New Music: Bastille VS Grades 'Torn Apart'

Special Interview: Forest Falls

theaussieword.com catches up with Forest Falls for an exclusive interview...

What can you tell our readers about you? How and where did it all begin?
I was born and bred in Perth WA. In 2010 I decided that I wanted to take my musical career seriously and leave my comfort zone “home” - So I travelled over to Melbourne. I had heard there was a great scene there and that’s where I met Jamie. After that first jam it all fell into place naturally. I really loved the way he played drums - he has such great feel and skill. Jamie had played with bassist, Jeremy, previously in another band and invited him along. It completely blew me away just how well they gelled together. When Jeremy said to me that he knew a guitarist, I had no issue trusting his judgement and Gabe has been playing with us ever since. Hayley played keys and sung in the band for a couple years too but opted out upon graduating from her studies in Nursing. Similarly, Gabe travelled overseas to study for a semester and so we tried to fill the empty spots while he was away. We found two perfect candidates in Shaun and Lucy. As you can see the band has been evolving for a while but this line-up we have at the moment feels rock solid, I think this is and will be Forest Falls for a long time.

New Music: DALLI 'Down This Road'

Channelling a love of beat-orientated arrangements and captivating songwriting, Melbourne artist Dalli introduced us to his unique take on alternative pop through debut single 'Down This Road' which was coloured with influences ranging from Massive Attack to Radiohead.  After letting audiences mull over his debut effort, Dalli now returns with an accompanying music video for 'Down This Road'.
 
Romanticising  the idea of the unknown, the video maps the despair of those who try to control the elements and depend too heavily on the idea of certainty. Dalli's minimalist stylings make every beat hit twice as hard, and every lyric offers a resounding reassurance in relation to the unpredictable nature of life.
 
Already making waves across the country supporting Thelma Plum' on her 'Monster Tour', Dalli's soulful and refreshingly modern take on alternative pop has pricked the ears of listeners who are now keenly waiting to hear what's next for this exciting new artist.
