Empowering Sydney-based songwriter and producer Fluir has released her stellar new single ‘Higher Ground’, encouraging listeners to break away from the dull routines that can take over our lives. 

The hook-laden track combines dance, electronic and pop genres in a sophisticated, naturally catchy way. Fluir’s gentle vocals compliment the propelling percussion and intricate production, paying tribute to the central influences RÜFÜS DU SOL, Kilter and Alice Ivy. Fluir explains:

“In the past I've spent unnecessary energy worrying about what to say and how to say it lyrically.  For this song, I wanted to be free from that and allow the music to be at the forefront.” 

She continues: 

“I'm constantly inspired by fellow DIY musicians and artists. Being a self-managed independent artist, being able to connect and collaborate with like-minded creatives always inspires me.”

Fluir has well and truly hit her stride after relocating to Sydney to pursue music as a full-time career; selling out shows, receiving radio attention, and making festival appearances. If the response to her track ‘Higher Ground’ is any indication, 2019 is going to be an exceptional year for the musician. Have a listen below.

Midnight Pool Party create the perfect silky-smooth late-night groove on ‘With You’

Midnight Pool Party’s eclectic blend of harmonising percussion, alluring pads and swooning guitars create the perfect silky-smooth late-night groove in their new single ‘With You’.

The Sydney duo tease us with another glimpse of their forthcoming EP they are writing, producing, and mixing themselves, with an exciting mixture of funk and dance.

The commanding vocals of Morilla give a voice to that feeling of sorrow where you’re going through trials and tribulations with the person you know you should be with.

The vocalist draws influence from Drake, Pharrell Williams and Anderson .Paak, and executes a natural, stripped back vibe in the track. 

Midnight Pool Party create the ultimate podium full of colour that showcases the maturity and growth of the boys over the years.

They created the demo back in 2014, but it didn’t have a title or lyrics; just a chord progression and general structure with a rough melody. Every now and then they would revisit the track, knowing it would be something for the future. Eventually, everything just started falling in place when they were writing songs for the EP.  

The producers have been in the music game for quite some time now, and you can tell ‘With You’ is a real labour of love by the way Oliver and Morilla persisted with it, until it reached its final form. 

It’s awesome to see these lads experiment a bit by utilising more playful sounds and exploring alternative genres. Make sure you check out Midnight Pool Party’s new single ‘With You’ now!

Melbourne's Price Park Delivers Heartfelt Electro-Pop Ear Candy On Jade Alice Collab, ’Someone Else’

Price Park creates an electrifyingly smooth and personal vibe in his new single ‘Someone Else’.

Joining forces with the gorgeous vocal sounds of singer/songwriter Jade Alice, the ARIA-nominated Melbourne producer says the track never really made sense until Alice graced it with her vocals.

A self-confessed “sucker for an electro-pop banger”, Alice reckons she connected with the song immediately because of the level of emotional honesty in the lyrics.

“Tom and I had never been in the same room before… but as soon as I read his lyrics and heard the song, it felt like I knew him.”

‘Someone Else’ has a very moving feel to it that we can undoubtedly all relate to on some level.

 Price Park AKA Tom Armstrong says the song is about grief, growth and change and in it, the producer illustrates an emotional snapshot of heartache, followed by a positive surge of inner strength.

The captivating ear-candy single includes an intricately-layered build, which is followed by an expertly assembled instrumental section combining electronic, dance, and modern pop flavours.

And we’re bound to hear more of Price Park’s brand of sweet melodies and lush instrumentation on his upcoming debut EP, due out later this year.

But for now, take his new tune Someone Else’ for a spin right now.
