Inner-West alt-country crooner Andy Golledge just dropped his first new music since his debut EP Namoi and it’s a bloody ripper of a tune. ‘Ghost of Love’ sees him document his journey from his quiet rural hometown of Tamworth through to the city and the hurdles – self-doubt and lethargy – he’s overcome along the way.

Along with the release, he’s announced a run of shows in November. Head here for tix/info

Following on from his meditative psych-pop debut tune ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’, former Silverchair drummer/songwriter Ben Gillies has returned with delightfully noirish new tune ‘One Foot in Front of The Other’.

Bringing an R&B flavour to PNAU’s ethereal banger, Brisbane’s Sycco continues to take steps in securing her next-big-thing title. She also roped in fellow Brisbanians (Brisbanites? Brisbaners?) Clea, Asha Jefferies, and Hallie as well as half of local band First Beige; Oscar Borschmann, James Halstead, and Jasper Gundersen to bring the track to life. Dig in:
