With so many dope songs coming out every day, it can be hard to keep up… but never fear, the Pilerats weekly wrap is here! Checkout our 10 favourite tracks of the week (in alphabetical, not favourite order!).
Daughter - Be On Your Way
English trio announced their first record in seven years with this beautiful new single of atmospheric and dreamy indie goodness.
Dulcie - Test Drive
Local faves kick off the year with a new upbeat, sing-a-long inducing pop banger, juxtaposing the uplifting composition with the melancholic vocals that detail the dreaded experience of a one-sided relationship.
Luude & Issey Cross - Oh My (feat. Moby)
Continuing his quest for global electronic music world domination, local lad Luude teams up with British vocalist Issey Cross and some dude named Moby… getting the original stems and blessing from the man himself, Luude has flipped Moby’s classic Porcelain into a drum and bass anthem.
Oozing Wound - Hypnic Jerk
The latest single from Chicago noise-metal trio’s forthcoming album is a two-minute heavy guitar riff extravaganza that’ll blow ya socks off.
Otik - Summer Ghost
Following up a big 2022 that included remixing Flume, British producer Otik returns to his own Solar Body label with the title track of his forthcoming EP, a sparkling & melodic, dancehall inspired affair.
shame - Six-Pack
One of our favourite music videos this week was also one of our fave new songs, with the English post-punks blistering new single making us even more excited for their new album next month.
Shana Cleveland - Faces in the Firelight
“Majestic” is the first word that springs to mind when listening to the new single from La Luz frontwoman Shana Cleveland, followed by “ethereal” and “beautiful”. The sweeping cut of folk-influenced chamber-pop comes alongside a delightfully bizarre retro music video.
Spacey Jane - Lots of Nothing feat. BENEE
The collab we never knew we needed, local legends team up with our favourite New Zealand pop-experimentalist for a dreamy rework of their 2021 hit.
Teether & Kuya Neil - Reno
The new single from the Naarm-based MC & producer duo is a breath of hip hop fresh air, with Teether’s hypnotic, clever, relentless rhymes on top of an experimental, genre-fusing, bass heavy beat from Neil.
Young Fathers - Rice
The latest taste of the English trio’s forthcoming album sees them embracing gospel-style chants on this joyful, spiritual new single.
Enjoy all of these track in one convenient playlist!
