Read on below!
Every now and then your Spotify Discover Weekly playlists delivers the goods. I came across one of AKUA’s tunes and instantly fell in love with her whole album. There’s something Kate Bush-y and sentimental about her tunes, plus they’re loaded with heart and her stunning unique vocal melodies.
I have nothing but praise for Erika the saint. She does that nostalgic RnB like no other artist I have heard - plus she posts has a cute and kitsch social media presence, including posting motivational advice on how to stay san throughout Covid-19 lockdown.
A beautiful, young artist from Melbourne, I’m really keen to hear more from her! She has that old-school-wise-beyond-her-years type steez that makes you want to play her tunes while sipping on a glass of Sangiovese on your lawn overlooking the lake on a sun-drenched weekend afternoon.
My boyfriend found a drum and bass bootleg of one of Koffee’s songs (which slaps by the way!) but her original stuff is also fire! A multi-instrumentalist/DJ/rapper from Jamaica, Koffee keeps it super interesting and is a must for a Monday morning pickup.
There are sooo many neat female singers and musicians right here at home killing it - Maina Doe is case in point! I wish we had a bigger community radio platform or some equivalent of triple j that really gave them the airtime. Maina Doe is so sick and can’t wait to hear more from her.
