Freshen Up With A Triple Shot Of Electro Pop
SATIN JACKETS with Keep Moving On ft. Isaac0
Electro-pop maestro Tim Bernhardt a.k.a. Satin Jackets has a shiny new single for you, and you’re going to love it! The captivating contrast between Bernhardt’s warm, mellow vocals and soothing falsetto vocal fillers in Keep Moving On will have you hooked in no time.
In the chorus, the beat drop meets with glassy synth to create a late-night dance track vibe, completing the timeless recipe of simple lyrics, smooth vocals, and subtle electronic influences. If you’re a fan of delicate, restrained electronica (think Japanese Wallpaper meets Flume) don’t let this fresh new track pass you by!
Satin Jackets’ debut album ‘Panorama Pacifico’ is set to drop on Friday 8 April.
LUPA J with Numb
Penned when she was only 15 years old, 18-year-old Sydney songstress Lupa J’s new single Numb shows striking musical and emotional maturity. The sparse landscape of the opening lines will leave you unprepared for the complex rhythm and multi-layered arrangement of the song.
Intricate drum beats and guitar plucking create an off-centre, pulsing rhythm in the verses, with hand-claps to fill in the spaces. Lupa J’s solid high register allows her to deliver moments of purity and strength throughout the track, and as the final verse approaches, vocal intensity builds and she comes into her own.
Lupa J is currently gearing up to support Sarah Blasko’s ‘Eternal Return’ Australian tour next month. Her debut EP ‘My Right Name’ will be released later this year.

THOMSTON & WAFIA with Window Seat
Brisbane songstress Wafia’s latest R’n’B collaboration with NZ soul singer Thomston is steamy enough to give Usher a run for his money.
Not only is Window Seat’s deep beat and warm synth like a scientific recipe for relaxation, but the purity of this duo’s layered vocals will have you hanging on every word – and these are words worth listening to. ‘Boy, you’ve got me paralysed from the waist up/Got so much to say, but it’s better to run/‘Cause all the words wouldn’t be enough/You always like to speak for the both of us.’
It’s not all about the sound, though – in the verses, the clever lyrics are accentuated by tasteful moments of silence, leaving the song in perfect balance.
Wafia is currently on tour with her XXIX EP – don’t miss out!
