Gretta Ray was this year’s winner of the Triple J Unearthed High comp, and it’s been a well-deserved prize.
Her winning track ‘Drive’ is delightfully sweet, and as the name might suggest, perfect for a road trip. It has lovely little melodies that go the way you want them to at first, but then twist and turn at the last second. I recently found myself listening to it on a road trip from Seattle to Vancouver and will admit, it was the perfect soundtrack for falling in love!

But just when you thought your ears couldn’t be more at ease, she’s gone and released another killer track called ‘Unwind’. It’s another beaut’ acoustic rock song – she’s got a really relaxed way of dancing about melodies that will fill you with joy, listen for yourself:
Just two words for Gretta: more please!

So if you want to steer clear of the crowds for Mardi Gras and take advantage of the no lock-out law zone this Saturday night, then head to Newtown Social Club!
If ever there was a soothing song for your Sunday, it might just be this startling track, “Arrival” from Japanese Wallpaper. The tune caps off the Melbourne producer’s solid five track EP Japanese Wallpaper, with some incredible collabs, including Pepa Knight, Airling and Jesse Davidson.
This particular song features vocals from one of our faves here at Vinyl Garden, Sydney artist Dustin Tebbutt. The two artists are a match made in heaven with this collab, with Japanese Wallpaper adding colour to Dustin’s wistful melodies. They are both very gentle in their songwriting and performing styles, so it really is a treat to listen to:
I was lucky enough to catch Dustin Tebbutt at the Metro Theatre on Thursday in his collaboration show with The Kite String Tangle, and one thing I really took out of it was how wonderful it is, this trend emerging in the Australian music scene of collaboration over competition. Artists helping each other out, making incredible stuff together.
Japanese Wallpaper has been very smart about this in this EP, and at only 18 years old, I’m just keen to see what he will do next, and who we might see on his next track.
