Over at Pilerats, we listen to a stack of new music each and everyday... Here are our 10 favourite tunes from the week that was from the likes of Barry Can't Swim, Bernice, Everything But The Girl, ELIZA, Frankie Rose, Gap Year, Gel, MK & Dom Dolla, Overmono and Private Function.

Barry Can't Swim - Sunsleeper

After recently touring Australia as part of Falls Festival, London-based producer Barry Can't Swim drops an uplifting & euphoric new single of piano-house on the legendary Ninja Tune label.

Bernice - Underneath My Toe

Two years on from their phenomenal Eau de Bonjourno LP, Toronto's Bernice are back with an exquisite new single of experimental pop. 

Everything But The Girl - Caution To The Wind

After making their triumphant return last month, legendary English dance-duo Everything But The Girl are back with a new cut of emotional, vocal house music, ahead of new album Fuse out April 21.

ELIZA - Midnight Rose

Following up last year's stunning A Sky Without Stars, a record that we made album of the week, ELIZA continues the late night theme on her new single of stripped back, irresistible neo-soul.

Frankie Rose - Come Back

The third single from Frankie Rose's forthcoming Love As Projection album (out March 10) is a high energy slice of synthpop, with plenty of nods to the originators of the sound.

Gap Year - Old Clothes

West Aussie indie band are back with their first new music since 2021 in the form of the jangly, catchy new single, Old Clothes.

Gel - Honed Blade

Our favourite New Jersey hardcore band Gel build anticipation for their forthcoming Only Constant album (out March 31) with this blistering new sub 2-minute single.

MK & Dom Dolla - Rhyme Dust

One of the most influential house producers and DJs of all-time (MK) and one of the biggest of the last decade (Dom Dolla) drop their long-awaited, much hyped Q-Tip sampling new stomper.

Overmono - Calling Out

Just a few weeks before they touch down for their Australian tour, English duo Overmono drop their latest single of forward thinking, boundary pushing UK Garage influenced sounds, sampling slowthai and CASISDEAD (meaning there's also that hauntingly beautiful D'eon vocal sample in there <3 )

Private Function - Jusavinageez

This 2 minutes of pure punk perfection from Naarm/Melbourne five-pieces brilliantly titled forthcoming 370HSSV 0773H album is an ode to the ever familiar, frustrating scenario of being interrupted in a shop when you're just having a geez.

From Q Bar to Domestic La La: The definitive story of Dear Seattle

With a quickly-selling national tour in May/June, the Northern Beaches band get real on their debut album, Don't Let Go.
