Sydney, you may not be able to get out and about to soak up our city’s glorious music scene but fear not, we’re here with a little silver lining.
NSW COVID-19 restrictions may mean we can’t throw ourselves at festivals and gigs, but to make sure you don’t miss out on all the good stuff Sydney’s artists have been getting up to, we’ve gone and done to hard yards and pulled together a list of all the best new music by local artists.
Here’s all the best new music in Sydney this week.
Ninajirachi is one of Sydney’s most exciting emerging artists. She’s a triple threat producer, songwriter and DJ who dominates dreamy and flawless tracks and has, just quietly, lent her talent in the studio to the likes of Flight Facilities and Hermitude. Her new tune Blumiere is atmospheric as hell, so treat your ears to it stat.
This brilliant Byron Bay mind now calls Sydney home and she’s dropped a new track that you need to know about it. It's called Green and we’re backing her with some big Halsey meets Bene vibes… but better.
If there’s one song that has been on rotation the last week or so—it’s been The Rubens’ brand new beauty called Heavy Weather. It’s basically about pulling yourself together when times get tough and we honestly don’t think this could be more relevant for times right now.
Your wind-down song for this week has to be PLGRMS’ new sonic perfection, Disappear. Slow, delicate and soothing, this absolute beauty is a big mood setter for any creative time you’ve got planned ahead.
“On My Mind”
Hailing hard from Wollongong is the uber-talented Stevan. This brilliant artist has unveiled a new single called On My Mind, which is an introspective and laidback pop jam. This one is packed with calming echoes, harmonies and a mid song rap—so it’s the full package, really.
And look—special mention absolutely has to be afforded to the legendary Tkay Maidza (she actually calls Melbourne home but we’re crushing hard over her new track Shook and you will too). Expect Maidza’s usual high-energy pace interwoven with some solid Gwen Stefani vibes. In other words, it’s the perfect track to amp you out of iso.
And why not crank these while you hit up the most stunning sunrise walks in Sydney?
