Calypso

Tasmanian musician, Calypso, has just dropped her self-titled, debut EP.

Of the EP, Calypso says,

“I suppose the main themes behind the EP would be growth and change…whether that’s within a relationship or within oneself. I think it’s a reflection on how life is constantly moving, and you have to adapt to your surroundings and learn how to survive through the changes.

The EP is also about the push & pull of love, how we can connect with other people and how we can move apart from one another as well. I hope the EP can take the listener on a bit of a journey, as they connect and relate to the words and the music through their own personal experiences.”

Each track has been influenced by old and new music, and we’re pretty sure would include the following tracks in Calypso’s’ ‘Winter in Tassie’ playlist.

Elderbrook – Be There Soon
This is the type of song I can listen to over and over again and not get sick of, chilled relaxed vibes.

Mansionair – Hold Me Down
Just a nice song to listen to when I’m in a nice song kind of mood.

Cub Sport – Only Friend
This song makes me feel happy and sad at the same time.

Pavel Dovgal – Faust
I really like the strings in this song and the intensity of the music.

Les Loups – White Clips
I like the rise and falls and the chorus is catchy and easy to listen to.

Yacht – Psychic City
This songs puts me in a good mood when I’m cold and stuck in a Tassie winter.

Dream Koala – Odyssey
I love this guys voice and the way the song builds up at the end. Its just an all round beautiful song.

Bea – Filthy Believer
Good memories from this track, long tassie nights with music to keep us company.

Elderbrook x andhim – how many times
I put Elderbrook in here twice because I’ve only just discovered him and I think his music cool.

Ngaiire – Once
I saw Ngaiire playing the other night as part of the Festival of Voices and she was absolutely incredible.

Saint Best – In The Morning

SAINT BEST

SAINT BEST

Copenhagen-based quartet, SAINT BEST debut the video for ‘In The Morning’; also a tribute to 1985 Japanese cult film, ‘Tampopo’.

Usually a time for the most weary, this energetic synth-pop number will get you dancing straight out of bed. And this pretty much sums up the SAINT BEST ethos; always seeing the positive in things and not holding back as there will always be tomorrow.

When their rehearsal space burned to the ground, along with all of their instruments, the foursome saw this as a new beginning, and thus began the new sound of SAINT BEST. The ruined guitars were substituted with synthesisers and samples. Inspired by nu-disco and new wave, SAINT BEST decided to make danceable electro-pop. “We were looking for a new dynamic sound and got together around a percussion and synth-driven sound universe”.

‘In The Morning’ is released via Fake Diamond Records.

Calypso – Numbered

Calypso

Calypso

This is a serious impressive debut from a female singer/producer from Tasmania called Calypso.

Of ‘Numbered’, Calypso says;

“The story behind ‘Numbered’ is quite obvious through the lyrics in the song; it’s about the struggle between two people as their love for each other is coming to an end – the painful experience of wanting to keep somebody close, but knowing that you will eventually have to let go.”

For a limited time you can also get a free download through Calypso’s Soundcloud.
