Let us tinder match you with some of the BEST singles to come out this month. There’s a funked up dance-pop jam from Perth’s Palais, a powerful pop debut from Melbourne’s Belle Noble with incredible video to boot. Plus we dive into the ‘Deep End’ with Unearthed High Alumni Vincent Sole.
Vincent Sole – Deep End
After making waves with ‘The Game‘ across the blogosphere, Melbourne’s Vincent Sole announces the release of his anthemic new single ‘Deep End‘ plus two much anticipated debut headline shows.
Created in collaboration with Malcolm Besley (Northeast Party House, City Calm Down) ‘Deep End’ rises and falls gently, like a calm swell in the metaphorical water it references. Through it all, there’s a pervading sense of strength and ambition through uncertainty at the crossroads of youth and adulthood. “[The song] tells a story about freestyling the rest of my teen years and taking a leap of faith, to lead my life into something much bigger.” says Vincent Sole.
Having spent months preparing, Vincent Sole is set to debut his live shows in Melbourne and Sydney this April.
Belle Noble – Instinct
Fresh faced Melbourne hip-pop/RnB talent Belle Noble makes a stirring debut with ‘Instinct‘, a call-to-arms anthem pushing empowerment and self-awareness. Its video, full of electrifying spontaneous choreography, was created with help from visual luminaries C-KOL (Sportsgirl, Country Road).
Driven by commanding piano and flying resplendent on the wings of Noble’s unique and arresting vocals, the song’s message is elevated by its accompanying visuals. Each dancer in the clip had never heard the track or been given any choreography prior to filming: the process was entirely organic, raw, and individual – just the credo that ‘Instinct’ aims to instill.
Says Noble, “I want this project, as ambitious as it sounds, to remind us that we each have the power to do and feel what is right. Follow our moral compasses, be open but critical to what the media tells us, and give ourselves permission to listen and act according to our own instincts.”
Palais – Instant Crush
Perth producer Palais’ evocative first release of the year, ‘Instant Crush Feat. Your Girl Pho’, is a masterful mix of upbeat pop and synth-y joie de vivre. It’s the first taste of his impending debut EP Apolis.
This is an artist who knows how to build an interesting and nuanced world, where elements of pop, house, hip-hop, and electronica meld together to create a sound that is very much his signature.
‘Instant Crush’ is no exception, infectious in its relentless effervescence. Your Girl Pho, also a Perth native, transports the listener into a realm of nostalgic euphoria with her animated vocals; capturing the youthful innocence felt when falling in love for the very first time. Palais’ production perfectly blends with the vivacious vocals, pop-centric synths richocheting around them in a gleeful stupor.
