It’s technically the end of October but better late than never to present you with the next mixtape, right? Here’s five songs that have captured my attention this month.
Colourwheel – The Dreamer
New Zealand born, Melbourne based musician Brady Daniell-Smith performs as Colourwheel. Evocative and beautifully crafted, ‘The Dreamer’ is well worth a listen.
Japanese Wallpaper – Breathe In (Ft Wafia)
A gorgeous ambient tune featuring the soft vocals of Brisbane’s Wafia. This is the first single from the 16 year-old, and we can only hope Japanese Wallpaper continues to create music for many, many years.
Jack R Reilly – It’s Too Late I’m Already Awake
Soft spoken vocals and heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics, singer-songwriter Jack R Reilly is onto something good.
Little May – Hide
The second single from Sydney indie/folk three-piece, Little May. What’s not to love? Gentle vocals matched with flawless harmonies and rollicking percussion.
Archaeologist – Always Known Each Other
This Brisbane band dropped their debut EP a few weeks back, ‘Always Known Each Other’ is a current favourite. The whistling had me hooked from the start. The rich vocals, sweet harmonies and instrumentation have me tapping my foot along to the tune.
