t appreciate a heavy drum beat and ground breaking guitar solo).

We edge closer to live music ..

As the sun peaks in the highest point in the sky, communities resume normal routines and we’re investing in entertainment in the Arts, we’re slowly edging that bit closer to the concept of live music. With festivals planned to go ahead in the back end of August and with tours booked in Autumn of 2021 – not to mention the Download Pilot coming up in June/July – it’s so close!

Anyone got any plans when we return to normality with live concerts and gigs?
