Fresh Music Friday: Tones and I, Ngaiire, Flume
Rhea Thomas, Rory McHugh and Amelia Raines share their thoughts on three new singles from some of Australia’s hottest artists!
“Bad Child” – Tones and I
Rhea: This was good while it lasted but now, I’m over it…
Amelia: This one’s a no from me. No hard feelings.
Rory: Classic bop for ‘white-girl wasted Saturday’s. Prepare for instagram captions and an onslaught of algorithmic Tik Tok domination.
“Boom” – Ngaiire
Rhea: Her voice is slippery dip, silky smooth, but where the heck are the peaks?
Amelia: Silky vocals draped over a well-crafted beat, this is one you can chill to – I rate it!
Rory: Follows in a ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ Rihanna vibes for post-break up blues that will definitely penetrate charts
“The Difference” – Flume feat. Toro y Moi
Rhea: Dynamic! Layered! Kinda reminds me of the early days Rudimental?
Amelia: An easy listen courtesy of Toro y Moi, blended with Flume’s contagious beats – it’s exactly what you’d predict a Flume and Toro y Moi lovechild to sound like.
Rory: Great, classic evolution of Flume’s sound. This is definitely going to be a club staple for the next couple of months.
