With playlist fatigue a regular occurrence, Getintothis’ Craig MacDonald is here with a triple dose of musical adrenaline.
As the Summertime reaches its pinnacle, what better time to give your musical collection a much needed dose of freshness before the darker nights draw in.
We are all guilty of it. Playing the same songs over and over again. But, with streaming becoming more and more part of everyday life for music lovers, the tendency to overplay those tracks you once loved to the point where they grow stale becomes an increasing risk.
Well, let us be your musical guru of sorts and prescribe you with a triple injection of audio medicine to awaken your senses.
Originally from Aberdeen, but now based in the sunnier surroundings of Sydney, Mossy is the moniker of one time actor Jamie Timony. Under his alias, the Scot has created a rich tapestry of complex sounds on his recent five track eponymous debut EP, to create his own unique blend of pop. From the funk laden melody of Shipping Yard to the synth heavy Electric Chair, he knits together style into a sonic cardigan around his echoic vocals.
Hailing from Toronto but now based in Berlin, Sway Clarke is easily one of the most emotive artists to burst through into the RnB scene recently. On his debut EP Bad Love, his smooth captivating vocals can leave you numb in an instant, such is the sheer power that he has at his disposal as heard on the tremendous Deepak Chopra. Expect this man to be causing major waves in no time.
Returning back to Australia, Sydney trio Holy Balm make off kilter free form house, that compels you to twist and turn your body with every glitchy sidestep they take. The three piece have a definite less is more feel to their synth soaked weirdness. Their latest single Fashion, taken from new album Activity, wouldn’t sound out of place if Ridley Scott decided to take up making Ridge Racer.
