Canberra trio Safia have been having a stellar 2014. They’ve opened for Lorde and Elizabeth Rose, released some hot new tracks into the world, been announced on some massive festivals and now they’re about to embark on their second national tour of the year… did I also mention they have a new single “You’re The One” out soon too? With their schedule getting more and more hectic as we get into the last part of the year lead singer Ben Woolner found some time to answer some questions for us.

Sly Adelaide-based duo Miracle Daughter are taking it slow. Their first song dropped without much fanfare in May, and now they’ve gone and dropped a second gem equally as humbly. But I refuse to let them stay under the radar and so invite you to check out “With All My Love” – a beautiful mix of childlike melodies, deep chillwave beats and haunting soundscapes. Continue reading “MIRACLE DAUGHTER | WITH ALL MY LOVE” »
