His departure here makes this a stand-out in his catalogue, and surely a record he hasn’t made before. “I wanted it to sound as if I were face to face with anybody listening to it.”

apestpurMelbourne rock upstarts APES are about to release their ridiculously charismatic new single ‘Pull The Trigger’, and have just announced two single launch shows plus a BIGSOUND appearance. Busy, busy boys.

Concentrating this past twelve months on solidifying their fanbase and tailoring their sound, Apes are the archetype of a young act with a bright future ahead of them. Heavy triple j and BBC radio support has seen their star rise rapidly, as have impressive showings on the Big Day Out and Groovin’ The Moo stages, plus dates with Kingswood, Stonefield, The Love Junkies, Fidlar and Royal Blood. They’re currently catching their breath after tearing it up on tour with Band Of Skulls. Next stop is Sydney and Melbourne single launches in August, both tiny club shows that will no doubt sell fast and result in much beer spilt and many hands in the air, followed by a coveted spot on the live program at BIGSOUND 2014. Brash and tight, Apes’ live show will do them many favours as the band continue to work their way into the popular favour.

Lëura releases new single ‘Shallows’

lauraPurveyor of ambient heartbreak folk-prog, Sydney based solo artist Lëura returns with her highly anticipated second single ‘Shallows’. The poetic sweetheart left airwaves reeling after the widespread acclaim of debut single ‘Drifter’, which received substantial support from triple j and community radio, and praise from heavyweight online press across the UK, Canada and Europe.

Pushing forward off this wave of success, ‘Shallows’ paints a heart-wrenching representation of helplessly watching a loved one slowly drown in depression, whilst simultaneously sinking into the illness yourself. Lyrically, the ballad also echoes the complex agony of unrequited love, where both sides end up unintentionally pulling each other under. “And I sink trying to swim to you / I’m sorry if I sink you too”.
