Music Moving the Metro Chart

Sydney based GLO has already made waves locally and internationally working extensively in visual projects/music videos for artists such as Sampa The Great, not to mention dance coordination for acts as big as Solange. Now, vocalist, the choreographer and multi-disciplinary artist has graced us with her debut track, Self Love. Teaming up with friend and fellow songstress Saskia, Self Love is the perfect showcase of the duo’s talents incorporating a smooth, stripped back groove perfect for the pair’s gorgeous vocals to lead the way. GLO is sitting comfortably in fourth place on the Metro Chart. Elsewhere on the chart, one of Australia’s favourite thrash-party headbangers, DZ Deathrays, serve up Still No Change, the punk-inspired third flavour from their newly-released album Positive Rising: Part 1. The track packs a raw punch sprinkled with hopeful moments and just enough catchy pop sounds to keep you humming along.

Leading the Way on the Regional Chart

Andre Camilleri is arguably one of Australia’s most prolific songwriters, having recorded thirty-eight full length studio albums since moving to Australia back in 2000. Now based in Canberra, Andre blends country, alternative and blues sounds to create unique sonic landscapes of timeless beauty. His latest venture includes his own interpretation of the folk classic, House of The Rising Sun. With some help from Mark Nunis and Clark Fisher, Camilleri blends wooden, jangly percussion with steely guitar and an ever-present ringing organ to take on the traditional tune from a swampy perspective. It’s landed them second place atop the Regional Chart just behind Melanie Gray with her latest, Drive Slow at number one. The Darwin based artist’s unique compositional style is undeniably influenced by the various panoramas, histories and cultures that make up Australia. Drive Slow beckons the listener to escape the city and get back to the big skies and wide-open spaces of the country’s road through the romantic and somewhat cinematic use of traditional country sounds and a huge, anthemic chorus.

Beyond the Charts

Step back and give yourself a minute because Yibby is back. After signalling his arrival with his debut Lost in Translation EP, the Sydney based hip hop artist teams up with fellow breakout Raj Mahal for new single Poke. More brash than his previous releases, Poke shows Yibby's diversity and ability. Fellow wordsmith Raj Mahal is enlisted to bring his signature energy to an explosive second verse. The track comes in hard with a jerky beat and crunchy production sitting somewhere between industrial and horrorcore. Poke might not be on the charts yet, but if Yibby’s sudden rise is anything to go off it won’t be long until it arrives in one of the top tens.
