Rose Lubransky - Single Review: Head Over Heels

18 May 2021 // A review by Danica Bryant

Wellington’s indie dream girl Rose Lubransky’s latest bedroom pop single, Head Over Heels, is another unique production with home producer and frequent collaborator BushJungle. The song is undoubtedly catchy, with a more anthemic structure and sound than their preceding work.

Lyrically, Lubransky’s exploration of a modern day crush perfectly narrates both the excitement of romance, and the embarrassment of feeling vulnerable as a result. Her imagined scenes of “running through flower fields” are quickly followed up with the self-deprecating admission that she may be too “cheesy”, answering the niche of young people today’s almost satirical views upon love.

Lubransky and BushJungle’s production embraces its homemade stylings. The song focuses on the jaunty tone and rhythm of the electric guitar, whilst featuring the simple electronic drum beats and easy backing vocals common to the indie genre. Whilst the vocals may be slightly over-distorted at times, Lubransky’s voice ultimately carries the track with a genuine sense of joy, and it is clear that the pair delivered on a specific creative vision. One of Lubransky’s cited influences, Clairo, is the most direct comparison to be made.

What Head Over Heels does best is set the glittery atmosphere its lyrics dream up. For fans of bedroom pop, Rose Lubransky’s latest effort is worth the listen, blending well with the era of Soundcloud discographies and lo-fi production aesthetics.

VÏKÆ - Single Review: Moon City
16 Sep 2021 // by Danica Bryant
Vikae melds pulsating commercial pop with the climatic reach of drum and bass on latest release Moon City. Produced by Will Henderson and written during the March 2020 nationwide lockdown, the song is an emotionally charged ode to the end of a relationship, mourning physical separation and filtering through feelings needing to be “put to rest”.
EM/FM - Single Review: Close Enough
28 Aug 2021 // by Danica Bryant
From the library of mysterious Kaitaia artist EM/FM, Close Enough is a synth-filled slow jam, introduced by its bright retro wave artwork which visually represents the track’s creative blend of machine-generated instrumentation with traditional jazz.Close Enough offers a unique song structure, with its groovy chorus not hitting until just before the two minute mark, and a lengthy final chorus section.
Alba Rose - Single Review: Eve
26 Aug 2021 // by Danica Bryant
The captivating hook of Alba Rose’s debut single, Eve, warns listeners of the likelihood that they will be “swept away”. It’s a truthful mission statement for a track which introduces Rose as a soloist, outside of her performances in Wellington band Corduroy.

Sweet Mix Kids are just as flamboyant as the cover of their debut album, Radio With Pictures, would have you believe. Stepping off stages at Coachella, Peachy Keen and Rhythm and Vines, the DJ and production duo have created a record of sensual experience, bending genre and sound to their will.
