New to Radar this Week
City Girl – The Jezabels
Now don't get me wrong, we LOVE the Jezabels here but this new video just doesn't have the same feel as their other stuff. It actually inspired us to write a story on videos that ruins songs - check it out here
Mercy Killer – Bertie Blackman
Finally, Bertie is back. I'll be honest, I am a little excited. It's been a while since we've heard anything from Bertie but I am confident this will be a tres good album
Heard It All – Illy
In 2010 Illy dropped The Chase and ever since, we've gotten behind everything he does. This is a very good first single from an album that's gonna drop in a few months.
Trembling Hands – The Temper Trap
The second single, yes I know we've heard three but remember 'Rabbit Hole' was "leaked" - everyone has an opinion on new Temper Trap and I mean EVERYONE
Everybody – Pnau
One of the most underplayed albums of last year. Soft Universe is chockablock filled filled with hits so it excites me a lot that we're playing track one from that album.
Big Man – Boy & Bear
This'll be the last song we hear from Boy & Bear's Moonfire BUT if you go to one of their shows, they're busting out some new material. GREAT SUCCESS
Slow Burner – Millions
The won a Facebook competition but only just.
Ask any racer, any real racer. It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning's winning." - Dom, The Fast and the Furious. PS. I had to ask around the office if it was ok to put that in. Millions are from Brisbane - and yep - they're in our TOP 20 Brisbane Bands You Need To Check Out, so do it.
One Heart Million Voices – New Empire
If you've watched Channel 9 in the last month, there's no doubt you would have heard this song all over their ads for the Olympics. What a HUGE honor for these Sydney boys.
