It’s been yet another enormous week in new music releases. There’s some fresh tunes from new comers, rising stars and bonafide legends.
Of the new comers, Sydney’s Anatole released the first track of his debut album, with the beautifully cinematic ‘Like Deep Water’. Another Sydney up and comer Love Deluxe released the funky title track and final piece to the puzzle of his Silk Mirage EP.
Melbourne rockers Gold Class revealed ‘Get Yours’, another cut from their forthcoming sophomore record Drum, out this Friday. California artists Moses Sumney put out the absorbing slow burner ‘Quarrel’, the second taste of his upcoming album, Aromanticism.
Rock veterans Queens of the Stone Age unveiled the rollicking ‘The Evil Has Landed’, the second taste of their seventh album, Villains. Another veteran act, this time in the form of indie-dance legends Cut Copy also released a second single in ‘Standing In The Middle Of The Field’, from their forthcoming album Haiku From Zero.
There’s also ripping tunes from The Jezabels, Daughter and Touch Sensitive.
Track Of The Week: SAATSUMA – Crescent
Another single, another Track Of The Week nod for SAATSUMA. An enigmatic electronic duo composed of Memphis Kelly and Cesar Rodrigues, SAATSUMA’s latest offering shines a light on their pair’s production and lyrical dexterity.
Combining trademark smouldering vocals, infectious beats, warped synth and throbbing bass with entrancing melancholy, their latest single, ‘Crescent’, represents the new and future SAATSUMA.
The track reflects on the impact of the moon on human behaviour. Vocalist Memphis Kelly says ‘Crescent’ gives light to “our deep connection to the land that we’re often so unaware of… We’re often so resistant to work on and better ourselves, that we ultimately miss out on exploring this deeper sense of belonging, wholeness and true self-awareness,” she says.
SAATSUMA’s debut album, Overflow, is set to be unveiled on September 1.
