5 Songs You Shouldn't Miss Today

Written By Sam Murphy on 03/03/2015


There were a flood of tracks that came out today. From Kanye to Action Bronson to our very own Courtney Barnett, it seems that March is the month everybody has picked to drop new material. We didn't want the day to go by with you all missing out on what's on offer so we thought we'd package them all here for you convenience. Your welcome.

EDIT: As I was writing this Cashmere Cat dropped a new song. SRSLY WTF IS UP WITH TODAY.

George Maple
Where You End And I Begin (Feat. Grande Marshall)

You know an Aussie artist is good when she can stand out on a day when some of the biggest names in music drop new tracks. Future Classic's latest hope George Maple has today delivered us Where You End And I Begin and detailed the tour she's set to embark on. The new track is giving us strong throwback Mariah Carey vibes with sultry synths complimented by Maple's airy vocal. It's the first time the singer has channelled more of an RnB vibe than a brooding electro-pop aesthetic and it works completely. The addition of rapper Grande Marshall is a nice touch too.

Action Bronson
Baby Blue (Feat. Chance The Rapper)

"Action Bronson is really one of my favourite people out there making music so we did a couple songs and one of them I think is going to be the next single," Mark Ronson told triple j last month and voila, here it is. This is basically a dream-team of the hottest things around right now and rightfully so it sounds brilliant. It's probably the most explicitly melodic thing we've heard from Mr. Wonderful yet and we can thank Chance The Rapper's oddly soulful hook for that. Ronson ensures that the production is modern while being exquisitely classic - horns included.

Cashmere Cat
Adore (Feat. Ariana Grande)

Life is all about creating and returning favours and that's exactly what Cashmere Cat and Ariana Grande have learnt. Cashy produced Be My Baby on Grande's latest record and now she has contributed vocals to his track Adore. The pair of them together are like Ilana and Abbi from Broad City in that they are a match made in heaven and nothing will ever come between them <3 This will probably appear on Cashmere Cat's debut album if he has time to release it in between becoming the world's biggest pop producer and all.

Courtney Barnett

So, Courtney Barnett is basically our biggest export right now. She's gearing for the release of her debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit at the end of this month and the internet is lapping up the news. Depreston follows the first single Pedestrian At Best and demonstrates a distinctly different tone. On Pedestrian she was like a steam-roller but her she far more gentle, melancholic even. She's also about to head out on a world tour which she's no doubt going to kill so good for her.

Ratchet Commandments

Chicago rapper Tink has been chipping away at the scene for a while but it seems she's ready to officially arrive. She's been working with mega-producer Timbaland and this is one of the cuts the pair have worked on together. The beat has an undeniable funk to it whilst just bubbling under Tink's cocky vocal. If anything, it's taking us back to Tim's work with Missy Elliot back in the day. Tink establishes a clear voice from the get-go with an effortless flow that manages to create moments of gasping excitement. 2015 is going to be the year when Tink hits the big time and it may be the first artist in a long time that Timbaland has introduced to the mainstream.
