Going Beyond Genre! Triple Threat Of Experimental Musicians

BUOY with Clouds & Rain


One phrase and we’re hooked. BUOY frames her sound so delicately with a climactic soundscapes in her new single Clouds & Rain. The single is an elegant and powerful introduction to BUOY’s upcoming EP ‘Break’.

After releasing her debut EP ‘Immersion’ last year, the Sydney artist has found herself with a fast-growing fan base. Only a year into her project, BUOY is about to release her second EP and has already played alongside acts like Oscar Key Sung, Banoffee, and Rainbow Chan.

Her sound is an impressive, eclectic mix of percussive production, sampling, and raw vocals. After a modest entrance, Clouds & Rains takes you on a trip of a thousand sounds as BUOY climbs a syncopated beat with her smooth, R&B vocals. Carrying the track is a basic, jazz chord progression, which its simplicity acts as the foundation to the single.

The Demon Parade with Succumb To A Feather


An eclectic mix of a 90s video game soundtrack and Middle-eastern instrumentation forms the intro to The Demon Parade’s fresh single Succumb To A Feather. The song follows the Melbourne outfits’ 2015 release and tour for ‘Stone Circles ’10”.

By channeling influential psych outfits such as A Guy Called Gerald, The Chemical Brothers, and Shocking Blue, The Demon Parade have brewed up a modern fix of progressive psychedelia. With wavy vocals, a consistent beat, and a powerful dose of guitar, The Demon Parade set the standard for their highly anticipated album due to be released later this year.

The Demon Parade will hit the road for the Succumb To A Feather tour this weekend, details below!
