With so much new music coming out each and every day, it can be hard to listen to everything, but we'll be damned if we don't try. Here are our favourite tunes from the week that was from the likes of FOURA & Jalmar, Gregor, HighSchool, I. JORDAN, KIAN; Mandy, Indiana; Ninajirachi, Odlaw, Parsnip and Sunbeam Sound Machine

FOURA & Jalmar - N.S.E.W.

In a huge Naarm/Melbourne collab, producer & DJ FOURA continues her hot streak on N.S.E.W., a big, wobbly and grimey cut that features bars from emerging vocalist Jalmar. Out now via NLV Records.

Gregor - Angels

Enigmatic Naarm/Melbourne alt-pop auteur Gregor delivers his second single for the year in the form of Angels, a gorgeously captivating cut that combines a simple yet effective rhythm section with contemplative guitar strums before the commanding piano lead takes things to the next level, while Gregor’s unique voice yearns “ lyrically for release from psychic forces alternately heavenly and demonic”. Gregor’s new album Satanic Lullabies is out May 10 via Chapter Music.

HighSchool - She Took You To Narnia

Now based in London, Aussie post-punks HighSchool continue generating buzz ahead of the release of their highly anticipated sophomore EP with the stark yet engrossing sounds of She Took You To Narnia. HighSchool’s new EP Accelerator is out April 19.

I. JORDAN - Round n Round

Ooooffft. Coming in super hot and at a high tempo of 145BPM is I. JORDAN on Round n Round, a euphoric, bass heavy old school influenced cut of peak time dancefloor destroying mayhem. I. JORDAN’s new album I AM JORDAN is out May 10 via Ninja Tune.


As KIAN continues his new musical chapter we’re blessed with latest single REGRETS, a nostalgic fusion of alt-rock, rap and r&b with plenty of pop sensibilities. Out now via EMI.

Mandy, Indiana - Idea is Best

Prolific Manchester danceable noise-makers Mandy, Indiana follow-up their phenomenal 2023 LP I’ve Seen A Way with a driving new single of experimental industrial techno-esque sounds. Out now via Fire Talk.

Ninajirachi - Hand on my heart

In a week of bangers, it doesn’t get much more bangin’ than Ninajirachi’s new one, going in on stompy, glitchy, tech vibes that channel the greats of the start of the millennium, with the composition switching from distorted madness to euphoric passages. Ninajirachi’s new EP girl EDM is out May 14 via NLV Records.

Odlaw - Car Door

A long time fave of the Boorloo/Perth scene (both in front of and behind the scenes), Mark Neal’s Odlaw are gearing up for their fourth album. The latest taste is the emotional gut punch of Car Door, a slow building affair that sees Mark and his trusty guitar alongside some very subtle drones before the tension is released in ecstatic fashion in the track's glorious instrumental climax and satisfying resolution. Odlaw’s new album Mi(l)d Life Crisis is out in June via Blue Grey Pink.

Parsnip - The Babble

Another highly anticipated Aussie album set for release this month comes from Naarm/Melbourne’s Parsnip, with the irresistible 60s-inspired sounds of The Babble the latest taste. Parsnip’s new album Behold is out April 26 via Upset The Rhythm.

Sunbeam Sound Machine - Creatures

Longtime Aussie dream-psych-indie-rock-pop maestro Nick Sowersby surprised us with a new Sunbeam Sound Machine EP this week, with atmospheric and hazy single Creatures drawing us into Nick’s kaleidoscopic musical world and showcasing what he does best. Sunbeam Sound Machine’s new EP Soft Signal is out now via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.

Enjoy all these tunes as well as a stack of other new music we've been feeling in our Spotify playlist.
