NEDA – Prehistoric Love

NEDA

NEDA

NEDA (aka Tenielle Neda) is an Australian songstress with a huge background in music.

Having worked with Mark Myers (The Middle East, Emma Louise), Wayne Connelly (Boy and Bear, Cloud Control) and most recently Neal Sutherland (Bertie Blackman), NEDA is now independent and sharing her new material, which includes ‘Prehistoric Love’; a track written with Perth duo, The Opposite Kids.

What struck us the most with this song is her original vocals, playing carefully with minimalistic beats.

Her second EP is set to drop later this year.

Sounds like: Feist, Emma Louise, Charli XCX, Alice Jemima, Zella Day

Alpine – Gasoline

Alpine

Alpine

Australian ALPINE have been on our radar for quite some time now. ALPINE is Phoebe Baker and Lou James (dual vocals), Christian O’Brien (guitar), Ryan Lamb (bass), Tim Royall (keys) and Phil Tucker (drums).

Since forming, Alpine have toured extensively with the likes of Grouplove, KimbraThe Naked And Famous, Matt Corby, Sparkadia, Cloud Control and The Jezabels, as well as recently performing at SXSW 2013.

They are set to support Empire of the Sun on a US tour this fall and have just announced that they will also be supporting the Foals on their Australian tour.

Their debut album, ‘A Is For Alpine’, released on Ivy League Records, is available on iTunes. The album was chosen as iTunes’ Australian Alternative Album of the Year 2012, and has received critical praise from both Rolling Stone and USA Today.

The album was recorded in Melbourne with producer Dann Hume who helped the band experiment with different sounds and textures. The album ranges from songs that rejoice their Scandinavian, melancholic sound to those that toy with more dancey, disco synths.

See below for the pastel pasted video for ‘Gasoline’. There is an official video on Youtube, but we much prefer this one.

Sounds like; Lykke Li, Phoenix, Foals
