Prolific Melbourne songwriter Emma Russack has announced the July arrival of her fifth record, Winter Blues. Ahead of the album’s release, Emma gifted listeners a small taste in the form of the record’s title track. The gorgeous piano-led tune see’s Emma copping to her own bullshit, taking ownership of bad behaviour instead of simply passing it off as a byproduct of miserable weather. We’ve got a look at the track’s brand-new visuals!
Following on from the release of their impressive full-length record Broadcast Park, Brisbane’s Tape/Off are today unveiling the visuals for single ‘Wake in Fright’. Influenced by the Australian outback’s vicious notoriety, the track and clip provide an unsettling snapshot of our landscape’s history and terrifying isolation.
