Your weekend playlist starter is here. 5 Unearthed tracks we’re listening to this week, hand selected by our mate Spenser.
NTL Landmarks – Leave
Landmarks are no more. The Novocastrian three-piece have met their end, and rising from the ashes is the band NTL Landmarks. Their new and improved name is more hip, and more importantly, more google-able (is that a word?). If you want to welcome NTL Landmarks into the world, you can do so on Saturday, December 12th @ The Cambridge Hotel where they are supporting Lime Cordiale. You will get to hear tracks like ‘Leave’; a blues-soaked fuzz jam. Filled with energy, falsetto, and a pretty slick solo
SOUNDS LIKE: The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant
Lucky Luke – Welcome To Country
“Welcome to country, this is Aboriginal land / My history is different to your history, welcome to my country G“ sings Lucky Luke on his new song “Welcome To Country”. He’s a proud indigenous musician from North West Queensland, laying down some solid hip-hop with lush production. This new song is taken off his new album PlayinDaBlkCard which will be released on the 16th of December, the album will also feature his hit track “1 Day”.
SOUNDS LIKE: Pez, Kendrick Lamar
Lawson Hull – Who’s Already Here Belongsn
Lawson Hull’s debut single is ready to make an impact. It’s a strong indie rock track with some big guitar moments that really reaches for some emotional depth. The four-piece are tight on this track, and it’s got an earworm factor. Lawson Hull have everything you need to blow up.
SOUNDS LIKE: Matt Corby, Ben Howard
Matt Black – Moving On
#whoismattblack is the question that his Unearthed page asks, and it’s a question that is still a mystery. But here’s what we know so far:
1) They are from Sydney, Australia
2) They like The Weeknd
3) Their debut single ‘Moving On’ is a R&B soaked electro-pop track, with the singer crooning all over it.
SOUNDS LIKE: The Weeknd, Drake
KOWL – Can’t Forget You (Ft. Calypso Brown)
KOWL has returned! His last song on Unearthed was the banger that is ‘Who Am I’ that received significant triple j & Unearthed radio play. Now they’re back with ‘Can’t Forget You’, and they’ve brought Calypso Brown along for the ride too. Producer Cal Young has dipped his hand in many projects. Working with acts such as The Scientists Of Modern Music, Asta, and now his own personal musical endeavour. There’s some great groove in this track, and lots of intricate synth work
SOUNDS LIKE: Swedish House Mafia, Duke Dumont
