Sydney based Allan Smithy just released AIR which comes off his debut EP I See A Palm Tree.
The EP was recorded in Sydney and Melbourne, with producers Tom Iansek (Big Scary) and Wayne Connolly (You Am I, Paul Dempsey).
He kicked off with his debut single The Streets which saw plays on Triple J, and with FBi Radio naming him Independent Artist of the Week.
There is something special about Smithy which separates him from the other indie popsters. Check out the video for AIR.
Toronto based trio Bravestation hits home with the 80’s influence 13th Floor. It’s hard not to love this track. Ironically, the name of the band comes from the novel Brave New World and Robert J. Hasting’s essay The Station.
The buzzing synth pop act has won over blogs with the latest track including I Heart Moosiq and had placements with Apple Hot Tracks and Spotify New Music.
Kings favorite Felicity will perform in New York City at Rockwood Music Hall on Nov 9th (8:00pm).
As I mentioned before, South Africa is proving to be a hub for talent. The buzzing 18 year old power pop vocalist has come to the forefront of the music scene. Inspired by Adele, Sia, and Celine Dion — Felicity cuts right to the chase with the track ‘Burnt Sugar‘. Filled with catchy one liners and memorable hooks, Felicity is an artist to watch.
Born in Australia and having settled in Cape Town, she now splits time between Colorado and NYC. Having hooked up with producer Brian Kierulf (Mike Posner, Lady Gaga) she released the track Poison which has surpassed 100k streams on Spotify and the newly Burnt Sugar.

Anna Taylor made her rounds auditioning for singing competitions like NBC’s The Voice, while winning Rockestra “American Idol” in Sioux City before joining 35th and Taylor.
The band just released the 10 song album I Know You’re Trouble which they recorded in Nashville with producer J Hall (Young The Giant, Hidden Hospitals).
Not sure where the band fits in genre wise; the three piece took a risk with the lead off track I Know Your Trouble. With risk comes reward, and some of the best work comes with no boundaries. According to Taylor, “it’s the first release that truly feels like their own sound.”
All under the age of twenty, the four members are no strangers to the road having toured extensively in the Midwest.
5 piece act Wet Leather has released the catchy Secret Preference. It’s not an easy task to pin down the bands sound, but they dub their bedroom funk recordings as anxiety-pop. Fair enough!
The latest track is the follow up to the ultra cool Shame and the quirky Yours & Mine. The indie band which formed in NYC just wrapped performing the Indie Shuffle showcase.
