Remember Hermitude? Flume remixed a little track by them called ‘HyperParadise‘ a couple of years ago. Well they’ve gone and done a thing, and that thing is release another awesome single. It’s called ‘Through The Roof’, featuring Young Tapz.
Being based in Sydney, we were always bound to love them. But what they’ve done with this new single has just given us even more reason to love them. Not only does it consist largely of a pretty badass horn section, but it’s also very aptly named, as it’s likely to be a favourite on the dancefloor.
Hermitude have been pretty quiet of late so we hope this means they’re breaking back onto the music writing scene. Can’t wait to see what remixes come out of this very satisfying track.

This week a standout group from the Sydney music scene, with their freshly released single ‘Burden’ and soon to be released EP ‘Jabiluka’ are the Indie Pop trio, Yoke.
Corin Ileto, Julian Boswell, and Kyle Linahan, the three members of the group offer up a cool and rather modern sound that also draws upon some of the best bits of the 80’s and 90’s to create a rather nostalgic yet current pop approach. ‘Burden’ is their only release so far, but it gives an exciting taste of what they have to offer and what to expect from them in the future. Kyle Linahan’s vocal strength really is a stand out, his sound is interesting and has been perfectly mixed with the more subtle yet supportive instrumentals. The music video for ‘Burden’ is really quite beautiful, but also a bit edgy, featuring some of Sydney’s more grungy cityscapes, and perfectly reflecting the urban yet clean image and sound of the group.
This Saturday be sure to check out Yoke at FBi Social, undertaking their first ever public performance featuring tracks off their new record ‘Jabiluka’. Their EP, which was recorded with Nik Kaloper from The Jezabels, is due to be released in September this year.
