Lie To Me – Vera Blue

24 April 2021

Speaking on the music video for the track, Vera expressed her love for “delving into new visual landscapes of colours, shapes, lighting and symbolism, and the idea of inventing an alternative reality that tells a story and captures the emotional roller coaster of falling in love again.” I think what struck me most about this description, was how much it compared with the surrealist qualities that I have always associated with night-time driving; far stretching roads, expansive landscapes, abstract and shapeless objects and a fresh vision which seems to escape me during daylight hours.

Motion Sickness – Phoebe Bridgers

20 April 2021

For Phoebe Bridgers, driving and the motion sickness that can oftentimes come with it, becomes a means of metaphorically translating the feelings of ‘emotional sickness’ that she herself experienced within an abusive and toxic relationship.

Dark Days – Local Natives

9 April 2021

The original version of “Dark Days” had originally been released in 2016 as a track on their Sunlit Youth album. However this version of the track features solo artist Nina Persson, a female vocalist which for me, seems to just heighten the track’s overall sentiment and its nostalgic storytelling.

Luna – Bombay Bicycle Club

6 April 2021

Taken from their album “So Long, See You Tomorrow”, this track was written by Jack Steadman during a trip through India, Turkey, Europe and Tokyo – that which is reflected through the menagerie of tones that permeate throughout it.

Drive Alone – Rose Hotel

5 April 2021

Released in 2020, mid-pandemic and quite frankly, mid-pandemonium – Drive Alone, through its bluesy’ nostalgia and low-tempo chilled out vibe, proves a stark and refreshing contrast to the chaotic context in which it was written. The track itself is a flighting yet restorative moment to breath, amidst what has felt like for many, a suffocating past year.

Your Light – The Big Moon

2 April 2021

“This song is about freeing yourself from all of it, just for a moment.” – Juliette Jackson

Sodus – Cemeteries

30 March 2021

6 and a half minutes of pure, evocative haze. Well worth taking the long route home.

Melbourne Blues – Eleni Drake

26 March 2021

Melbourne Blues boasts a gorgeous kind of moodiness, that renders it a status of classic vintage timelessness.

Every Time the Sun Comes Up – Sharon Van Etten

22 March 2021

And in one swift and fatal swoop – Sharon Van Etten painfully reminds us that each new day poses an entirely new threat of self-destruction and defeat. Damn.

Midnight City – M83

9 March 2021

This track, in all its ubiquity, uniquely captures the very individual feeling of the relationship between a soul and their exterior surroundings. An explosion of auditory colour that renders this track timeless.

Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby – Cigarettes After Sex

9 March 2021

Written by a band which is known for their dream-like musical style, this song captures the midnight melancholy of love, attraction, limerence – and everything in between.
