Amrap Chart News: Australian Music Moving at Community Radio

Mitch Fuller, 1st July 2019

To coincide with her return to Australia for a sold-out east coast tour, Brisbane artist Hatchie has unveiled her stunning new dream-pop single, Obsessed. The track, accompanied by the video (directed by Joe Agius), is the next glimpse into her forthcoming debut album Keepsake. It’s a dreamy, road song and the companion clip perfectly complements Hatchie’s sound with a nostalgic montage of her recent US tour. Obsessed debuted at number 2 on the Amrap Metro Chart this week, trailing just behind the latest from RAAVE TAPES, dancing because I’m sad. This one’s a no-holds-barred banger brimming with bold, foreboding beats and vicious hooks all about self-indulgent sabotage.

The Bambuseae Rhythm Section have made waves this week with Slinky Begonia – the perfect showcase of the Perth band’s control over their sound. The track is energetic, big-band funk at it’s finest, impossible to sit down to. Sliding into the number 9 spot on the Regional Chart, TBRS join a stellar line-up led by Mambali with Yuwani at number 1. With some help from acclaimed singer-songwriter Emily Wurramurra, Yuwani blends traditional cultural songs and rhythms with contemporary beats to bring the sounds of Numbulwar and the Gulf of Carpentaria to a wider Australian audience.

The Amrap Charts show the top ten tracks ordered for airplay by community broadcasters through the Amrap’s AirIt music distribution service in both metropolitan and regional areas of the country. Amrap is an initiative of the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia which distributes new Australian music to community radio stations nationwide & empowers broadcasters to promote new Australian music on air & online.
