Our favourite glitchy beat-making trio from Melbtown I’lls have released the film-clip accompanying their hit tune Fifty-Phiphti. After watching the first few seconds of the clip I instantly think of the sun and the way that it moves and reacts whenever you see a close up on a TV doco (could also resemble an out-of focus close up of lights through at tree… those are my impressions).

It seems that as centuries pass, we find ourselves both craving for a better future and holding on to the immovable inspirations that made us.

Crunchy effected drums, abstract synth soundscapes, little elements of trap and garage pop, yeah Sydney duo Mary Rose and Chris Chidiac AKA Polarheart’s new track Livealie is something special. Aussie music is real en-pointe recently, there’s an energy emerging from the local newcomers and Polarheart are defiantly tapping into it.
