Kia ora whanau! It's been a good long while between emails, sorry - so here's a roundup of what's been going on!
High Hoops - Madly
This track is one of my faves off his new album - out now, defs worth checking out! It's definitely going to be a good summer spin, imo.
Yaeji - One More
I came across Yaeji during a Pep's Picks segment on RDU last year and damn I'm so glad I did! Her EP2 is consistently in my DJ sets, and this followup is real neat - it's a bit less clubby and more aethereal in parts, and real real good.
The Melancholies - Cute Aggression
This is a real neat one, it's Holly Coogan and Tom Young. It's real lush and also a really neat exploration of collaboration between partners!
namesake - Kōwhai
Something brand new - namesake are an indie pop trio from Wellington, and have been on the live scene for a bit, but this is the first single from their debut EP due out later this year! It's a lovely tune, distant and gentle at the same time.
Estere - Tokoleshe (feat. Raiza Biza)
I'm a huge fan of both Estere and Raiza Biza, so this is real real neat! It brings Estere's usual good, dancy beats but thickens them up a whole heap, and I really like it.
Merk - Hang
This new one from Merk brings a video with it as well, and it's real rad! I really like Merk's dreamy, poppy vibes and I'm glad they've been consistent in a way that isn't also same-y.
Finally, I've just published this interview with Hybrid Rose after her latest album, WARHOL, dropped last week! Check out the album here:
Til next time!
