Beat Of The Week #16


This week’s Beat Of The Week hails from Oscar Key Sung’s title track from his debut EP, ‘Holograms’. With it’s chopped up, soulful vocals and peaceful atmosphere it’s an easy winner for this week. Check it out below.

DMA’s – Delete


The first thing I read about DMA’s is that, ‘All the people in the picture look like the product of multi-generational in breeding.’ So that was a good introduction into I OH YOU’s newest signing if any. Furthermore, the band have never played live but are expected to announce a tour for March.

Sonically, from their first single,‘Delete’ off their self-titled EP, they sound like a mix of Oasis using the vocals of Dylan Frost from Sticky Fingers. The second reference is no surprise considering that the clip was filmed in the same house that features at the end of Sticky Fingers, ‘Australia Street’ video and also has a cameo by Paddy (Bassist of Sticky Fingers). Furthermore, the artwork was done by talented Sydney artist Total Bore. In short, this single not only showcases a damn fine up and coming band but also the talent within Sydney. You can watch this song below.
