So here’s my first ‘Music Spotlight’ post – introducing you to some of the best new sounds coming out of Australia right now. Every week I’m going to feature a new artist or band that I think is really worth a good listen, so let me know if there’s anyone that you think deserves to be in the spotlight!
This week I’m actually going to jump back a few years with Illy, one of Australia’s biggest rap artists. Now, rap isn’t my first genre of choice, but this amazing collaboration with fellow Melbournian Owl Eyes for ‘It Can Wait’ released in 2010 as part of Illy’s album ‘The Chase’ really does deserve your attention. I first heard it earlier this year, and it completely drew me in with some of the best chorus lyrics I’ve heard all year. It’s carefree, catchy and a song that I guarantee you won’t be able to get out of your head for days.
Have a listen and let me know what you think:
