This week in music featured some awesome new releases from BATTS, Basenji, COLU, and HWLS!
Following his recent collaboration with Flume, High Beams (feat. slowthai) on his ‘Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape)’, HWLS is back with a brand new EP; ‘Ep03’. Each track showcases some really interesting sound design; often utilising metallic textures and hollow synth sounds to create alien-like soundscapes. Although only four tracks long, the EP is without a doubt one of the coolest electronic releases of the year.
Similarly, Basenji surprised us with his new track Perfect Blue with Sydney’s own four-piece group; Erthlings! Both signed to Future Classic, the song combines both Basenji’s electronic bubbly style with Erthlings angelic and dream-like aesthetic.
