Best new music from the Northern Rivers

Here are some of the best new songs from the Northern Rivers music scene from some of our emerging local artists.

Pasiflorez – Moonroof

On their Unearthed profile, Pasiflorez say they sound like Pitbull but in all honesty, Pitbull probably wishes he sounds like Pasiflorez. Moonroof is the psychedelic, chiller rock single from the Byron band which will be a hit with fans of Tame Impala. It’s relaxing without entering snoozeville, it takes you places.

JPL – Ghost ft Bri Clark

JPL bought in the new year with a new single and Ghost showcases his exceptional production skills with some richly textured pop. Bri Clark joins the track with some exquisite vocals as the two bounce off each nicely for a slow burning hit.

Luke Morris – Love Shack

It’s a pretty simple set up here: there’s Luke Morris’ and Angie Hudson and a gentle folk beat in support for a beautiful little track. A stripped back track can often leave you wanting something more but Morris’ vivid songwriting elevates this to another level. Hudson and Morris provide a dream pairing that’ll leave you swept up in the moment.

Nicholas Hamilton – Different Year

If you like Troye Sivan, you’ll be all about Nicholas Hamilton’s Different Year. It’s definitely an impressive debut for the social media star, which he co-wrote with friend Britton Buchanan. There’s definitely scope for Hamilton to push his boundaries more especially with his range, it’ll be interesting to see what comes next for the Lismore-born actor and singer.

Wildfire – Live the Dream

After a year which locked us to our houses at times and prevented anyone from tearing up the dance floor, Live the Dream is the track that gets you moving again. It’s continuous groove grabs you from first minute to last and you’ll be foot-tapping in no time.
