BEDDY RAYS – BEDDY RAYS

Album

These Aussie boys are a fun-loving, carefree bunch whose music revolves around good times and looking after your mates, and their debut, self-titled LP should find them welcoming more friends into their gang, such is the quality of the indie-rock in which they deal. A celebration of friendship and folly, this is, despite its creators’ easy-going demeanour, a serious statement of intent. When it comes to musical pick-me-ups, this quartet have produced one of 2022’s best so far. – KERRANG!

SINGLES

Genesis Owusu – GTFO

Genesis Owusu has returned, entering a post-‘Smiling With No Teeth’ era with new single ‘GTFO’. It’s a slow-burner that sees Owusu delivering introspective verses above a woozy, choral backdrop, before warbled synths and a marching drum-like beat foreground the deceptively triumphant refrain: “Get the fuck out.” “Bankruptcy, depression, sickness; God himself can try to stand in the way, but a struggler has to keep struggling. And a Roach has to keep Roaching. Even when it’s told to GTFO.” He concluded: “SWNT SZN OVER, NOW GTFO.” – NME

FISHER – World Hold On (Rework)

The Fish has given Bob Sinclair’s 2006 smash hit, “World Hold On,” a new look for 2022. It can be a tall task to breath new life into a tune that once ruled dance music circles, but FISHER seems more than up to the task. Rather than fix what’s not broken, Fish chooses to enhance it, adding a reinforced bass line ready to elevate any party through a stratosphere of euphoria – thissongissick

G Flip – Waste of Space

Dubbed ‘Waste Of Space’, the track is a heartrending indie-rock ballad reflecting on the artist’s gender identity. A candid account of the inner turmoil, self-loathing and social rejection they felt growing up identifying as non-binary and not understanding why they didn’t fit in, ‘Waste Of Space’ is undoubtedly set to galvanise G-Flip’s status as a queer icon and probably save some lives in the process – Music Feeds

Young Franco – Like That

If you want more spring in your step this week, the new funky, feel-good hit, Like That by Young Franco, Pell and Jafunk will do the trick. Showcasing energetic bass lines, a fiercely-addictive beat and Pell’s slick bars, this flawlessly-produced R&B/hip hop single is the perfect Monday morning pick-me-up to start your week off right! – Happy Mag

Telenova – Scarlet

Melbourne indie-pop trio Telenova have shared ‘Scarlet’, the third single to be lifted from their forthcoming EP ‘Stained Glass Love’. “This song is about those sudden (often unexpected) floods of helplessness that hit us from time to time. Call it anxiety, panic, loneliness, depression, just plain old sad… trapped and stuck in your own head and crying out for an escape,” frontwoman Angeline Armstrong said of the band’s latest. – NME

HOT CONTENT

King Stingray – triple j’s Like A Version

King Stingray are the latest band to take on triple j’s Like A Version segment, opting for a cover of Coldplay‘s ‘Yellow’. The Yolŋu outfit have made the 2000 hit very much their own, with the addition of banjo, didgeridoo, bilma and lyrics in Yolŋu Matha, courtesy of vocalist Yirrŋa Yunupiŋu. He carries the song with his powerful, distinct voice, while guitarist Roy Kellaway throws in an enthusiastic and masterful solo towards its latter half. – NME
