Listen: Archie Walker - Coldest

A little-known Sydney local releasing some superb spacey melodies.

Triple j Unearthed has been an excellent avenue for the exposure of upcoming and little-known artists in Australia for two decades now. I’m going to be honest here and say that considering the extent to which I love discovering new music, I very rarely spend time surfing their pages.

Just days ago, I stumbled across a Sydney artist by the name of Archie Walker, real name Tim Heal. The track in question being his latest, Coldest. Upon listening, you can tell why he’s listed his greatest influences among the likes of Bonobo and Hudson Mohawke. Coldest is a beautiful piece of twinkling and progressive electronica. Founded on an entrancing key scale and driving bass line, Walker reaches out, bringing you in deep. The track certainly has its desired effect, drawing you into a judiciously selected vortex of sound. If you’re looking for a slice of euphoric digital music – this is your one stop shop. This one makes me feel as though I’m somewhere in between being chased by goons in a film scene and riding that famous Rainbow Road circuit on Mario Kart.

Lesson for the day: spend more time browsing triple j Unearthed because there’s more to music discovery than SoundCloud and Bandcamp.
