NEW MUSIC: Pros & iCons ‘Wild Hearts’

Pros & iCons celebrates the fervor of adolescent anarchy in their smash single “Wild Hearts.” The video sets a struggling artist on the street side of Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. After hot wiring a business man’s convertible, the singer jettisons his mundanity and explores the open road. He grabs his fellow street performers on his rebellious journey, culminating in an explosive performance beneath the sunset of the Southern California desert. The song expresses youth, celebration, and, ultimately, the fire burning in every repressed wild heart.

NEW MUSIC: Kainalu ‘Love Nebula’

Meet Trent Kainalu. An old Hawaiian soul whose most recent release, “Bloom Lagoon” is all about connecting back to his culture. The fond memories of playing in the ocean and feeling the sand beneath his toes inspired his part lo-fi electronic, part psychedelic rock genre that he calls “Hawaii-Fi.” By utilizing vintage analog synths and a 70s tape machine, the track was born. The strong bass line was Kainalu’s initial idea, and from there sparked the other various layers of melodies and beats. The playfulness of the instruments mirrors the lyrics, as they’re about being childish in a way, “sort of the feeling of wanting to be wanted by someone” says Kainalu.

NEW MUSIC: Client Liaison ft. Tina Arena ‘A Foreign Affair’

Diplomatic Immunity: granted. Passports: stamped. Tina Arena: boarded. Client Liaison share the new video for single ‘A Foreign Affair’ taken from their album Diplomatic Immunity, out now.

Of the video, director Tim White shares: “Long before automated check-in and liquids in zip-lock bags there was a time when the journey mattered more than the destination. This video is an ode to those glory years of aviation; when the airport was alive with mystique and prestige. ‘A Foreign Affair’ is an aeronautical love story exploring the elegant complexities of transit; the feeling of anonymity in the business class lounge and sense of community of the in-flight experience.’

On working with the duo, Tina Arena says “It’s been a lot of fun working with Client Liaison, from recording the song last summer and to crashing their set at Splendour, this clip ties it all together nicely! Grab a gin & tonic and get ready for take-off.”

NEW MUSIC: Siki Daha ‘SYDNEY’

Sydney Pop/Soul singer Siki Daha has released visuals for his heart-felt single ‘Sydney,’ The track reminisces the vibrant city of Sydney and how everything changed once the government bodies trying to run everything. From the rainbow crossing, marriage equality, to lock-out laws and the lack of cultural diversity. Siki notes that its time we stand up and make a change. “In my own way I wanted to sing about this and bring this to light,” said Siki. “The cover of the single is to show a city drowning with the water flowing down, and not being able to speak up due to the constraints the government and councils have put upon us,” he said.
