The 1975

Dom Youdan creates indie anthem filled with heart and sentiment

Sydney-based musician Dom Youdan celebrates the revelations that come with the passing of time in his new single ‘Pockets’.

Through featuring similar sounds to The 1975 and The Kite String Tangle, it’s no surprise that the new single is getting incredible amounts of traction within music scene.

The sonically beautiful moments catch you completely off guard as the track surges with pop sensibilities. In the substantially personal effort, the musician took inspiration from a close friend who was navigating a failing relationship.

The ear-tickling song is a journey of emotional cleansing. Dom Youdan explains: “The song is built around holding onto the things we cherish dearly, whether they’re good or bad, and keeping them so secret that eventually, not even we can find them. It speaks to moving on but also struggling to let go.” 

While the listener becomes absorbed by the mood of the tune, the warm melodies and intimate vocals combined with passionate lyrics stir sentiment. The intelligent method used to create the lyrical narrative is unquestionably evident and validated by the euphoric yet tender auditory moments.

As Dom Youdan struts into the second half of 2019, the artist is bringing ‘Pockets’ to Sydney stages this month. You won’t want to miss out!

Sydney’s Sinclaire Deliver A Toe-Tapping Twist On Heartache In Fresh Indie-Pop Banger, ‘Torn In Two’

Sydney alternative shooting stars Sinclaire are continuing to make waves with the arrival of their second single, ‘Torn In Two’.

The rollicking piano-driven bopper is deceptively uplifting, its up-tempo, off-beat grooves powerful enough to instantly replenish the spring that’s been missing from your step and tug playfully at your toes to tap.

But the track’s sunny disposition conceals darker subject matter about the pain that arises from a fractured sense self worth.

“Torn in Two is about constantly comparing yourself to other people and feeling like you always have something to prove,” explains lead singer Michael Cross.

“When I wrote the lyrics, I treated it like an open letter to myself - giving me an opportunity to reflect on the negative impact this personality trait has on my life.”

Cross’s rich, crooning vocal tones are nothing if not distinctive, and form the cherry on top of a captivatingly fresh indie-pop-rock sound that feels purpose-built for the international stage.

Sinclaire’s debut EP Now I’m Ready To Start, mixed by ARIA Award-winning producer Adrian Breakspear, will be released later this year. But for now, you can take ‘Torn In Two’ for a spin below.
