With travel restrictions lifting in Victoria, let’s take a look at some new music (we’re talking 48 hours old max) perfect for that drive out of the city… or when you’re stuck in traffic heading out of the city. Check it below, presented by our pals Jim Beam:

Andy Golledge – ‘Ghost of Love’

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. As per usual, his smooth vocal delivery and staunch melodic sensibility roam free on a bed of acoustic rhythm guitar, twangy lead and a steady beat.

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

Haiku Hands – ‘Suck My Cherry’

As of today, dance-pop trio Haiku Hands can add writing the official theme song to a Hollywood film to their CV, with their latest tune ‘Suck My Cherry’ syncing with new horror-comedy Freaky, starring Kathryn Newton and Vince Vaughn. The track sounds like ‘Hollerback Girl’ on speed, with Haiku Hands incorporating that big cheerleader energy perfectly. Get amongst it:

Ben Gillies – ‘One Foot in Front of The Other’

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’. Incorporating some haunting piano lines, a healthy amount of saxophone and a very addictive vocal hook, Gillies takes us on an intoxicatingly dark trip that nails those 80s vibes.

Hot Donnas – ‘No Money’

Our cuzs from across the Pacific, New Zealand indie-rock four-piece Hot Donnas have unleashed a brand new EP Adventures of E-Wan. It’s chock full of wailing vocals, thumping rhythms and guitar-heavy jams – one that we can only imagine will be hitting hard on stages around NZ.

Sycco – ‘Embrace’

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:
