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: Sannia

Sannia stops by theaussieword.com for a special interview.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? If my mum were here she’d tell you I was an uncomfortable active foetus whenever she played music in the car; I’ve always been obsessed with music and sound. I started piano lessons when I was four and for a long time that was the path I thought I would go down – classical pianist and composer, around fifteen I quit piano and took up singing because I just really felt the need to express myself even further, I was really drawn to poetry and lyrics and started writing my own songs and haven’t really looked back since.Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Michaela May – ‘Hook, Line & Sinker’

The brand new single from our good friend Michaela May is here!

Michaela May ~ “Hook, Line & Sinker” is a song about falling in love. I’ve always loved the phrase and thought it would be a more unique way to express the feeling when someone has you completely and utterly by the heartstrings. I wanted to write a happy, summer song that would hopefully make people feel good, as the constant news cycle throughout this past year has been incredibly upsetting and depressing. I wanted to write an anthem for the summer, a song that helps people escape and makes them feel excited about their life, significant other, family, anything! I just wanted to bring a bit of sunshine into a world that always seems enveloped by darkness.”Continue reading
