Dive into Rolling Stone AU/NZ‘s weekly roundup of our favourite Australian music from the past week. Explore the freshest tracks from local artists released between March 25th-March 31st below.

Blusher – “Accelerator” 

Currently touring the US with Icelandic artist Dadi Freyr, the Melbourne pop trio propels into the fast lane with their latest turbocharged dance anthem, “Accelerator.” It’s Blusher on steroids—high-octane, electrifying. “’Accelerator’ feels like Blusher with the saturation turned up to 200%. “‘Accelerator’ is a big budget action movie, it’s a late-night highway chase, it’s James Bond in drag,” they say. 

Cosmo’s Midnight – “Chance on You” (feat. KUČKA)

Aussie twin brothers Cosmo and Patrick Lineu almost never miss a beat when it comes to catchy pop designed for airwaves and sun-soaked festival stages. Their funky melodies, bouncy basslines, and strategic collaborations have made them favourites at home and abroad. Their latest dance-ready track with singer-songwriter KUČKA has a chorus that sticks in your head from the first listen, and brings back memories of carefree summers. Hard to resist.

Forest Claudette – “Gold” 

Forest Claudette – the moniker of Kobe Hamilton-Reeves – has shared “Gold”, a soulful preview of their upcoming EP Jupiter, out May 3rd. With its rich R&B production and wistful vocals reminiscent of artists like Daniel Caesar, Claudette is proving to be an effortless creator of smooth and spiritual songs that just keep getting better. 

Ruel & DMA’S – “What a Life” 

Two Aussie talents collaborating on catchy guitar pop? Count us in. Ruel and DMA’s have joined forces for a couple of new tracks, sparked by their fruitful writing sessions for Ruel’s music. First up, there’s “What A Life”, an upbeat guitar-driven track with infectious chorus melodies. And stay tuned for “We’re A Pair Of Diamonds”, a heartfelt piano ballad teased during Ruel’s performance with DMA’S last year at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney.

Jet City Sports Club – “Chamomile” 

Sydney’s indie pop outfit drops their latest EP, Every Single Dream, inviting listeners to escape into a world of small joys. The feature track, “Chamomile”, marries indie pop sweetness with gritty grunge, exploring themes of love, mundane bliss and soaking in the sunshine.

The Buoys – “Subject A”

Sydney punks The Buoys have released their second single of the year “Subject A”. The unapologetic track addresses the male gaze and the pressure to conform to societal standards of coolness and attractiveness.  “The song celebrates all the things you now refuse to change about yourself in order to fit in to be seen as cool,” they say. 

The Dreggs – “Peeps With The Goods” 

With their debut album dropping later this month, the indie folk band unveils a softer side to their music with the soulful track “Peeps With The Goods”, co-written and recorded alongside Matt Corby. It’s perfect for a road trip, conjuring images of warm breezes and sunlight streaming through the window.
