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 Becca Hatch, DIIV, Dumb Things, Footballhead, Four Tet, Grievous Bodily Calm, MAGNETS, Nia Archives, Parsnip and Siobhan Cotchin!

Becca Hatch - Bass Keeps Calling

Hatch follows up her dreamy 2023 collab with Kian with a new single of liquid drum & bass style sounds that sees Becca’s soulful vocals deliver an ode to being in a crowded space, full of sweaty bodies and chest rattling sub-frequencies. Out now via Sony Music Australia.

DIIV - Brown Paper Bag

Beloved NYC dreamy-gazey-indie four-piece announced their fourth album and first in five years with a mesmerising new single of fuzzed out, hazy sounds (that is not a cover of the iconic Roni Size cut, nor the DJ Khaled track that inspired the notorious Lil B Kevin Durant diss, although I’d love to know what DIIV covers of all of that would sound like, but I digress). DIIV’s new album Frog In Boiling Water is out April 24 via Fantasy Records / Concord Label Group.

Dumb Things - Instant Coffee

Brissie-based indie-pop quintet returned with a mellow, melancholic new ode to the (somewhat depressing) ritual so many of us do on the daily - boil the kettle for a cup of that quick cortisol juice. Dumb Things’ new album Self Help is set for release later in 2024 via Coolin’ By Sound.

Footballhead - Overthinking Everything

Chicago power pop/alt-rockers continue to impress, delivering the fourth single and title track of their highly anticipated debut album that sees them bringing the golden era Midwestern-emo vibes into modern times. Footballhead’s new album Overthinking Everything is out March 1 via Tiny Engines.

Four Tet - Daydream Repeat

Since dropping tranquil new single Loved last month and alluding to a new album, this week Kieran Hebden gave us the name of his soon-to-be released twelfth album, Three. The album details come alongside it’s newest single (with Loved and Three Drums also on the tracklist), Daydream Repeat, a track that sees Four Tet doing what he does best - craft lush, layered, chime filled melodic sounds that appeal as much to home listening as it will the dancefloor. Four Tet’s new album Three is out March 15 via Text.

Grievous Bodily Calm - Cascades (Kuzich Remix feat. Mali Jo$e)

In a heavyweight local three way collab, atmospheric instrumental wizards GBC tap producer & vibe lord supreme Kuzich (fresh off his huge collab with POOKIE) to flip the title track of their 2023 album into a cosmic hip hop exploration, while prolific MC Mali Jo$e (who took us through his 2023 EP Breezecatcher and has since dropped a new mixtape) spits laidback bars perfectly in the pocket. Out now via Thought Tapes.

MAGNETS - Speak

Following up her latest single Down (that we premiered the video for here), Naarm/Melbourne’s Siobhan McGinnity returns as MAGNETS with a new earworm of soaring indie pop that features jangly, textured guitars and a driving rhythm section alongside McGinnity’s delightful vocals.

Nia Archives - Silence Is Loud

A year on from her Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against tha Wall EP, melodic jungle producer Nia Archies has announced her long awaited debut album with a new single that sees her exploring a new style. Retaining the jungle breaks, Silence Is Loud sees Archives taking cues from indie and Brit-pop while smacking a four-to-the-floor kick drum on it, resulting in addictive speedy house vibes. Nia Archives’ new album Silence Is Loud is out April 12 via HIJINXX/Island Records.

Parsnip - The Light

Melbourne jangle-pop maestros Parsnip returned this week with their first new music since 2020’s Adding Up EP, announcing a new album delivering a bewitching new single equally inspired by 13th century Persian Poet Rumi and Leonard Cohen. Parsnip’s new album Behold is out April 26 via Upset The Rhythm.

Siobhan Cotchin - Too Good To Be True

Currently on tour around the country supporting Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox Twenty, West Aussie singer-songwriter Cotching continues her hot streak with an emotional and anthemic new single that explores the familiar feeling of being confused by a new romantic prospect in a post-breakup scenario. Out now via Tone City Records.

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