Sarah Blasko-God-Fearing

You could say she is a fairy! You could say that she is a troubled fairy! One thing is for real and this is her talent. Sarah Blasko has a very rare talent. The raw vocals and the incredibly dark lyrics, always trying to reach her inner self! The way to whatever is called "God" or "faith". She is from Australia with roots from Bulgaria. That's why she collaborated with the Bulgarian Orchestra for her last album "I Awake". The strings to each song can touch that last nerve you have deep inside and make that tear fall! “God-Fearing is essentially about being bullied. About feeling used up and spat out. When we shot it I was tired, jetlagged and a little drunk, and my emotional state was really raw. Some of it's really hard for me to watch because I know that my feelings were so genuine,” she says. This is exactly what you are going to watch here and read the lyrics! Enjoy the masterpiece! :)

The Tragic Thrills-Tears

You all know how much we love and support indepedent musicians and this band self-funded the whole debut album!

With Porter writing all the lyrics and trying to examine every word for its honesty! Their first single "Tears" is for those who thought that we can't fight for love anymore!

Cults-Go Outside

The Cults is an indie pop band from USA. Madeline and Brian formed this band in 2010 after they met at their studies! They became quite popular, leaving a mystery behind their dark lyrics and the happy melodies! Their first self-titled album had many tracks that every indie-lover enjoyed, but Madeline's favorite is "You Know What I Mean". "Go Outside" was their first single with great success and you will find yourself confused between the melody and the lyrics! Something weird is going on in their heads, but it is a matter of time to find out through their music. Ladies and Gentlemen... The Cults! :)

The Jungle Giants-Mr. Polite

Those Jungle Giants are coming from Australia, Brisbane. They went to the same school and they formed this indie rock-pop band in 2011. They climbed to Triple J's charts right away with their first track "Mr. Polite". The Jungle Giants' debute film clip delves deep into the world of stop motion animation. Over 2900 frames-each of them individually drawn on a white board-have been strung together to create a world in which chaos, cartoons, and console-inspired settings rule the day. You could say that this song is about love.... generally! :)
