Hello! Welcome to another addition of Diary Of An Unearthed Super User, where Lunchbox’s very own Georgie Wilkie will run you through some of the best finds among the many uploads on triple j Unearthed in the previous week.
S.M.F.Y. – Eilish Gilligan
Eilish is back with another enchanting and magical beauty. Her lyrics are as fierce and creative as always but – this time she’s really brought out the big guns in the production and is starting to carve her sound and name. It really lets go and bursts – not dissimilar to the audio equivalent of firecrackers – and showcases Eilish’s soaring vocals in a way we haven’t heard from her before.
For fans of: Lorde, Woodes, E^st and Gordi
Neverland – Wallace
With every one of her releases Wallace has surprised me and made me fall in love with her all over again. Neverland is certainly no exception. The track is incredibly simple in its construction – made up of a stripped back bass line and percussion – but this leaves her spine-tingling voice to take center stage. Her control, passion, and soul are showcased in every note and every line is performed with immense skill and meaning. When it comes to acts that are beginning to secure their place as a star on the rise in Aussie music, Wallace has earned herself a spot at the top of the list and that’s an incredibly exciting prospect.
For fans of: Lianne La Havas, Ngaiire, Buoy and Sampa The Great.
Stranger – Lumaree
The debut upload to Unearthed from Perth musician Lumaree is a glorious, ethereal fusion of folk, pop, electronica and soul. The track swells in all the right places. It surges and showcases both her lyrical and melodic creativity equally, and glows from start to finish. If this is a taste of what’s to come from Lumaree’s next releases, then she’s definitely one to keep your eye on.
For fans of: Vera Blue, Emma Louise, Ngaiire, Maggie Rogers and Odette.
Oh My – Timothy Nelson
Timothy Nelson has been a buzz name around WA and Australia in recent times. His latest release, Oh My, proves why he deserves to stay that way. With insightful and honest lyrics, stunning vocal harmonies and the complete full band arrangement behind his timeless voice – it’s another clever release and easy listening from Timothy.
For fans of: Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Kim Churchill, Jacob Diamond, Boy & Bear and Mumford and Sons
Worth My Weight – Sam J
The Sydney producer uploaded two tracks to triple j Unearthed this week – one of them was Worth My Weight, an electronic-pop gem. The track travels from a funky, organ intro, into the heavily layered and intricate instrumental chorus – creating an incredibly intriguing and uniquely produced song – a great accompaniment to her other release Sleep In.
For fans of: George Maple, Alice Ivy, Aluna George and KLP.
