Our top 5 tracks for the week

We're one week into Feburary and the releases have been flowing in nicely. Here are our top five releases from Jan 30 to Feb 6.


5. Kita Alexander - All Night (feat. LAUREL)


Fresh off placing at 189 on the Hottest 200 with 'Best You've Ever Had', Kita's back with the same catchy hooks and baseline. The Byron Bay musician teams up with LAUREN for this track, which is off her upcoming album 'Young In Love'.


4. Zailya - Be Forever


This is just Zailya's second release, but the talented Central Coast musician explores some new sounds compared to her first track, released just last month.


Be Forever shows hints of an acoustic/R&B blend, reminiscent of some of the best pop tracks in the 90's/00's. The sweet, almost innocent acoustic guitar and vocals shine through and highlight the message of the song.


3. Chelsea Berman - If I Had A Daughter


Following on from her previous singles 'Break Up Again' and 'Where Does That Leave Me?', Chelsea Berman's latest single, 'If I Had A Daughter' looks at painful mistakes in a new light. If I Had A Daughter is a song written to her future child, trying to protect them from the same hardships she has gone through.

Familiar listeners to Berman's music will attest that breakup heartache is a common theme in her writing, but it is usually accompanied by a foot-tapping beat, a twangy guitar, and catchy lyrics. This is not the case for her latest offering, though, stripping everything back to allow the raw emotions of the song to punch through.


2. The Buoys - Guard My Heart


Whilst still sounding exactly like a track from The Buoys, this one offers a softer inner shell. The raw emotions felt during the chorus, combined with pain-filled guitar strums and snare smashes, allows Guard My Heart to show its vulnerability as a track.


The Sydney four-piece will be touring around the country in 2024 with more releases set to come.


1. Deadshowws - Two Toned


The latest offering from Deadshowws is yet another cracker. The track builds nicely, starting soft and ending as loud as we've come to expect from the Central Coast four-piece. Known for their seamless blend of self-betterment and self-deprecation, this track delivers everything we know and love about the band.


The release is part of a double single drop, Two Toned and She Said. To celebrate, they'll be going on a mini tour, with stops at Wollongong, Newcastle, and Budgewoi. Fellow locals Jan. will be supporting Deadshowws on their tour.
