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.
I’ve heard a mix bag from this dazzling actress-turned musician that is taking the charts by storm with her debut album, SOUR. With these soon-to-be global superstars rising with ferocity, what do you think to Rodrigo’s music? Taste of something different that we like – or heartbreak drivel we’ve heard before?
Either way, let me know your thoughts. If it’s positive enough, I may very well do an album review on SOUR itself.
Ever wondered what songs are on repeat so much, I get sick of them?
As of Sunday today, have a venture into my ON REPEAT playlist and let me know your thoughts on it all.
Have a great rest of your weekend, folks. I’ll see you in the new week for more album reviews, music thoughts and discussions. I’ll be starting a new job in the week as a Live Music Advisor, and so I may not be as on it with replying to comments as I usually am – so I appreciate all the support and discussions we’ve had over the past months. Take care of yourselves.
