[Alternative] The Neighbourhood - Wires

I’ve been crushing on The Neighbourhood’s “Sweater Weather” for a few weeks now. So I'm pretty stoked that their EP, I’m Sorry is out on Monday. Check out new hip hop-leaning cut “Wires.”. I’d put money on The Neighbourhood being the next indie pop sensation to chip away at David Guetta-esque house-pop’s stronghold on American pop.

[Pop] RAC - Hollywood (ft. Penguin Prison)

RAC brings us one of his first originals of 2012 “Hollywood”, in collaboration with Penguin Prison’s Chris Glover to create this pop-rich summer-friendly feel-good track. It's a jolly little tune that puts a groove in your step without hitting hard. So strap on the sneakers, shake a leg and let loose — your hipster cred will skyrocket.

[Indie - Pop] Cub Scouts - Do You Hear

Oh would you look at that, the Cub Scouts are back. I'm assuming you guys remember the song 'Evie' that was posted near the very beginning of time/Vinyl Wall. Finally the 5 piece band from Brisbane have followed it up with 'Do You Hear' which is nothing short of the essence of Cub Scouts. I mean seriously the fact that these guys are not that well known still is bewildering.

[Synth - Pop] Whispertown - Open The Other Eye

“Open the Other Eye” is such a great synthy-pop track, with guest vocals by Maria Taylor. You can shimmy to it or sit back and try to interpret the deeper meaning of opening your other eye. There seems to be a greater focus on female indie projects these days as Lana Del Rey hype is dying, and hype for Grimes new album is surging.

[Indie - Pop] Collectors Club - First To Know

Collectors Club first release from their own label oozes bouncy guitar work and bubbly percussion that you craved so deeply in your life. ‘First to Know’ sees the band opening up an emotional side, with lead singer Joe Smithson telling of tales of love and broken ideals. But despite the downhearted nature, it builds in to a bright and flowing chorus.
