Elizabeth has firmly cemented her place in Melbourne’s music community for the better part of a decade, touring extensively locally and internationally, notably throughout Europe and the UK as part of indie-pop group Totally Mild. Elizabeth’s solo work is brimming with personal reaffirmation, empathy, compassion and heartache. Her latest single, Parties debuted at number one on the Metro Chart this week and in her own words, ‘it’s a banger designed for sad girls and those who love them’. Not far behind at number four, Melbourne based outlaws, Wagons return with Keep On Coming Back. Staying atop their unique tidal wave of hard-hitting, swamp rock madness, the track is a strangely cathartic ‘collection of memories, strange habits and scars’ laid out with guitar-driven momentum.

New to the Regional Chart

Recent graduate of the 2019 CMAA Academy of Country Music senior course, Kylie Gale has realised her debut single, Push Back and jumped straight to number one on the Regional Chart. Based out of Caves Beach on the mid-north coast NSW, Gale has been playing music since childhood, though the Academy course provided her with the drive to finally record her work. The track is a powerhouse ballad of resilience propelled by contemporary country licks. Sneaking into the charts at number 10, Leanne Tennant returns with Bring It All Back – a synth laced soundscape that carries her melodic, catchy vocals perfectly. The Cairns-based artist captures the challenges of civil discourse in the current social climate with effortless cool.

Beyond the Charts

Nooky burst onto the scene almost a decade ago after moving from Nowra to Sydney, gaining attention for his unmatched rhymes and technical rap style. Now, he has returned with Numb – a broadening of the multi-disciplinary artist’s unapologetic attitude in taking a step back from his usual fiery lyricism. Nooky slows down in order to draw focus to his honest songwriting in an exploration of addiction and abuse all backed by warped trap beats thanks to regular collaborator and producer, Solo. It may not be on the charts this week but Nooky is known for moving up the ranks with ease.
