[Electronic] Little Daylight - Name In Lights

It’s only been two months since the release of “Overdose,” and yet we’re already treated with yet another single from one of this years most exciting prospects, Little Daylight. As far as follow up singles go, “Name In Lights” reaches a level of dreaminess that the first single could never quite find.
It’s a much more downtempo approach from the New York trio, showcasing their delicate fragile vocals over a set of ambient atmospherics. I have a feeling that this single is going to attract the attention of a lot of remixers, what with those sultry female vocals on deck.
Another solid single from the newcomers!

[Indie - Pop] Antonio Paul - Tra$h Party

It feels like an eternity since Antonio Paul started producing music. “City Dreams” was such an important track in my life and showed me how much of an impact music can have on one’s emotions. The Bunbury boys from Western Australia have always managed to make me smile with their quirky indie rock style, and today was no different.
What I love most about these guys is how overtly Australian they are in their songs. Their newest single, “Tra$h Party,” is testament to this, possessing ample amounts of Aussie hip-hop flair, yet enough precision in their rock deliverance to make this a truly entertaining number. I struggle to understand how these guys aren’t the biggest ticket in WA yet — they are just pure talent.
Hybrid pop like this doesn’t come around that often, so embrace it!

[Indie Pop] Fairchild - Burning Feet

I’m truly blessed to be living in Australia, what with all the talent that we seem to be churning out across the nation. Fairchild, or Fairchild Republic as they were formally known, are yet another upcoming Aussie indie pop band hailing from the Gold Coast in Queensland.
“Burning Feet” is their very first offering under the new moniker, and it’s good ol’ catchy indie pop with the band’s trademark bouncy guitars and sweet, sweet melodies. With production partner Catherine Marks in the building, it seems like they could be onto something special here (considering she’s helped build the success of some pretty awesome bands like The Killers, Foals and Death Cab For Cutie — they’re doing pretty well these days, right?).
Also, let it be known that Fairchild is no stranger to live performance. They’ve shared the stage with a wide range of Indie Shuffle favorites including Neon Indian, Parachute Youth, Last Dinosaurs and Flume.
“Burning Feet” will feature on their forthcoming self-titled EP, to be released in July.
