Leading The Way on the Regional Chart

Brisbane songstress Sahara Beck is back with another adrenalized shot of art-pop on Queen of Hearts. The track itself is a testament to Sahara’s songwriting and vision, and her creative alchemy with studio maestro Tony Buchen (Courtney Barnett, Montaigne). Filled with glistening guitars, undeniably big beats and chased down with Sahara's trademark attitude and swagger, Queen of Hearts has debuted at the top of the Regional chart. Elsewhere on the chart, Mama Kin Spencer's What's wrong With Me?  has hit number six thanks to the duo's penchant for authentic roots sounds blended with contemporary flair. Warm, spacious and texture laden, What's Wrong With Me? is a deep and engaging new work from a duo acclaimed for their mastery of their craft.

Melbourne five piece, The Pink Tiles are back with a concept cassingle (who remembers those?). Two Sides of The Pink Tiles distils their pop sensibilities and existential doubt into a sharp, catchy concoction. Leading with Have You Heard, the band's sugary sheen is cast aside for a grungy ‘90s sound dealing in classic dissent carried by melodic harmonies. Have You Heard has landed The Pink Tiles the number one spot on the Metro chart this week with Kito & The Empress Of’s Wild Girl not far behind at number six. Kito pulls from countless musical influences, from the energy of dance music to the ferocity of rap. The Australian born, Denmark based artist has garnered millions of record sales for modern soul icons and pop royalty alike, producing Jorja Smith’s The One and Banks’ GimmeWild Girl is set to take on the dance scene with its effortless layering of club heavy beats and ethereal vocals.

Beyond the Charts

Staying true to their signature grungy alt-rock sound, Chavez Cartel's latest, Love On The Run is filled with gloomy vocals, slick guitar riffs and tight, rhythmic percussion. With bold lyrics like 'Feel me pin you in a vein and shoot you up through my arm', the track is a slightly twisted and deranged love song that focuses on the darker, more destructive side of love. It may not be on the charts yet, but this is a banger we're sure to hear more of.
