Hear two rad new releases from female/LGBTQIA-focused Aussie label, Listen Records

Fresh new music from a fresh new Australian label.

Late last year Listen Records (WEBSITE / FACEBOOK) was launched to support, promote and distribute the creative output of underground Australian female and LGBTQIA+ artists, and today we're very pleased to share a couple of new tracks fresh off the press. First of the two is the work done by Stina Tester and Cinta Masters on their new track Deep Sleep. Emphasising and being inspired by the 1970s and 1980s era of genres including: goth, post-punk and synth-pop artists like Delta 5, Pylon and Depeche Mode, it feeds emotions through themes of darkness and mystery alongside upbeat pop sounds. They have an album on the way for April, have a gander below. If anyone rememembers the extraordinarily rad band Pretty Girls Makes Graves you'll find a lot to love here:

And the second track is from Beloved Elk, called The Light of Dead Stars, one that showcases their obsession for dynamics, subtlety and candid storytelling. The vocals have a quintessentially Australian sound to them, bringing to mind artists like Courtney Barnett, although with a sound reminiscent of acts like Warpaint and Explosions In The Sky. Have a listen to The Light Of Dead below, and grab it on the full Close EP HERE.
