NEW MUSIC PREMIERE: Mani Blu – ‘Turn Off The Radio’

Melbourne based singer-songwriter Mani Blu announces the release of his debut single ‘Turn Off The Radio’, a striking, grand new release, effortlessly fusing synth-pop influences with a modern flavour. The ballad draws influence from David Bowie’s ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and Spiders from Mars’ while Blü’s style as a whole seeks to encompass Warholian Pop Culture that is rarely seen in today’s music. “I wrote ‘Turn Off The Radio’ in about 40 minutes when I was just 19, the idea of the song was so strong for me” says Mani on the single. “The song is a double entendre for mental health and toxic love, for me ‘radio’ represents a transmission, a signal from one person into outer space, and ending up at the receiver, but all I wanted to do was cut those signals off” ‘Turn Off The Radio’ is a twisted love story that drips with an emotion and rawness unique to Mani Blü, introducing him in the most emphatic way possible.Continue reading

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Michael Burrows

Melbourne singer/songwriter Michael Burrows catches up with theaussieword.com.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? I grew up in a musical family where every year my mother would put on variety style shows where we all had to perform. She’d invite friends and a wider circle we didn’t know so we learnt quickly how to put on a performance. My cousins were all classically trained, and my brother and I could harmonise well. I had exposure from a young age to the Beatles but also quirky Australian artists like Slim Dusty, Chad Morgan and Rolf Harris who were actually really great hook-based songwriters.
